Barcelona --- A rescue ship carrying 60 migrants arrived Wednesday in a Spanish port after being refused entry by Italy and Malta, the second time in a month that a humanitarian group has been forced to travel for days to unload people rescued in the central Mediterranean.

Number of unauthorized immigrants in U.S. plunges to lowest level

LOS ANGELES -- A recent report from the Pew Research Center found that the number of unauthorized immigrants in the United States has fallen to the lowest level in more than a decade, refuting President Trump's claim that the Central American migrant caravans are part of an "invasion." Pew cited the sudden drop "entirely to a sharp decline in the number of Mexicans entering the country without authorization." The study --- which used 2016 federal data --- found that there were 10.7 million unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. that year, compared with the 12.2 million figure in 2007. The 2016 sum is the country's lowest since 2004. Pew found that the decline of unauthor...Keep on reading: Number of unauthorized immigrants in U.S. plunges to lowest level.....»»
