Resumen

In this paper, we study the conditions of economic reintegration of returning
migrants from United States, which is one of the greatest challenges
they face returning to Mexico. To analyze and evaluate the process of
economic reintegration, a survey was applied to returned migrants
with the objective of collecting information to identify and determine
four types of mobility. The four types of mobility are: sectoral, labor,
income, and job position, considering a before and after the migration
experience. The results show the reintegration has not been easy in
most cases. In fact, most households improved their economic situation
in comparison with their condition before migrating. Additionally, most
have expectations of returning to the US, or want their children to study
and live there. Therefore, these migrants were not completely satisfied
with their economic reintegration process. In the end, we propose some
guidelines for public policy in economic development and economic
reintegration.
