Unauthorized Immigrants in US – Lower in 2016 than at any time since 2004

The number of unauthorized immigrants living in the United States was lower in 2016 than at any time since 2004. This decline is due mainly to a large drop in the number of new unauthorized immigrants, especially Mexicans, coming into the country. The origin countries of unauthorized immigrants also shifted during that time, with the number from Mexico declining and the number rising from only one other region, Central America, according to the latest Pew Research Center estimates.

Here are five facts about the unauthorized immigrant population in the U.S.

1 – There were 10.7 million unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. in 2016, representing 3.3% of the total U.S. population that year.

2 – The number of Mexican unauthorized immigrants declined since 2007, but the total from other nations changed little.

3 – The U.S. civilian workforce includes 7.8 million unauthorized immigrants, representing a decline since 2007

4 – Six states account for 58% of unauthorized immigrants: California, Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey and Illinois.

5 – A rising share of unauthorized immigrants have lived in the U.S. for more than a decade.
