"Mexicans and the Future of the American Dream examines the lives of Mexican society and government officials in the United States. The 2016 U.S. Presidential election marked a defining moment in the lives of Mexicans in the United States. It rekindled nightmares in many Mexicans and pitted a new generation of Mexicans and Mexican Americans against a shift in politics. In this book, national experts and former government officials explore the direction and magnitude of Donald J. Trump's shifts in immigration policy in three areas: consular strategies put in motion after the election, drugs, and bilateral relations. Insights from nineteen Mexican consulates throughout the U.S. territory, in states both favorable and against immigration, demonstrate shifting perspectives of government officials and that of Mexicans visiting consulates for formalities, getting orientation on a range of topics, or just to asking for help.
