Latino USA: 9/11’s Immigration Legacy


Twenty years have passed since the tragic events of September 11, 2001

Latino USA looked at that day's immigration legacy, which is listed among the Latino USA episode highlights for 2021. The episode offers many perspectives about 9/11's impacts on immigration.

"One of my most memorable stories of 2021 is `9/11’s Immigration Legacy,' produced by Julieta Martinelli, Alejandra Salazar, and Victoria Estrada. I love this piece for several reasons, including its bold sound design —which we plan to do more in 2022— but mainly because it was a collaborative effort. I loved to see our producers working on this three-part show that weaved in so well together while preserving their different storytelling styles. Furthermore, the piece sheds light on the long-lasting and often overlooked effects of that tragic day on the lives of so many people, a different take on the traditional 9/11 annual story, and the kind of which only very few media outlets dare to do. — Andrea López Cruzado, Senior Editor 

Ahead of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Latino USA‘s team of producers met to plan out the story we wanted to tell. Moving forward, we put together a stunning, hour-long exploration of 9/11’s impact on U.S. immigration policy—and every producer played a role in the making of this piece. This was a fully collaborative effort, and it was only as good as it was because we took it on together. I am so proud to be a part of this team, and episodes like this are exactly why. — Alejandra Salazar, Assistant Editor and Associate Producer"
