Immigration and National Identities in Latin America

University Press of Florida

This chapter analyzes endogenous factors that affected the degree of integration of immigrants into the Mexican national polity. In comparison to that in the United States, Mexico’s small yet influential immigrant population assimilated slowly. The complex relationship between Mexico and its immigrants complicates the stereotype of a xenophilic country serving as “mother of foreigners and stepmother of Mexicans.”
