Return migration and migration of U.S.-born to Mexico has increased due to the economic impacts of the 2008 Great Recession and the increase of immigration enforcement and deportations. After providing an overview of recent trends and characteristics of migration flows from the United States to Mexico, Dr. Masferrer will discuss how these new migration processes impact migrant families at both sides of the border, the challenges migrant families face for integration, and how the policy implications of these new processes call for binational efforts.
