Abstract: This study evaluates three important questions. First, to what extent do Mexicans engage in dehumanization of Central American immigrants? Second, it measures the degree to which Mexican beliefs about American dehumanization of Mexican immigrants influences their judgement about ingroup immigrants. Third, it assess whether negative appraisals by Mexicans of derogated outgroups (Central American migrants) can be mitigated by the presentation of humanizing information, namely, information connecting the plight of outgroup migrants (Central American) with ingroup migrants (Mexican). To do this, we will administer a series of survey experiments, targeting around 4,000 subjects across Mexico.
