Abstract

This interpretive ethnography draws on interviews with migrants, smugglers, and border-enforcement personnel to provide a condensed overview of the multiple factors conducive to undocumented maritime migration from the Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico. The article explores the dynamic interactions of these economic, social, cultural, historical, political, military, religious, family, and personal factors as components of a causal composite. It also provides significant new ethnographic information that updates and expands current knowledge on Dominican migration.
