The most common motivation for Mexicans to move to the US is economic, followed by a desire to reunite with spouses, parents or other immediate family, particularly among women and children. However, for some an additional important reason to leave Mexico is the need to find a new social space where they can redefine their sexual and gender identities. This phenomenon--labeled "sexual migration"--is known to happen among Mexican women and among men who are sexually attracted to other men (MSM). Sexual migration is of particular interest in terms of HIV risk. Contrary to what is often assumed, the population of Mexicans who move to the US is considerably diverse. Mexicans are from cities and rural areas, poor and middle-class, undocumented and legal immigrants, monolingual and bilingual. Some emigrate permanently or come for a short period and then return to Mexico.
The largest immigrant group in the US are Mexicans, of which about 800,000 Mexicans migrate to the US every year.
In much of the Southwest, they were here long before the US existed.
mostly from the 1830's to the present day.
Many Mexicans try to migrate to the US for better pay, better working conditions, and a better quality of life in general. There's a certain something to the air that freedom from oppression brings.

Of the many Mexicans that migrate to the US, most settle in California. This is because the reason why most of these immigrates are migrating is for a better life, and California has a very high standard of living and average income, which is ideal for immigrants.
Because the Mexicans are faking to be nice so the US thinks they are friends.

Very few people from Spain migrate to the US.
Mexicans get paid 20,000$ a year working on a farm
Rapid industrialization coupled with lower prices for agricultural products.
i believe that Mexicans owned part of the us, and probably had villages in the us before any of us ever set foot here
