I was among 15 college journalists nationwide selected to cover President Obama’s second inauguration with PBS NewsHour’s InaugBlog.
I worked as a videographer on the team and published a TV style video exploring how young undocumented immigrants were reacting to Obama winning a second term in office.
President Obama began his second term in office with a call for comprehensive immigration reform. While lawmakers debate the future of immigration policy, a generation of unauthorized children grows up in America virtually untracked by the government. Jose Garcia, 17, explains his situation in America.
Debbie Suer came to Washington, D.C., from California to attend the 57th Inauguration. At the age of 58, she decided to go back to college.
I also wrote an article showing how education remains a top priority for some inauguration visitors. PBS NewsHour’s “The Rundown” blog also decided to run this story.
The Missouri School of journalism also wrote various articles publicizing Charles Minshew and I for our work on the project.
