Daniel was born in Visalia, California to a Mexican mother and a Puerto Rican father. After learning the importance of his own migration story as a second-generation Latino, he became interested in discovering God’s heart for the migrant. This influenced his research interests, which include theology, ethics, migration studies, and Latinx studies. His research focuses on constructing a biblical social ethic that can positively and proactively respond to the migration crisis. Daniel hopes to serve at the intersection of academia, the church, and the public square to begin to change the narrative of migration within American evangelicalism by building bridges of hope and reconciliation.
