at the NY Daily News
has been writing about migration issues for a long time.
I only stumbled on his column recently after
I had the pleasure of meeting him a few weeks ago.
Ruiz’s reporting reflects an uncommon
consciousness of international issues sparked by close connection to migrant
communities here in NYC.
Here are some
recent examples of journalism that you are not likely to find elsewhere:
Fair medical treatment for detainees,
A 20-year fight for immig[rant] rights
Immigration's human rights shame is
now a moral crisis
Wyclef Jean shines light on Haiti's crisis
Locals can help ease Haiti's pain
from food crisis
You wouldn’t know from the comments sections of these articles that NYC is a
city of immigrants! If you happen to
click over to one of Ruiz’s stories, I encourage you to leave a respectful
comment in support of his reporting.
You will probably be in the minority.
