Number Game on Illegal Immigrants: 11 Million or Still Counting?

The Official Data in US claims it is harder to get into the US and sneaking in being hardest. Strict enforcement practices have pushed a lot of people in more remote areas of their native lands. Yet they all believe their future is in the United States and they can shape the country.

So the question of how many undocumented immigrants are in the US gives the answer 11 million. Illegal migration peaked between 1990 to 2007 as more people came than leaving. So the numbers were growing steadily. Things changed when recession set in and people influx plummeted. It has been said that the objective of illegal immigrants is settling down.

Mostly all unauthorized immigrant population is grouped with families and children. Nearly 21 percent of non-immigrant households are couples with children. But nuclear families In households of illegal immigrants is 47 percent, according to the data.

About 21 percent of illegal immigrants fall below the poverty line. The number of new immigrants declined in recent years. It was impacted by the recession and tougher border practices.

Illegal Immigration Curbs

The Congressional Office CBO propagates that U.S. Senate-passed immigration bill will reduce the flow of illegal immigrants, but the U. S. -Mexico border security costs will shoot up.

The bill seeks to double the number of federal agents along the border and fencing the 700 mile border. This would reduce people entering the United States from Mexico without documentation by one-third to one-half.

It also claims if the bill is enacted deficits will be down by $158 billion from 2014 to 2023. Let us wait as July 10 is the date House Republicans are due to discuss how to proceed with immigration policy.

Yet the immigration bill’s fate is unclear in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. Many House Republicans have concerns on the path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants.
