The Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) has estimated that on average 11.46 million people were without jobs, per month in 2013. This is markedly less than the Pew Research Center’s latest estimate to the total illegal immigrant population in the United States, of 11.7 million, as of March 2012.
The report, “Population Decline of Unauthorized Immigrants Stalls, May Have Reversed,” stated that the illegal alien population grew steadily from 1990 to 2007.
