Beyond 'Coyotes': Current Trends in the Facilitation of Irregular Migration in Latin America

This event will shed light on how, across Latin America, the increasingly punitive nature of immigration enforcement, shifting migration trends, and the presence of other actors — including those from other illicit markets — have altered the landscape of traditional irregular migration facilitation strategies, often to the detriment of migrants’ safety.

The Wilson Center is hosting a discussion about current trends in smuggling and its organization, the shifting roles of migrants in the market, and the additional criminal risks many of them face as a result. Speakers will present findings from their research in South and Central America, Mexico, and the U.S.-Mexico border.
