Report: Fewer Mexicans entering U.S.

"The number of Mexicans moving to the USA has dropped sharply since the middle of the decade, according to a new report by the Pew Hispanic Center."

"Figures from various sources, including the Census Bureau, show that 30% to 50% fewer Mexicans came here — legally or illegally — in 2008 compared with 2006, says Jeffrey Passel, a senior demographer at the non-partisan research center, who is a co-author of the study."

"Last year, 653,035 of the 705,005 people caught breaching the southern border were Mexican, he says."
