Undocumented immigrants – especially those who are Spanish-speaking – are under fire on multiple fronts, accused of raising crime rates, taking jobs away from citizens, crashing the economy, and eroding traditional American values.

Florida International University professor Ediberto Román takes on those critics in a discussion of his book, offering a counter-narrative to what he argues is a largely one-sided debate.

Local writer Xánath Caraza opens the evening with a reading of her poem, “De Sinónimos, Eufemismos y Algunos Tropos (Of Synonyms, Euphemisms and Other Figures of Speech).”

The event coincides with the traveling exhibit, Estamos Aqui (We Are Here), on display at the Central Library through October 19, 2014. It showcases the work of largely Chicano-Latino participants in a specialized silkscreening workshop at the Coronado Studio in Austin, Texas.
