In the United States lives 9% of the original population of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, which represents about three million people, according to the Inter-American Development Bank, which presented an x-ray of the profile of people who leave their home countries in search of the ‘American Dream’, within the framework of Migrant Day.
50% of them send money back to there home countries:
The study reflects that migrants maintain a high connection with the countries of origin. More than 50% send remittances, which has become a determining variable in the economic activity of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, where they now represent an average of 18% of GDP. To this is added that about 20% of migrants are investing in productive activities in their countries of origin, as well as in the purchase and / or construction of housing.
Can you blame them? If you were a migrant traveling to the US with a poor family back home wouldn’t you do the same? The bottom line is that our government needs to fix our immigration issues as a way to stop this from happening. Remittances are simply a transfer of money from the US economy to a separate country.
Is this America First?
