Introductory Profile: About Karen Crawford

I interviewed Karen Crawford, an immigration lawyer. She is the mom of my younger sister’s friend, so I do not know her well. Immigration lawyers help immigrants become legal U.S. citizens, as well as keep their clients in the U.S. for as long as possible. Karen has been practicing law for years, and every day she tries to help immigrants not get deported. Karen had a lot of information to share because her job is so interesting. She was very patient and described her job in detail as well as other important information about immigration.

The topics of the interview were immigration, immigration policies, and what immigration lawyers do. Karen described some immigration policies and what immigrants have to endure in the United States. The interview felt like a casual conversation about immigration, and I didn’t have to get her to explain he information because she was very descriptive.
