ONA LA: BuzzFeed’s Adolfo Flores: Covering the Migrant Caravan

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA LA

Adolfo Flores covers immigration for BuzzFeed’s national security team, where he’s written about immigration detention and a bail bond company for immigrants that’s been investigated by the federal government.
Last year, he was embedded with a caravan of migrants making their way through Mexico towards the US border. His report became part of a national dialogue about a crisis at the border.
Check-in begins at 6 p.m.
