DHS Report: Estimates of the Unauthorized Immigrant Population Residing in the United States: January 2009

Immigration Reform: DHS DataAn essential component of the dialogue regarding immigration reform is to collect as much information as possible.

The DHS has published the following document entitled:  “Estimates of the Unauthorized Immigrant Population Residing in the United States: January 2009” written by MICHAEL HOEFER, NANCY RYTINA, AND BRYAN C. BAKER

The summary notes:

“In summary, DHS estimates that the unauthorized immigrant population living in the United States decreased to 10.8 million in January 2009 from 11.6 million in January 2008. Between 2000 and 2009, the unauthorized population grew by 27 percent. Of all unauthorized immigrants living in the United States in 2009, 63 percent entered before 2000, and 62 percent were from Mexico.”

With a notation on the resulting trends:

“Between January 2008 and January 2009, the number of unauthorized immigrants living in the United States decreased seven percent from 11.6 million to 10.8 million (see Figure 1). Between 2000 and 2007, the unauthorized population grew by 3.3 million from 8.5 million to 11.8 million. The number of unauthorized residents declined by 1.0 million between 2007 and 2009, coincident with the U.S. economic downturn. The overall annual average increase in the unauthorized population during the 2000-2009 period was 250,000.”

State-by-State numbers are outlined in the paper as follows:

“California remained the leading state of residence of the unauthorized immigrant population in 2009, with 2.6 million (see Table 4 and Appendix 2). The next leading state, Texas, had 1.7 million unauthorized residents, followed by Florida with 720,000,

New York with 550,000, and Illinois with 540,000. California’s share of the national total was 24 percent in 2009 compared to 30 percent in 2000. The greatest percentage increases in the unauthorized population between 2000 and 2009 occurred in Georgia (115 percent), Nevada (55 percent), and Texas (54 percent).”
