Nearly half of all the illegal aliens now living in the United States entered the country legally through a port of entry such as an airport or a border crossing point where they were subject to inspection by immigration officials, according to new estimates from the Pew Hispanic Center.
The Department of Homeland Security estimates for VWP countries, the FY 2015 Suspected In-Country overstay rate is 0.65 percent of the 20,974,390 expected departures. That works out to about 136,000 illegal aliens but they (Homeland Security) don’t really know how accurate that number is.
