The reason for migration between Mexico and the United States
According to paragraph 2 of article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, "every person has the right to leave any country, even of their own, and return to their country". From the point of view of human rights, currently the situation of our society is incomplete, since millions of people are deprived of their right to emigrate, due to many factors involved in the same.
The issue of Mexico’s migration to the United States remains in force, since it is an issue that, beyond being a matter of simple whims, intervenes many more issues, since it is evident that migration is an essential element in the world economy.
Based on this Douglas S. Massey, Jorge Durand and Nolan J. Malone, in his book "Behind the plot. Migration policies between Mexico and the United States, Mexico ”, Autonomous University of Zacatecas/Miguel Ángel Porrúa, 2009, we are mentioned by the underlying processes in this relevant phenomenon of migration.
The conclusion reached by the authors is that the greatest amount of the responsibility of the current situation of migration policies (whether implemented or interrupted) has the United States, also the authors underline the fact that a political inactivity motivated byEconomic or internal propaganda interests can obtain drastic results and even devastating for people who day by day make the attempt to cross the border that divides us, which is currently increasingly militarized and controlled.
On the other hand in the titled work "born elsewhere", about international migration, development and equity, carried out by Bob Sutcliffe, he mentions that the objective is not to deepen the study of one of these aspects, butRather, try to draw a profile of several of them and their interrelations, both in the field of real phenomena and in that of theoretical debates about them. It aims to mention a wide range of literature on the matter from various fields of study and debate, and implicitly suggest the addresses that other more specific and concrete research can take.
