Here is the video of a TEDxClaremontColleges talk I gave this summer. It is based on my writings about this topic. As the video’s ABOUT page says, “Throughout history, human beings, especially the global poor, have been in constant movement. Huerta says we should view this migration as a universal human right and treat honest, hard-working immigrants with the dignity and respect that they deserve.”
Dr. Alvaro Huerta is an assistant professor of urban and regional planning and ethnic and women’s studies at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. He is the author of “Reframing the Latino Immigration Debate: Towards a Humanistic Paradigm,” published by San Diego State University Press (2013).
