Abstract: 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.
