Benjamin Montoya, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of History at Schreiner University, will speak on t he issue of undocumented Mexican immigration to the United States, which seems to defy solution. Dr. Montoya will explain that there is nothing new to the seemingly irresolvable nature of Mexican immigration. His talk will provide an understanding of how the present-day challenges regarding Mexican immigration have precedents rooted deeply in U.S. history.
Dr. Montoya earned his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2015. He studies U.S.-Mexican relations. His article, entitled “‘A Grave Offense of Significant Consequences’: Mexican Perspectives on the U.S. attempt to restrict Mexico’s immigration during the late 1920s,” was published in May 2018 by the Pacific Historical Review. His book, tentatively entitled Risking “Immeasurable Harm”: The Diplomacy of Immigration Restriction in U.S.-Mexico Relations, 1924 to 1932 , is under contract with the University of Nebraska Press. He was also a co-editor of and contributor to Beyond 1917: American Legacies of the Great War , which was published by Oxford University Press in 2017. Benjamin is an Assistant Professor of History at Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas, where he lives with his wife and two children.
