WHY THEY COME:
a lecture on immigration
by Dr. Miguel A. De La Torre
The Hennebach Lecture will discuss the historical, social, and cultural reasons why an immigration crisis currently exists— a crisis which was in the making for almost two hundred years. After a historical analysis, a brief discussion will occur as to the conditions faced by those who choose to cross the desert and the expected life in the shadows they will experience if the crossing was successful. Finally, an ethical analysis will occur as to the type of moral response required to this immigration dilemma.
The focus of Dr. Miguel A. De La Torre’s academic pursuit is social ethics within contemporary U.S. thought, specifically how religion affects race, class, and gender oppression. Since obtaining his doctoral degree in 1999, he has authored over a hundred articles and published thirty-five books (five of which won national awards). He presently serves as Professor of Social Ethics and Latinx Studies at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver.
