The Wave of New Democrats Coming From Mexico Has Pretty Much Stopped

Bad news for the Democrats - that wave of new voters they're counting on has pretty much stopped (from Hot Air):
The largest wave of immigration in history from a single country to the United States has come to a standstill. After four decades that brought 12 million current immigrants—more than half of whom came illegally—the net migration flow from Mexico to the United States has stopped—and may have reversed, according to a new analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center of multiple government data sets from both countries.

The standstill appears to be the result of many factors, including the weakened U.S. job and housing construction markets, heightened border enforcement, a rise in deportations, the growing dangers associated with illegal border crossings, the long-term decline in Mexico’s birth rates and changing economic conditions in Mexico.
And another thing, once they get here there's no guarantee they'll stay Democrats:
Democrats have counted Hispanics as a pivotal part of their coalition, but there’s no guarantee that as first-generation immigrants assimilate, they will remain reliable partisan voters. Indeed, a complementary Pew Hispanic Center study, released last month, showed immigrants becoming more Republican the longer they’ve been in this country — a similar narrative to other first-generation ethnic groups.
They're not stupid - the people that have come here from Mexico are coming for an opportunity at a better life by leaving a corrupt country. Once they get here and start learning about the corruption of the Democrat party, of course they're more likely to become Republicans.

I'd take their numbers with a grain of salt, I mean, does Pew have someone standing at the US/Mexico border counting the number of Mexicans sneaking past the Border Patrol each day?

The fact is that the Democrat stalwart resistance to Voter-ID was making it look -even to the most independent of casual observers -as though they were pro-voter-fraud, so they needed a way to make Mr & Mrs America think it's no longer an issue -look all the Mexican invaders just un-invaded your country!

If the number of drunk driving when they're not raping Mexicans can be brushed aside, the media can get back to what they'd rather be discussing...

Except those who came here because crime pays better here.
