According to the Pew Research Center, there are an estimated 575,000 undocumented immigrants in the Houston metro area. How do they navigate the city? Where do they feel safe?

A panel of experts organized by the Kinder Institute for Urban Research and Houston Immigration Legal Services Collaborative explores these questions, as well as the many obstacles to employment, health care, and other services undocumented immigrants in Houston have to navigate every day.
