Transnational immigration refers to a process by which migrants nurture and maintain multi-stranded and multi-sited social relations that link together their communities of origin and settlement through a process of constant ethnic replenishment and revival. 1 Just as the declining cost of postage hastened the flow of letters back and forth over the Atlantic more than a century and a half ago, cheaper airfares, video-equipped cell phones, and the ubiquity of social media in Latin America have allowed the emergence of alternative forms of cross-border identities and belongings. It is no longer the case that Latin American migrants need to choose between being assimilated and uprooted from their culture or transplanted to global cities where cultural pluralism is socially accepted. 2 Migrants from Latin America today do not have to forge their sense of identity and community out of loss or mere replication due to the new possibilities of connectedness between sending and receiving countries.
