At least that is what a Pew study thinks….
Reason for this?
Not Trump or even Obama enforcement efforts….
The number of people coming from Mexico has dropped as the Mexican economy has grown..
He’s an idea….
Maybe if the US government spent money trying to improve the economies of the Central American countries?

Might be a whole lot cheaper then Trump’s wet dream of building a wall….
The number of unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. has dropped to the lowest level in 10 years, but today’s immigrants are more likely to have been in the U.S. for more than a decade, according to a new study by Pew Research.
