Andrew Selee of the Wilson Center noted that we might see a return of circular migration, which would benefit Mexican communities.

The Mexico Institute's Chris Wilson provides commentary on President-elect Peña Nieto's vision for Mexico's economic future
Mexico Institute's Christopher Wilson wrote an article about the U.S.-Mexico relationship with Erik Lee and was published in Site Selection Magazine.
Mexico and the United States share a 2,000-mile border, but only recently have the two countries begun developing healthy bilateral relations, evolving from distant neighbors to cautious partners.
