Pulitzer Prize-winner Sonia Nazario speaks about immigration Oct. 6

Using Pulitzer-winning photographs, Sonia Nazario takes you inside the world of millions of immigrant women who have come to the U.S. as single mothers, and the children they leave behind in their home countries in Central America and Mexico.

Enrique’s Journey: The Face of America’s Newest Immigrants

Tuesday, Oct. 6
4 p.m.
LSC North Ballroom

Sonia Nazario discusses the modern-day odyssey many child migrants - some as young as 7, all of them traveling alone - take years later riding on top of freight trains through Mexico in their quest to reunify with their mothers in the U.S.

Nazario, who spent three months riding on top of these trains to tell the story of one child migrant, will describe how that journey changed her view of migrants. She’ll also discuss America’s immigration controversy and why she believes the three solutions, the same ones being proposed again by President Obama - simply won’t work.
