    Sad: Illegals are leaving in record number

    FOXNews.com - Illegal Immigrants Returning to Mexico in Record Numbers - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News


    DALLAS Illegal immigrants are returning home to Mexico in numbers not seen for decades and the Mexican government may have to deal with a crush on its social services and lower wages once the immigrants arrive.

    The Mexican Consulate's office in Dallas is seeing increasing numbers of Mexican nationals requesting paperwork to go home for good, especially parents who want to know what documentation they'll need to enroll their children in Mexican schools.

    "Those numbers have increased percentage-wise tremendously," said Enrique Hubbard, the Mexican consul general in Dallas. "In fact, it's almost 100 percent more this year than it was the previous two years."

    The illegal immigrant population in the U.S. has dropped 11 percent since August of last year, according to the Center for Immigration Studies. Its research shows 1.3 million illegal immigrants have returned to their home countries.

    Some say illegal immigrants are leaving because a soft economy has led to fewer jobs, causing many laborers to seek work elsewhere.

    Others argue that a tough stance on immigration through law enforcement has spread fear throughout the illegal population.

    "There's no question there's a variety of suggestions that people are in fact returning," said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies. "Remittances, which is the money immigrants send home to Mexico, have gone down dramatically over the past year. Again, probably part the economy, but also part enforcement, leading to fewer people being here."

    Advocates for immigrants are disturbed by the trend. Albert Ruiz, an organizer for the League of United Latin American Citizens, agrees that more undocumented immigrants are going home but says families are being torn apart in the process.

    If a father is deported, Ruiz says, his family members in America are forced either to fend for themselves or follow him to a country where they've never even lived.

    "So the mother is saying we should return home with the breadwinner of the family to Mexico, and the children are saying, I don't want to leave, I'm a U.S. citizen, I don't know that country," said Ruiz.

    Mexican President Felipe Calderon plans to help returning nationals by providing food, medical care and temporary shelter if needed. But reports are already out in Mexico that the large number of illegal immigrants returning home could drive down wages and put pressure on social services the same concerns many Americans have with illegals living and working in the U.S.
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    So what, that is what they get for exporting their citizens North.

    Advocates for immigrants my , they are advocates for illegal aliens to help better their socialist agenda. If the families are being torn apart then take them with ya.

    and the children are saying, I don't want to leave, I'm a U.S. citizen, I don't know that country
    I understand and can appreciate your plight, but it ain't my problem that your parents BROKE THE LAW!

    Aw, shucks!!!!!!!
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    We should throw a parade. Of course we have a "soft economy", half of the people in the country aren't paying for the services we give!

    Let me get this right they are worried about what these people will do to their social services,how about you take of them we been shouldering their medical and schooling for years and were tired of it,And I don't think 2 people illegally in this country can pop out an american,and then claim deporting them would be a hardship on poor little Pedro
