Immigration in the Time of Economic Crisis: Downturns and Returns in US/Mexico Relations
Conexión Américas is proud to join The Center for Latin American Studies at Vanderbilt, along with The Wilson Center, to host a roundtable discussion on the effects of the recent economic downturn on Mexican immigration to the United States. The panel will bring together leading experts to analyze the interrelation of immigration, ...economic crisis, and increased border security- and what this means for Mexico as well as the US. Featured will be Jorge Durand, who is a leading expert on Mexican immigration issues. He is also a CLAS Visiting Resource Professor and the author of “Crossing the Border: Research from the Mexican Migration Project”. Panelists include Vanderbilt faculty Katharine Donato (Sociology) and Gary Gerstle (History) as well as David R. Ayón (Wilson Institute) and our executive director, Renata Soto.
The event is free and open to the public.
