“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.
