Fewer Mexican emigrants are sending money back from the US, according to the IDB's Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF). "The percentage of Mexicans who regularly make remittances fell to 64% in the first half of 2007, down from 71% last year," says the MIF. The drop was the steepest in states where Latin American immigration is most recent, at 56% this year from an average 80% in 2006. The survey was conducted in June.
