|How long will it be until Mexico starts having an illegal immigrant problem? Maybe we should hold up on that border fence idea a little longer...|
It appears that all the anti-economy legislation being passed by the geniuses in Sacramento has had an interesting side-effect: Illegal imigrants are reportedly leaving California to return home to Mexico where their prospects are better.
There are fewer undocumented immigrants in California – and the Sacramento region – because many are now finding the American dream south of the border.
"It's now easier to buy homes on credit, find a job and access higher education in Mexico," Sacramento's Mexican consul general, Carlos González Gutiérrez, said Wednesday. "We have become a middle-class country."
Mexico's unemployment rate is now 4.9 percent, compared with 9.4 percent joblessness in the United States.
