JAUREGUI DIAZ, José Alfredo  and  AVILA SANCHEZ, María de Jesús. Estados Unidos, lugar de destino para los migrantes chiapanecos. Migr. Inter [online]. 2007, vol.4, n.1, pp.5-38. ISSN 2594-0279.

This paper describes how, although the emigration of Chiapas residents to the United States is a recent phenomenon, it has its roots in internal migrations to increasingly distant places. The author traces its development from 1925 to 2003, describing some of the salient characteristics of these migrants: such as the means of transport used to reach the northern border, sources of financing for carrying out the trip, the migratory experience, crossing points, municipalities of origin and places of destination, using data from the Survey on Migration from Mexico's Northern Border.

Keywords : internal migration; international migration; new migration flows; Chiapas; United States.
