An estimated 243,253 Mexicans lived in Colorado in 2007, down from 254,844 in 2006

Not exactly a monumental decrease. ...and they'll be back when the economy gets better, no matter what they say.

How do you say "Family Reunification finally became worth more to Mrs. Lopez than suckling off the American public taxpayer teat" in Spanish?

This economic mess actually puts us in a stronger position to fight amnesty and we should use it.

Still others return on their own terms, having accrued the wealth to let them live their dreams in Mexico.

"I can't complain. I have a job and I am able to come back if I want," said Gustavo Camacho, 43, who works for a firm digging trenches for electrical cables in Denver.

Camacho, who is from Jalisco, has been here twice, from 1999-2003 and again since 2005. The first time, he saved enough money for a house in Jalisco. This time, he has enough to start a business — either a car repair shop or selling food on the street.

Well, it's nice to know the little grinning baztards are so confident they can violate U.S. law on a whim.

That is just PEACHY!

Yeah right. Wait until amnesty is discussed and passed and you will see a surge from Mexico and elsewhere wanting to take advantage of the amnesty. Then they can move freely back and forth.

Nice headline. “Some Mexicans going home never to return”

Now, as we all know, “some” literally means “at least one” but “Some” in this article seems to indicate four. Oh well, only 19,999,996 more to go.

Good news, but come back when every one of them is out and not coming back. That will definitely be good economic news.

Absolutely. And I'm sure our newly elected mooseslime marxist will do much more than Jorge in order to secure the borders.

He can't do it by decree unless we roll over and allow it. After all, it wasn't just conservatives who fought it off last time.

Thanks for the good news. Hopefully many more will make the same decision. I am all for any foreigners coming here legally (my relatives had to get through the Ellis Island quotas in the 20s and the sickness tests) and they ASSIMILATED into the AMERICAN culture and became PART of America. Anyone who want to come here legally and work hard and not make a little ethnic island and learn English and not remain a citizen or loyal to their native country, I have no problem with.
