Illegal-Immigrant Population Dropping

    New Report Finds Significant Decline Since Last Summer



    WASHINGTON, July 25 /EMWPresswire/ -- A new analysis by the

Center for Immigration Studies of monthly data collected by the Census

Bureau shows that the illegal immigrant population has declined

significantly between last summer and May of this year. The study is the

first to find quantitative evidence that illegal immigrants are leaving the

country. It also examines the extent to which stepped-up enforcement and

the downturn in the economy account for this trend.



    The report, entitled, "Homeward Bound: Recent Immigration Enforcement

and the Decline in the Illegal Alien Population" is embargoed until

Wednesday, July 30th at 2:30 pm. Advance copies are available to the media.

The study will be available online at http://www.cis.org.



    The Center will formally release the report at a press conference on

Wednesday, July 30th at 2:30 pm in room 1309 of the Longworth House Office

Building. The report's lead author, Dr. Steven Camarota will be joined by

Representatives John Barrow (D-GA), Lamar Smith (R-TX), Tom Feeney (R-FL)

and Heath Shuler (D-NC) to discuss the implications of the study.



    For more information, contact Steven Camarota at (202) 466-8185 or

    The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent research institute

which examines the impact of immigration on the United States.
