Watching Over Greater Mexico: Mexican Migration Policy and Governance of Mexicanos Abroad
Unformatted Document Text:  Watching Over Greater Mexico: Governance of Mexico’s Citizens Abroad By Teresa Carrillo, Ph.D. Raza Studies, San Francisco State University Draft – February 20, 2004 - Comments welcomed: ## email not listed ## Presented at: 2004 Annual Meetings of the Western Political Science Association. March 11-14, 2004. Portland, OR. Paper Abstract: About 10 million Mexicans live and work in the United States. Mexicans abroad constitute one of Mexico's most important constituencies, and the Mexican government is trying hard to engage this sector as citizens through the law of dual nationality, proposals for absentee balloting in the US, and programming and services designed to facilitate governance of Mexicans abroad. This paper reviews federal and state government initiatives in Mexico regarding Mexican citizens abroad (mainly in the US). I examine how an entire tier of government has been established to govern over Mexican transnationals, and how transnational citizenship as practiced by this large number of Mexicans in the US is leading to a reformulation of the immigrant rights movement. Finally, I will examine how these changes are related to the complex relationship between newcomer and more established Latino communities in the US.

Paper Abstract: About 10 million Mexicans live and work in the United States. Mexicans
abroad constitute one of Mexico's most important constituencies, and the Mexican government
is trying hard to engage this sector as citizens through the law of dual nationality, proposals for
absentee balloting in the US, and programming and services designed to facilitate governance of
Mexicans abroad. This paper reviews federal and state government initiatives in Mexico
regarding Mexican citizens abroad (mainly in the US). I examine how an entire tier of
government has been established to govern over Mexican transnationals, and how transnational
citizenship as practiced by this large number of Mexicans in the US is leading to a
reformulation of the immigrant rights movement. Finally, I will examine how these changes are
related to the complex relationship between newcomer and more established Latino
communities in the US.
