Abstract

A vulnerable population of transmigrants (migrants who go back and forth across borders) has emerged that can be distinguished from traditional migrants. This “hidden” population is exposed to high antecedents of lack of well-being and marginalization. Social work's emphasis on social justice demands an understanding of this community to better prepare students and practitioners to address the specialized needs of this vulnerable population. This exploratory qualitative study examines the experience of social service providers in providing for the social welfare needs of Mexico–USA transmigrants. Implications for social work practice and research are addressed.
