According to a new study from the Inter-American Development Bank the biggest reason for migrants coming to the US from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador is economic.
The search for economic opportunities (74%), family reunification (43%) and violence (41%) are the main causes of migration.Â In this sense, the migratory flow related to family reunification will be difficult to stop, which continues to make people trafficking through coyotes profitable and angular, a service for which they can pay between US $ 4,000-US $ 8,000 and at that migrants access through the help of family members (45%), loans (40%) or savings (11%).Â The study concludes that it is necessary to generate quality jobs to achieve greater roots, as well as expand social protection networks in order to improve the quality of life of people in their countries.
This just further proves what we are dealing with regarding migrants coming to the US. We have people who are coming here for more economic opportunity. They are coming for jobs. Don’t Americans have a right to say we can’t let you in because you want a job?
We also have to question what exactly “violence” means. We have places in America that are very violent.
We just wrote an article talking about how Baltimore hit its highest per capita murder rate ever in 2019.
So even of the group claiming violence not all of them would have actual asylum claims.
The study also found that 9% of the original population from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras live in the US.
