When we started Arrived in April 2016, we knew that immigrating to the US was difficult. But we were still surprised just how hard it can be to find accurate, translated information quickly. Our mission is to be the best source of advice, help, and guidance to new arrivals and future citizens of the country.
This article is the first blog post and item in the app's newsfeed. Why this format? The United States is about to undergo the largest change to its immigration policies since its founding. Updates to our (growing, localized) knowledge bank on a monthly or even weekly basis are too slow to capture breaking news or emerging trends. Now we can post to our blog and beam it to our users' devices immediately. These posts will provide realtime news and analyses in Spanish and English about issues influencing immigration in this country on a daily basis. We aim to be a leading voice in this national dialogue, and ultimately a force for good.
We hope you're as excited as we are about the new phase of Arrived.
