More Mexicans Coming to U.S.

La Opinion, Posted: Aug 25, 2008

MEXICO CITYThe Mexican government has acknowledged that more Mexicans are coming to the United States to seek employment, according to La Opinion. Ana Teresa Aranda from the National Council on Population, said that the current annual emigration is 580,000, a 12 percent increase from last year. She said that about 93 percent of Mexicans in the United States came after the 1970s, and so far only 21.5 percent have citizenship, which she attributes to the failure of passing comprehensive immigration reform and U.S. foreign policy. Arnada urged the U.S. government to implement immigration reform that recognizes the role of Mexican workers "in building prosperity for the United States" and acknowledges "a profound interdependence between both nations."
