Interested in Immigrating to the US from Mexico?

Mexicans move to the United States may choose to do so for a variety of reasons, including economic opportunity and the prospect of being closer to family already in the US. Although immigration to the US from Mexico has declined in recent years, the majority of Mexican immigrants still choose to settle in the United States and, as of 2015, make up 26.9 percent of the US immigrant population with 11,643,000 individuals.

Mexico to US

Mexican Community in the US

The largest number of Mexican emigrants haveinsettled in California, Texas, and Illinois, these areas having significant Mexican communities. Because of their proximity, Mexico and the United States have shared a long history of immigration. Thus, Mexican culture and the Spanish language have had a great impact in the US, and can be seen in various communities. These cultural and linguistic influences along with Mexican American communities already in the US provide a community network for incoming immigrants.

Immigration Process

To become a lawful permanent resident of the United States, one must obtain a Green Card . Most immigrants will do so through employment , through family sponsorship , or by being an immediate relative of a US citizen, the latter being most common among Mexican immigrants.
