Is the migration over? We can hope so, but in the final analysis it is already too late. Demography is destiny and the Hispanic birthrate, along with their crime rate, far surpasses White America. It's always good to quit smoking, but often the damage is already done.

If you believe that the United States of America has, as a condition of its existence, a racial component, you have missed the point of the whole thing. It's an idea, and if you share it, you can be part of it. Heck, an extraterrestrial with the right mindset cam be an American. That's what makes us Americans. The racial thing is irrelevant, if the mind and modivation is correct.

They're a disaster by every metric, your pious blathering can't change the hard facts.

Gang membership, crime, academic, illegitimacy, and political. Go tell someone else how wonderful you are.

what makes us "Americans" is the ASSIMILATION of various ethnic groups into society.
We are no longer achieving that assimilation,instead we have Balkanization;groups staying separate intentionally. US Hispanics are now using Spanish as their primary language and gov't and private business accommodates them. The muslims are staying separate. the Chinese always have kept their own communities,but now we have Laotians,Vietnamese,Hmong,etc. Then there's the Slavics,Russian,Ukraine,Bulgaria,etc.

Curtis has probably never experienced a real ethnic neighborhood,or the crime they breed.
Is mass migration from Mexico to the United States a thing of the past?

At least for the moment, it is. Last May, the Pew Hispanic Center, in a study based on U.S. and Mexican statistics, reported that net migration from Mexico to this country had fallen to zero from 2005 to 2010.

Pew said 20,000 more people moved to Mexico from the United States than from there to here in those years. That's a vivid contrast with the years 1995 to 2000, when net inflow from Mexico was 2.2 million people.

Because there was net Mexican immigration until 2007, when...
