The heated national debate on immigration often brings up the question of why undocumented immigrants didn’t enter the U.S. legally.

Our reporter Natalie Van Hoozer has been researching this topic, and she’s finding that it’s not that simple. She sat down with our News Director Michelle Billman to break down the visa process. 

Here are six things to know.

With continued uncertainty about the future of the Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, a community art project recently stopped at the University of Nevada, Reno, to highlight the issue.

 

The Inside Out Dreamers Project aims to show solidarity with so-called Dreamers by letting community members take their pictures in a photo booth truck. The images are then pasted on the sidewalk for all to see.

Panelists included Reno law enforcement, Councilman Oscar Delgado and the Northern Nevada International Center's Carina Black.

A Reno church held a forum this week in partnership with local law enforcement and community organizations to cover topics for immigrants and refugees. KUNR reporter Natalie Van Hoozer has the story. 

All the seats in Ministerio Palabra de Vida were full, with more than 100 community members. For Pastor Cesar Minera, the location for the forum played a big role in the attendance.
