    Net migration from Mexico dips to zero
    By Liz Goodwin | The Lookout – 5 hrs ago

    Net migration from Mexico. (Pew Hispanic Center)
    Mexican migration into the United States has come to a standstill and may soon reverse, according to a report by the Pew Hispanic Center. This marks a dramatic change in the wave of Mexican migration that brought 12 million people to America over four decades.
    About 1.4 million Mexicans immigrated to the United States between 2005 and 2010, which is roughly the same number of Mexicans who left over the same period.
    The number of illegal immigrants from Mexico dropped from 7 million in 2007, a peak, to 6.1 million in 2011. The report attributes the drop to the drastic decline in birthrates in Mexico, the increasingly dangerous passage across the border, and the flagging American economy. A higher percentage of deported migrants now say in surveys that they will not attempt to come back into the United States (compared to 10 years ago).
    The United States' estimated 12 million Mexican immigrants represent the largest chunk of immigrants in any country in the world. Mexico has sent more immigrants to the States over the past four decades than any other nation.
    According to the Mexican census, 500,000 U.S. citizen children were living in Mexico in 2010, compared to 240,000 10 years earlier. Government data doesn't say how many of those children left the United States because their parents were deported.

    DKR Interesting ideas, interesting stories

    Sorry - no sale

    These folks expect me to believe that the 'problem' of illegals immigrants has just gone away?

    No sale.

    How convenient, just before a National election with a lame pres with a dead economy - and magically the problem just goes away.

    Not hardly.

    The thing is, it's just a NET increase of 0, they are still coming over...just at the same rate that the old ones are leaving or being sent packing. And like it was stated earlier, partially because our economy sucks out loud.

    We're just not sinking as fast, that's all but we're still sinking and you can bet your butt that the nanosecond the economy turns around the graph will look like the one on the left again.

    The article said 12 million which is pure baloney.

    However, 0bama cures illegal immigration by killing the economy.

    Yeah, it's blue skies and bs from the bought and paid for media to help crown his majesty for another term.

    I'm more worried about PDD 51 being invoked sometime after about May 7th or so and having no elections and it was all done "legally"...NOT!

    I'll go back to my corner now.

    Rumor Has It....

    Word from the rumor mill is that most Hispanics, legal and otherwise, that have been successful enough to have developed an income stream of dollars are actually afraid, or extremely reluctant, to go back to Mexico for a family visit or to settle down back on their home turf.

    Mexican cartel drug gangs watch who comes and goes through most small villages such that all movements are reported. Also, they conduct armed road blocks within territory they control (paid off the Federales) to shake down people visiting from the USA for a road passage "toll".

    From what I hear many Mexicans would leave their country in a heartbeat if they could find work here. Our economy is flatlined; and that is what is keeping a lot of them from crossing the Rio Grande.

    The "Dodge City" violence in Mexico is keeping the millions we already have digging their heels in even more---unfortunately.
  13. I think they saw the Obama flags and know what's coming, so, like rats, they are abandoning ship. There are a small group of leaders that added their face to the national flag, and none of their stories ended well. Stocking up on ammo and immaculate flags as we speak

    Something isn't right with the data. How do they count illegals who come in and gain some sort of residency? What if they manage to become citizens?
    Also, i find it hard to believe that the rate crossing back to Mexico has DOUBLED.
