The National Autonomous University of Mexico, or UNAM, has been hosting an international conference on immigration this week. Starting on August 29th and ending today, this international gathering of specialists have been discussing prospective migration between Mexico and the U.S. According to the latest census data, Mexican nationals account for 79% of the undocumented immigrant population in the United States, which is about 6 million residents. The three day conference put on by the School of Social and Political Science at UNAM, asks he questions, “Where are we going?” “Where can we go?” and “Where do we want to go.” Two of KPFK’s own Spanish-language volunteer programmers, Rosario Vigil and Ruben Tapia, gave a presentation on Tuesday on the power of Los Angeles radio stations and their impact on the immigration debate.
