A Different Perspective On The Decline of Mexican Immigration

I have not posted for a while because I don’t want to post just to do it. Most of the articles I’ve read recently have not added any new information. But this one is different.

It’s a report done on Mexicans who lived here, either legally or illegally, and returned to Mexico. The link I provided also contains a PDF link you can look at with more comprehensive statistics. Then there is a poll taken of some who returned to Mexico.

The caveat to the poll of Mexicans who went home is that 600 people were polled, the interviews taking place in 2013. Not an insignificant number, but not comprehensive compared to the total who left. On the other hand, the results ARE very interesting. You might be surprised at how few said they wanted to return to the U.S. at some point.

Good reading.
