Of course they hire "Texans" that usually spend very little of their money in the local community, you know, that state money that came from taxes. Anyway, these guys work hard, earn their pay, and either ship it home or carry it back with them.

I don't blame any man or woman who works hard to support their families. I think it must be terrible to have to leave one's family and home to strike out and hope to find some way to earn enough to make it all worthwhile. Good for them.
Are you talking about immigration prior to welfare and food stamps?
Thanks from coke

I like Mexicans, when walking down a street after going to a Buddhist ceremony in the low rent district of San Diego, I was invited into their yard and eat hot peppers.

I think Pew Research is lying. There are lots more coming our way across the Mexican border than are returning.

I think when the poll was taken that was correct, more were returning, last year or so that has changed, and a larger number of OTM are crossing more so then mexicans.

The only time that more go South than North is just before Christmas when they go to visit their kin for 3 weeks or so. Many of them do that every year.

The only reason to move back to Mexico permanently is because they have amassed enough wealth to retire and want to live where the cost of living is much lower. Not many fall in that category because they have to give up so many benefits to leave.
