With around 300 million legal crossings per year, the U.S.-Mexico border is one of the world’s most dynamic areas of human mobility. Despite this connectivity, human mobility between the United States and Mexico remains controversial, as reflected by the failure of the U.S. Congress to address immigration reform. The center works to advance public policies that balance border security and efficiency in the legitimate trade and travel between the two countries.
This project will critically examine the U.S.-Mexico relationship, applying strategic foresight methods to identify the variables that will likely impact the future health of the binational relationship, project the possible outcomes of the relationship under the current political climate, and examine the broader challenges that the U.S. and Mexico will face in the coming decades.
