Fwd.us released new data today that estimates that about 10.6 million U.S. citizens live with an undocumented immigrant. Additionally, these estimates show that more than 22 million people in the U.S. live in mixed-status households, where at least one undocumented person lives with U.S. citizens, green card holders, or other lawful temporary immigrants. This means more than 1 in 20 people in the U.S. lives in a mixed-status household. Fwd.us claims that "the new data shows the urgent need for Congress to establish a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants to provide them and their loved ones with much-needed certainty and stability."
