The new Mexican consul general for the Carolinas said many people don’t understand the contributions that Mexicans make to the economy of North Carolina.
“Many people don’t know that Mexico is the second biggest export market,” said Remedios Gomez Arnau. “Many people don’t know that there are five big Mexican companies in North Carolina creating jobs.
“Many people don’t know that there are 200,000 jobs in North Carolina depending on the trade with Mexico,” Arnau said. “Many people don’t know that the migrant workers of Mexico that are working here, if they were expelled from North Carolina, it would cost a lot of money to the economy of North Carolina and that many jobs would be lost also.”
