The Source begins 2005 with a closer look at remittances to Mexico from the United States. We also explore the likelihood of increased US migration to Canada. Read also about the European Union's latest five-year plan to manage migration and promote integration. This month's Country Profile focuses on Nepal, and our Spotlight examines the history of Hmong resettlement in the United States. This month you'll find:
