Here are the States with the Largest Illegal Alien Populations in America

Published

According to figures from the Pew Research Center, California and Texas are the states with the largest illegal alien populations in the country. In 2017, California had 2 million illegal aliens, while Texas had 1.6 million.

States like New York, Florida, Illinois, and others along the Eastern seaboard also have large illegal populations. 2017 was the first year where Mexicans did not make up an absolute majority of illegals living in America anymore.

Statista’s Katharina Buchholz points out that immigration from Mexico specifically has decreased substantially, while more illegals came from Central America, South America, and Asia.

Mexicans are still the largest single group among illegal aliens in America, making up 47 percent of the illegal population in America. The fifth largest group of illegals in America come from Canada and Europe, with an estimated 500,000 people in the country in 2017. From between 2007 and 2017, the number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. dropped by 14 percent, but they still make up 23 percent of the overall foreign-born population in 2017, according to Pew’s research.

The average illegal immigrant has lived in America for 15 years.

The concentration of illegals in Texas could potentially have strong electoral implications given demographic data pointing to foreign-born groups as reliable voters for the Democratic Party. At the very least, any massive push for a pathway to citizenship could have a major impact in changing the political landscape in the U.S.

For that reason, immigration remains a major issue for conservative voters going into the 2020 elections.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
