Why are there so many Mexican immigrants in the United States, and why are so many of them undocumented? In this History Pub talk, Julie M. Weise, an Associate Professor of History at the University of Oregon, will help us answer this question. Her presentation will discuss the history of Mexican immigration to the United States, the “push” and “pull” factors that have brought so many here, and legal changes that have left so many vulnerable to deportation. She will also be happy to engage in conversation about the Trump administration’s policies towards Mexico and Mexican immigration.
