Literally Decimated

I heard this figure on the radio this morning, but haven't yet found a link:

10% of the population of Mexico resides in the United States. 15% of of Mexico's workforce is in the United States.

These are astounding figures. If accurate, Mexico's population has literally been decimated by illegal immigration.

One has to wonder whether, but for the corruption of Mexico's government, this figure alone would spur greater enforcement efforts by the Mexican government. After all, the Soviets built walls over the bleeding of their workforce to the West.
