The New Bedford Standard Times is running a great series titled “The New Immigrants”. New Bedford, Massachusetts was the location of mass ICE raids last year and has been heavily involved in the immigration debate since then.
The new series is focused on the lives of immigrants, their stories, their struggles and their humanity.
