Abstract

This article is part of a three-year (2006-2009) ethnography that questions the idealized notion of stability and the pathologization of mobility among Central American and Mexican migrant children as they navigate a convoluted network of institutions and actors involved in their care and custody as unaccompanied immigrant children.
