Chapter 3 uses the theory laid out in the chapter 2 to test the Mexican case. It begins by noting the particular nature of Mexican migration, its destination, and its recent history. Using quantitative methods, the chapter find that communities in Mexico that have more migrants were more likely to have higher levels of political participation and higher levels of electoral competitiveness and were more likely to vote for the person that became president in 2006 and 2012 among other results.
