Abstract (summary)

Migrants from Michoacán, Mexico, have journeyed north to work in the United States for around 150 years, creating lives and maintaining connections “here” and “there.” Mexican national and subnational levels of government have actively institutionalized transnationalism. Michoacános, who number around 2 million in the U.S., are one focus of recent government policy changes toward migrants. This paper proposes that the concept of a transnational (subnational) state best fits Mexico's historical, economic, and political situation. It provides a structure for conceptualizing a transnational state and evaluates Michoacán's transnational activities within this framework.
