The net outflow of Mexican immigrants follows a decade of "net zero" migration from Mexico, and also includes a significant reduction in unauthorized migration from Mexico. These trends show how dangerously outdated our political conversations about immigration have become. Just three years ago, several Republican governors and presidential candidates were calling for the "self-deportation" of undocumented immigrants. This year, some are calling for mass roundups, forced deportations and a gigantic, no-doubt-costly wall along the southern border. Setting aside humanitarian concerns, such measures amount to fighting old battles.

Mexican migrants are heading back home — and that's bad news for the U.S. economy - LA Times

The illegal aliens; Mexican or not, STILL need to leave the US. Period.

Legal aliens are Ok.

Bad news for the economy: says the same kind of greedy people who thought slavery was good for the US. NOT!

Yet another article written by a fish wrap that calls itself a newspaper and is pro-illegal immigration.

From the article:

While some may cheer the net outflow of Mexican migrants, they should be careful what they wish for. We have long known that a growing U.S. economy depends critically on immigrant workers in various sectors. Mexican immigrants contribute heavily to our state and local economies, especially in construction, agriculture and various service sector jobs. With the wave of baby boom retirements growing each year, demand for immigrant workers will only increase.
---------------------------------------

Never mind that illegals have forced American citizens out of the construction industries due to undercutting them when it comes to pay.

Funny how those "service sector" jobs have plenty of Americans and legal immigrants working them.

There are a lot of hidden costs from illegal aliens as well that most don't even consider. One is insurance. Everyone in a area with a large amount of illegal aliens have higher insurance rates. The reason is that most illegals don't carry auto insurance. When they get involved in an accident, it either falls on the other party involved to pay out of pocket, or their insurance pays. If the insurance pays, they factor each accident into the process and each of us that pay for our insurance have to pay an increase. Illegals have a LOT of accidents.

It took me awhile to figure it out but when we moved here, in the police reports, there were always 2 or 3 hit-and-runs a week. There was a young illegal that ran a stop sign and decided rather than be stopped by the police it would be better to out run them. Sadly, he died trying to avoid a traffic stop. Luckily, he took no one else with him.

We also have a LOT of dog bites. Of course the hospital has to write-off (charge everyone else more) all of the emergency care which illegals use at 3 times the rate of legal citizens. Then, you have the theft. The grocery store in "that part of town" ended up closing and sadly, it put everyone else on that side of town without a grocery store.

We can replace all of the illegals when it comes to jobs. We graduate about 200 from the high school and there are usually about 20 jobs tops for them to go for. Also, we have a college and you see very few part-time jobs available for them and many of them would also work full-time while attending school if the jobs were available. Funding to the colleges has been cut and costs there are up so many of the students need the jobs. In a low income area, we have a lot of high school kids that work to help out the family. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to get a job and not have to speak Spanish?

The last town we were in, they were letting go older workers, women that became pregnant, workers that had been there and were at the top end of the wages, etc. and replacing them with illegals that car-pooled in from a nearby city. Yes, the employer can't discriminate like that but they do and you can't do anything about it and we tried. Another way they run up auto insurance is that they often overload the vehicles and end up in an accident. I mean they stack the cars like a sardine can. Cars have a certain amount of weight that they can safely carry.

I don't care what race, culture, religion or ethnicity is coming through that southern border, it needs to stop. And, we have plenty of unemployed to take those jobs.

I am so sick of the lies about illegal aliens. I posted a link under another topic denoting that Mexican illegal immigration is on the rise now. Who did these jobs before their arrival by the millions to undercut Americans in construction, landscaping, restaurant work and many other blue-collared jobs that used to pay a living wage? As for agriculture only 2-3% of illegals are doing those jobs. We don't need illegal workers for anything and they aren't a boon to our economy but a bust. If we need more immigrants as the baby boomers age then we can increase our quotas and visas for legal, foreigner workers. Illegal immigration is not acceptable.

When the "Day without immigrants" protest was held, our local metropolitan planning agency, SANDAG authorized a $3 million study on how transportation needs changed. The day of the protest, freeways were wide open, and traffic counts dropped to 1980 levels. The air pollution index also experience major decline. One conclusion from the study was that if everyday was a "day without immigrants", $9 BILLION in transportation projects could be cancelled over the next 30 years.

In San Diego that day, the quality of life was so significantly improved that the protest organizers vowed to never do it again.

What we see daily is simply this: You CANNOT be in favor of a better enviroment AND in favor of open borders.

Demographics of those illegally in the country: Donald Trump's November Polls -- An Analysis | National Review Online

And, who will take the jobs the illegals leave, the people they took the jobs from in the first place, people legally in the country. The single mothers with 4 anchor babies aren't putting anything into the economy so that will be a HUGE bonus.

Enforcing immigration law just sounds too good to be true. Isn't that sad? I mean should we have laws that aren't enforced? Everyone gets down on the law but this is the perfect example as to why we have laws in the first place.

I'm sure they will be given precedence. Language barrier will be an issue though.
