Migration from Mexico – domestic factors

Mexican illegal immigration to the US has increased in part due to improved transportation access to the border from core areas in Mexico,  growth of border city pairs such as San Diego/Tijuana, and reduced efforts by Mexican authorities to limit emigration at the federal, state, and local levels.  Also, changes in bank systems that facilitated remittance of earnings back to Mexico are a contributing factor.
