U.S. migration from Latin America has shifted over the past two
decades. From 1965 to 2015, more than 16 million Mexicans
migrated to the U.S. in one of the largest mass migrations of the
modern history. But over the past decade, Mexican migration to
the U.S. has slowed dramatically. Today, Mexico increasingly
serves as a land bridge for central American immigrants traveling
to the U.S.
More Mexicans now say life is about the same in the U.S. and
Mexico. In 2015, 33% of Mexican adults said life in the U.S. is
neither better nor worse than life in Mexico, up from 23% who
said this in 2007. Still, about half of Mexican adults believe, life is
better in the U.S. and 35% of Mexicans said they would move to
the U.S. if they had the opportunity and means to do so, similar
shares as in 2009.
This article provides a whole lot of information that helps me and
my work to give more details about what immigration is and how
it is represented by Mexico and the United States. It gives facts
and numbers represented as logos that help my work be more
accurate.

After four decades of rapid growth, the size of the Mexican
immigrant population in the united states has remained stable in
recent years. In 2014, more than 11.7 million Mexican immigrants
resided in the united states, accounting for 28 percent of the 42.4

million foreign-born population-by far the largest immigrant origin


group in the country.
This web page is a great source because it talks and give
numbers about the growth of immigrants living in the united
states , which helps my work be more detailed about the Mexican

For almost a half-century after the annexation of Texas in 1845,
the flow was barely a trickle. In fact, there was a significant
migration in the other direction: Mexican citizens who left the
newly annexed U.S territories and resettled in Mexican territory.
Beginning around 1890s, new industries in the U.S. southwestespecially, mining and agriculture-attracted Mexican migrant
laborers.
History and evidence like this is very important and helpful for my
work. Also, at the beginning of the page it says that the post is in
collaboration with The John W. Kluge Center at The Library of
Congress, which brings together scholars and researchers from
around the world to use the librarys rich collections. So this
meaning that the information in this web page is 100% reliable.

Mexican emigration to the United States remains a contentious
topic, a source of friction, and a lasting negative influence on
Mexicos economic development. The main reason why Mexicans
emigrate to the United States is to improve their economic
situation. Other motives exist, such as kinship relations in the
destination city but if the disparities in income opportunities were

lower between the two countries, this would override kinship


relations.
This part of the article mainly explains one of the main causes
why Mexicans migrate to the United States. Known as The
American dream, Mexican go on a travel to find a better living
standard.
