ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis of the Mexican government's efforts to provide some support services for Mexicans who have emigrated to the U.S., such as the "Plazas Comunitarias" program, which provides adult education services, and the Instituto de los Mexicanos en el Exterior (IME). The question of whether these initiatives are effective at helping Mexican emigrants integrate into U.S. society is raised, and a discussion of transnationalism is presented. Research is described involving more than 200 interviews with the administrators and users of these services, and the results are analyzed.
