Illegal Immigrants Worries US Immigration Authorities

26 Mar 2012


Immigration News

Nearly about 240,000 Indian immigrants are illegally staying in the US. On the whole, there are about 11.5 million foreigners who happen to be living in the United States, without any valid documents. These statistics are based on latest figures available through official sources.

The number of Indians entering in clandestine manner has doubled between 2000 and 2011, according to the US Department of Homeland Security. During this period the number of foreign immigrants increased 8.46 million to 11.51 million.

India with its 240,000 illegal immigrants places itself in the seventh position in the list of immigrants with Mexico having 6.8 million which is followed by El Salvador (660,000), Guatemala ((520,000) ND Honduras (380,000). China is fifth in the list but among the Asian countries it is on the top, with about 280 million illegal immigrants from Korea, Ecuador (210,000) as well as Vietnam (170,000).  Korea has about 230,000 illegal immigrants, Equador (210,000) and Vietnam (170,000).

The Cubans have not been included in this list as they are either paroled or admitted into the country and after about a year they can apply for permanent residency that is LPR status.

It is interesting to note that after 11.5 unauthorized immigrants in 2011, nearly 1.6 million (14%) had actually entered the US on January 1st 2005 or perhaps later. There was considerable increase during 2000-2004, nearly about 3.3 million or about 29 per cent and in 1995-1999 about 3.0 million or 26%.
