1 in 10 Workers in Ariz. Are Here Illegally
The Pew Hispanic Center says the new number is based on U.S. Census data and their own surveys.
Steven Camarota, an immigration critic with the Center for Immigration Studies, says the Arizona figure contrasts to the national picture.
“Nationally, we think that about 5 percent of workers in the country are illegal immigrants.”
It’s important to note that both anti-illegal immigration critics and immigration reform supporters consider Pew a relaible source.
