Bad News For Trump or Good?

Rush Limbaugh (who I seldom listen to) was complaining a couple of days back that Pew had published a study showing that Mexicans are leaving the U.S., not coming here.  The news media, of course, are covering this. Rush sees this as dishonesty intended to make Trump and his concern about illegal immigration seem wrong.  I don't know.  If, as claimed, the weak U.S. economy is driving more Mexicans back to Mexico than are coming here, it tells me that enforcing our existing laws about hiring illegals would drive vast numbers back to Mexico: self-deportation.
