RADZIWINOWICZOWNA, Agnieszka. Suffering in Motion: Mobility strategies of Mexicans deported from the United States. Apuntes [online]. 2019, vol.46, n.84, pp.65-93. ISSN 0252-1865.

Since the beginning of this century we have witnessed the development of studies critically analyzing deportation and deportability. However, little is known about the post-deportation trajectories of deportees. This can be better understood employing a comprehensive typology of post-deportation strategies of mobility. This article analyzes the case of Mexicans deported from the United States and draws on ethnography among former deportees in Oaxaca. Post-deportation mobility anticipates or stems from the absences and suffering experienced by the deported people, mobility that is often an example of agency and resistance, especially in the context of unauthorized return to the United States.

Keywords : absence; agency; deportation; immobility; Mexico; mobility; resistance; suffering.
