Default Pew: Net Migration from Mexico Falls to Zero—and Perhaps Less

Citing everything from a weakened US job market, to immigration enforcement, to improved economic conditions in Mexico, Pew Research Center reports there are now fewer illegal immigrants entering the US than leaving.

just an article written for political reasons.
They don't want to deal with the border.
Don't want to kick illegals and residents off the dole.
Don't want to make people play by the law.

Let them go back to their own paradise.

Now just how can they possibly know? Its not like illegals check in or out. This is what you call a blivit. 10 pounds of BS in a 5 pound sack. Show me the hard evidence, not guesses, not assumptions and certainly not the political agenda.
Here is the absolute reality folks.
1. They have no idea how many illegals are in this country. None no clue.
2. They have no idea how many self deported.
3. They refuse to allow schools or hospitals to even attempt to track any such data. They being the fed.
So how can they even make a half assed guess as to how many are here or are coming here or leaving here when none of them check in. The only actual numbers they have are those who are caught.

So basically it's not true because you don't want to believe it? I suggest you two actually read the periodical.

No doubt, it cites many resources:

The report draws on numerous data sources from both Mexico and the U.S. The principal Mexican data sources are the Mexican decennial censuses (Censos de Población y Vivienda) of 1990, 2000 and 2010; the Mexican Population Count (Conteos de Población y Vivienda) of 2005; the Survey of Migration in the Northern Border of Mexico (la Encuesta sobre Migracíon en la Frontera Norte de México or EMIF-Norte); the Survey of Demographic Dynamics of 2006 and 2009 (Encuesta Nacional de Dinámica Demográfica or ENADID); and the Survey of Occupation and Employment for 2005-2011 (Encuesta Nacional de Ocupación y Empleo or ENOE). The principal U.S. data sources are the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey (CPS) monthly data for 1994 to 2012; the CPS Annual Social and Economic Supplement conducted in March for 1994 to 2011; the American Community Survey (ACS) for 2005-2010; U.S. Censuses from 1850 to 2000; U.S. Border Patrol data on apprehensions at the U.S.- Mexico border; and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Office of Immigration Statistics on legal admissions to the U.S. and aliens removed or returned. The report also uses data from the World Bank and the United Nations Population Division.

If people are not entering the country illegally, especially when a Democrat is in power, they will have less of a reason to complain about Latinos.

The fertility rate in Mexico has dropped to 1.9. In the future, they'll need their own people, and to prevent a scarcity of labor, Mexico will do everything in their power to prevent them from leaving and going to countries that will eventually need them badly, like China, Japan or Russia and the U.S.

Yes, I can see it now, the Mexico building a wall on the Mexican side to prevent them from escaping!

Juarez was a city with over a million people and over a fourth of them have fled Juarez --- just one city has contributed to more than a quarter million people in just a very short time and they're still pouring over the border faster than the Obama administration apparently can count them.

There have been a number of vehicle crashes with 12, 17 people crammed into SUV's or vans -- and you know that hundreds are coming over without crashing.

I say it's just political posturing also -- why would illegals not be coming to take up Obama's big offer of amnesty and of course the dream act he's also promising them?

When Popo's lava starts flowing, you can expect pretty much all the people from that region over here in just hours.

WE'd probably help build that wall. LOL The US is still a pretty decent place and I'm quite sure we'll get more legal aliens from other places.
