What was that question from the dumb Republican debates, about Mexicans… oh yes: How do you “turn off the magnet” that brings all those Mexitrons to the United States? Well, it appears we have our answer: make the United States really shitty. The Pew Hispanic Center has released a new report that shows “the net migration flow from Mexico to the United States has stopped—and may have reversed.” If so, it would be the first reversal since the Great Depression. Does this indicate that… something is wrong with the United States economy, now?
Indeed, the Mexicans are all scrambling to get out of the Greatest Fucking Country In The History Of The World now that there’s nothing desirable about it whatsoever. We should congratulate the politicians for finally getting past their partisan rhetoric on this issue and solving the problem by systematically destroying the nation.
A modest chunk of the reversal — between 5 and 35 percent, according to Pew’s crack team of narrow-downers — come from deportations. Massive deportations have been considered one of Barack Obama’s more cruel policy fetishes in his first term. But thanks to this Pew study, we know that it’s more like the administration has just been handing out free plane tickets to willing recipients. This Welfare President knows no end.
The standstill appears to be the result of many factors, including the weakened U.S. job and housing construction markets, heightened border enforcement, a rise in deportations, the growing dangers associated with illegal border crossings, the long-term decline in Mexico’s birth rates and changing economic conditions in Mexico.
Also too, idiots in Georgia.
