As Mexico City bureau chief for The Dallas Morning News, Alfredo Corchado has been praised as the “top American journalist covering Mexico today.” His courage and commitment have earned accolades and death threats. The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University noted that Corchado’s unflinching reports about the violence and political connections of the notorious drug cartels chronicled in his first book—Midnight in Mexico— would scare off most other journalists.

Now Corchado offers a fresh and very human perspective on the topic of immigration. From his family’s journey from Mexico to the United States and boyhood days as a migrant worker in California, to his naturalization as a U.S. citizen, college education and successful ascent to journalist for the Wall Street Journal and other leading publications, Corchado’s story—woven with those of three long-time friends—illuminates the hopes, dreams and realities of countless individuals who come to the United States in search of a better life. 

In Homelands: Four Friends, Two Countries, and the Fate of the Great Mexican-American Migration, Corchado examines one of modern America’s most profound transformations. Since the mid-1980s, Mexican Americans have become the largest single minority in the United States—changing the color, economy and culture of our nation. This evocative discussion will consider what is truly at the heart of immigration.
