UCI Prof. Gilbert G. Gonzalez on Mexican Labor Migration and U.S. Capital

On May Day (Monday, 1 May, 2006), when thousands of immigrants, documented and undocumented, and their allies, are expected to boycott classes and their jobs, to show the contribution people from outside U.S. make to the U.S. economy and society, Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program presented a conversation with UCI Prof. Gilbert G. Gonzalez on the historical antecedents of the immigration issue.

Prof. Gonzalez is the author of numerous scholarly tomes including "Guest workers or colonized labor?: Mexican labor migration to the United States (2006)," "Culture of empire : American writers, Mexico, and Mexican immigrants, 1880-1930 (2004)," "A Century of Chicano history: empire, nations, and migration (with Prof. Raul Fernandez, 2003) and "Labor and community: Mexican citrus worker villages in a Southern California county, 1900-1950." He teaches in the Chicano/Latino Studies program at UCI's School of Social Sciences.
