I have been working on a project called "Data Wall" that acts as a digital border of statistics for immigration in the United States. The project scope focuses on immigration from Mexico (legal, illegal, and legal permanent residence) for now. I have collected over 15,000 documents from Department of Homeland Security from the 90's to present day about immigration. These documents look at age, sex, location, employment, where they move to, arrests, and a ton of very specific data. With all of this data, we're able to find patterns and information about immigration that may have never been thought about before.
