Illegal Immigration has been a problem in United States for the past few years. Each year around 500,000 immigrants come into America illegally. Many try sneaking across the border, others are smuggled into the U.S. via shipping containers, in vehicles (automobile & trucks) crossing the border at non-authorized locations. While some get caught, others quickly spread throughout the U.S. as far as Maine and New Hampshire.
Since the 1960s till these present-day illegals continue to pour into the country at rapid numbers. The Population in 2016, is estimated to be around 11.4 million.

These 12 states include: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Vermont, and Washington. The populace of Illegals in those states are greater. With these Illegals obtaining a driver’s license which allows them to vote in some states such as California can help dictate the outcome of city, state, and federal election.
