New Perspectives on Immigration in the US

Statue of Liberty

September 4, 2014 - 2:49 pm

Last year, the United States deported nearly 370,000 people. That’s nine times the number 20 years ago.  Meanwhile, a recent study on trends in Mexico released by the Pew Research Center finds that 34% of its pool said they would like to migrate to the US.  Over 70% said top concerns were with crime, corruption and drug cartel related violence.  This week we look at the real life conditions that draw people from Mexico and other countries to the United States.
