Jean Guerrero is the author of CRUX: A Cross-Border Memoir, winner of the PEN/FUSION Emerging Writers prize. She is an Emmy-award-winning investigative reporter covering immigration for KPBS TV, radio and online in San Diego; she contributes to NPR, PBS and other public media. Her reporting was cited by a Congressional inquiry about the Trump administration’s family separations months before they captured national attention. She started her career at the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires as a commodities correspondent in Mexico City, trekking through mountains with coffee smugglers, opium poppy producers and maize farmers across Latin America. She was picked as one of San Diego’s “Best People” by the San Diego CityBeat. 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
