More Illegal Aliens Returning to Mexico For Good
"From Santa Maria del Refugio, a once rural, now almost suburban, community of 2,500 in central Mexico's Guanajuato state, young men have gone to the United States seeking the social mobility they could not find at home," the Washington Post writes.
"Their money, and many of the workers themselves, have since returned, as the U.S. economy slowed in the global recession. For the first time in 40 years, net migration is effectively zero. About the same number of Mexicans left the United States last year as arrived. Migration experts expect the northward flow to pick up again as the U.S. economy improves. It is also possible that as Mexico provides more opportunity for upward mobility, some potential migrants will stay home."
