I set out to complete my honors capstone in the hopes of further preparing myself to enter the field of television news producing. As an undergraduate in American University’s School of Communication, I have developed a desire and passion to become a TV news producer. Under the direction of Professor Wendell Cochran and other editors and producers at the Investigative Reporting Workshop, I gained firsthand experience in the production process by contributing to a forthcoming PBS Frontline documentary on immigration detention. I assisted the editors and producers who were working on this project by looking into state and federal immigration policies; investigating lobbying efforts at both the state and national level; and analyzing the key political players behind the immigration debate in America, particularly those politicians who were involved in matters or policies concerning the topic of immigration detention.
