Mexican Migration Patterns and Trends
Mexican Migration patterns and trends have varied enormously over the years. The changes have been dictated by US Immigration Laws and the labor requirements of the United States. The labor requirements of the United States have resulted in Mexicans either being encouraged to work in the United States in times of short labor supply or, when the employment situation changed, actively discouraged from working in America.

An overview of some of the patterns and trends in Mexican Migration are as explained in the following history timeline:

Mexican Migration - Patterns and Trends

1880's

Mexican Migration Patterns and Trends: Cheap Mexican Labor was required to build the railroads in the south

1900

Mexican Migration Patterns and Trends: By this period the railroads had been built and the trend was reversed

1914

1915

Mexican Migration Patterns and Trends: The war was over, Americans had returned to their homes and Mexican labor was no longer needed in such vast quantities. In the same year US Congress authorized "Mounted Inspectors" along the US-Mexico Border

1929

Mexican Migration Patterns and Trends: The Great Depression resulted in mass unemployment of Americans and as a result many Mexicans were deported.

1943
