ABSTRACT
The core idea of this paper revolves around movement and change in the process of assimilation of immigrants in the United States and in the conceptual and singular context of trans-border links that emigrants establish with their country of origin, which to some extent grant a particular acceptance within both the paradigm of transnationalism and the category of the transnational migrant. Transnationalism is established as the new transformation of models for the incorporation of immigrants. In the case of Mexican emigrants, the transnational social space is formed via U.S. migratory policy, by the nature and volume of undocumented migration and by the limited actions of the Mexican government.
