Faced with an influx of immigrants, many of them from Mexico, it was the first city to pass local ordinances that banned hiring or renting to unauthorized immigrants.

A handful of simple facts tell the story.Access HERE

To ask: How can the U.S. compete and win in the world over the next decade?Access HERE

This Center was created by the university with the Cisneros’ generous $7 million donation last summer, with the goal of empowering Latino high-achieving students. Click here to view the article.
