Illegal Immigration in U.S. Crashed Last Year!

Reports from U.S. Department of Homeland Security say that illegal migration has fallen by 1 million people in 2 years; however, private researchers are questioning the reality of this fall. Statistics represent that January 2009 marked 10.8 million illegal immigrants as compared to almost 12 millions in the year 2007, which represents a fall of more that 1 million illegal overseas migrants.

Jeffrey Passel, a demographer with the nonpartisan Pew Hispanic Center, elaborated that it is believable that the number of undocumented applicants and illegal immigrants have fallen by a huge margin, but the way the measuring has been done, Jeffrey said that it has been a little overstated.

Passel went on to say that the U.S. Census Bureau has made certain amendments with the way it has been measuring the statistics since the last two years. Therefore, there are chances that the mends might have distorted the results in a huge manner.

Others believe that no matter what the size of the population is, it is certainly true that illegal immigration has dropped by a huge extend, especially during the phase of recession. Also, another group believes that the fall might be a result that more illegal immigrants are leaving the premises, and not because fewer illegal immigrants are coming.

Steve Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies has confirmed that illegal immigration in the U.S. has plummeted for sure. The main reason behind this is that a lot more people are going home as compared to the ones intending to come to the U.S.

According to stats, a majority of undocumented applicants come from Latin America, followed by Mexico and El Salvador. Now these figures would certainly awake Obama as far his Immigration Reform is concerned.
