It has recently been reported that Mexican undocumented immigration to the United States has reached net zero, that is that amount of people leaving equals the amount of people entering. Heightened border militarization and a shaky economy have forced many immigrants reconsidering life in the U.S. The net zero reality isn't much reflected in the persistent moral panic about immigration. Does the murder of two undocumented immigrants by armed vigilantes in camouflage garb reflect an reasonable American concern about the effects immigration or perceived fear founded on racism?
