Historic wave of Mexican immigration at a standstill, report says

The number of Mexican migrants to the United States dropped significantly while the number of those returning home increased, bringing net migration from Mexico to a statistical standstill, according to a report published Monday.

The shift over the last several years marks a significant change after four decades of historic immigration from Mexico, according to the report by the Pew Hispanic Center.

“The largest wave of immigration in history from a single country to the United States has come to a standstill,” the report says.

The downward trend in migration started about five years ago, according to the report.

During that time the number of illegal immigrants from Mexico residing in the U.S. fell sharply from 7 million to about 6.1 million. At the same time, the number of legal Mexican immigrants residing in the U.S. increased slightly from 5.6 million to 5.8 million. Those estimates are based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

The report attributes the changes to several factors, including the weakened economy, increased border enforcement, a rise in deportations, growing dangers at the border and a long-term decline in Mexican birth rates.



Well, so much for that election issue.


It's amazing how some unexpected things signal real trouble in this country.

Of all of the reasons provided, I think the weakened economy is the most responsible.


Good job, Washington.

They must know that the ship is sinking. Mexicans usually would die to cross the boarder to come live in the United States, but now they are heading home. That makes me feel ever so comfortable.

So according to the US Census there are 6.1 million Illegal Mexican immigrants and 5.8 million Legal Mexican immigrants? That doesn't seem accurate in the least.

Well then..... I think I might go with 'em.

If they'd rather deal with earthquakes and volcanoes than our bull#... then our bull# must be WAYYYY worse than we think... Wow....

I can just picture a Mexican crossing back into Mexico, telling other people to just turn around and go back to Mexico.... hmmm

This was predicted years ago when the recession first started. Because the jobs they fill are the first jobs to go. No work, they leave.

So much for loyalty.....

"...a long-term decline in Mexican birth rates."

What did we start sending them back freshly vaccinated?
Or would this be from tending our GMO crap-crops?

Actually, yes. At least here in San Diego, an illegal is offered all healthcare which includes full vaccinations. Most of the county services are not allowed to be denied based on immigration status.

Isnt there a pretty nasty war going on down in Mexico right now to? It's definantly not good when people who risked their lives to get here, are returning back, this time to a bloody war zone.
