WASHINGTON, DC - The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) recognizes Camilo Montoya-Galvez of CBS News with the 2022 Media Leadership Award, given to individuals whose efforts in the media most accurately depict immigration and immigrants.
Camilo Montoya-Galvez is the immigration reporter at CBS News, covering U.S. immigration policy, the contentious debate over the issue, and the human stories of those affected by a sprawling and complex system at the center of America's story.
In his current role, Mr. Montoya-Galvez has written hundreds of articles, frequently discussed his reporting on the CBS News streaming network and radio, and guided CBS News’ immigration coverage. Over three years, he has built one of the leading and most trusted national sources of immigration news, filing breaking news pieces, as well as exclusive reports and in-depth feature stories on the impact of major policy changes.
Born in Cali, Colombia’s third-largest city, and raised in the sprawling suburbs of northern New Jersey, Mr. Montoya-Galvez strongly believes that storytelling is a vital avenue to inform, shape and bridge a world that—day after day—is more intertwined.
Before joining CBS News, he worked at Telemundo’s television station in New York. He won three NY Emmy awards and received seven nominations during his two years at Telemundo. He is a proud Rutgers University Scarlet Knight.
The American Immigration Lawyers Association is the national association of immigration lawyers established to promote justice, advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy, advance the quality of immigration and nationality law and practice, and enhance the professional development of its members.
