Mexican Government Reports Decrease in Number of National Migrants

El Universal newspaper is reporting that the number of temporary migrant workers who crossed the border to the U.S. slowed down between 2006 and 2008. According to a survey conducted by Mexico's Geography and Statistics Institute, the number of Mexican nationals who left the country for each one thousand who remained therein decreased in 42.3 percent.

By contrast, the number of immigrants who went back to Mexico didn't change.
