Mexico immigration on the decline due to ecomony

Posted on November 21st, 2011 No Comments

According to data from the Mexican government, the number of Mexican immigrants leaving America and the number coming to America has almost cancelled each other out.

In 2000, 1.6 million Mexican illegal immigrants were arrested. That number has decreased to around 300,000 in 2011, according to Homeland Security.

Many believe the United States’ struggling economy, fear of getting arrested at the border, and dangerous drug cartels have deterred many would-be immigrants from crossing. However, immigration officials say that they believe this decline is only temporary. Once the economy picks back up and unemployment rates go down, immigration is expected to rise.
