Linking Immigration, Economic Opportunity, and the Rule of Law in Mexico and Central America.

Immigration is not only a domestic issue for the United States, but a regional one. In this brief, Tony Payan, director of the Center for the United States and Mexico, lays out a policy framework to address the root causes of migration from Mexico and Central America and promote legal, orderly mobility.

The paper is part of a series of Baker Institute recommendations for the new Biden administration.
