Immigration is a front and center issue this week as the Supreme Court weighs in on the constitutionality of Arizona’s anti-immigration “papers please” law. But a new study by the Pew Hispanic Center finds that the influx of undocumented immigrants from across the Southern border has drastically slowed.

According to the study, between 2005 and 2010, 1.4 million Mexicans immigrated to the United States – which is equal to the number of Mexican immigrants who left the United States either on their own or through deportation. Those numbers don’t bode well for Republicans who want to make immigration a wedge issue and declare that there’s an immigration crisis in America to justify radical laws like the one passed in Arizona.
