Illegal Immigration Figures in Maine

By    |   Monday, 05 Oct 2015 09:23 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 Maine.

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 Maine remained relatively static through that period given that the sample size of illegal immigration in Maine is so small.

Data from the Pew Research Center found in 2012 that illegal immigration in Maine:
  • Was estimated at fewer than 1,000 illegal residents
  • Made up 0.2 percent of the Maine's total population
  • Accounted for 6 percent of all immigrants in Maine
  • Was responsible for 0.2 percent — children born to parents who were unauthorized residents — of all K-12 students
  • Comprised 0.3 percent of the state's workforce
  • Was too insignificant to determine percentages of illegal residents that hailed from any particular countries of origin
