In the one hour special, Immigration Uncovered: Untold stories of moving North, we peel away the headlines, and bring you the very human stories of people moving away from misery, towards hope.
Immigration Uncovered is a production of Round Earth Media. Our unique reporting method puts two early career journalists on each story: one from the United States, the other from the country where the story happens. With the mentoring support of REM's veteran reporters, they work together in equal partnership to research and report on the same stories – creating the most balanced, comprehensive view possible. Their stories are typically published in at least two countries and languages simultaneously – in both a major media outlet in the United States (New York Times, NPR, USA Today, etc.), and a major media outlet in the country where the story happened. Readers in Omaha see the same story as readers in Mexico City!
Immigration Uncovered is made possible by a grant from the MacArthur Foundation.
