I've provided the data on the two different types of asylum before. For both "Defensive" (which is to avoid removal back to their home country) and "Affirmative" (which is a request for asylum as they enter the United States) categories, below 300 Mexicans per year are granted asylum. That certainly isn't "very many".

And I provided this source -- but you can also see it with your own eyes if you live on the border -- the number that are coming over the border to live on this side is huge. I highly doubt that it's only 300 -- unless it's 300 extended families like the large Reyes Salazar cartel family.

And you can always look at Mexico news sources -- the number of abandoned houses especially in cities like Juarez will give you a good picture of how many have fled to the USA. It's estimated that 1/4 of homes in Mexico sit empty.

However -- I think the real question the OP brings up --- why will many many millions of lawbreakers be rewarded with an amnesty and easy citizenship -- while this one family they will deport?

I didn't say 300, I said below 300. And only the last few years has it gone that high (in 2011 it was 104 individuals for "Defensive" approvals, and 190 "Affirmative" Mexican Nationals allowed in. In the last decade it has been as low as 35 "Defensive" approvals, and no "Affirmative" requests.

Believe what you want, but subjective assumptions aren't accurate...
