Seeking Participants for Research Project on the Consequences of Detentions and Deportations

Dear all,

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,

  1. Out of curiosity, are you looking at ‘negative’ cases, cases where mixed status/undocumented families didn’t experience a detention, as well? Just curious about the research design.
