El objetivo del presente artículo de investigación es destacar mediante una metodología cualitativa el ejemplo significativo de la relación entre migración y desarrollo económico representado por la migración mexicana. Desde el Programa Bracero, la migración mexicana a Estados Unidos ha aumentado de manera significativa, confluyendo en el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLC) y en el tratado NAFTA, pero, propiamente el análisis de los mismos demuestra el fracaso de las políticas laborales migratorias, ya que la migración puede ser un factor pujante en el desarrollo económico y no un elemento de disuasión. Por lo tanto, en las políticas de desarrollo se necesita un enfoque integral que considere la migración como un factor de crecimiento.

The objective of this research article is to highlight through a qualitative methodology the significant example of the relationship between migration and economic development represented by Mexican migration. Since the Bracero Program, Mexican migration to the United States has increased significantly, converging in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the NAFTA treaty, but, in fact, the analysis of these shows the failure of the migratory labor policies, since migration can be a thriving factor in economic development and not a deterrent. Therefore, development policies need a comprehensive approach that considers migration as a growth factor.
