Chapter 4 presents the field work carried out in Mexico in the summer of 2007 in the states of Zacatecas, Puebla, and Jalisco. It first describes how the author outlined those particular sites in the different parts of the country. It then presents some data from the interviews conducted with mayors and other local officials. This chapter shows the multiple ways in which authorities believe that migrants are causing change in the way that their communities behave, whether politically or in other socially relevant ways.
