HaHa: more Mexicans are leaving the US compared to entering

Here’s another inconvenient fact for the hysterical right wing hate machine to freak out about. The New York Times is reporting today,

More immigrants from Mexico are leaving the United States than coming into the country, according to a report published Thursday by the Pew Research Center, a finding that marks the end of the largest wave of immigration from a single country in American history.

The shift marks the first time since immigration from the neighboring nation began to rise in the 1970s that fewer Mexicans came into America than returned home, the Pew report found. The reversal is primarily the result of a steep drop in Mexicans coming into the country.

While the border debate, especially among the Republican candidates for the presidential nomination, has focused on extending walls and expanding other enforcement measures, the Pew report indicates that stepped-up border measures under the Obama administration have already helped significantly in reducing illegal crossings by Mexicans.

Poor things. Here’ something they can blame Obama for, but they dare not do so because the result is something they want.

Pity.

    OOPS! Now Trumpster (rhymes with “Dumpster”) and Carson will have to stop fretting about the Mexicans and protect America from the terrible Syrian toddlers trying to invade our shores! YIKES!!

    I think Trump’s wall might just trap a bunch of homesick Mexicans here, thus denying their internationally-protected right to repatriation at will. Furthermore, we are beginning to see that folks have realized this is not the very best place in the world to BE! (It does beat Syria.)
