Hi Katie. What have you learned while covering this story that surprised you?

Separately, our criminal justice system does not make a lot of sense to me. I'm wondering if there are some key learnings you can share to help me better understand it. How do things really work? What power dynamics are at play? Any myths you can bust?

Thanks for your work in journalism and for being here today.

One thing that was interesting that I didn't realize before was that most people in large cities weren't struggling to find jobs, but that many working class jobs just didn't pay enough to keep up with the cost of living.

Sounds familiar.

What's the biggest misconception about immigration and the San Diego-Tijuana border? I feel like there are so many false narratives around immigration to the United States... from how people get to the U.S., what they bring into the U.S. with them, what they do once they're here.. etc.

Separately, any stories with positive outcomes that you can share?

How'd you learn the skills necessary to perform all of those functions? Did someone teach you to film/edit/etc. or did you learn online?
