Local to Global: Mexico-U.S. Migration, the Chicago Perspective
The exponential growth over the past decade of the Mexican immigrant population in Chicago reflects a national trend. What are the economic and political factors in Mexico and the U.S. which have produced this notable population shift? Given that much of this population has no possibility of acquiring legal immigration status under present law, why is it that U.S. immigration law has not accommodated U.S. labor market needs? Whatever happened to the binational agreement Presidents George Bush and Vicente Fox were negotiating on September 8, 2001? Plan to attend and hear the implications for the business sector from Ms. Gzesh, who was on The Chicago Council on Foreign Relations Task Force on United States Immigration Policy which just released 'Keeping the Promise: Immigration Proposals from the Heartland.
