This fact sheet uses U.S. Census Bureau data to examine the number, characteristics, and socioeconomic status of the 5.1 million children under age 18, both U.S.-citizen and noncitizen, who are living with an unauthorized immigrant parent. It also explores the prevalence of mixed-status families (those with unauthorized immigrant parents and U.S.-citizen children).
