Immigration Declines to Lowest Level in Over a Decade

New data analysis by the Pew Research Center shows the number of unauthorized immigrants in the US at its lowest in over a decade. The detailed article appeared on November 27th, 2018 on Pew Research Center Hispanic Trends

“There were 10.7 million unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. in 2016, down from a peak of 12.2 million in 2007” – the analysis shows.

  • The sharp drop was mainly due to a sharp decline in the number of new unauthorized immigrants, especially Mexicans, coming into the country.
  • You can read the in-depth study HERE. Below are a few highlights that are worth noticing:
  • More than a million unauthorized immigrants have temporary protection from deportation
  • A rising share of unauthorized immigrants arrive legally, but overstay visas
  • Number of recent arrivals declines
  • Border apprehensions of Mexicans decline, but rise for Central Americans
  • About 5 million U.S.-born children live with unauthorized immigrant parents
