How US Policies Fueled Mexico’s Great Migration
Here is a (long) history of ‘corporate greed’ attached to the NAFTA agreement allegedly documenting the death of Mexican self sufficiency inciting all the Mexican migration to North Carolina. ICE raids were part of the corporate plan to defeat union organizing.
Obviously biased with thin references, but he makes the following statement of need for ‘immigration reform and control’ that may be on the mark:
In both the United States and Mexico, many migrant rights networks believe that rational immigration reform must address issues far beyond immigration law enforcement in the United States: real reform must change the US trade policies that contribute to displacing people. Gaspar Rivera-Salgado, a professor at UCLA and former head of the Binational Front of Indigenous Organizations, a group of indigenous Oaxacans living in Mexico and the United States, believes that in the United States “migrants need the right to work, but with labor rights and benefits.” In Mexico, “we need development that makes migration a choice rather than a necessity—the right to not migrate. Both rights are part of the same solution.”
