Event Details

Join Dr. Cristina Salinas for a conversation about her award-winning book, Managed Migrations, which has been described as "a study as paramount as it is timely." This work examines the concurrent development of a border agricultural industry and changing methods of border enforcement in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas during the past century.
