The Mexican Migration

Maybe the numbers don't have significance. Or maybe we're annexing Mexico.

Item from U.S. News & World Report:
More to a Better Life Than Afterlife

File this under interesting statistics: Mexico has lost more people to migration to the United States than to death since 2000, according to the country's demographics agency. An average of 577,000 people up and moved to the United States annually during the 2000-2005 period, while 495,000 people a year died in Mexico. The agency reports that about 11 million Mexicans are living, legally or not, in the United States.
Of course, the above item does not take into account the birth rate in Mexico.
