Overall Number of U.S. Unauthorized Immigrants Holds Steady Since 2009. Pew Research Center. Jeffrey S. Passel and D’Vera Cohn. September 20, 2016.
The U.S. unauthorized immigrant population,11.1 million in 2014, has stabilized since the end of the Great Recession, as the number from Mexico declined but the total from other regions of the world increased, according to the estimates based on government data. Among world regions, the number of unauthorized immigrants from Asia, Central America and sub-Saharan Africa rose between 2009 and 2014. The number from Mexico has steadily declined since 2007, the first year of the Great Recession, but Mexicans remain more than half (52%) of U.S. unauthorized immigrants.
