42 million adults from Latin America and the Caribbean want permanent residence in the U.S. according to new Gallup polling.
The March 24th poll finds that 35% of the 120 million individuals in the region seeking to leave their country are keen on living in the U.S.:
“There are 33 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Roughly 450 million adults live in the region. Gallup asked them if they would like to move to another country permanently if they could. A whopping 27% said “yes.” This means roughly 120 million would like to migrate somewhere. Gallup then asked them where they would like to move. Of those who want to leave their country permanently, 35% — or 42 million — said they want to go to the United States.”
The number doesn’t appear to include children or family members that could be brought to the U.S. via chain migration. As The National Pulse noted in September 2020, then-candidate Joe Biden’s proposed amnesty of illegal aliens residing in the U.S. would lead to 77,000,000 foreign nationals being added to the U.S. population.
