Salvadoran Congresswoman Marina Alvarenga at LUC Nov. 6!

Congresswoman Alvarenga will address migration challenges facing El Salvador, including mass deportations from the United States. Last year, over 50,000 Salvadorans were deported from Mexico and the United States. Now, El Salvador must prepare for the potential deportation of more than 200,000 DACA and TPS recipients who have lived in the US for decades and face separation from their US-born children and other relatives.

The talk will be at 4:00 p.m., Nov. 6, in McCormick Lounge. It is the first event in the 2017-18 Anthropology Department Speaker Series on the theme of Mobility and Immobility. Congresswoman Alvarenga's talk is sponsored by the Department of Anthropology, Latin American and Latinx Studies Program, Department of Sociology, Women’s and Gender Studies Program, and Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.
