The aim of this paper is to elaborate an overview of the migration of Mexicans to United States to understand the main issues involved with its dimensions and movements, regarding the initiative of Mexican President to attend deported migrants with truncated higher education, announced by Donald Trump´s anti migration rhetoric. The paper begins with a review of theoretical elements that explain the phenomenon of migration; after this, some descriptions of the Mexican migrations to the United States are made; following with a discussion about the current state of the problem from the perspective of the theoretical points; to end up with some reflexive thoughts about an alleged mass deportation of Mexican migrants from United States.
It is likely that the illegal workforce will continue to be tolerated in those places, and types of work where there is no pressure from unemployed American workers. In a need to prioritize deportations, they will start with the migrants with serious felonies and end with the dreamers (those who have a renewable two-year authori- zation to work). A selective deportation policy, including separation of families and children, is likely to be continued as part of a campaign of fear for keeping the feeling of vulnerability among unauthorized mi- grant workers.
