Our sources this week were chosen by guest editor Domenico Montanaro of the Washington Desk.
Here’s what he had to say about the sources he handpicked:
“With ties to Democratic politics, [Jayme Simões] was one of the people who helped lead the rollout of the ACA in New Hampshire and is a good resource not just as a quotable source but also on who else to talk to.”
“Often the stories we tell are focused on very recent immigrants and the immigration fights on Capitol Hill. But Tran focuses on immigrants who have come to the U.S. in the last 50 years, post-1965, and have largely reshaped American cities.”
