U.S. Companies in Mexico Object to Boycott

By  | 

The call is moving quickly through Mexican cyberspace -- Boycott US companies and restaurant chains in Mexico to pressure Congress to legalize undocumented migrants in "El Norte."

But American executives say the attack is misguided. They say US businesses are doing more than anyone to provide jobs as the largest private-sector employer in Mexico.

The American Chamber of Commerce in Mexico says one in four Mexican private-sector jobs with regular pay are provided by US

And business leaders say the US business community is one of the strongest supporters of legalization of undocumented migrants in the United States or guest-worker programs.

The Mexican boycott urges people to shun all products from US businesses on May First.
