Immigration is a hotly contested issue in the United States. Fox News reporters bring you the latest on the border crisis, green card news, migrant caravans and amnesty legislation in Congress.

Here are some key immigration facts:

  • The U.S. issues approximately 140,000 employment-based green cards every year.

  • America’s foreign-born population set a new record at 44.8 million people in 2018, according to Pew Research Center.

  • Illegal immigration primarily occurs at the U.S.’s southern border with Mexico, which border patrol agents are tasked with protecting.

  • The number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. is estimated to be at least 11 million.

  • The 2021 border crisis saw a surge in migrant encounters along the southern border.

  • Migrant deportations are handled by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which falls under the Department of Homeland Security.
