Video of this event will be posted here soon.

The flux of mass migration and repatriation from Mexico and back entails a high degree of human suffering, abuse and exploitation—at the border and on either side of it—as well as a large population significantly marginalized from normalcy and human development. The program titled U.S.-Mexico Migration Dialogue—Migration, Repatriation, and Protection: Policies and Options will examine progress made under the current U.S. and Mexican administrations to address these issues, and in particular explore how bilateral cooperation could do more.

This panel will focus on both U.S. and Mexican policies towards migrants and deportees, the experience and treatment of minors, and an examination of the challenge of successfully reintegrating repatriated migrants into Mexican society. The conference will feature: Daniel Hernández Joseph, Director General, Protection of Mexicans Abroad, Mexican Foreign Ministry; Aarti Kohli, Director of Immigration Policy, Warren Institute, University of California, Berkeley, School of Law; David Martin, Principal Deputy General Counsel, U.S. Department of Homeland Security; and Dr. María Dolores París Pombo, Professor, El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (Tijuana).
