Why Mexico doesn’t want its ex-pats to come home

Remittances sent by Mexicans living abroad, mainly in the United States, are the country's second-largest source of foreign exchange, after oil, and help cover the living expenses of millions of people.

Mexico's emigration (to the U.S.) is a financially lucrative form of ethnic cleansing--moving those with the most indigenous heritage north, leaving Mexico for the mixed population with the most European blood. Until recently, the only immigration acceptable in Mexico was from Europe, which would “whiten” the general population. They are moving quickly to make sure the poorest people of Central America (who are also those with the most Indian heritage), make it across our border.
