The television show, America with Jorge Ramos, recently interviewed Sona Nazario about, Enrique’s Journey, and the dramatically increasing numbers of children coming into the US without a parent or guardian. The influx of drug cartels as well as gangs that force these young children to smuggle drugs into the US makes them refugees rather than illegal immigrants, according to Sonia Nazario. She also gives an update on Enrique, the protagonist in Enrique’s Journey, and his current situation in the US.

Enrique’s Journey is a popular title for discussions on immigration, with a variety of literary events and audiences. If you would like to choose, Enrique’s Journey, for your reading program contact Books in Common to help set it up.
