Interchange – Helen Monica Vasquez

Play

Host Andy Mahler speaks with long-time Orange County resident and Texas native Helen Monica Vasquez about her activism on behalf of immigrants. Helen, a retired civil servant, has been a volunteer with the Guadalupe Center in Dubois County which provides services to the area’s Hispanic community which has more than doubled in the last decade. The conversation touches on the melting pot nature of Hispanic Americans, most of whom are direct descendants of the native peoples who once inhabited the North American continent prior to the arrival of the European settlers, as well as some of the myths related to immigration, and the recent wave of concern over immigration issues.
