ABSTRACT
During the 1980s the Tijuana-San Diego border region was the most common place for unauthorized border crossings into the United Status. Since 1993, when the US government increased its control and surveillance of its border with Mexico, the migration flow of unauthorized workers has been progressively and increasingly diverted to the Sonora-Arizona desert. The purpose of this paper is to document the new routes of Mexican emigration to the United States, and emphasize the consequences for emigrants, specifically in terms of their increased vulnerability.
