Fewer Mexicans Entering U.S., More Leaving

Mexican immigration to the United States has slowed after four decades of the largest rush of migrants from a single country in American history and may even be declining, a report by the Pew Hispanic Center says. —ARK

The New York Times:

In what the report called a “notable reversal of the historic pattern,” the number of Mexicans leaving rose sharply in the five years after 2005, while the new flow of migrants coming from Mexico into the United States fell steeply, Pew demographers found.

For the first time in at least two decades, the population of illegal immigrants from Mexico living in this country significantly decreased, according to the report. In 2011, about 6.1 million Mexicans were living here illegally, down from a peak of nearly 7 million in 2007, it said.

… [Jeffrey Passel, the senior demographer at the Pew Hispanic Center and a co-writer of the report] said the data does not allow Pew demographers to say which factor was most important in reducing the population of illegal immigrants. The report cited a mix, including high unemployment in the United States, particularly in the construction industry; heightened border enforcement and increased deportations by the American authorities; and a long-term decline in birth rates in Mexico.

tic,

All I know about Mel Gibson is what I see on HBO and in the theater.  He has proven very successful in his career, far more so than you. 

Gibson is entitled to his beliefs as you are and as I am and I believe you to be an idiot and a serial spammer, a textbook example of the zionist trolls who attempt to derail conversations by smears, insults and assinine comments.

As many times as I’ve seen other commenters state the same I believe we have reached consensus.

If your are going to play shadchen then you should give some background.  Until now I had never heard of Hutton Gibson but I figure you would know him being on your masada2000 list.

From what I’ve read about him on his website he seems alot smarter than you and less likely to put his foot in his mouth than you.

Patsy, you march violet, I’m not welcome in apartment houses, as I make quite a
lot of very loud sounds.

As long as they ain’t building any ovens for you, enjoy your dead soul self.

No tic, My soul is quite intact but thanks for the concern.

BTW, ‘Mandy’ Patinkin doesn’t do a thing for me, do you guys sit around watching Yentl and cry up a storm? Must be a Jewish thing.

tic,

Of course you wouldn’t see anything wrong with dual citizenship since you no doubt qualify.  If the SHTF it must be nice to know you can flee to israel and there is no extradition with our bestest buddy ally.

Pat——if spouting bigotry is something that you enjoy, go right ahead…..you’re
only diminishing yourself….unless your kid reads what you’re writing and knows
that it’s you.. then you’re harming the kid.

I can think of alot of those dual citizens infesting NYC who won’t fight in the armed forces of the US but will drop trowel and go to israel to serve in a marva, maybe visit the settlements and punk on a Pal.

I’d rather have the mexicans.

interesting that we have 6million illegal Mexican immigrants instead of 7million.
perhaps it’s only some manifestation of a temporary dissatisfaction….


still, 6million is enough so that we needn’t worry about a shortage in NYC area.
