Mexicans coming back

More Mexican immigrants have returned to Mexico from the U.S. than have migrated to USA from 2009 to 2014 according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of newly available government data from both countries. This is far from being the real data, but it shows the estimate thrown by both governments.

Today is Revolution Day in México, and I just woke up with these news that you can read here:

More Mexicans leaving than coming to the U.S.A.

Mexican Inmigration

From 2009 to 2014, 1 million of Mexicans and their families including children born in the USA have left the U.S.A for México according to data from the 2014 Mexican National Survey of Demographic Dynamics (ENADID). U.S. census data for the same period show an estimated 870,000 Mexican nationals left Mexico to go to the U.S.A. a smaller number than the flow of families from the U.S. to Mexico.

We can speculate a lot of why are the reasons of these numbers which are contrary to the popular belief. I will dare to throw the following speculations:

1.- A slow recovery of U.S.A economy has created less attractive opportunities for Mexicans living in the States.

2.- An increased enforcement on deportations done in Obama’s administration.
14% of Mexicans returning to Mexico declare in the survey they have come back because of deportation.

3.- Mexicans’ nostalgia for México and their families made them return after many years living abroad. 61% of the people in the survey declare that.

4.- The view that life is better in the States has changed.
While almost half (48%) of adults in Mexico believe life is better in the U.S.A; a growing share says it is neither better nor worse than life in Mexico. 33% of adults in México say life is just the same in the States than in México.

5.- Mexicans hate to be discriminated.
The speech of politicians such as Donald Trump and the constant discrimination Mexicans and Latinos suffer in the street made some Mexican citizens to realize they want to get out. That happens also with the tourists. In my case, after some bad treatment I got while traveling “In Transit” even with a up-to-date American Visa. I decided to try not to visit again the USA for holidays. There are many countries in the world that are worth to visit.


Happy Revolution Day to my Mexican friends in Mexico. I hope we can stand out to make things better in our country.


Top Music 2014

Top Music 2014


So far 2014 is about to end, and I want to share a list of my top songs released this year. To choose them, I selected which songs I have played the most on iTunes and heard on Radio and Clubs. I added some extra points if those songs where used for any particular choreography, if they were a hit on my dance classes or if they have some special meaning for me. I tried to put from many genres. I hope you enjoy them and run to get those you like.

Ya casi se termina el 2014 y quiero compartir una lista de mis canciones Top que fueron lanzadas este año. Para escogerlas, seleccione entre las canciones que más he reproducido en iTunes, escuchado en la radio o oído en clubs. Les di puntos extras a las canciones que seleccioné para alguna coreografía en particular, si fueron un hit en mis clases de baile o si tienen algún significado especial para mi. Traté de poner de varios géneros. Espero las disfruten y corran y consigan las que les gusten. Continue reading “Top Music 2014”
