Join Maureen Meyer and Adam Isacson of the Washington Office on Latin America, whose 2012 report "Beyond the Border Buildup" documents the incredible growth in the U.S. security apparatus, and the humanitarian crisis of migrants, at the border.
Isacson and Meyer have carried out research in six different border zones since 2011, including a November survey of south Texas, and are involved in the fast-moving debate in Washington.
They will be joined by René Zenteno, a professor at the Colegio de la Frontera Norte (COLEF) in Tijuana, Mexico and former Undersecretary for Population, Migration and Religious Affairs at Mexico's Secretary of Interior. Recent studies by Dr. Zenteno in the Mexican Migration Monitor analyze trends in Mexican migration, including an increase in unauthorized Mexican migration in 2012.
