The report, prepared by the Continuous Reporting System on International Migration in the Americas of the OAS (Organization of American States), based on official statistics also indicates that the movement of people to the American continent increased five percent per year in the period 2011-2013.
The OAS predicted that, should the favorable economic performance in the region, “the level of immigration flows in these countries will double in about four years.”
“The large increase in intra-regional migration observed in the Americas between 2011 and 2013 is one of the most notable trends documented in this report. Although it still only represents a quarter of all registered emigration in Latin America and the Caribbean, reflects the growing economic integration of the region, “note the authors of the study.
The US remains the country’s most important migrant destination of the Americas: 2013, five out of six American migrants living in that country.
But many other African countries have experienced significant increases in their populations of immigrants, particularly from neighboring countries, the study says.
“On average, 64 percent of immigrants in the Caribbean come from the same region, 63 percent in the case of the Andean Region and 44 percent in the Southern Cone,” the work.
In the case of Central America the average is lower (32 percent) that a high level of immigrants in Mexico come from the United States, particularly children of Mexicans.
