How has the US economic downturn affected Mexicans on both sides of the border? Addressing that question, this volume draws on a 2010 study of Tlacuitapa, Jalisco, and its satellite communities in Oklahoma City and the San Francisco Bay Area. A survey of more than 850 adults and scores of in-depth interviews yield a rich picture not only of how migrants and their families in Mexico are managing with fewer dollars, but also of how US immigration and economic policies affect their everyday lives.
