Lourdes Arizpe analyzes how Mexican migrants are being seen in the United States and how they and their non-migrant family members in their rural villages in Mexico perceive their multi-sited lives. She argues that the existing plural vision of the world in their region, shaped by indigenous, Mexican and religious forms and the political philosophies of different periods of the nation's history, is, on the one hand being enriched through migration but, on the other, will be impoverished among migrants if they get trapped as a permanent underclass in the United States.Development (2007) 50, 6–12. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100432
