One in Two Legal Immigrants in California Was Once Illegal

Korea Daily, Posted: Jun 16, 2008

Citing a report release by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC), Korea Daily reports that immigrants who recently became legal permanent residents, lived illegally for some time in the United States before receiving green cards. The trend is strongest in California. One in two surveyed said they entered the country illegally and violated the terms of their visas by overstaying a tourist visa, or working when they were not authorized. Nationwide, prior to becoming legal residents, about four in ten first lived in the country illegally. The PPIC report is based on a representative survey of immigrants who became legal permanent residents in the United States in 2003.
