MEXICO CITY (AP) The United States is home to nearly 12 million Mexicans of which over six million are illegal immigrants who are in job uncertainty and no security patriomonial, said the Center for Social Studies and Public Opinion in the House of Representatives .
The document ‘Agenda-Mexico Binational Topic Migration: Legislation and Public Policy’, revealed that one of the outstanding issues on the agenda of the country’s northern neighbor immigration reform that would legalize the status of 6.1 million Mexicans undocumented.
The Center for Social Studies and Public Opinion (CESOP) of the House stated that migration remains a vital issue for our country.
He mentioned that in the absence of a federal immigration law in the United States some states have begun to enact various anti-immigrant laws, hence it is recommended that Mexico adopt a proactive stance.
Also be prepared to face the consequences and take advantage of opportunities arising from a likely U.S. immigration reform, he said.
According to the Pew Hispanic Center, the Government of Mexico should promote training of migrants, ensure the protection of labor rights of workers and nationals redirect migration flows occupations and regional markets that offer better working conditions, said the study.
The CESOP abounded that almost ten percent of all Mexicans living abroad and most emigrated to the United States.
A report by the United Nations Agency for Refugees, reported the internal displacement of 1.6 million people since 2007, due to the violence unleashed by drug cartels.
As a result of the violence in the country, he said, various media have also documented the output of Mexican businessmen to the U.S., he said.
This migration, stressed, has been called ‘deluxe or gold’, and that the exodus of students in Mexico, particularly in the north of the country, has benefited economically to the United States.
The CESOP noted that according to the National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (CANACINTRA), 526 companies closed in 2011 as a result of the lack of necessary reforms, insecurity, decreased exports and U.S. slowdown and the crisis in Europe.
