Donald Trump is about to win his bet. The number of illegal immigrants in the United States is at its lowest since 2004. That’s what the Pew Research Institute reveals.
The number of undocumented foreigners has fallen considerably in the United States. According to a study conducted by the Pew Research Institute, illegal immigrants increased to 10, 7 million individuals. A situation that appears as a small victory for US President Donald Trump. The tenant of the White House had shown his willingness to reduce the number of illegal immigrants in the country during the 2016 presidential campaign.
To get there, Hillary Clinton’s opponent at the time promised to build a wall on the American border with Mexico.
For the moment, the wall has not yet risen, but the promises of the American president already seem to have their effect.
The number of immigrants has fallen to 10.7 million people. In 2007, this figure was 12.2 million. The study, which is based on US government statistics in 2016, indicates that this is the lowest level since 2004.
“Yet, the clandestine population from Central America has increased by 375,000 between 2007 and 2016. Other important information: two-thirds of adults in an irregular situation have settled in the United States for more than 10 years. The figure has risen sharply since 2007 (41%), “reports the website Sputniknews.
“Mexico should send the migrants home, many of them are cold-blooded criminals. Do it by plane, not bus, as you want but they will not come to the United States. We will definitely close the border if necessary. Congress must finance the wall! ”
For Donald Trump, who described the mass arrival of migrants from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador as “invasion”, many criminals are among them. This has been confirmed by the Department of Homeland Security, which states that “more than 600 known criminals and gang members” have been identified in recent weeks in the “caravan” of migrants.
