“Immigration is one of the most important issues in the United States right now,” said Lourdes Cárdenas, Journalism Professor at San Francisco State University and the co-organizer of the conference." As journalism professors, we need to provide our students with more tools to cover this topic.”

Panelists include Alfredo Corchado a Mexico Border correspondent from the Dallas Morning News, Monica Campbell, senior radio reporter for The World, Angela Kocherga, immigration reporter for the Albuquerque Journal and Dianne Solis, former immigration reporter from the Dallas Morning News.
