As many of you know, I am currently a doctoral student at Harvard University. For my dissertation, I am examining the consequences that detentions and deportations have on immigrant young adults and their families. I am currently conducting interviews in San Diego, California with immigrant young adults who have had an immediate family member detained and/or deported (e.g. guardian/parent, spouse, sibling, child).
Here are the eligibility requirements:
- You are between the ages of 18 and 35
- You physically reside in San Diego, California
- Someone in your immediate family has been detained and/or deported from the United States (e.g. spouse, guardian/parent, sibling, child)
If you or someone you know is interested in participating, please contact me to schedule a 60 to 90 minute interview. As a small token of my appreciation, each interviewee will receive $20 for their participation in this study. All of the information provided will remain confidential. I will use pseudonyms and remove all identifying details. The questions in the interview will be focused on your perspectives and experiences around detentions and deportations.
Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions and/or concerns, and if you would like to participate.
Thank you all in advance for your time and help,
