Jean Guerrero is the author of CRUX: A Cross-Border Memoir, winner of the PEN/FUSION Emerging Writers prize. She is an Emmy-winning investigative immigration reporter for KPBS in San Diego; she contributes to NPR, PBS, PRI’s The World and other public media. Months before Trump’s family separations captured national attention, her reporting about the practice was cited by a Congressional inquiry. She started her career at the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires as a correspondent in Mexico City, trekking through mountains with coffee smugglers, opium poppy producers and maize farmers across Latin America. She was named “Latina Journalist On The Rise” from one of the 15 most influential Latina journalists in Southern California by CCNMA. The San Diego City Beat picked her as one of San Diego’s “Best People.” In her spare time, she surfs and rides horses.
“In the age of Trump, Guerrero is often the balanced voice of reason … when it comes to everything from the border wall to Tijuana drug tunnels.” -San Diego CityBeat
