Fmr. Mexican Population Minister Discusses Migration Patterns

Washington, DC
Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Gustavo Mohar, the former Sub-Secretary for Population, Migration and Religious Affairs, at the Interior Ministry in the Government of Mexico, discussed the changing migration patterns between Mexico and the United States.

In the last few years, net Mexico-to-U.S. migration has fallen to zero. Some of the reasons cited for this are the sluggish U.S. economy and the growing middle class in Mexico, both of which make migration to the U.S. less attractive.

This event was hosted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
