New articles on immigration, Superfund, and pot-sniffing doggies

I wanted to highlight a few articles I've written since early this year, including a couple of new ones on the nation's broken immigration system. In March, I wrote about citizens in the Bay Area training to become legal observers when ICE officers are conducting enforcement activities. And in June, I wrote about the San Francisco Public Defender's Office launching its new immigrant legal defense team, which also describes in some detail the dire straits immigration detainees are in. 

I recently had my first article published in KQED's science section of its website, about a large Superfund site in the heart of Silicon Valley, and the threat of the Trump administration on environmental cleanup going forward. And I had another in the San Francisco Chronicle about the future for pot-sniffing police dogs in California, now that marijuana has been legalized. That one was pretty fun to write!
