Actually, the state's finances have improved, and we may actually have a little bit of a surplus coming.

Ummm, no it doesnt. He claimed illegals were going BACK to their countries in droves which is completely false. If I gave you a dollar for every illegal that successfully snuck into the US and then voluntarily went back to their 3rd world ****hole of a country, you'd have about 4 bucks. All your findings say is that the number of illegals coming to the US has slowed down which we all know, it says NOTHING about illegals returning back to their countries. Learn to read.

You may be the most pleasant person on the forum since Mashi dropped out of sight recently.

Speaking of reading carefully:
More Mexicans returning home, fewer immigrating to U.S.

As jobs decline, many illegal immigrants are returning to Mexico | www.palmbeachpost.com

Home again in Mexico: Illegal immigration hits net zero - CSMonitor.com

And since you like FOX News so much:
Illegal Immigrants Returning to Mexico in Record Numbers | Fox News

And, by the way, when you read news from FOX, do try to recognize opinionated blogging from actual professional journalism. The "article" you linked is full of the writer's opinions. That is not news reporting.
I can dissect that for you (as a former journalist) if you'd like a lesson.

FOX was never intended to be a credible source for news. Rupert Murdoch has said facts are less important to FN than getting out the 'other side' of political opinion that the 'media' (whatever that entails) apparently does not. He and his cronies seem to have said as much, and more!:

We can do better than quote stats for these sorts of organizations, no?

From 2007 to 2009, the report says, more undocumented Mexicans left the United States than came here illegally.

Run that through English/Paleo-Con Bablefish if you need help.

Illegal Immigrants Returning to Mexico in Record Numbers | Fox News[/url]

The illegal immigrant population in the U.S. has dropped 11 percent since August of last year, according to the Center for Immigration Studies. Its research shows 1.3 million illegal immigrants have returned to their home countries.

How many in a drove? Anybody?
