This text provides a current, theoretically and ethnographically supported view of Central American migration to the United States. Underlines the way in which structural changes have had direct effects on the migrant population that has been "trapped in mobility" in various areas of Mexico; shows the changes in migratory orientation and the first effects. from the same. The "gray areas" in which migrants with unauthorized entry move and the type of marginality, helplessness and precariousness in which they live are addressed ethnographically. The field information provides evidence of the modification in the social composition of the flows and the strategies that individuals articulate to survive, despite the violence and the multiple social and personal maladjustments they face. The text outlines new routes of analysis on this reality that nuance the recurring conceptualization of Mexico as a "transit" space and the causes of departure of the Central American migrant population. It ends with a prospective approach, which records and analyzes the initial effects of the Covid-19 pandemic in terms of economic globalization and the US labor market, as well as the implications it will possibly have for migratory flows originating in the Central American region.
