Recently I argued in a column and blogposts (here and here) that we may be seeing a reversal of the huge surge of Latino immigration into this country over the past quarter-century. Now here comes an interesting piece in the Foreign Policy blog that projects that 3 million Mexican immigrants may return to Mexico in "the coming months"—far more than I would have thought. Statistics on this subject have a substantial margin of error. We all, whatever our views on immigration issues, need to keep an eye on this.
