Illegal Immigration Figures in Louisiana

By    |   Tuesday, 06 October 2015 12:43 PM EDT

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 Louisiana.

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 Louisiana 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 Louisiana:
  • Was estimated at 55,000 illegal residents
  • Made up 1.2 percent of the Louisiana's total population
  • Accounted for 31 percent of all immigrants in Louisiana
  • Was responsible for 1.7 percent — children born to parents who were unauthorized residents — of all K-12 students
  • Comprised 1.8 percent of the state's workforce
  • Was populated by a smaller percentage of illegal residents that originated from Mexico than neighboring states: 29 percent of illegal immigrants in Louisiana were of Mexican descent
