MEXICO CITY - Mexican emigration has dropped 42 percent over the last two years, a government study released Thursday showed, confirming that America has become less appealing amid an economic downturn and stepped-up raids against illegal migrants.

About eight of every 1,000 Mexicans emigrated between February and May of this year, according to the survey conducted by the National Statistics and Geography Institute. That's a 42 percent drop from the same period in 2006.

Actually how about 20 MILLION happy returns. A friend of mine was on his way in from the airport and called me this evening to say that he had heard the same thing on the radio and instantly thought of calling me. Gee I wonder why?

Wait a minute, does that mean that the Mexican government will be forced to somehow provide for more its own citizens and el norte will not have much a of bigger role in continuously providing for them?!!!

What a tragedy!
