The First Amendment Awardee and speaker for this year's event
is Alfredo Corchado who is an award-winning Mexican-American journalist and author.
He has covered Mexico for many years, and is currently the Mexico City bureau chief of The Dallas Morning News. He specializes in covering the drug wars and the U.S.-Mexico border, writing stories on topics such as drug cartels and organized crime, corruption among police and government officials, and the spread of drug cartels into U.S. cities.
Corchado is the author of Midnight in Mexico: A Reporter’s Journey (2013 Penguin Press),
"the story of a journalist’s dangerous and notable efforts to report on Mexico’s horrible drug wars."
Corchado's latest book is Homelands: Four Friends, Two Countries, and the Fate of the Great Mexican-American Migration (2018 Bloomsbury Press). Corchado's new book has been praised by many including David Axelrod, who commented, "This personal, moving tale illuminates the very heart of the polarizing immigration debate that is roiling America today."
