% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Laurence Iliff of The Dallas Morning News discusses his new article that Mexicans are staying home rather than coming here:

“Would-be immigrants may be staying home in significant numbers, a Mexican government survey says, a trend that analysts on Tuesday attributed to a crackdown on illegal border crossers, raids at employment sites and a slowing U.S. economy, particularly in the construction industry.
The third-quarter survey, used to determine the employment rate because many workers are off the tax rolls, showed a 30 percent drop from the third quarter of 2005 in the number of people planning to work abroad or to cross the border.
About 76,000 Mexicans were “looking for a job in another country or preparing to cross the border,” according to the survey by the National Institute for Statistics and Geography, or INEGI for its initials in Spanish.” (Mexicans thinking twice about U.S. jobs, survey finds)

We will chat with Laurence about this new information.
