MEXICO CITY (AP) - A new report by U.S. and Mexican researchers
suggests an uptick in the number of undocumented immigrants headed to
the United States in the first half of 2012, and a slight decrease in
migrants returning to Mexico.
The report by Mexico's Colegio de la Frontera Norte and the
University of Southern California's Tomas Rivera Policy Institute
says the U.S. Mexican migrant population appears to have stabilized
and may be growing slightly.
It would be the first time net migration outflow from Mexico has
increased since the 2007 economic downturn.
The report released Tuesday says that heightened U.S. anti-
immigration efforts don't appear to have convinced migrants to leave.
The report is based on surveys done at Mexican border crossings, bus
stations and airports, and on U.S. deportation, repatriation and
demographics data.
