The border wall divides Latin Americans

Latinos of Mexican and Central American origin oppose the eventual construction of a border wall between the United States and Mexico; The opposite occurs with Cubans and Puerto Ricans living in the United States.

This is reflected in a survey carried out between Axios and Noticias Telemundo. Cubans have settled very well in Florida since the times of the Cold War, otherwise the Mexicans, targets of mass deportations.

The survey indicates that 54% of people of Cuban origin would be in favor of the construction of a wall; the figure drops to 25% when Mexicans living in the United States are questioned.

73% of Latinos of Mexican origin oppose the construction of a border wall. It is important to note that people of Mexican descent represent the majority of the Latino population in the United States, 62 percent.

Among the biggest concerns Latinos living in the United States have are the effects of Covid-19 and gun violence.

Immigration lagged behind climate change, supply chain problems, and inflation.

This last point is interesting because migration is a politically widely used issue.

For now, the issue of the wall has been buried by the current Biden administration.
