A History of Hate: The Ongoing Fight Over Immigration

In conjunction with the annual Latinx Initiatives Advisory Committee event, Holocaust Museum Houston will host a special presentation and book talk with Dr. Jesus Esparza, editor of the newly published book "The Truth in Our Stories: Immigrant Voices in Radical Times". Immigration has long been a controversial issue in American politics and remains one of the country's most pressing issues, dividing the nation along political, economic, moral, and ethical lines. Critics have long distorted the view of Latino immigrants, depicting them as criminals who corrupt neighborhoods, depress wages, overpopulate the prison systems, and drain the economy.
