About Pamela

I mainly cover issues related to immigration policy, immigrant communities and international figures and issues that crop up in our local and regional midst. I also report from Afghanistan and Pakistan from time to time, since they are both countries where I have worked extensively in the past. I have worked as a foreign correspondent in Latin America and parts of Asia and the Middle East during my newspaper career, and have written several books about these regions.
