Jack Herrera

The Herrera family first arrived in Texas over two hundred years ago, when it was the Mexican state of Tejas. Jack Herrera, however, was born and raised in California, and he hopes you won’t hold that against him. Before starting as a senior editor at Texas Monthly in January 2022, he covered immigration and human rights as a contributing editor for Politico Magazine. At Texas Monthly, he covers Latino issues, immigration, elections, and assorted bad news. Herrera was a 2020 Ida B. Wells fellow with Type Investigations, and his work has appeared in the Guardian, the New Republic, the Nation, and elsewhere.
