The Mexico Institute’s current immigration-related programming includes a partnership with the Latin American Program and the Migration Policy Institute to facilitate a series of collaborative regional approaches to migration in the U.S., Mexico and Central America.
The Mexico Institute also manages a U.S.-Mexico Migration Dialogue that brings together federal, state, and local policymakers from both countries, as well as civil society to address shared binational challenges on migration, including improving enforcement regimes, addressing development needs, and preparing both governments for the administrative challenges of legal reform. The Wilson Center recently released a report examining the links between development and migration in the U.S. and Mexico, and a brief analyzing the legal side of Mexican immigration.
