People in Mexico think that granting legal status to illegal immigrants would encourage more Mexican citizens to enter the United States illegally, according to a survey by Zogby International.
Mexicans’ interest in going to the United States remains strong, even in the current recession, Zogby found. Three in 10 Mexican adults said they would move to the U.S. if they could.
The poll of 1,000 adults living in Mexico found the bad economy and increased immigration enforcement were cited as reasons that fewer people are going to the U.S. and more are returning to Mexico.
A recent Rasmussen Reports poll reveals that 56% of Americans believe that policy makers in Washington are responsible for the illegal immigration problem.
