New York Times reporter Damien Cave and photographer Todd Heisler are spending the summer driving north along Interstate 35. Why? They're hoping to paint a picture of how immigration is transforming communities along that route. Cave is normally based in Mexico City, Mexico and says in the week they’ve spent traveling north through Texas, they’re already hearing drastically different ideas about immigration and Mexican culture has changed certain communities in the United States.
Cave will be in Iowa sometime in June, he thinks, for the reporting project he’s calling “The Way North.” He wants to get in touch with Iowans about where along I-35 he should visit and who he should meet. We’ll check back in with him throughout his travels. If you have an idea for him, find more information here or tweet him @damiencave.
