Mexicans living outside their country sent home almost $27 billion in remittances in 2016, the highest on record. Most was sent by electronic transfer, with about $600 million arriving in cash or by money order. After auto exports, remittances are Mexico's greatest source of foreign income-AP

For two decades, 1990-2010, the largest population transfer on Earth remained Mexico to the United States: 500,000 every year 1990-2000, 240,000 every year 2000-2010, per Sept. 2016 UN report,  "International Migration Report 2015," Dept. of Economic and Social Affairs. ........

2/1/17, "Mexico’s remittances reach almost $27 billion," AP via Washington Post, Mexico City

"Mexicans living abroad sent home almost $27 billion in 2016, the highest yearly figure on record, the central bank reported on Wednesday. The remittances rose 8.8 percent, from $24.78 billion in 2015 to 26.97 billion last year.

The central bank said almost all the money was sent to Mexico by electronic transfers, though about $600 million continues to arrive in cash or by money orders.

Remittances have become Mexico’s most important source of foreign income after auto exports of almost $34 billion per year. Remittances have far surpassed the $15.6 billion Mexico earns from oil exports and the $17.5 billion in tourism income Mexico received in 2015.

U.S. President Donald Trump has suggested the U.S. might retain some remittances to pay for a wall between the countries, a project Mexico opposes.

It is unclear whether migrants sent more money home because they feared possible future restrictions on the transfers or whether they were taking advantage of the dollar’s higher purchasing power in Mexico. The Mexican peso dropped 19 percent in value against the dollar in 2016."

For twenty years, 1990-2010, the US encouraged Mexico to remain the most corrupt and failed government on earth. By absorbing populations other countries don't want, the US has been "the safety valve for tyrannical and incompetent governments the world over." Everyone knows unwanted populations can always be shipped to the US because of one word: racist. If American taxpayers dared notice what was clearly an invasion if not genocide on the part of both Mexico and the US, they were called "racist" (xenophobic, hateful, etc.) by their own political class and media. This gave permission to the rest of the world to do the same.

Definition of genocide: Rather than immediate destruction, genocide is more often a coordinated plan of different actions to weaken a group's culture, language, national feelings, security, and health, per Raphael Lemkin, 1943 inventor of term genocide: 

"What is Genocide?" GenocideWatch.org, Gregory H. Stanton, Pres. Genocide Watch

"Raphael Lemkin in his masterpiece"Axis Rule in Occupied Europe" (1943) invented the term "genocide" by combining "genos" (race, people) and "cide" (to kill). Lemkin defined genocide as follows:

 
"Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. 

It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the


political and social institutions, of  
culture
language,  
national feelings, 
religion, and the   
economic existence of national groups, and the  
destruction of the   
personal security,    

liberty,  health,  dignity, and even the 

lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.""...
