Mexican migration near zero | StarTribune.com

This article supports what I have seen as well. Also, I think the stereotype about Mexicans having alot of kids has outlived its usefulness, as their birthrate is now basically the same as it is for Americans.

This is to be expected. After all, we already have over 10% of Mexicoís citizens living here illegally. As for the birthrate in Mexico, I donít recall anyone disputing the decline. However, I doubt the birthrate among Mexican illegal aliens living in the US is declining. From my observation, it is rare to see a Mexican woman of childbearing age who is not pregnant, or has not recently given birth. Naturally, it is easier to have large families in the U.S. due to our generous welfare system.

It's good that illegal immigration supposedly decreased. Maybe they can try coming legally. We welcome more immigrants from Mexico than all of Africa or Europe.

Yeah but it's probably picking up from Central America.

That's supposed to be the place where you explain the relevance of there being more immigrants from Mexico than from Africa or Europe.

Currently, the majority of both legal and illegal immigration is from Mexico. If we need immigrants, we should have a more equitable percentage from various regions of the world. Do you object to a more diverse group of immigrants?
