For the first time in more than four decades Mexican immigrants are returning home at a higher rate than they are entering the United States.
The Pew Research Center released a study on Nov. 19 showing that from 2009 to 2014 an estimated 870,000 Mexicans came to the United States while 1 million returned home, a loss for the United States of 130,000 people.
The report cited family reunification, less job opportunities and tighter border security as reasons for the historic shift.
