Holocaust Museum Houston will present a lecture by Dr. Nestor Rodriquez, professor of sociology at The University of Texas at Austin. His research and publications include the topics of unauthorized immigration in the U.S., the migration of unaccompanied minors, border enforcement policies, migrant deaths at the U.S.-Mexico border and conditions of return migration to Mexico and Central America.

In this lecture, Rodriguez explores the escalation of social unrest in Guatemala in the late 1970s and early 1980s that marked the beginning of large-scale Guatemalan migration to the United States.
