Five Questions with Eladio Bobadilla on Immigration and Catholic History


Eladio Bobadilla is a Ph.D. candidate in U.S. history at Duke University. His dissertation is entitled “‘One People Without Borders’: The Chicano Roots of the Immigrants Rights Movement, 1954–1994,” and explores how Mexican Americans, long ambivalent and even opposed to undocumented immigration, came to see themselves and the undocumented as “one people.” He was awarded a 2016 Theodore M. Hesburgh Travel Grant to consult Father Hesburgh’s papers related to his work on the Select Commission on Immigration and Refugee Policy.
