42 Million People From Latin America Want To Migrate To USA

42 Million People From Latin America Want To Migrate To USA

Approximately 42 million people want to migrate to the United States, according to Gallup Chairman Jim Clifton, who conducted a poll spanning 33 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Roughly 450 million adults live in the region.

When asked if they would like to move to another country, 27% said yes. Then, when asked where they would like to move – leaving their country permanently, 35%, or 42 million, said they want to go to the United States.

Seekers of citizenship or asylum are watching to determine exactly when and how is the best time to make their move.

In addition to finding a solution for the thousands of migrants currently at the border, let’s include the bigger, harder question — what about all of those who would like to come? What is the message to them? -Gallup

Meanwhile, in a Tuesday Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal, columnist Jason Riley questions exactly what the Biden administration’s immigration priorities are – asking “Are they to erase the southern border for all intents and purposes, while legalizing everyone currently in the country without authorization?”

This is no way to run a sovereign nation. Even Democratic administrations used to understand that without a border there is no country. And without security, there is no border. “We must say ‘no’ to illegal immigration so we can continue to say ‘yes’ to legal immigration,” said President Clinton, who responded to a spike in illegal immigration in the early 1990s by asking Congress for additional funding, among other things to “protect our borders, remove criminal aliens, reduce work incentives for illegal immigration [and] stop asylum abuse.”

These problems, you might have noticed, are still with us, and in some cases have worsened, yet the Democratic Party’s resolve seems long gone. Replacing it is a growing belief on the political left that people should be allowed to enter the U.S. on their terms rather than ours, and that it is our collective responsibility to take care of them if they can’t take care of themselves. Milton Friedman said that open immigration and large welfare states are incompatible, and today’s progressives in Congress and the White House are eager to test that proposition. WSJ

And so, with 42 million or so Latin Americans who want to come to America combined with Biden’s open-border free-for-all, the landscape in the United States may be about to rapidly change. For low-income immigrants who came to the country legally, prepare to face intense competition for already scarce jobs.
