Who said they won't leave? If there are no jobs, and our laws are enforced, they will have no recourse.

Quote:
Bermudez, of the group Immigrants without Borders, said the bad U.S. economy is forcing immigrants to make hard choices, and many will return to their native land for the first time in years, or perhaps ever.

"What they're telling me is, 'If I'm going to die of hunger here, I'd rather die of hunger there,'" Bermudez said. "They're going back not to enjoy their families, they're going back to cry with their families."

"In this kind of situation right now, those who are leaving, 80 to 90 percent of those are not coming back," he said. "You will get the 10 percent of those who are legal, who have legal permanent residency, who actually visit their families and come back."

He added, "The main reason people are leaving is because they don't have jobs. Or the employer sanctions situation in Arizona. It is not solving our economic problems, it really aggravates our economic problems."

Many immigrants risked their lives to reach the United States, and many will risk their lives by returning to Mexico, Bermudez said, noting the spreading violence in Mexico.
"Federal representatives, congressmen from Mexico City, are at every port of entry, receiving these people and making sure that they have safe passage into Mexico," he said. "It's really an amazing kind of situation."
Who knew the department of sanitation and the welcome wagon were one and the same in mexico. Can you imagine the size of their garbage trucks?

Good riddance to the criminals!

Arizona could easily see 200,000 immigrants leave permanently, on top of the 100,000 people who already have left the country, said Bermudez.
A net 'loss' of 300,000 does not hurt my feelings!

It just proves they are in fact leaving. Soon, this will be the norm throughout this country.

i dont think so. the longer you stay here the better the chance of not going back.
mexico is getting preped for some very rough times, and there if you cause trouble they just shoot you unlike here.
americans handle criminals same way they handle naughty children, they dont.
