Oxfam Launches Campaign in Mexico to Slow Migration to U.S.

MEXICO CITY Oxfam has launched a campaign in Mexico aimed at promoting job creation and slowing migration to the United States.

The Me voy o me quedo (Im Going or Im Staying) campaign will promote programs to provide alternatives for earning a living for people at risk of abandoning their communities due to poverty.

The campaign also seeks to help Mexicans living in the United States reconnect with their communities in Mexico.

The more than $22 billion in remittances received in Mexico each year slip away due to lack of programs to channel the money into productive investments for the communities that produce migrants.

The government estimates that an average of 390,000 Mexicans emigrate annually to the United States, while a report from the Washington-based Pew Research Center concluded that nearly 1.4 million people emigrated from Mexico to the United States in the 2005-2010 period. EFE
