Mexicans (legal and illegal) leaving is nothing more than supply and demand due to economic conditions. We already have our unofficial open border policy. This is proof.

I doubt it. Watch what happens when the economy turns around no matter what type of border changes we make. Where there is a will there is a way. Of course assuming nothing changes policy-wise before then.
