Sonia Nazario Featured Social Journalist, Author, Humanitarian
Sonia gives a 25 minute commencement speech at Rice University (begins at 1 hour mark).
Pulitzer Prize winning writer Sonia Nazario takes you on a personal, powerful, emotional journey to show why three solutions pushed for decades by U.S. politicians--both on the left and the right—to stem illegal immigration have failed. The author of Enrique’s Journey, possibly the most read book about immigrants to the U.S., asks: What if we did something radically new, something that works?
With 10 people dead in San Antonio, Texas, following a human smuggling attempt, we look at how the U.S. border crackdown is contributing to human trafficking and increases in death among immigrants fleeing violence in Central America. We speak with Sonia Nazario, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and board member of Kids in Need of Defense.
