Social Rights Beyond Borders

Social Rights Beyond Borders

Return, Reintegration, and the 1.5 Generation

(p.142) 4 Social Rights Beyond Borders
From Here and There

This chapter examines variations in diaspora policies across generations and migration status, considering changes in migrants’ precarious status from the perspective of the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. It focuses on the ways in which the rhetoric and implementation of Mexico’s diaspora programs has adapted focusing on the 1.5 generation, and the ways in which these policies have been challenged by returned migrants. In the context of massive deportations that have coincided with the rise of the Dreamers movement and the implementation of DACA, origin countries’ attempts to engage this group reveal the challenges and contradictions of diaspora policies that offer assistance abroad and expand the concept and practice of extraterritorial membership in specific moments and for particular groups, but have limited resources and opportunities for those same populations upon their return to their country of origin.

Keywords:   Dreamers, DACA, 1.5 generation, return migration, deportations, diaspora policies, membership, consular protection, immigrant integration, reintegration
