Children Returning from the U.S. to Mexico: School Sweet School?

Betsabé Román González, Victor Zúñiga

Resumen

Children are international migrants who are not generally considered in migration studies, either in the U.S. or Mexico. In order to explain this gap in international migration research in Mexico, a brief overview will be provided of how migration patterns between Mexico and the United States have evolved over the years.

During the long, initial phase, including the Bracero Program and the period of undocumented flows (1934–1986), migration from Mexico to the U.S. was circular and short-term.
