Ann Theisen of Witness for Peace in Oaxaca and Miguel Pickard White of CIEPAC in San Cristóbal de las Casas describe how international trade policies have led to the migration of large numbers of southern Mexicans to the north. They offer a portrait of an international system of low-skill labor that underpins undocumented migration.

Cross-Border Issues Group (CBIG) reporters Jennifer Vieth, Leah Valencia, Amanda Skotchdopole, Paola López Meneses, and Rodrigo Gúzman Serrano, along with Carolyn Gonzales and Richard Schaefer, participated in the Oaxaca session with Ann Theisen that was hosted by the Centro de Orientactión del Migrante de Oaxaca (COMI) in 2009. Carolyn Gonzales and Richard Schaefer conducted the interviews with Miguel Pickard White at CIEPAC in 2008.
