Illegal Immigration Figures in Kansas

By    |   Tuesday, 06 Oct 2015 01:10 PM

While illegal immigration has been a frequent subject of national debate, it's worth taking a look how each state is impacted individually by illegal immigration. Here's a behind-the-numbers look at how illegal immigration has impacted Kansas.

According to research into U.S. census data by the Pew Research Center
, 14 states saw a dip in illegal immigrant populations from 2009 to 2012. In 2012, those illegal immigrants numbered about 3.5 percent of the total U.S. population — 11. 2 million — of close to 316 million people, Pew noted. Additionally, those illegals marked 26 percent of the 42.5 million U.S. residents who were foreign-born.

Figures from Kansas remained relatively static through that period as no significant changes were recorded.

Data from the Pew Research Center found in 2012
that illegal immigration in Kansas:
  • Was estimated at 75,000 illegal residents
  • Made up 2.6 percent of the Kansas's total population
  • Accounted for 38 percent of all immigrants in Kansas
  • Was responsible for 7 percent — children born to parents who were unauthorized residents — of all K-12 students
  • Comprised 3.5 percent of the state's workforce
  • Was mostly of Mexican descent: 75 percent of those illegal residents in Kansas originated from Mexico
