Engendering Transnational Ties
Laurie Mercier talks with Luz María Gordillo about her new book, "Mexican Women and the Other Side of Immigration: Engendering Transnational Ties." Luz Maria looked at migratory patterns between western Mexico and Detroit, and how men and women differently participate in it. She also comments on racism in immigration policy and the problem of equivocating undocumented workers with drug-dealers.
Luz Maria Gordillo is an assistant professor of Women Studies and on the graduate faculty for American Studies at Washington State University.
