Undocumented Lives: The Untold Story of Mexican Migration

Lecture | February 14 | 4 p.m. | 223 Moses Hall

Ana Raquel Minian

Center for Latin American Studies

In the 1970s, the Mexican government acted to alleviate rural unemployment by supporting migration into the United States. As U.S. authorities pursued more aggressive anti-immigrant measures, migrants found themselves caught between the interests of competing governments. Ironically, the U.S. immigration crackdown of the 1980s forced many migrants to remain north of the border permanently for fear of not being able to return to work. In this talk, Professor Minian explores circular migration, which reshaped communities in the United States and Mexico, and shares stories of Mexicans who have been used and abused by economic and political policies of both countries.

Ana Raquel Minian is Assistant Professor of History and of Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity at Stanford University.
