Mexicans in the United States are a diverse population. But this diversity often gets lost in scholarly work and in the popular press. This lecture will explore the sources of the diversity in the Mexican migrant stream, which, for more than a century now, has remained stable in its presence but changed remarkably not only in its composition and origins in Mexico, but also in its destinations and settlement patterns in the United States.
