    During the most recent presidential election, Trump suggested that the number of undocumented immigrants could exceed 30 million. However, new studies put the number much lower and show a significant decline over the past decade.

    These studies were published by The Pew Research on Tuesday, November 27, 2018. The number of undocumented immigrants went from 12.2 million in 2007 to 10.7 million in 2016. D’Vera Cohn, the senior writer at The Pew Research stated, “it wasn’t just that the number declined, but also who these unauthorized immigrants are had changed since 2007.” D’Vera Cohn explains that the identities of the immigrants have changed along with the immigration number dropping. Estimates derived figures published by sources such as the Census Bureau accounts for the foreign-born people living in the United States.

    In 2016, there were a reported 1.5 million fewer illegal Mexicans in the U.S than there were in 2007. Although they still make up a majority of the illegal immigrants, migration from Mexico has slowed. On average, there were 715,000 yearly unauthorized arrivals in 2002-2007 verses in 2011-2016 where there were an average 386,000 unauthorized arrivals. That’s a 46 percent decline.

    It seems Donald Trump is just throwing out wild accusations to put false information into the minds of his followers. The immigration decline is significant and should not go unnoticed any longer.
