Let’s Talk Immigration: Tera Dent

What’s the difference between a refugee and an asylum seeker? Is seeking asylum legal? How do you get it? Learning about our refugee and asylum systems is no small endeavor, but it starts with reaching out and asking questions.

This week on our Let’s Talk Immigration series, field mobilizer Christy Staats sits down with Tera Dent, an academic advisor at Kent State University and mother of three in Akron, Ohio. Together, they discuss Tera’s experience with sponsoring an asylum-seeking family by helping them get settled in the U.S.—and how that’s led her to go from asking questions to calling her representatives.
