ABSTRACT
This article reflects on the reasons behind an exceptionally predominant Mexican males immigrating to the U.S. First, on a transnational level, the once typical patterns of male recurrent migration, with multiple border crossings over a working career, has been replaced by a pattern of more permanent migration. Second, on the U.S. national level, provisions of immigration legislation, such as that of the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform Act that provided amnesty to at least 2.3 million of the Mexican undocumented, had family reunification provisions paralleling other immigration legislation concerned with documented immigration. Third, and on a more social-psychological level, is a changing family dynamic in Mexico which includes a stress on companionate marriage among women in their mid-thirties and younger.
