El Sol de Mexico Mexico City 8/13/13
This is the full translation of an article that ought to ring alarm bells on Capitol Hill, which was in one in a large chain of Mexican newspapers. Remember: emigration defined is to leave one country or region to settle in another. Please consider copying and sending this particular item off to your legislators. Note: bolding by Editor.
Mexico : No. 1 in the world in EMIGRATION
Mexico City – Aleida Alavez Ruiz, Vice President of the governing board of the Chamber of Deputies (House of Representatives) said at the opening of a discussion panel about “Youth and Migration” that Mexico ranks first in the world in emigration, according to data from the World Bank.
In the case of Mexico, according to the Economic Cooperation and Development Organization, (ECDO) she pointed out that currently 4 of every 10 youths aged between 15 and 24 emigrate, mainly to the United States, for which reason it is necessary to create public policies to avoid their exclusion.
(transl. note: what is meant by her here is the exclusion of those youths from Mexican society in general)
She pointed out that Jalisco, Michoacan, Zacatecas, Puebla, San Luis Potosi, Hidalgo, Guerrero, Oaxaca and Chihuahua are the states that evidence the largest exodus of youths.
She asserted that “the emigration of youths comes across as one of the facets of extreme exclusion which shares common characteristics with the experiences of exile, uprooting and the loss of temporary or spatial horizons, such as the annulment of employment expectations or of personal relationships.”
At the event, which took place on the International Day of Youth, she added that, along with Turkey, Mexico leads ECDO member countries in the drop-out rate of high school level students, that is, 6 out of every 10 abandon school, which in many cases generates the search for opportunities away from their place of origin.
She emphasized that 530 thousand abandon secondary (education) yearly, on top of the fact that there are 8 million “neither-nors” (youths who neither go to school nor work) of which 60 percent live in poverty, besides the fact that youths between 14 and 29 years enter into informal work and receive salaries up to three times less than what adults receive.
She said that the foregoing is due to the fact that this portion of the population represents one third of the persons who emigrate at an international level, that is, nearly 27 million persons who face challenges tied to social exclusion, poverty, exploitation and discrimination.
Despite the migrants’ “predominant negative perception” she deemed important to keep in mind the enriching contributions they generate for humanity. “Emigration is not so much a problem, but a social reality that brings about evolution and makes positive contributions to the place where the emigrants arrive and from which they depart.”
At the event, organized by the Commission of Migratory Affairs, Deputy (Congresswoman) Lorenia Iveth Valles Sampedro (PRD) (political party initials) pointed out that in the case of the United States, Mexicans are the youngest group among the Hispanics who emigrate to that country.

Thousands of Prisoners Return to the Streets (California)
16,902 inmates on hold for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Also, 3,962 prisoners were listed as potential ICE holds…The simplest and easiest resolution is vigorous border security that would help keep aliens out of California and thus, by extension, reduce the numbers of crimes they commit. (Note: how many other states with overcrowded prisons will be doing the same.)
