More Metro Movement

From the Post’s internal announcement:

    Metro is very pleased to announce some changes in its immigration team, highlighted by the addition of Pam Constable as a regional immigration reporter and a move by Nurith Aizenman to cover regional demographics as well as immigrant communities. Pam and Nurith will report to Metro Immigration Editor Ashley Halsey. His team also will include Karin Brulliard, who will continue to cover Latino and other immigration issues from Fairfax County.

    Pam, who comes to Metro from the Foreign staff, is extraordinarily well qualified to cover the Washington region’s growing immigrant communities. A very experienced foreign correspondent, she has been based in India and Afghanistan for The Post, and covered Latin America in the 1980s for the Boston Globe. Moreover, she covered this beat before, as the Metro reporter responsible for immigration and Latino affairs from 1994 to 1999, when she became New Delhi bureau chief in 1999. Pam has spent much of the past year helping to cover Afghanistan for Foreign, and earlier was a deputy foreign editor responsible for Latin America, South Asia and Africa. She recently
    published a memoir of her years in South Asia, and previously co-authored a book about military rule in Chile. She starts her new job in mid-January.

    Nurith, in her new role, will take over coverage of regional demographics previously handled by D’Vera Cohn before Dee took early retirement. Nurithalso will help cover local immigrant communities. This dual assignment builds on the expertise that Nurith gained in the past year in the joint Metro-Foreign beat covering Central American communities here and abroad.

    This “bridge” coverage is now being absorbed into the regional immigration coverage as a whole. Nurith previously covered immigrant communities and education in Prince George’s and Howard counties, and served a nine-month tour in Afghanistan. She came to the paper in 2000, after having worked as an editor at the New Republic and other publications. She starts her new assignment in January.
