Drawing on decades of fieldwork in a high-emigration town in central Mexico, as well as nearly a thousand recent interviews, the authors investigate who migrates, how people-smuggling operates, whether border enforcement affects decisions to migrate, and migration's impact on family, health, and hometown economy. Their work sheds important new light on debates central to international migration studies. -- Back cover
Migration from the Mexican Mixteca : a transnational community in Oaxaca and California( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides a vivid portrait of a transnational migrant community anchored in both the remote Mixteca region of Oaxaca and the San Diego metropolitan area. Drawing on surveys and interviews with migrants and potential migrants conducted by a binational research team in 2007-2008, the contributors show how the Oaxaca-based and the California-based natives of the town of San Miguel Tlacotepec have built parallel communities separated by an increasingly fortified international border. Their findings shed important new light on a range of vital issues in US immigration policy, including the efficacy and impact of border enforcement, how undocumented status affects health and education outcomes, and how modern telecommunications are shaping transborder migrant networks."--Book cover
Impacts of border enforcement on Mexican migration : the view from sending communities( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important new book reveals how the stricter US border-control activities of the past decade have affected the behavior of migrants and potential migrants in rural Mexico. The authors establish direct links between changes in immigration-control policies and changes in the decision to migrate, choice of destination, mode of entry, and inclination to participate in a temporary worker program. They also point to the unintended consequences of new control measures, such as the increasing rate of settlement among illegal migrants, higher fees paid to professional people-smugglers, increased injury and fatality rates due to clandestine entry, and changing composition of migrant flows. Collectively, they present detailed and direct evidence of the failure of post-1993 US strategy to deter unauthorized entry across the US-Mexico border, and the reasons for this failure."--Book cover
Mexican migration and the U.S. economic crisis : a transnational perspective( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on 1,031 survey interviews and more than 500 hours of in-depth unstructured interviewing, on both sides of the border, this volume is the first fieldwork-based study of how the U.S. economic crisis that erupted in 2007 has affected flows of Mexican migrants to and from the United States. Focusing on Tunkás, a migrant-sending community in rural Yucatán that they first studied in 2006, and its satellite communities in southern California, the researchers find that it is the combination of poor job prospects in the United States with higher costs of migration (mainly, people-smugglers' fees) that has discouraged new migration in recent years, among both legal and unauthorized migrants. They also find that neither the economic crisis nor workplace raids and other forms of interior enforcement are inducing large numbers of migrants already in the United States to go home. The researchers document the strategies that have been developed by migrants and their dependents in Mexico to cope with the economic crisis, how migrants navigate the contracting U.S. labor market, and how the economic crisis is affecting health, education, and community participation on both sides of the border. A ground-breaking chapter shows how a 'youth culture of migration' develops in a migrant-sending community. This volume is the fifth in a series based on the research of the Mexican Migration Field Research and Training Program at the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies, UC San Diego."--Publisher's description

Mayan journeys : U.S.-bound migration from a new sending community( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yucatán, an impoverished state in southern Mexico, has recently emerged as a significant source of US-bound migrants. Why did this state's indigenous population wait so long to enter the migration stream, and how do their experiences differ from those of earlier more traditional migrants? Mayan Journeys explores how internal migration to southern Mexico's tourist resorts serves as a springboard for international migration and how the new migrants navigate enhanced obstacles at the US-Mexico border and enter the US labor force. Drawing on an extensive 2006 survey of migrants and potential migrants in Tunkás, Yucatán, and its satellite communities in Southern California, the authors provide new evidence of the failure of US border enforcement to deter undocumented migration from Mexico"--Publisher's description
