Migrantes, Mexico and the United States: Lessons from History and Current Challenges

2 pm

Millions of Mexicans have migrated to the United States over the past 120 years—several million without documents and subject to deportation since the 1970s, and over two million agricultural workers known as braceros in the years after World War II. But net Mexican migration has virtually stopped since the great recession of 2008, and has been replaced by Central Americans fleeing political violence migrating through Mexico and across the border into the United States. At the same time, the United States has adopted a much more muscular policyto stop migration at the border. This presentation analyzes the historical arc of these migrations and argues that history affords some lessons about what to expect from current policies.

Manuel García y Griego is Associate Professor of History and Chicana and Chicano Studies at the University of New Mexico. Previously he has held faculty positions at El Colegio de México (Mexico City), the University of California, Irvine, and the University of Texas at Arlington. He has written widely on Mexican migration and bilateral relations.

This event is free and open to the public
