Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) December 6, 2007 — According to a study released earlier this week, immigrants, legal and illegal, account for one in eight U.S. residents, the highest level in the last 80 years. It was also pointed out that the same number was one in 21 in 1970, one in 16 in 1980, and one in 13 in 1990. As more immigrants come into the country, attorneys from Immigration Law Help feels that they can help legally naturalize them.
Numbers show that since 2000, more than 10.3 million immigrants have come to U.S. soil, 5.6 million of which are illegal. Most of these immigrants are assumed to be from Mexico and Central America, with smaller numbers coming from Asia, South America and Europe/Caribbean.
"Despite the great wave of immigration at the turn of the 19th century that caused a growth in immigration, the immigrant population was much less than half what it is today," Attorneys say at Immigration Law Help. "In the later part of the century, changes in immigration law caused the annual level of illegal immigration to rise steadily, from about 300,000 a year in the 1960s to nearly a million today."
