More Mexicans leaving U.S. than arriving

For the first time since the 1940s, more Mexicans are leaving the U.S. to return home than arriving.

A Pew Research Center report cites a sluggish U.S. economy, stricter enforcement of immigration laws and family reunifications as reasons. The report suggests immigration from Mexico may have peaked for good.

Asians, many of them from China, now represent the only group in the U.S. that is growing because of immigration.
