Dallas Morning News correspondent Alfredo Corchado has been reporting in Mexico over the past 20 years.
He left the U.S. for Mexico in 1994 – a decision that’s long frustrated his mother. She and his father had moved his family to the U.S. to work as migrant farmers decades earlier.
Corchado writes about his troubled relationship with his birth country in his memoir, “Midnight in Mexico.” A movie is in the works. He recently spoke to KUT about his experiences.
