Former Mexican president on immigrants: "We want them back"

“We are building the opportunities in Mexico. We work hard to have jobs for them. We want them back. We need them back,” said Fox during an appearance on WFAA-TV’s Inside Texas Politics on Sunday.

For the first time in more than four decades, more Mexicans are now returning to their country rather than entering the United States, according to a Pew Research Center analysis last month.

According to the report, from 2009 to 2014, an estimated 870,000 Mexicans came to the United States while 1 million returned home, a net loss for the United States of 130,000.
