The Human Face of Immigration
For the unauthorized migrants who risk their lives and their freedom crossing the border from Mexico to the U.S., immigration reform is more than just a political debate. Too often, it’s a tragic personal story of separation, imprisonment and loss.
In a video conversation with Columbian College Dean Ben Vinson, Assistant Professor of Sociology Daniel E. Martínez takes a sobering look at the human face of immigration. His research casts a spotlight on the plight of unauthorized migrants, and the often staggering impact of border crossings on their own lives and that of their families.
