What Does It Take To Call A Place A Home

February 16, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm

According to the most recent information, some 104,000 undocumented immigrants live in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. Some 87,000 of this group have come from our neighboring country, Mexico (83%). 

This conference unveils a comprehensive study of the socioeconomic profile of undocumented immigrants and their regional and statewide economic impacts. The economic impacts will be captured through gross regional products, labor income, employment, and tax revenue at local, state, and federal levels.

Join us to:

  • Hear from our expert panel with specialists from the two sides of the border, Mexico and the United States. They will share their views and research findings on various pertinent social, economic and legal issues of undocumented immigrants and their challenges before and after settling.
  • Hear from our keynote speaker to listen, ask questions, and reflect on every topic and issue that the conference will bring to the attention of its audience.
  • Watch a short video of a visit by a group of students and faculty to migrant shelters in Tijuana, Mexico.
  • Our colleagues will also present perspectives of transitory migrants as they navigate their lives in transit – either in Mexico or across the border, in the US and they will share some of the findings of interviews carried out by our students under their professors’ supervision.

Breakfast and Lunch will be served. Tickets cost $40 each.
