Experts: Uninspected Areas are Main Point of Illegal Immigration

MIAMI (AP) - Experts say people who overstay their visas are surpassing uninspected entries as the main source of illegal immigration.

The national discussion on immigration focuses on securing the United States-Mexico border with a multi-billion dollar wall. But demographers estimate that two-thirds of foreigners who arrived in 2013 and are now in the country illegally actually flew or sailed to the country and were admitted with valid travel documents.

Much of what President Donald Trump says about immigration enforcement centers on those who cross on land. 

His executive orders also say little about visa overstays, in part because the U.S. government can't confirm the total number of travelers who remain in the country past the authorized stay limit.
