The New Mexican - Americans: International Retirement Migration and Development in an Expatriate Community in Mexico

    If you did a Google search right now on the subject of U.S.- Mexico immigration, you would probably find thousands of resources, documents, and web-pages all dealing with what is often referred to as the immigration problem. The question is generally consistent across many fronts: how to deal with the millions of undocumented Mexican immigrants from Mexico who are seeking a better life in the U.S.? While this kind of immigration between the U.S. and Mexico certainly is important, it is not the only kind of migration between the two countries. While much of what may be deemed dominant migration theory details the migration experiences primarily of so-called labor migrants and South-North migrations between areas of lesser development to more developed regions, important exceptions exist and are notably understudied.
