Daniel E. Martínez is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Arizona and affiliate of the Center for Latin American Studies as well as the Mexican American Studies Department at the University of Arizona. His research and teaching interests include race and ethnicity, unauthorized immigration, and criminology; with particular interest in the increasing legal and social criminalization of unauthorized migration.
Dr. Martínez is one of three co-principal investigators of the Migrant Border Crossing Study, a Ford Foundation-funded research project that involves interviewing recently deported unauthorized migrants about their experiences crossing the US-Mexico border and residing in the United States. Martínez’s current research focuses on the relationship between so-called “sanctuary” policies and city-level crime rates.
Dr. Martínez's talk is entitled: “Immigrant Political Opportunities and Crime Reporting Behavior: A Multilevel Analysis of Latino and Other Minority Victims’ Odds of Reporting Victimization to Law Enforcement”, which was co-authored with Ricardo Martínez-Schuldt, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
