The Pew Hispanic Center has been generating some interesting work lately, and this latest survey administered to nearly 5,000 Mexican migrants is worth a closer look. The 35-page report authored by Roberto Suro shows that almost half of the respondents would like to stay in the United States for the rest of their lives, or at least for as long as they are able. Interestingly enough, the survey also found that by a four-to-one margin, respondents would like to sign up for a temporary worker program similar to the one proposed by President George W. Bush. The demographics of the sample size are somewhat noteworthy as well, as nearly half of the sample was of people between 18 and 29 years old, and almost half had been in the country for five years or less.
