Mexican Consul Estimates Number of Mexicans Illegally Residing in Arkansas

ARRA News Service - According to Andres Chao Mexican consul estimate, there may be nearly as many Mexican nationals in the state of Arkansas as there are people in within the city limits of Little Rock. Little Rock, the capital and the most populous city in Arkansas, was estimated at 184,422 in 2005. Current 2007 estimates identify 187,452. The Mexican consul also estimated that the actual number of illegal Mexican aliens at 80,000. The total estimated number of illegal aliens in Arkansas from other European, Asian, Central American and South American countries is not estimated in this post. But one can conclude with the surrounding states implementing stronger laws to address illegal immigration, Arkansas will continue to see a significant increasein illegal aliens until Arkansas addresses this serious problem.

Arkansas Online reports that: "In 2006, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that Arkansas had 104,920 Mexicans out of a Hispanic population of 138,283. Considering the thousands of uncounted illegal aliens, Andres Chao, Mexican consul in Little Rock, estimates the actual number of Mexicans is closer to 185,000" "In April 2007, the Mexican government formally opened its 47th consulate in the United States in Little Rock, bringing the first — and still only — foreign consulate to the state . . . Mexico’s is the largest consular network operated by any country inside another. . . . In its first year and a half, the consulate issued almost 30,000 documents to Mexicans . . . The consulate . . . reports that the greatest demand is for the identification card, called matricula consular in Spanish. . . . The card represents more than half of all documents issued.
