Resumen

En este estudio, examino la manera en que la deportación inflige diferentes formas de sufrimiento tanto a los migrantes como a sus familias.A partir de una serie de entrevistas abiertas con migrantes mexicanos, hijos de inmigrantes y deportados, examino no solo la condición subjetiva del estado de deportación de un migrante, sino también intento comprender el persistente miedo que tal condición inflige a cada uno de los miembros de la familia. Por lo tanto, en los casos presentados se intenta documentar las circunstancias que contribuyen a dicho sufrimiento. Por último, aunque todas las historias presentadas en este trabajo reflejan una dosis del dolor y ansiedad de las familias, también retratan, en última instancia, historias de resistencia y resiliencia dentro de la comunidad migrante.
