influence the group had on their homelands as a result of its migration

the critical roles played by several U.S.-based Diasporas in helping to attain homeland political goals such as national self-determination and the removal of dictatorial regimes. This article explores the equally important impact Diasporas have had on home country culture and society, in particular the construction and reconstruction of homeland national identity. The relatively recent rapprochement between Mexico and its U.S.-based diaspora after years of estrangement makes Mexico an interesting case study in this regard. Mexico's new posture toward its diaspora and consequently its attempt to reimagine itself as a "global nation"is strongly connected to three things: the evolution of diasporic conditions in the United States, including the Mexican American community's political and economic empowerment, and its dual self-perception as both an integral part of American society and a distinct ethnic diaspora
