What Does It Take to Call a Place a Home?
A Conference on Undocumented Immigrants
This conference will present a comprehensive socioeconomic profile of undocumented immigrants on the central coast of California and their regional and statewide economic impacts in each of the two counties and statewide.
Attendees will watch a short video of a visit by a group of students and faculty to migrant shelters in Tijuana, Mexico. Center for Economics of Social Issues colleagues also will present perspectives of transitory migrants as they navigate their lives in transit, and share some of the findings of interviews carried out by our students under their professors' supervision.
Specialists from both Mexico and the United States will share their views and research findings on various pertinent social, economic and legal issues of undocumented immigrants and their challenges before and after settling.
Breakfast and lunch will be served. Registration required. Tickets are $40 each.
