Early stage migration

Early-stage migration

  • Tends to be circular

  • Jobs tend to be rural, seasonal, insecure

  • Scattered, multiple destinations

  • Destination support is very limited

  • Family stays home

  • Migrants’ goal: earn & return


Early stage migration family and community

Early-stage migration: family and community

  • Extended families provide support

    • Paying migration costs

    • Raising children

  • Attempt to solve problems internally

  • Effects of migration not easily visible outside families


Examples of family breaking policy

Examples of family-breaking policy:

  • Deportation of migrant members of mixed-status families

    • Family members stressed during long waits in home community

    • U.S.-born children’s bureaucratic limbo

  • Enforcement that pushes people into clandestinity makes for lost connections

  • Less permeable border raises costs: children wait longer to see parents

  • Opaque detention system

    • Migrant relatives difficult to locate

    • Communications prohibitively expensive

    • Health and other problems difficult to address

  • Visa restrictions impede family visits for key family events, illness, other needs
