The featured topic for the April edition of Montgomery College's Lyceum Speaker Series, set for Wednesday, April 4, will be the controversial immigration issue. Dr. Rodolfo Hernandez Guerrero, director of the Center for U.S.-Mexico Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas, will discuss the topic beginning at 6:30 p.m. in Building B, Room 102 at Montgomery College.

A ‘meet and greet’ session with the panelists will take place prior to the panel discussion from 6-6:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Following Dr. Guerrero’s presentation, there will also be a question-answer session for the audience.

Under Dr. Guerrero’s direction, the Center focuses on increasing the academic relations between UT-Dallas and Mexico, using an interdisciplinary approach to focus on international education, research, and public service programs. He holds a bachelor’s degree in international studies from the National University of Mexico, a master’s degree in political science from Southern Oregon University, a master’s degree in applied economics, and a Ph.D. in political economy from UT-Dallas. He teaches courses on U.S.-Mexico Affairs, Mexican Political System, and Mexican Economics.

His research interest has been the analysis of U.S.-Mexico relations, Mexican politics, and the demographic transition in Latin American countries with special emphasis on the Mexican case. Dr. Hernandez Guerrero has published in specialized journals and newspapers and participated in news and documentary television and radio programs in Mexico and the United States.
