Presidential candidates warning voters about the influx of undocumented immigrants from Mexico should have a look at a recent survey: Turns out more Mexicans are leaving the U.S. than entering it.
According to a report from the Pew Research Center, both legal and illegal immigration from Mexico to the U.S. may have peaked for good. Data collected from the two governments shows that from 2009 to 2014, 870,000 Mexicans immigrated to the U.S. while 1 million returned home.
