The economy, in this case, the labor market, is a key part of the story. A basic assumption of many pro- and anti-immigration groups is that Mexican immigration is temporary and tied to crisis in Mexico. Most migration studies explain Mexican migration in terms of poverty and crisis in Mexico. This perspective does not take into account the close ties between the Mexican, the US and the world economies. Migrant destination data for migrants from the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca for the period 1950–1998 illustrates the relationships between the Mexican and US economies.
