More Mexicans are going home than arriving illegally in the USA.
They came chasing dreams and have found the American dream doesn’t exist, it’s a myth, so they’re going home in droves.
Mexico-US migration slips after 40 years of growth
The rate of Mexican immigration to the US has stalled or maybe even gone into reverse, an analysis shows, ending a four-decade-long trend.
A Pew Hispanic Center study shows immigration began to slow five years ago and may have reversed by 2010.
Economic factors, increased border control, and lower Mexican birth rates were all cited as factors.
More than 12 million migrants entered the US from Mexico since 1970, more than half legally, the report says.
“Looking back over the entire span of US history, no country has ever seen as many of its people immigrate to this country as Mexico has in the past four decades,” the report’s authors note.
However, figures clearly show major changes to the long-term trend over the years 2005-2010.
A decade earlier, from 1995-2000, some 2.9 million Mexicans arrived in the US, with just 670,000 people leaving the country for Mexico – a net influx to the US of more than 2.2 million people.
Between 2005-2010, though, just 1.37 million arrived from Mexico – and 1.39 million left to cross the southern border.
“While it is not possible to say so with certainty, the trend lines within this latest five-year period suggest that return flow to Mexico probably exceeded the inflow from Mexico during the past year or two.”

The obvious reason has been omitted from the story (MSM want to paint a rosier picture), many Mexicans have seen the decline in the USA. They can see there is no recovery and there won’t be one. Their foresight is better than Americans myopic view that the US is great. The verb should be ‘was’. All indicators point to the fact that America is sinking in its own mire and it’s only a matter of time before it sinks into oblivion.
