How has the US economic crisis that erupted in 2007 affected flows of Mexican migrants to and from the United States? In this follow-up to Mayan Journeys, the authors provide ample evidence that the lack of assured jobs in the US¿and not concerns with tougher border enforcement¿is driving decisions to postpone (though not permanently forgo) migration. They also show that neither the economic crisis nor workplace raids are inducing migrants already in the US to return home. Drawing on responses to more than 1,000 surveys and some 500 hours of in-depth interviews in the both Yucatán and the US, the authors document the economic coping strategies of migrants and their families, how migrant workers navigate the US job market, and how health, education, and community participation are being shaped by the economic crisis. A groundbreaking chapter explores how a ¿youth culture of migration¿ develops in a migrant sending community.
