“The U.S. economic slump, more economic stability in some Mexican areas, increased U.S. enforcement on the border and in the interior plus the drop in the total fertility rate in Mexico are likely among the reasons for this drop,” said University of Texas sociology professor Nestor P. Rodríguez.

“On the other hand, arrests by federal authorities for immigration offenses is rising, no doubt partly due to greater enforcement efforts,” said Rodríguez, who has spent decades studying Latino migration and the impact of U.S. immigration policies on immigrant communities.
