According to a new study published on Thursday by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center, an estimated 11.1 million illegal immigrants reside in the United States, making up about 3.5 percent of our total population. The study also looked at where the illegals tend to live, finding metropolitan and typically Democrat-run cities to be the hotspots.
Pew found a whopping 2.5 million illegals residing in the densely populated cities of Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. In total, about 62 percent of all illegal immigrants are living across just 20 metropolitan areas, many of which have "sanctuary" polices implemented to protect illegals from deportation, even if they perpetrate crimes.
As noted by Fox News, when looking at immigrant communities nationwide, a stunning 26 percent were found to be lacking legal status. Some communities, like those in Phoenix, Houston, Dallas and Denver, found an even higher percentage of illegals: 37 percent.Read the rest of the story HERE.
