What does that immigration reform entail?
Building a fence on the border? No.
Enforcing proper identification to weed out those who have entered the country illegally? No.
Allowing states to enact laws which reinforce already existing federal immigration laws? Hell no.
Making the U.S. economy so crappy that more people want to leave the country than enter it?
We have a winner…

A four-decade tidal wave of Mexican immigration to the United States has receded, causing a historic shift in migration patterns as more Mexicans now leave the United States for Mexico than the other way around, according to a report from the Pew Hispanic Center.It is the first reversal in the trend since the Depression, and experts say that a declining Mexican birthrate and other factors may make it permanent.…Nearly 1.4 million Mexicans moved from the United States to Mexico between 2005 and 2010, double the number who came a decade earlier. The number of Mexicans who moved to the United States during that period fell to less than half of the 3 million who came between 1995 and 2000.…The reversal appears to be a result of tightened border controls, a weak U.S. job and housing construction market, a rise in deportations and a decline in Mexican birthrates, said the study…The drop comes at a time when overall immigration to the United States continues to grow, and reflects several factors specific to Mexico, including a relatively strong economy and a sharply diminished birthrate.…Gustavo Velasquez, 38, who came from Oaxaca, Mexico, 12 years ago and serves as the director of the D.C. Office on Human Rights, said that the scarcity of U.S. jobs is causing more Mexicans to think twice about moving.
Only Obamanomics would make the Mexican economy seem more enticing than the U.S. economy…
