And many are already returning home. The savings are to return home before they get busted by the authorities, which generally results in spending a long time in jail before returning home.

Sounds like a logical response to me. Illegal immigrants must fear a lunatic in the White House.

Look in a any food or whatever window all over NYC and you'll see "help wanted" signs written in Spanish, usually for delivery persons but other jobs as well.


New York City is a very expensive place to live and options for finding "cheap" housing are getting tight for everyone. East Harlem once was such a place but the Hispanic/Latino "illegals are finding themselves priced out as the area gentrifies. Thus these people like others are finding themselves having to look outside of Manhattan (usually far out) to find housing they can afford. At some point many must crunch the numbers and realize they are better going back "home" or at least getting out of New York.


The Mexican economy actually isn't that bad compared to previous years. Thanks to NAFTA more and more manufacturing is moving down south, which brings jobs as well.


For many illegals am betting they just are waking up to the fact there won't be a smooth and vast "asylum" immigration bill anytime soon.

This article is trash.It's been less than a month since Trump was elected and the NYT notices a widespread trend?

The writer is lumping in permanent residents with undocumented immigrants. $3,000 gold rings with jeans in the same article?

The writer claims that people are already leaving even though nothing has happened? Doesn't make much sense.

I went the Queens Center today for some black friday shopping. The place was overrun with immigrants spending money left, right and center. The NYT writers must not shop at Queens Center.
