Documented-Undocumented Immigrants – Brief Explanation
The surge of illegal border crossings that has taken place since President Joe Biden took office in late January 2021 has sparked a gigantic debate regarding the US immigration system, especially when it comes to massive irregular migration.
Interestingly, the attention of the American public and the national news network is mainly focused on the numbers of irregular migration when it comes to foreigners who cross the borders without prior authorization, but, is it really the only factor increasing the number of undocumented immigrants in the US?
In one of our most recent articles, we talked about official figures from the Center for Migration Studies, which reveal that, of more than 10 million immigrants currently residing in the country undocumented, two-thirds are people who entered the country with a legal permit or visa, that is, approximately 6.7 million.
Adding to that, the Center for Migration Studies reveals that around 200,000 to 400,000 people remained in the US annually after their visa or permit expired between 2000 and 2016. Other than that, according to figures from the DHS (Department of Homeland Security), in 2019, 676,422 people overstayed their visas.
This means that, despite opposition groups trying to blame the Biden administration for the increase in irregular migration, the reality is that there are many other factors that drive certain foreigners to stay in the US without legal permits, which is undoubtedly an imminent risk and could definitely affect their future.
