Resumen

This paper examines the meaning of the sharp change of migration
policy in Mexico in mid-2019. The purpose of the change was to exert
greater control of migrants and borders. The paper starts by contrasting
this change with the initial positions of President López Obrador’s
government; positions close to humanitarian and human rights perspectives.
Then, it explores short-term effects and potential long-term
implications, in terms of opportunities and challenges of such a change,
it also examines future directions of Mexican migration policy in the
context of a new government in the United States.
