Where Do ‘Undocumented’ Immigrants Live In The US?

California and Texas are the states hosting the biggest populations of undocumented immigrants in the U.S., according to estimates by Pew Research Center. The two states were supporting undocumented populations of 2 million people and 1.6 million people in 2017 respectively. New York, Florida, Illinois and several more states along the Eastern seaboard also have a large population of undocumented people.

2017 was the first year in which Mexicans were not an absolute majority among undocumented immigrants in the U.S. anymore. In fact, as Statista’s Katharina Buchholz notes, immigrant inflow from the USA’s Southern neighbor has declined significantly since 2007, while more undocumented immigrants entered from Central America, South America and Asia.

Mexicans remain the largest single group among the undocumented population in the U.S., accounting for 47 percent. The fifth largest group of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. are people from Europe and Canada, with an estimated 500,000 persons in the country in 2017.

In between 2007 and 2017, the total number of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. shrank by 14 percent, but they still made up 23 percent of the total foreign-born population in 2017, according to Pew.

The typical undocumented immigrant has lived in the U.S. for 15 years, the researchers concluded from 2017 median numbers.

  1. I just know my real estate taxes on a modest home in Tx are 3 times what my former home in FL cost in taxes.. The former home was a luxury high rise beach apartment on a barrier island on East coast of FL.. Why is that??? At least 20% of public school children in Tx are illegal aliens.. We have to build new schools, buy buses, hire special teachers and all that goes into public education.. These illegals are told about welfare where all in the family get about 700 bucks each per month–dad .works under the table— add all the other freebies to the illegals and it is a bundle so much coming into their greedy hands that they then send this welfare money to their home country (remittances) and it will not be spent here. They laugh at us for being– stupid gringos. They are like cow birds who lay their eggs in another bird’s nest for the other industrious bird to feed and raise. It is THEFT on the U.S. taxpayer, Thanks Demomarxists for NOT doing your job

    1. Same here in Kentucky. They brag about buying Social security numbers in St Louis Missouri for $250 welfare and tax fraud. Free healthcare in the hospital ER so they don’t buy insurance. The US treasury paid out over 1 billion dollars in checks to deceased US citizens last year because illegals are using these social security numbers. IRS knows about it and doesn’t care because some of them have jobs and pay income taxes. They are voting too when they get drivers licenses illegally with forged papers. AND THEY BRAG!! Brag about all the money they wore to Mexico to bring family here illegally. AND THEY BRAG!!

      1. Carol C., with all the graft and corruption that abounds, do you think a foolproof voter card could be created?

      1. We should not think about what taxes they do or do not pay
        What we should be upset about is OUR TAX dollars are paying for their
        housing, their medical expenses. our school taxes when the send to school,
        welfare, food stamps, unemployment, or disability. these are all our tax
        dollars we are paying for every single illegal and in one article I read the
        dollar amount we pay is around 56,000, now that is our money used to pay
        for these illegals.

    1. How do you know they are paying taxes the only tax they pay is when they make a purchase that is the reason we should keep paying tax on food they can’t get by that now what’s your problem?!!!

  2. The title of this article is a massive misnomer as it makes ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS into something that
    doesn’t exist. ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS are not and can’t ever be undocumented immigrants because undocumented immigrants are illegals.

  3. Treason is a badge of honor for the Godless NAZI Commie liberal Racist Muslim Demoncrat Party & RINOs! The party of hate, hypocrisy, lies, deception,Fake News(Russian Collusion & Jussie M hoax)the list is endless!And the clueless minions that follow them!

  4. The Leftist-RINO lies all follow the same pattern of insanity & idiocy. Here”s one example:

    Climate change, or whatever Marxist name it is now called, is a HOAX, a lie. CO2 is needed by all plants & is now at historically low levels. Plants are suffering from this low CO2 level. The result is increasing desertification & trees with thin foliage & poor resistance to fungus mold & insects. Thus gypsy moth devestation of trees, & fugus-mold killing trees.

  5. This is disgusting. Why would any American be happy with these statistics? And, why would any common sense voter ever vote for those who have allowed this to happen and continue to turn a blind eye on this scheme by the left to do such a thing hoping that they can make these liberal votes in the future. I am outraged that the left realizes this crisis and yet continues to do absolutely nothing to stop it. They are the reason this map has the dominate colors of red, orange and yellow more than grey. Time to get rid of the swamp. Now.

  6. Hundreds of thousands of illegal Chinese are living in the U.S. on green cards because China won’t take them back. The illegals destroy their ID when they cross the border because they know they cannot be deported without Chinese ID. How many of these illegal Chinese are here to spy and steal U.S. secrets??? Trump should include deporting illegal Chinese back to China in his trade negotiations with China!!
    In W.TX, we are surrounded by Spanish-speaking foreigners working in the booming oil fields and construction. If ICE wants to apprehend a lot of illegal aliens next week….they only need to look in the W.TX oil fields!!!
    Billions of dollars of bilingual education in schools increases every year and does not benefit “all” children. Is this another case of segregation in our schools???
