Four Texas A&M International University criminal justice students shared their research on border violence—a timely topic and one of national interest—to criminal justice experts at a conference in Boston recently.

Norma Arreola, Kimberly Hill, Javier Salinas and Daniella Tijerina presented “The Effects of Violence in Laredo and Nuevo Laredo” at the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences National Conference.

“The Conference is attended by scholars and practitioners from around the world. This is the fifth year that criminal justice undergraduate students attended the national conference,” said Dr. Claudia San Miguel, assistant professor and director, TAMIU criminal justice program.

“The Boston trip was a great experience because we had the opportunity to present to graduate students and professors a topic that we know first-hand and give them a different perspective from what they see in the media,” said Tijerina.

She added that they were one of the few undergraduate groups who participated at the conference.

“While we were in Boston, we also went on a sightseeing tour and saw the Freedom Trail and the Harvard Museum of Natural History. I had a lot of fun and am looking forward to next year’s Conference,” Tijerina said.

The students, all members of TAMIU’s Criminal Justice Association, raised more than $2,000 to fund their travel to Boston.
