No work, no need … Made the trip for nothing.
When you have recent college grads, with diplomas working McDonald at hamburger flipper jobs, what did you expect? Me I was happy to have an American wait on me, who could speak fluent English for a change. The change is happening all over the area where I live. College grads as hamburger flippers. Remember how Democrats used to deride the “hamburger flippper jobs” under Bush? Sure you do. Now that college grads are forced to take the jobs or nothing, the media has grown a case of lock-jaw.
Now comes this report from the LA Times, a sometime believable source, saying the Mexicans are headed home. No work for the ignorant, not a good sign for the world.
I wonder why Obama doesn’t run to the nearest microphone and take credit? I wonder.
The number of Mexican migrants to the United States dropped significantly while the number of those returning home increased, bringing net migration from Mexico to a statistical standstill, according to a report published Monday.
The shift over the last several years marks a significant change after four decades of historic immigration from Mexico, according to the report by the Pew Hispanic Center.
“The largest wave of immigration in history from a single country to the United States has come to a standstill,” the report says.
The downward trend in migration started about five years ago, according to the report.
During that time the number of illegal immigrants from Mexico residing in the U.S. fell sharply from 7 million to about 6.1 million. At the same time, the number of legal Mexican immigrants residing in the U.S. increased slightly from 5.6 million to 5.8 million. Those estimates are based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
The report attributes the changes to several factors, including the weakened economy, increased border enforcement, a rise in deportations, growing dangers at the border and a long-term decline in Mexican birth rates.
