Writing Immigration

Tyche Hendricks

This chapter focuses on how California is integrating newcomers and in turn how they reshape the state. Drawing on seven years of reporting, the chapter looks at the history, causes, and context for immigration as well as its consequences. It argues that journalists are supposed to raise questions about the social impacts of immigration and the nation's struggle to integrate immigrant families and, at the same time, to examine the way immigrants and their children assert themselves and transform their new environs. One way to do that is through telling the human stories that help readers understand other people in their communities as individuals. The chapter draws on examples of previous reporting for the San Francisco Chronicle at a time of industrywide changes within journalism.
