    • Madelyn,

      I was thrilled to read your blog and now that I got the chance to, I feel like I’ve learned a lot about immigration, specifically in Oakland. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Good thing there’s Justicia Lawyers because they can help immigrants and fight for their rights.” I think this is useful because it makes readers realize that “immigrants” are not alone and have lots of support. Another sentence that caught my attention was: “Oakland cares about everyone, the homeless, immigrants, children…” This stood out to me because it informed me that Oakland is a united community where they all support each other regardless of their looks, culture, home etc. Anyways thanks for sharing your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you made me learn a lot; not just about immigration but how Oakland makes sure everyone is safe and how united they are. Again, thank you for sharing this piece of writing and I hope I see more of your writing.

    • Dear Madelyn,
      Hi, my name is Jamie and I am a student at San Jose State University. I enjoyed reading your blog post very much and I thought it was very informative and well-written. I also learned a lot of information about immigration in Oakland from your post that I never knew before. One thing that I found interesting in your post was when you talked about Oakland having affordable health clinics for immigrants and possibly being able to have free check-ins. I think the city of Oakland having that clinic is incredibly important and really inspiring for other communities to see and hopefully follow suit with what they are doing. Thank you for posting and being very informative about immigration in Oakland I learned a lot.

Additionally on the letter you wrote was really inspiring and how you show who you really are and you arn’t afraid to show it. One thing that stood out to me from your letter was…Read More
