Phoenix area home to 250K undocumented immigrants, No. 10 in nation

PHOENIX — Phoenix is among the top metropolitan areas in the nation that undocumented immigrants call home, according to a Pew Research Center study.

Approximately 250,000 unauthorized immigrants live in the Phoenix area, accounting for 2.2 percent of all undocumented immigrants nationwide. The area was ranked No. 10 in the nation, according to estimates based off of the 2014 Census Bureau.

The unauthorized immigrant population is highly concentrated, Pew Research Center found. More than 6.8 million, or 61 percent, of the 11.1 million undocumented immigrants nationwide reside in 20 metropolitan areas, a quarter of which are in California.

The five metropolitan areas that house the most undocumented immigrants — New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas and Miami — dwarfed Phoenix in comparison. The New York metro area housed more than 1.1 million undocumented immigrants, while Los Angeles came in second with about 1 million.

The metropolitan areas that housed the fewest number of undocumented immigrants included Orlando, Florida; and Austin, Texas; which each were home to around 100,000 immigrants.

The center's analysis also found that 65 percent of the nation's legal immigrants, including naturalized citizens and non-citizens, also live in those metropolitan areas.

Preventing illegal immigration and deporting those who are here illegally has been a major priority for the new administration under President Donald Trump.

Trump signed an executive order to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in January. The wall is set to be funded by taxpayers and could cost upwards of $20 billion, according to a U.S. Department of Homeland Security internal report.

But lawmakers have already taken steps to begin the removal of illegal immigrants.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials arrested and later deported Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, a mother of two who has lived in Arizona since she was 14, on Thursday after a routine immigration check-in.

Trump also signed an executive order last month to halt travelers and refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. The order has been challenged in court several times, most recently Thursday, when federal appellate judges ruled that a block ban must remain.

The Security Cabinet reported that on Thursday, alleged offender Juan Francisco Patrón Sánchez, aka H2 or El Chico, head of the Beltrán Leyva criminal group in Nayarit and the south of Sinaloa, was killed in a clash with elements of the Armed Forces in The city of Nayarit.

During the joint operation between elements of the Navy and the Mexican Army, made in the colony Lindavista, Tepic, Nayarit, neighbors of the Rio Missisippi street, pointed out that dozens of federal troops are stationed at the corners and from a helicopter gunship opened fire on a house, where Patron Sanchez was allegedly shot down .

On September 30, 2011, authorities indicated that among the dead of a confrontation could be found the body of Patron Sanchez, days later that information was denied.

In that context, in less than seven hours, five men were killed last Wednesday in coordinated actions in four municipalities of Nayarit by the criminal organization La Limpia Mazatleca, which did the executions and left messages with their victims.

Police authorities reported that the former was murdered in the main square of the municipality of Ruiz; The second was beheaded at the entrance of Santiago Ixcuintla; Two more were shot dead on the malecon of Tuxpan, and at night another one was killed in Tecuala.

In Nayarit there was not a violent event of this magnitude nearly five years ago. The latest happened on February 28, 2012, when state police killed Alberto Marquez Rosales, El 06, who was responsible for murdering police and extorting fishermen from Agua Milpa and Pasaje México.

Today in a confrontation between criminals and Federal Forces Juan Francisco N. was shot down, with seven more accomplices.
