Such external migration is the case of people who are going to work to the United States of America. Most of these people are going to the neighboring country and entering it illegally. These people were and are people in rural areas who go to the United States in search of the American dream. Economic migration has various consequences in Mexico in economic, political and social aspects. The stay of Mexicans in the United States, has important consequences on the economy of the country. Mexicans who migrate to the U.S., normally depart in search of a job than them enough money as to keep and to send money to their families. This is to what is known as remittances: amounts of money than workers Mexicans in us send to their relatives. According to CONAPO figures, it is estimated that in the year 2001, entered Mexico close to 6 billion dollars by concept of remittances, i.e., 17 millions of dollars per day.
Some researchers even mentioned that if these remittances did not exist, the country’s economy collapse. Likewise, he has come to say that if all Mexicans living in the us are returning to their places of origin, Mexico would be one of the most serious economic crises in its history. This would be due to the fact that the economy is not currently able to use the entire population, and if to this we add 8 500 000 of Mexicans residing in the U.S., unemployment rates aumentarias considerably. In addition, the money which is received by concept of remittances would enter the country and this would cause more poverty. In terms of policy, migration policy also has important consequences. Currently, politicians in the States of the South of the United States are trying to pass laws to prevent the constant flow of Mexicans to their country. As it is the case of the Governor of California who has tried on many occasions to accept Bill 187 against immigrants Mexicans.
