Fabiola Barreto is a senior studying Mexican American Studies and Government with minors in Business Foundations and History. Her research interests lie within immigration policy, specifically the effects of having local law enforcement serve as immigration agents in communities of color. Previously, she worked with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) in Washington D.C. At MALDEF, she worked on policy analysis of spontaneous changes in immigration law and federal rules. In addition, she also worked in the Dallas office of Workers Defense Project, where she planned an interfaith summit on the intersection of workers’ rights and immigrant rights. To destress, Fabiola enjoys Latin dancing and taking walks in green spaces. After graduation, she plans to attend law school and practice immigration law.
