Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent, as well as deported minors and migrant workers of the Dominican <em>batey</em> settlements.</p><p style="Margin-top:20px;Margin-bottom:0">She was already reporting in Haiti when she began hearing stories about Haitians being abused in the DR. “I made a few trips to the border where people were deported every day,” she told me. “They shared with me troubling accounts. Still, it didn’t seem enough to report on the deportees. I wanted to know what it was like on the other side of the border, the Dominican side, in order to truly get a sense of what was happening.” Today, issues of borders and belonging are making global headlines, and it’s hard not to think of the US administration’s shameful immigration policies, from the Muslim travel ban to family separations at the border to trying to 
end DACA. “Of course, I had the parallel with the DREAMers in the United States in mind, but not only that,” Alami said. “At a time when European leaders and the Trump administration are also trying to deport en masse, it just seemed like an incredibly relevant story globally.”</p><p style="Margin-top:20px;Margin-bottom:20px">Alami calls herself “a real travel addict” for whom “airports have a very comforting feeling of familiarity.” “I have maybe spent only a month in Marrakech since January!” These days, she spends a lot of time in France, where she is directing a documentary feature on anti-racism activists and police violence. What motivates her to keep working on these difficult stories? “I am the happiest when I can share with readers the stories of those that life wasn’t kind to and who managed to rise 
above adversity.”</p>
