      Fewer Mexican Immigrants Coming to U.S. ,
      But No Evidence That More Are Heading Home

       

      The flow of immigrants from Mexico to the United States has declined sharply since mid-decade, but there is no evidence of an increase during this period in the number of Mexican-born migrants returning home from the U.S. , according to a new analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center , a project of the Pew Research Center .

       

      Data from population surveys taken in the U.S. and Mexico indicate that the flow of migrants back to Mexico appears to be stable since 2006. Mexico 's National Survey of Employment and Occupation estimates that 433,000 Mexican migrants returned home between February 2008 and February 2009. For the same period in 2007-2008, 440,000 did; for the same period in 2006-2007, 479,000 did. Analysis of the U.S. Current Population Survey also finds no indication of substantially higher outflows to Mexico for 2007 and 2008.

       

      As for migration to the U.S. from Mexico , data from several sources attest to recent substantial decreases in the number of new arrivals. The inflow began to diminish in mid-decade and has continued to do so through early 2009, according to the latest available population surveys from both countries. This finding is reinforced by data from the U.S. Border Patrol showing that apprehensions of Mexicans attempting to cross illegally into the United States decreased by a third between 2006 and 2008.

      Mexico is by far the leading country of origin for U.S. immigrants, accounting for a third of all foreign-born residents and two-thirds of Hispanic immigrants. The U.S. is the destination for nearly all people who leave Mexico , and about one-in-ten people born there currently lives in the U.S.

       

      The report, Mexican Immigrants: How Many Come? How Many Leave? is authored by Jeffrey S. Passel, senior demographer, Pew Hispanic Center , and D'Vera Cohn, senior writer, Pew Research Center . It is available at the Pew Hispanic Center 's website, www.pewhispanic.org.

       

      The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, is a nonpartisan, non-advocacy research organization based in Washington, D.C. and is funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts.
