Sam Quinones is a reporter for the Los Angeles Times and author of Antonio’s Gun and Delfino’s Dream: True Tales of Mexican Migration.  In 1994, he traveled to Mexico expecting to stay a couple of months.  He was there for ten years.  He says “nuance and complexity form the big, beautiful heart of Mexican immigration.”  That idea shines through the book and his interview Wednesday with Bob.
