The report says from 2005-2010, 1.4 million Mexicans emigrated here, but the same number – including their U.S.-born kids – moved back.  The Pew Hispanic Center report cites many factors.

(Camarota) “Stepped up enforcement, the downturn in the U.S. economy, improvements in the Mexican economy and just the general decline in the number of young people in Mexico as fertility has declined in that country in recent decades.”

Steven Camarota with the Center for Immigration Studies says he thinks states like Arizona passing tough immigration laws may also play a role, but says it suggests the idea that immigrants are bound to stay once here, is false.
