Isabel García Valdivia, ISSI Graduate Fellow and Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology, published a new article titled "Legal Power in Action: How Latinx Adult Children Mitigate the Effects of Parents' Legal Status through Brokering," in the journal Social Problems. "These findings provide an understanding of how the transition to legal adulthood affects the way adult children of immigrants help their undocumented parents access resources and information, negotiate the effects of immigration laws, and reduce some inequality suffered by their families."
