The Effects of Emigration on Mexico By Kate Harris 12/13/2011 Immigration vs. Emigration You immigrate to a country. You emigrate from a country. Remittances

Remittances are contributions sent home by immigrants living abroad. Remittances are reported to be both the third largest source of income for Mexico (after petroleum and tourism) and the tenth. They account for between $618 billion a year. Why do you think the statistics vary so much?? In many Mexican states, there is a program called Dos por Uno. The state contributes two pesos for each peso contributed by migrants living abroad via remittances for projects like roads, bridges, and public works.

Economic Impact In regions like Chiapas, there is no real industry. Most men aspire to go the United States and earn money to return and improve their communities. Cultural Impact

Many migrants from Mexico travel back and forth between the U.S. and Mexico, and bring with them traditions from both countries. The house at right is made out of cement, but designed to look like the wood-siding houses of the Northeastern United States.

Cultural Impact, cont. Much of Mexico today is very rural. Citizens spoke of how the desires of people changed after they spent time in the United States. They became more concerned with newer fashions, gadgets, and music. In many Mexican towns, you

can find NY style pizza, just like in many American cities, you can find Mexican taquerias. Impact on Families The National Population Council of Mexico estimates that one in 10 Mexican families is dependent upon remittances as their main source of income.

These children lived in a town where there were almost no men left of working age. The children were raising chickens to supplement the income provided by remittances and their mothers work. What kind of emotional impact do you think it might have for fathers to emigrate? Raising future migrants?

Some Mexican families have taken to naming their children with American names, to make the transition to the United States easier in later years. English is the most commonly taught second language. Is this similar or different from the goals of parents living in the United States? What do you think?
