Study finds fewer Illegal Mexican Immigrants in U.S.

According to the Orange County Register, the population of Mexicans in the U.S. illegally shrank by about one million from 2007 to 2011 due to fewer job opportunities, heightened border enforcement and a record number of deportations, according to a Pew Hispanic Center analysis of governmental data from both the U.S. and Mexico.  From 2007-2011 the number of Mexicans in the United States illegally dropped from 7 million to 6.1 million.  Fifty eight percent of unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. are Mexican.  Among the undocumented immigrants who leave the United States, an estimated 5% to 35% have been deported, while the rest opt to go back voluntarily – often taking U.S.-born children with them.  For information regarding Immigration Bonds call Penny Bail Bonds anytime at 714-279-9676 or 1-866-736-6977.  You can also visit us at
