"More Mexican immigrants have returned to Mexico from the U.S. than have migrated here since the end of the Great Recession, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of newly available government data from both countries,"Ana Gonzalez-Barrera reported Thursday for the Pew Research Center.
"The same data sources also show the overall flow of Mexican immigrants between the two countries is at its smallest since the 1990s, mostly due to a drop in the number of Mexican immigrants coming to the U.S. . . ."

"A jury has convicted an Inkster officer whose bloody beating of a driver was captured on video of assault and misconduct in office," WDIV-TV in Detroit reported Thursday.
"The jury rendered their decision Thursday, also finding Melendez not guilty of a strangulation charge.
"Melendez is being held without bond until his sentencing on Dec. 3. His wife stormed out of the courtroom after Judge Vonda Evans announced Melendez's bond was denied.
"The jury this week rode in vans to see the street in Inkster where Floyd Dent was stopped by police and punched in the head 16 times by former Inkster police officer Melendez last January.
"The dashcam video wasn't publicly known until the Local 4 Defenders aired it in March. Melendez was fired, and Inkster agreed to pay $1.4 million to the 58-year-old Dent. . . ."
