Sonia Nazario would love to hear from you if you have read Enrique’s Journey and been moved by the story.

Since Enrique’s Journey was published, readers have reached out to Sonia every day with their thoughts about what the book has meant to them and how it has changed their perspective. Sonia gets emails from students, book clubs, educators, and readers who were moved by Enrique’s story. They tell her it changed their views about the migrants, family, love and determination. In many cases, it prompted readers to get involved to try and improve conditions the book describes—in central america, Mexico, and in the United States.

Did the book change your view about migrants? The immigration issue? The countries migrants are coming from? Your relationship with your parents, especially your mother? What solutions might work to improve conditions in the countries unlawful migrants come from, or in Mexico? What solutions might slow the flow of undocumented migrants permanently?

Sonia Nazario’s latest opinion piece was featured in the LA Times on April 23, 2017. Sonia walks readers through the investments the U.S. can and should make not only to reduce unlawful migration, but get at the heart of why most people are now coming to the U.S. illegally. Drawing from her time researching what is pushing people out of central america, as well as U.S. funded violence prevention programs that are beginning to counteract that violence in places like San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Sonia shares her convictions as to how to best help, not only the citizens of this region, but U.S. taxpayers who need immigration policies that actually work to reduce the flow of migrants.
