Mexico 'opens arms' to immigrants

At least one million of the foreigners coming to the country are from the US.

    Mexico has taken steps to allow the increasing number of foreigners who flood into the country each year, whether legally or illegally, to apply for citizenship.

    Most of Mexico's immigrants come from Central America, but at least one million of them arrive from United States.

    Al Jazeera's Franc Contreras reports from the central Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende, where many of the US immigrants say they appreciate a simpler kind of life.
