Back in the Land of the Aztec Sun
Sam Dillon, a veteran New York Times reporter and the co-author of a great introductory book to modern Mexico, appears to be back covering America's southern neighbor. Today's story is a thoughtful piece suggesting that the predicted exodus of Mexican migrants from the United States as a result of the recession isn't happening, in large part because of security concerns. I'm not entirely convinced that security is the only (or even a primary) reason that said exodus has not yet occurred, but it's a good read in any event.
