DELGADO WISE, Raúl  e  GASPAR OLVERA, Selene. The global compact: a view of Mexican migrants within the us economy. Migr. desarro [online]. 2017, vol.15, n.29, pp.7-30. ISSN 1870-7599.

Within the UN, in September 2016, a process of intergovernmental consultation and negotiation was initiated that will culminate in the adoption of a Global compact on migration in 2018. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to demystify the dominant perceptions of the migratory phenomenon, shaping public opinion and influencing intergovernmental negotiations in the face of the Global compact. Faced with this challenge and given the importance and strategic role of Mexican migration for the United States economy, a series of indicators and empirical evidence are provided that demonstrate that, regardless of their migratory status, Mexican migrants ⸻including their descendants⸻ far from constituting a burden on the host economy, contribute, among other things, to meeting growing labor market needs, boosting economic growth, and strengthening social security of the first capitalist power and principal receiving country of migrants in the world.

Palavras-chave : Global compact; Mexico-us migration; forced migration; economic contribution of immigrants; perception of migrants.
