Based on the perspective of transnational return, we examine family return to Mexico, return to the United States, and transnational mobility of this generation. We demonstrate that family members and new returnees are transnationally connected in the Peninsula de Yucatan-California-Oregon migratory circuit; that family return to Yucatan is due to family, social, and economic reasons and return to the United States happens for economic, educational, and labor motivation. Finally, we argue that the new returnees integrate in transnational family dynamics to contribute to generational reproduction and family livelihood in California and Yucatan. En este artículo investigamos la migración de retorno de niñas y niños de origen maya del estado de Yucatán que nacieron en Estados Unidos, que emigraron a México con sus familias cuando eran menores de edad entre las décadas de 1990 y 2010, y que en la actualidad (2018) son nuevos retornados en Estados Unidos. Con base en la perspectiva del retorno transnacional se analiza el retorno familiar a México, el retorno a Estados Unidos y la movilidad transnacional de esta generación. Se demuestra una gran movilidad familiar en el circuito migratorio península de Yucatán-California-Oregón; el regreso a Yucatán por causas familiares, sociales y económicas; el retorno a Estados Unidos por cuestiones económicas, educativas, y laborales; y, la integración de los nuevos retornados en las dinámicas familiares transnacionales que posibilitan la reproducción generacional y el sustento familiar en California y Yucatán. 2020-09-04 2021-06-03T03:39:31Z 2021-06-03T03:39:31Z info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion https://ref.uabc.mx/ojs/index.php/ref/article/view/845 10.21670/ref.2012054 https://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12930/6940 spa eng https://ref.uabc.mx/ojs/index.php/ref/article/view/845/1794 https://ref.uabc.mx/ojs/index.php/ref/article/view/845/1795 https://ref.uabc.mx/ojs/index.php/ref/article/view/845/1796 https://ref.uabc.mx/ojs/index.php/ref/article/view/845/1797 https://ref.uabc.mx/ojs/index.php/ref/article/view/845/1823 https://ref.uabc.mx/ojs/index.php/ref/article/view/845/1824 https://ref.uabc.mx/ojs/index.php/ref/article/view/845/1825 https://ref.uabc.mx/ojs/index.php/ref/article/view/845/1826 Derechos de autor 2020 Estudios Fronterizos text/xml text/html application/epub+zip application/pdf text/xml application/pdf application/epub+zip text/html Yucatán, California, Oregon. 2018 Yucatán, California, Oregón. 2018 Universidad Autónoma de Baja California Estudios Fronterizos Revista; Vol. 21 (2020) Estudios Fronterizos; Vol. 21 (2020) 2395-9134 0187-6961

The new returnees of Yucatec Maya migration in the United States
description In this article we analyze the migration of girls and boys of Maya origin from the state of Yucatán who were born in the United States and who emigrated to Mexico with their families when they were minors between the decades of 1990 and 2010; currently, they are new returnees in the United States. Based on the perspective of transnational return, we examine family return to Mexico, return to the United States, and transnational mobility of this generation. We demonstrate that family members and new returnees are transnationally connected in the Peninsula de Yucatan-California-Oregon migratory circuit; that family return to Yucatan is due to family, social, and economic reasons and return to the United States happens for economic, educational, and labor motivation. Finally, we argue that the new returnees integrate in transnational family dynamics to contribute to generational reproduction and family livelihood in California and Yucatan.
