Are there parallels between attacks on the media in the U.S. and in Mexico? How is immigration covered by journalists in the U.S. and journalists in Mexico? We discuss these questions with Javier Garza, a journalist based in northern Mexico. He covers U.S.-Mexico bilateral issues and is an adviser on journalist safety.
