For most people who are interested in immigration, there is a gap between 280-character hot-takes on Twitter and in-depth news articles. Immigration is complicated, constantly changing, and incredibly polarized. I started this newsletter to give non-specialists a way to learn more about how immigration works in simple, clear language. This newsletter is free.
