Dara has covered immigration in some form for about a decade, stretching back to college (when she observed immigration court proceedings for her senior thesis). A Vox reporter since the site launched in 2014, she's become one of the country's leading immigration reporters. Her explainers, policy scoops, big-picture analyses of the political landscape, and human-interest features are all rooted in the understanding that people need to understand policy to make important decisions about their own lives. She refuses to choose between clarity and nuance. When not covering immigration, Dara's explained everything from federal data on police shootings to the enduring appeal of "moving to Canada" fantasies, She also hosts Friday episodes of The Weeds alongside Matt Yglesias and Jane Coaston. Dara has not given up on her dreams of commuting by jetpack.
