Summary: Introduces the recent context (2000-2011) of Central American migration transiting Mexico: flows and border securitization, legal control; detention of inmigrants, and the situation of abuse, violence and identity.The article problematizes, form a ethnographical and politological approach, this contextin the framework of research questions that aim to promote a broader research process. It proposes some analytical considerations that could be useful to reflect on the problem: a critical notion of border that exceeds the basic definition of a line between two nation-states, a reflection on the notion of migration seen from the concepts and War Machine and State Apparatus, from Deleuze and Guattari, continuing the critic to the traditional notion of border, and trying to propose some perspectives and challenges in a research on this topic.
