Pew: U.S. Illegal Immigrant Population Hits Lowest Level in a Decade

ㅤ"Pew found that there has been a ‘sharp decrease in the number of Mexicans entering the country without authorization,’ although around half of illegal immigrants in the U.S. — 5.4 million — are Mexican. The number of unauthorized Mexican immigrants living in the U.S. has declined by 1.5 million since 2007.
ㅤCentral America, on the other hand, is the only region accounting for more U.S. unauthorized immigrants in 2016 than in 2007, Pew said.
ㅤBetween 2007 and 2016, the number of unauthorized immigrants from Central America increased by 375,000, and the 1.85 million illegal immigrants from Central America in 2016 came chiefly from three countries: El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
ㅤPew attributed the decline in the total number of unauthorized immigrants principally to ‘a very large drop in the number of new unauthorized immigrants, especially Mexicans, coming into the country.’
ㅤAs the number of unauthorized immigrant workers has fallen, so has their share of the total U.S. workforce over the same period, Pew found.’"
