Us vs. Them, Then and Now: Understanding Anti-Mexican Rhetoric in Times of Economic Crisis

Lecture Description

Learning lessons from the experiences of the Mexican and Mexican American community and the actions of “white” society during the Great Depression, The Great Recession, the Trump crisis, and other times of strong anti-immigrant rhetoric can help immigrants, scholars, and advocates find ways to redirect the national immigration debate away from the current “us” versus “them” rhetoric towards a constructive dialogue about the role of immigrants in American society today.
