USA Today – March 11, 2017
Of the estimated 11.1 million immigrants living illegally in the United States, nearly 4 million have children in the United States. A study of child population from 2009-13 from the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan think tank, states that more than 168,000 children in New Jersey have parents who are unauthorized immigrants – 9% of the total child population in the state.
