One of the most contentious topics in the United States today is what, if any, link exists between migrants and increased crime. This presentation will focus on historical immigration patterns in the United States from a criminological perspective.

We will explore whether data support the oft-repeated allegation that recent immigrants to the United States are responsible for committing more violent crimes. The presentation will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with Dr. Alejandro del Carmen, the Associate Dean at the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, Tarleton State University, Fort Worth, Texas.  

The program will be in English.
