525,000 is the number of illegal immigrants that something called the Pew Hispanic Center has come up with.
4.1% of the state’s population.
That’s up from 500,000 in 2007 and up from 200,000 in 1990.
The size of the average congressional district in the next ten years will be 646,952, so Illinois might have lost two seats if it were not for our undocumented brethren.
“The number of children born to at least one unauthorized-immigrant parent in 2009 was 350,000 and they made up 8% of all U.S. births, essentially the same as a year earlier,” the study reports.
