For first time since Depression, more Mexicans leave U.S. than enter
Washington Post ^ | April 23, 2012 | Tara Bahrampour

“I think the massive boom in Mexican immigration is over and I don’t think it will ever return to the numbers we saw in the 1990s and 2000s,” said Douglas Massey, a professor of sociology and public affairs at Princeton University and co-director of the Mexican Migration Project, which has been gathering data on the subject for 30 years.

Nearly 1.4 million Mexicans moved from the United States to Mexico between 2005 and 2010,

I think this means the government will spend a lot of money to get them back.

Seems to me that we hear about illegals leaving every election year.

LOL! Each will probably receive a forclosed home and a free Cheby Bolt.

With all of the "boomers" retiring, the commie 'RATS were counting on the illegals to pay the Social Security bills. I wonder if the 'RATS have a Plan B.

We’re finally going to get our border fence, but all the guards and guns will be pointed north.

And they won’t be aimed at Mexicans leaving.

Yep, call me skeptical. This revelation comes out at a most opportune time for Zer0, especially since he's restricted the deportation of so-called non criminal illegals.

They may be leaving but are still registered to vote. I’ve been reading the Asian Journal about these clowns still receiving green cards and citizenship applications even tho’ they have done the worst crimes.

I don’t believe this for a single second.

Lies, lies and more DAMN LIES......

Our economy is on the way to wellness.

Unemployment is down and it is expected to get down to around 7.8% by sometime next year.

The war on terror is over.

The illegal alien problem has been resolved.

Blah, blah, blah fricking blah.

One good thing comes out of the Obama regime! He has trashed the economy so badly that Mexico is the new land of opportunity! I’m sure that being in Mexico won’t stop them from voting for Obama in November.

If Obama gets reelected...I'm thinking of joining them.

Unless a new rebellion against socialist America begins to coalesce, that is.

Obama has already implemented a coup against our Constitution and its authority. He has taken over the DOJ and, of course, the Executive Office (including the EPA and the areas of authority of all his czars).

Is is treason to try to restore America to that which its founders laid the cornerstone? It is treason to save the America envisioned by our founding fathers?

out, will soon, along with Big Sis, deploy the National Guard to keep them in.

That’s because it’s the hookers who are leaving, following the GSA and Secret Service scandals. Ever seen any hookers at Home Depot?

The DOJ probably ensures they all get absentee ballots before they go.

Yeah; right....

They're goin' home to pick up more family and friends, and headed back across the river for "Los Freebies", and getting more voters for The Messiah, for 2012 Elections.

ICE confines detainees with tuberculosis in 'airborne infection isolation rooms'

Snip: Thu, 2012-04-19 Health care officials within Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have established more than 50 “airborne infection isolation rooms” at more than a dozen different detention centers across the country to deal with those illegal aliens they suspect may already have – or might soon develop – active tuberculosis.

Not buying it.

But of course, this can be used by the open borders folks as another justification for granting asylum to the 15 to 20 million here illegally now. See, the problem has solved itself and now there is little reason to put off legalization of the fine, hardworking, churchgoing folks already here.

In other words, if the work dries up, a certain percentage will indeed self-deport.

Secure the border. Enforce the law. Over a very few years the problem will resolve itself. No need for any grand “comprehensive” anything other than the triple-fence and the concerted focus on enforcing existing laws.

I hate to say it, but you may be right - only the Dims can spin an economy that's so bad even illegals can't take it anymore as a good thing, and get away with it.
