6:00 PM Discussion: One Year After the Migrant Caravan Last November at the Tijuana-San Diego border, the migrant caravan arrived, and along with it, a flood of international coverage. Images of thousands of weary people, tear gas canisters, mothers fleeing with children, and makeshift shelters overflowing with sewage captured the public imagination. Yet as media attention waned and families remained at the border, what happened next?

Please join the San Diego chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists at San Diego Central Library's Shiley Special Events Suite (9th floor) on Wednesday, Nov. 6 for a lively discussion on the caravan, the border, and immigration policy. Our featured panelists are veteran journalists from Tijuana and San Diego who will reflect and share their thoughts about what unfolded in the year following the "caravan."

Presenters:
Guillermo Arias, photographer, AFP Tijuana
Vicente Calderon, Editor, Tijuana Press
Inés García, reporter, Zeta
Jordi Lebrija, videographer, Reuters/ Associated Press / CNN
Maya Srikrishnan, reporter, Voice of San Diego
Moderated by Erin Siegal McIntyre, investigative author
