Fellowship Project: Yojana’s Story. Hundreds of refugees flood over the US-Mexico border every day. It was fate for Amy to represent Yojana’s asylum plea. Though they couldn’t be more different, they connect as mothers — and in an instant, that bond transcends the barriers of culture, language and law. By fighting to save her from certain death, Amy isn’t just fighting a broken legal system, she’s fighting for all the mothers separated from their children. Their shared humanity reveals a complex portrait of the immigration crisis.
