MOST Illegal Immigrants FLY Into America!
Updated: May 30, 2019
Secondly, the LARGE MAJORITY of undocumented immigrants don’t come from across the Mexican border, they come from planes and boats.
In fact, since 2008, more undocumented immigrants have arrived here by visa overstays than by the Mexican border, a pattern that has only increased over the years.
Now if you strictly use government data, according to the Department of Homeland Security, in 2016 and 2017, the percentage of visa overstays vs border crossings was roughly 90 to 10%.
However I tried to confirm those numbers with the non-partisan Center for Migration Studies (CMS). And after speaking with Robert Warren, one of the foremost experts on this topic, he said that the DHS numbers were inflated, due to a number of complex factors, and thus a more accurate comparison would be roughly 67% (or 2/3rds) of undocumented immigrants are from visa overstays.
Which is still the largely majority! And keep in mind, this can always shift even more. If it becomes significantly harder to get across the border, because perhaps Trump starts launching a rabid supporter at anyone who comes within 5 feet, than refugees will likely gravitate towards getting across by planes, trains, or automobiles.
