May 4, 2020 |

Professor Stephanie Leutert, Director of the Central America & Mexico Policy Initiative at the Strauss Center, recently completed a year-long Policy Research Project (PRP) with a group of graduate students at the LBJ School. The project, titled “Beyond the Border: Central American Migration and Mexico’s Migratory Policy,” took a Mexican policy perspective on Central American migration, and focused on areas including security concerns, the migrant smuggling market, organized criminal groups who exploit migrants, Mexican policy responses, and U.S. border and immigration policies. Their results and policy recommendations are delineated in these three reports. Please find the “two-pagers” for their projects: 1. The Andrés Manual López Obrador Migratory Policy report summary here, 2. The Migrant Caravans in Mexico report summary here, 3. The Migrant Protection Protocols report summary here.
