The 2010 Census count has yet to begin and there are already efforts in place on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border to influence those residing in America illegally to participate in the population count.
Mexican Consulates in Los Angeles and Miami have began pointing out that Mexicans residing stateside will be fundamentally responsible for the more than $300 billion set aside in America annually for social programs in the next 10 years.
The Mexican government explained in a report that the 2010 Census will be crucial to how federal and state funds are allocated as well as how they will be applied toward Mexican nationals.
They specifically note the U.S. government will be spending money in the following areas; transportation, health care, education and other infrastructure and assistance to help vulnerable populations, included those who do not speak the language.
In past census counts about a third of the Mexican population living in the U.S. did not participate in the process because they were afraid of being deported.
The Mexican Consulate believes it is imperative for all in America to fill out the paperwork so they can take advantage of the money being given out in future social entitlement programs.
