IIR's Immigrant Stories Project Adds the Caribbean!

IIR's Immigrant Stories Project Adds the Caribbean!

The Institute for Immigration Research (IIR) is proud to announce that The Immigrant Stories Project is growing. We've added immigrants from the Caribbean!

The Immigrant Stories webpage now includes a new fact sheet and analysis of immigrants from the Caribbean living in the Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD metro areas.

We also have an interview with Dr. Juan Weiss, a Cuban immigrant who arrived in the United States in 1961. He became a well-respected doctor who contributed to a major scientific discovery on HIV/AIDS. Dr. Weiss's story is truly inspirational.

This web publication aims to provide essential information regarding immigrant populations in the Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD metro areas by combining data and personal stories. In addition to the Caribbean, the page includes stories and data on immigrants from India, Bolivia, and Korea. Additional countries of origin will be included in the future.
