Mexican immigration to the United States is steeply declining, CNN reported.
According the a report released by the Pew Hispanic Center Monday, the immigration rate from Mexico to the United States has decreased, while the amount of Mexican immigrants leaving the United States has increased sharply.
From 2005 to 2010, only 1.37 million Mexicans immigrated to the United States, about half of the immigrants from previous five year periods.
Between 2005 and 2010, around 1.39 million Mexican immigrants returned to Mexico from the United States, more than twice the amount that have done so in past five-year periods.
Mexican census data shows that there are more U.S. born children living in Mexico, the likely result of their parents being deported, the Denver Post reported.
