Just the Facts: Undocumented Immigrants
The Public Policy Institute of California has put together some handy facts on immigration. One critical fact -- About one in ten workers in California is an undocumented immigrant. California’s labor force includes about 1.85 million undocumented immigrants—the second-highest statewide share of undocumented workers (9.4%) in the nation, after Nevada (10.2%). Undocumented immigrants work disproportionately in the farming, construction, production, services, and transportation/materials moving industries.
