Mexican migrants contribute to the U.S. economy

According to Mexican authorities, Mexican migrants contribute to the U.S. economy with 324 billion dollars.

After the debate that arose when the former president used Mexican migrants as an electoral banner against migration, Mexican authorities expressed their discomfort and refuted the Republican leader.

In this regard, the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Alicia Bárcena, affirmed that our nationals contribute 324 billion dollars a year to the Mexican economy.

The report reveals that Mexican migrants contribute this enormous amount to the U.S. economy, which is equivalent to the gross domestic product of several countries.

Before members of the Business Coordinating Council (CCE), the Chancellor explained that Mexicans in the neighboring country contribute more than the GDP of Colombia.

“Why is it that our precious Mexicans contribute 324,000 million dollars a year to the North American economy, the GDP of Colombia is 314,000, that is the reality, look at the fact that out of 10 agricultural workers seven are Mexicans, so welcome Donald Trump to return to the Mexicans to see what they do to see what the companies there do to see what the agricultural companies do to see what the manufacturing companies do, I think it is very important for me to tell you”.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs added that 30 percent of migrants seeking to cross the U.S. border are Mexican, while 70 percent are from other countries.

Finally, he informed that agreements have been made with 50 Mexican companies to employ migrants, especially Haitians, since the master key to get out of poverty, inequality and irregular migration is work with rights and that, he said, is something you can offer.

Another aspect to consider is that, for the first time in twenty years, the United States buys more products from Mexico than from China.

Migratory flows from Mexico have increased the population of age and, above all, with the desire to work in the United States, which has contributed to satisfy the labor demand, especially in occupations not preferred by the natives of that nation.

On the other hand, in the midst of the emerging situation, the Mexican Foreign Minister, on Wednesday, March 20, asked Mexicans living in Texas, United States, to approach consulates and “know their rights” in view of the “contradictory” rulings on the SB4 law of that state, which would allow state authorities to detain and expel undocumented migrants.

“We advise Mexicans in Texas to approach the 11 Mexican consulates and learn about their rights in the face of anti-immigrant, discriminatory or racially motivated acts. They are not alone!” Bárcena wrote in his X account.

Despite criticism and latent fear, Mexican migrants contribute to the U.S. economy 324 billion dollars.


The electoral campaign has been the stage for many supporters of anti-immigration laws to unleash smear campaigns in the United States.

The truth of the matter is that, although it is true that there is a lack of immigration control, the contribution of migrants to the economy is also real.
