A new survey reports that roughly one million Guatemalans-10 percent of that country’s entire population-say they are “very likely” to migrate to the United States in the next three years. Guatemala’s Association for Research and Social Studies’ survey clearly predicts more mass illegal immigration despite the same poll showing a 10 percent drop in concern about crime. Nonetheless, the “humanitarian” asylum loophole remains wide open for these economic migrants to force their way into America. If you thought the crisis at the border was an emergency, just wait until a million more folks show up.

Roughly one million Guatemalans say they are “very likely” to migrate to the United States in the next three years, according to a survey posted by Guatemala’s Association for Research and Social Studies.
Ten percent of Guatemalans told the survey team they strongly wish to migrate in the next three years. The nation’s fast-growing population is just above 17 million, but one-third are aged below 15. This data suggests that roughly 1.2 million Guatemalans wish to migrate during the next three years, and of those, 1 million prefer to migrate to blue-collar jobs in the United States.
Guatemala is Mexico’s southern neighbor. The survey was conducted with the Latin American Public Opinion Project at Vanderbilt University.
