Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses the Mexico–U.S. migration policy. It first defines migration policy and describes the barriers to cooperation between the source states and the migration host. It then reviews the history of migration policy within the U.S.–Mexican system, and notes that these two countries created one of the first managed international migration regimes during the Second World War. The article also examines the prospects for collaboration in the modern period and identifies some additional areas for possible research.
