Summary
This binational reference for U.S. and Mexican policymakers presents the interrelated issues of Mexican immigration to the United States and Mexico{u2019}s economic and social development. Differences in economic growth, wages, and the employment situation between two countries are critical determinants of immigration patterns, and the migration of labor out of Mexico, in addition to economic and social policies, affects Mexico{u2019}s development. The authors researched the contemporary and historical policy contexts of Mexican immigration to the United States; Mexican economic and social policy and U.S. immigration policy up to 2011; and popular public opinion on U.S.-Mexican relations and migration. They find that there are solid achievements on which to build but that some areas remain in need of further action: Immigration policies in both countries continue to be characterized by unilateralism; Mexico would benefit from further fiscal reforms and antimonopoly regulations; and resolution of troubled trucking legislation demonstrates that the two countries can overcome contentious bilateral issues. They recommend using information tools to understand migration flows and trends and having a single organization committed to recording labor movements of immigrants; stimulating growth in the formal economy and rural areas of Mexico; broadening the tax base in order to improve government revenues and the capability to target social and economic issues; promoting greater market competition; allowing private producers into some segments of Mexico{u2019}s energy sector; allowing for less costly hiring and firing practices by firms in Mexico; making education quality a primary policy objective; reforming pension systems with cash-flow deficits; and improving international understanding through media and educational forums
