Impacts of Border Enforcement on Mexican Migration: The View from Sending Communities (Ccis Anthologies)







Pub Date: 
Publisher:  Lynne Rienner Pub
Summary: 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: e.g., 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.Wayne A. Cornelius is Director of the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, and Gildred Professor of U.S.-Mexican Relations at the University of California, San Diego. Jessa M. Lewis a graduate of the M.A. program in Latin American Studies with Specialization in International Migration, at the University of California, San Diego. Her research has included a study of the links between migration and alternative market development in coffee-producing communities of Oaxaca and work on the private and social profitability of coffee production systems in Costa Rica's central valley.CONTENTS: Introduction?W.
