A Tale of Two Headlines…..

USA TODAY – 4 Days Ago…..

 More Mexicans returning home, fewer immigrating to U.S. Mexican immigration to the United States is on the brink of a historic reversal: More Mexicans may be going back to Mexico than coming in, according to a Pew Hispanic Center report Monday.

The influx of Mexicans, which has dominated U.S. immigration patterns for four decades, began to tumble in 2006 and 2007 as the housing bust and recession created a dearth of jobs. At the same time, the number of Mexicans returning to their native country along with their U.S.-born children soared.

Stricter border enforcement, more deportations and tough state immigration laws such as the Arizona statute being challenged before the Supreme Court on Wednesday probably also contributed to the shift, says Jeffrey Passel, lead author of the report. The study analyzed data from censuses and a variety of other sources in both countries.

  • McALLEN, Texas (AP) — An unprecedented surge of children caught trudging through South Texas scrublands or crossing at border ports of entry into the U.S. without their families has sent government and nonprofit agencies scrambling to expand their shelter, legal representation and reunification services. On any given day this year, the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement has been caring for more than 2,100 unaccompanied child immigrants.

The influx came to light last week when 100 kids were taken to Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio for temporary housing. It was the first time the government has turned to the Defense Department — now, 200 boys and girls younger than 18 stay in a base dormitory.

While the issue of unaccompanied minors arriving in the U.S. isn’t new, the scale of the recent increase is. From October 2011 through March, 5,252 kids landed in U.S. custody without a parent or guardian — a 93 percent increase from the same period the previous year, according to data released by the Department of Health and Human Services. In March alone, 1,390 kids arrived.

Now wait just a minute, the last three days the news has been saturated with stories of a mass EXODUS of “migrants” heading back to Mexico. So which story are you sticking with mass media? That there isn’t an illegal immigration problem anymore, or the pull on the heartstrings, “do it for the children” angle. Oh by the way, did I mention that here in Obamaville, for the first time in history, Mexico’s economic growth is 3.7% and ours is only 2.2%……..How’s that hope and change….jerkoffs! Thanks alot for voting in a community organizer with communist leanings and who’s never held a real job in his life! NOBAMA 2012
