U.S. Has Fewest Unauthorized Immigrants in a Decade

10.7 million

“The number of unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. fell to its lowest level in more than a decade,” according to new Pew Research Center estimates based on 2016 government data. “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 decline is due almost entirely to a sharp decrease in the number of Mexicans entering the country without authorization.”
