Maria Hinojosa and her team at Latino USA have been reporting on how Latinos and Hispanics experience and impact the United States since 1992. That ethnic group accounted for more than half of the total U.S. population growth from 2000 to 2014. The Pew Research Center predicts they will make up 24 percent of the population here by 2065.
In addition to her prolific work as a journalist and media leader, Hinojosa is also the author of two books, “Raising Raul: Adventures Raising Myself and My Son” and “Crews: Gang Members Talk with Maria Hinojosa.”
She gave this talk — “Testing the Limits of Due Process Denial: Latinos and Immigrants as the Canaries in the Mine”— as part of the University of Washington’s Graduate School lecture series Equity & Difference: Rights at Kane Hall on November 1, 2017.
