MEXICO CITY A government survey finds Mexican emigration dropped 13 percent in the first quarter of 2009 an ongoing trend as the U.S. economic recession discourages Mexicans from crossing the border in search of work.

The National Statistics and Geography Institute found that 137,497 people left Mexico in the first three months of 2009, compared to 159,024 during the same period of 2008.

More people returned to Mexico than left: Immigration to Mexico rose from 120,715 to 138,599 in the first quarter, a 12 percent increase. The institute released its findings from household surveys Tuesday.

Mexican emigration has dropped steadily over the past two years, a trend experts attribute to the U.S. economic downturn and tighter border security.

And this is one of the few good trends in our country.

Absolutely useless article because they don't take into account the thousands of crimaliens that pour over our Southern border every night... Legal "emigration" from Mexico has never been a problem. At least they can be screened for Tuberculosis and other diseases that Mexicans aren't vaccinated against. It's the illegals that come here and live illegally, using our health care system and schools for free, that are the problem..
