The Woodrow Wilson Center's Mexico Institute and the Be Foundation were pleased to host the First Binational Forum on Migration and the Right to an Identity: The Double Invisibility of Mexican Migrants in light of Potential U.S. Immigration Reform. The forum provided for the analysis and discussion of the phenomenon of immigrants whose births went unregistered and who, as a result, lack proof of identity and nationality.

The First Binational Forum on Migration and the Right to an Identity was organized by the Mexico Institute in partnership with the Be Foundation Derecho a la Identidad, A.C., along with the Ministry of Rural Development and Equity for Communities (SEDEREC) and Colectivo Migraciones para las Américas (COMPA). 

Simultaneous interpretation will be provided.
