Contrary to the expectations of anti-immigrant activists, unauthorized immigrants are not leaving the United States and returning home en masse in response to the onslaught of federal, state and local immigration-enforcement initiatives in recent years. In fact, preliminary evidence indicates that unauthorized immigration to the United States from Mexico may be inching its way upward again for the first time since the economic downturn began in 2007. Why? Because unauthorized immigration responds far more to the state of the U.S. economy than it does to the intensity of U.S.
