Illegal immigrant numbers dropped significantly in the US last year, reports the LA Times, but there are disputes on how to interpret the numbers. "Mirroring a nationwide trend, California’s illegal-immigrant population dropped to 2.6 million, from 2.8 million during this same period, according to the report, which is based on census data. The only state to see its number of undocumented residents go up during this time was Georgia, which went from 460,000 to 480,000." [LA Times]
