One in Three Mexicans Would Migrate to U.S.

La Opinin, Posted: Sep 24, 2009

MEXICO CITY -- One in three Mexicans said they would emigrate to the United States if given the opportunity, and more than half of those say they would do so without authorization, reports La Opinin. A study by Pew Global Attitudes Project found that respondents felt that Mexico -- plagued by crime, drug trafficking, the economic crisis and corruption -- is headed in the wrong direction, and that life is better in the United States. However, immigration statistics show a recent decline in the annual flow of Mexican immigrants to the United States, which may be related to the U.S. economic downturn. Four in 10 Mexicans interviewed in the study said they know someone who left for the United States but returned because they could not find a job.
