About Adolfo Flores

Adolfo Flores is a national security correspondent for immigration at BuzzFeed News.

Flores writes about all aspects of the immigration system in the US and, in some cases, how it affects Mexico. Flores was also dispatched to Minneapolis to cover the George Floyd protests and wrote a story on the history of the Border Patrol unit sent to confront Portland protesters. He previously worked for the Los Angeles Times, Pasadena Sun, and the Pasadena Star-News. A Los Angeles native, Flores graduated from Cal State Northridge.
