The novel coronavirus epidemic has challenged the path of human growth. It has reassured mankind why development and not growth should be of primary concern for humanity. Ever since the onset of the industrial revolution, ecology and social wellbeing have been compromised for the economy. However, with the epidemic challenging the economic structure, it begets humankind to find sustainable solutions that balance all these three facets of industrial growth, ecological sustainability and social wellbeing.

The political narrative of immigration trends is that people are fleeing their countries to exploit American resources. Immigrants are generally depicted as violent, the cause of crime and job loss, not only in America but around the world. The undercover criminal narrative overshadows that of the risk-taker, willing to leave what is familiar to improve the life of his or her family. The stereotype of violent behavior overshadows the violence enacted upon them by their host countries which have put many immigrants in the situations they are in today. It is well documented that immigrants, and especially undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit crimes.

According to the most recent gender report by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) “disease outbreaks affect women and men differently, and pandemics make existing inequalities for women and girls and discrimination of other marginalized groups such as persons with disabilities and those in extreme poverty, worse” (COVID-19: A Gender Lens). The COVID-19 crisis has affected and continues to affect every aspect of our lives, raising anxieties, limiting spaces, and intensifying tension and conflict in different areas.
