‘Immigrant Means Family to Me’
We’ve been a little quiet this week at Voices Beyond Borders—we’re hard at work producing some upcoming features. One of the stories is an interview with Chicago’s Director of the Office of New Americans Adolfo Hernández (pictured above).
Hernández is an integral part of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s effort to make Chicago “the most immigrant-friendly city in America.” Raised by immigrant parents in the Little Village neighborhood on the city’s southwest side, Hernández said his upbringing influences the work he does today.
Check in Friday for the full story and Monday for the audio interview.
