Reverse immigration is a reduction in the population of a country by a rapid return of immigrants to the country of their origin.

Reverse immigration in the United States began in 2007.[citation needed]


A steady stream of illegal immigrants occurred between Latin America and the United States beginning in about 1970.[citation needed]

Contributing factors include the economic history of Mexico, which created long-term unemployment issues from 1970 through 2007.[citation needed] Refugees fled across the border to the US seeking better employment opportunities during each economic crisis in Latin America.[citation needed]

The illegal immigrant population began to decline in the US in 2007 as the economy of Latin America began to improve.[citation needed]
