EDITOR, Daily News:

In my Point of View op-ed, “$5.7 billion can be spent in many ways,” published in the Jan. 26-27, 2019, edition of the Ketchikan Daily News, I mistakenly wrote that Mexico is no longer the largest source country of unlawful immigrants to the United States. Indeed it remains the largest, but as a percentage of the total from all countries of the world its impact has been shrinking.

Using census and Department of Homeland Security data, the PEW Research Center estimates that 11.7 million illegal immigrants resided in the U.S. in 2016; 5.4 million, or just slightly more than half, were from Mexico. Their study, “U.S. Unauthorized Immigrant Total Dips to Lowest Level in a Decade,” was released on 11-27-18.

I apologize for the error.
