The U.S remains an attractive destination for Latin American job seekers, according to a region-wide poll by Gallup. Gallup Chairman and CEO Jim Clifton wrote in his blog that 42 million Latin Americans want to move permanently to the U.S, 5 million of them within the next year.
He said: “Most U.S. citizens like me just want to know the plan. What is the 10-year plan? How many, exactly whom and what skills will they bring? What do we want? Answer these questions, and the current discussion can be resolved.” Clifton added that it is not just the American people who want answers, but also the Latin American job seekers.
