In this talk, titled "Reframing Migration as a Universal Human Right," Dr. Huerta re-frames migration as a fundamental human right. He examines political rhetoric which disenfranchises undocumented immigrants and the possibility of open borders, citing, among others, Dr. Michael Dear's work in examining the US-Mexico divide. "Humans have been in constant movement throughout history, and always will be," says Huerta.
