    S.D. County Remittances to Mexico hit $1.1 Billion

    S.D. County remittances to Mexico hit $1.1 billion

    WASHINGTON – The amount of money that workers in San Diego County send to Mexico has ballooned – reaching $1.1 billion last year from $800 million in 2004, according to a new estimate by the World Bank.

    Elliott Giles wired money yesterday to Mexico from Murphy's Market in City Heights. Migrants sent $24.2 billion to Mexico last year.
    In most cases, the money was sent to help relatives.
    Experts expressed surprise at the magnitude of the money transfers, but they said the amount still represents a fraction of both economies. San Diego's economy is estimated at $120 billion and Mexico's at $840 billion.

    The bulk of the $24.2 billion in remittances sent to Mexico last year came from the United States. Roughly $13 billion came from California.

    Migrants worldwide sent more than $300 billion to their home countries last year, according to a study released this week by the International Fund for Agricultural Development and the Inter-American Development Bank. That sum surpassed foreign development aid and foreign direct investment and carries major development potential for poor nations if properly channeled.

    India took in more remittance money last year than any other nation, $24.5 billion, with Mexico a close second.

    In the estimate of formal and informal money transfers worldwide, researchers found that 150 million migrants dispatching a few hundred dollars each sustained millions of families in 162 developing nations. But little of the bounty has fueled economic growth in those nations, because most of it is used for small-scale consumer purchases, the study found.

    Jaouad Khadim, manager of Murphy's Market in City Heights, helped Carmen Pavon send money yesterday to family in Veracruz state.
    More money goes from San Diego to Baja California than to any other Mexican state. Because of the size and diversity of its economy, Baja California is less dependent on remittances than less-developed Mexican states, said Jeffrey Davidow, president of the Institute of the Americas in San Diego and former U.S. ambassador to Mexico.
    “They're much less important to the economy of Baja than they are to the economy in states like Michoacan or Zacatecas,

    We pay for their welfare benefits, hospital bills, their children going to school. We pay for higher insurance rates, deadly diseases.
    They take our jobs, rob us blind, commit crimes, act like they are superior to us.
    They don't pay taxes and exploit welfare.
    They breed like rabbits in hopes to stay here.

    The money that they make the send to Mexico? It is true that we are the largest contributor that Mexico has besides taking care of 40 million illegals.

    We need to stop Bush before it is too late. The plan is to let us soak up this population. We have a problem of two Presidencies. The Clinton and Bush Presidencies. Both of Globalization and SPP on there minds. There is no difference in the way Hillary would run this country and what Bush is doing now.

    It is just my opinion, but I wonder how much kickback Spitzer is getting from financial institutions for passing driver's licenses for illegals. If illegals had drivers licenses it would be much easier to start bank accounts to do wire transfers back home. "So much to wonder so many truths untold"

    The big winner in Spitzer's diabolical plan is the insurance industry. I dont' know how many illegal immigrants are estimated to be in New York. But I expect the number of insurance policies generated by the new drivers licenses would be staggering.
