This article is funny because we were always worried about illegal immigrants entering the U.S from Mexico, and look at it now, Mexicans don’t even want to come to the U.S because they say they are better off staying in Mexico. I never even knew this; that the migration were decreasing as well. But I can relate to this; I have some family members in Portugal, and they don’t want to move here for a better life, they’d rather just stay in Portugal. The U.S isn’t really attractive to people because we are enforcing such rules!!! Well, this is what the U.S wants, to stop illegal immigrants from coming; well, we are getting that because Mexicans don’t want to come!! Also, there hasn’t been much childbirth, so that is a major factor because there are less people, and that will lead to less people trying to get into the U.S. Since education and employment have expanded in Mexico, there really is no need for Mexicans to enter the U.S. They will be better off there!! It is also much more dangerous to enter the U.S now because we have many officials guarding the border. The U.S just doesn’t look like the dreamland anymore; besides, if Mexico has more there now, then they can stay there!! In my opinion, the U.S isn’t a dreamland anymore and the economy has gone downhill!!

I often hear people say that Mexicans are crossing the border because they want to take all the things we have in the states, like it is some kind of 'greed' on their part. I have always said that people do not leave a place unless they are forced to, whether it is forced by other people or because their life is at stake. If there are not enough resources in an area, people will move to the nearest place with adequate resources. Instead of starving and living in the dirt, these people chose to risk their lives for the possibility of having their basic needs met. It is nice to see that Mexico is finally becoming a self-sustaining country that can offer its citizens enough to keep them from risking their lives for survival.

This article discusses how there is a significant decline of undocumented migration from Mexico into the United States.  Illegal immigration is becoming less attractive to Mexicans and they are deciding to stay in their country instead of coming to U.S. because Mexico is making some changes. It is expanding economic and educational opportunities in the cities. There is rising border crime, a major deterrent from emigrating, it is dangerous and expensive because of cartel controlled borders. Another change is the shrinking families. The manufacturing sector at the border is rising, democracy is better established, incomes have risen and poverty has declined. Also a tequila boom has taken place and has created new jobs for farmers cutting agave and for engineers at the stills.

This is an excellent source for the under-report DECLINE of undocumented migration into the United States.   "Economic, demographic and social changes in Mexico are suppressing illegal immigration as much as the poor economy or legal crackdowns in the United States."
