What is it about?
Stress from anti-immigrant rhetoric and bias has become a part of daily existence for mixed status families across the U.S . The stories (testimonios) of a small group of undocumented immigrants and college students with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) status are explored through in vivo codes. The article examines themes in participants' stories and offers ways in which educators and medical professionals can continue to support mixed status families as they weather the current era.
