La Estrella de Tucson, Mariana Alvarado Posted: Dec 20, 2009

Fewer Mexican families residing in the United States are traveling back to their home country for Christmas season, reports the Spanish weekly, La Estrella de Tucson. Mexican authorities said part of the reason is economics. In 2006, over 1 million Mexicans visited Mexico for the holiday season. This year, the number will reach 850,000, according to estimates from the Programa Paisano, a governmental agency that provides services for Mexican travelers. A Pew Hispanic Center survey of Latinos showed that many of them are adjusting their financial habits. According to the center, 67 percent plan to spend less during this holiday season.
