Book Launch | Homelands: Four Friends, Two Countries and the Fate of the Great Mexican-American Migration

Today, immigration politics are at the forefront of U.S.-Mexico relations. Prize-winning journalist Alfredo Corchado explores the past and future of the immigrant story in his new book, which merges the political and the personal, telling the story of the last great Mexican migration through the eyes of four friends.

Homelands: Four Friends, Two Countries and the Fate of the Great Mexican-American Migration examines the complicated, symbiotic relationship between the United States and Mexico, and how it has affected Mexican-Americans over the last several decades.

Join us for a discussion with the author and a panel of experts on the nature of U.S.-Mexico immigration and the role of Mexican migrants in the United States.
