Obama's Immigration Plan Will Affect These K-12 Students With Undocumented Parents

President Barack Obama will announce on Thursday night his plan for executive action on

immigration, which is expected to grant deportation relief to millions of undocumented

immigrants. Obama's proposal could impact not only the estimated 11.2 million undocumented

immigrants living in the U.S., but also their young children, according to new data from Pew

Research Center.

On Tuesday, Pew's Hispanic Trends Project released a report outlining the numbers of

undocumented immigrants living in the U.S as of 2012. The report estimates that the nation's

population of unauthorized immigrants has dropped in recent years, down from 12.2 million in

2007 to 11.2 million in 2012.

The report also looked at the children of these immigrants. While unauthorized immigrants

accounted for an estimated 3.5 percent of the population in the United States in 2012, the

report noted that "children with at least one unauthorized immigrant parent accounted for

6.9 [percent] of U.S. students in kindergarten through 12th grade." Of these children, most

were born in the U.S., which makes them American citizens.
