    Interesting immigration stats

    Finally, politicians figured out how to fix the immigration problem. Screw up the country and the economy so much that people are better off heading south.

    A lot of people are joking that this is a sign that Trump will be president.

    Remember, though, these stats aren't just the people who left voluntarily. This also includes deported illegals.

    I would think this would hurt Trump, showing a decline in numbers under the current plan. I mean, I suppose he could use it to slam the economy, but I see it as a no win for him, since cutting down the number, according to him, is a big part of helping the economy.

    Right. But just the fact that some stated that they would be better off in Mexico because of the poor economy is interesting. I am curious, though, as to how they track the "undocumented". It seems like it's very similar to unemployment numbers. The ones who are no longer looking for work aren't part of the statistics.
