We begin a new year and the month that our new lord ascends the throne of power…..and as he does so the situation with immigrants will make it to the forefront…..during the campaign there was lots of talk and insults flying around the issue….and of course those BB brains that worship Trump still echo the crap about all those “illegals” pouring across the border daily.
The problem is that may not be the truth…oh the horror! A politician that lies! Now that would be something to grab the attention of the public.
A new study challenges that assumption.
“The U.S./Mexico Cycle: End of an Era” concludes that the days of massive legal and illegal immigration from Mexico have ended and are not likely to return. Hence, it is called “the end of an era,” according to Aracely Garcia-Granados, executive director of Mexicans and Americans Thinking Together (MATT), which conducted the study in collaboration with Southern Methodist University.
The study confirms what a Pew Hispanic Center study first reported in 2012: The net emigration of Mexicans to the United States has slowed if not reversed, and that many Mexicans residing in the United States are going back home in historic numbers.
The value of the new report is that it reveals surprising reasons for the new trend in Mexico–U.S. migration. Economic motives for leaving the United States and deportation were not among the top reasons. The reasons were generally much more personal.
The findings are based on interviews with 601 returnees from the state of Jalisco, which has the highest return migrant population in Mexico among the Mexican states. The MATT website states that this is the first study to investigate the factors driving the return of Mexican immigrants to Mexico.
The top three reasons for return migration were family reasons (37 percent), nostalgia for their country of origin (29 percent), and difficulty in finding a job in the United States (11 percent). Only 1.7 percent said being discriminated against or racism was a reason for their return.
Of course the GOP and the other bigoted twats will ignore the data…they will do what their hero does…..take to social media to make up the story they want to be the story……there are NOT millions pouring across the border for free stuff….the trickle is in the other direction home.
