University of Texas Press #ad - It also complements previous studies on the impact of immigration on the wages and employment opportunities of Mexican Americans. This research into daily lives highlights the centrality of women in the process of negotiating and building communities and sheds new light on identity formation and group mobilization in the U.

S.

Sacrificing Families: Navigating Laws, Labor, and Love Across Borders

#ad
Stanford University Press #ad - Leisy abrego gives voice to these immigrants and their families and documents the inequalities across their experiences. It captures the tragedy of these families' daily living arrangements, but also delves deeper to expose the structural context that creates and sustains patterns of inequality in their well-being.

But the reality of their experiences is often harsh, and structural barriers―particularly those rooted in immigration policies and gender inequities―prevent many from reaching their economic goals. Their dreams are straightforward: with more money, they can improve their children's lives. What prevents these parents from migrating with their children? what are these families' experiences with long-term separation? And why do some ultimately fare better than others? As free trade agreements expand and nation-states open doors widely for products and profits while closing them tightly for refugees and migrants, these transnational families are not only becoming more common, but they are living through lengthier separations.

Sacrificing Families: Navigating Laws, Labor, and Love Across Borders #ad - Widening global inequalities make it difficult for parents in developing nations to provide for their children, and both mothers and fathers often find that migration in search of higher wages is their only hope. Sacrificing families offers a first-hand look at Salvadoran transnational families, how the parents fare in the United States, and the experiences of the children back home.
