Fascinating. I've been reading about reverse migration to Mexico due to general economic malaise, but nothing about this.

Good observations. A sidelight is that the recent Sudanese influx to our community may just help revitalize an older downtown mainline church in our community.

This IS a story that needs to be written, and Richard, YOU are the one who should write it! Will look forward to reading it.

I've been noticing this for a while, Its simply easier for the meet processor to have documented African refugees than to have undocumented Hispanics.

But personally I think that we need to start filling these positions with our nations huge supply of unskilled unemployed citizens. Especially factoring in our high school drop out rate. I've worked these kind of jobs before and they aren't bad, not great, but not bad.

We do need to supply jobs to refugees too, but generational unemployment is a massive drag to society.

How do we erase the stigma of hard dirty work?
