Cordell Hull Speakers Forum - Sonia Nazario

Posted: Sun, 09/12/2010 - 15:21

On Thursday, September 16, Cumberland School of Law and Alabama Appleseed will co-host Sonia Nazario, author of the book entitled "Enrique's Journey."  Her presentation and book signing will be held at 6:00 PM in Reid Chapel, Samford University. Prior to the lecture, a panel discussion on immigration issues will be held at 4:00 PM in the Moot Court Room in Robinson Hall followed by a reception in the lobby.

As the legal and political debates over immigration continue, often we miss the point about what drives illegal immigration. Enrique’s Journey tells the story of a Honduran boy’s epic journey to find his mother in the United States. Ms. Nazario’s talk gives a very different perspective about the very challenging immigration issue that our country is facing.
