The number of people immigrating to the United States, both legally and illegally, has slowed dramatically.
From 2000 to 2004, about 800,000 illegal immigrants a year entered the country, according to a Pew Hispanic Center study. Since then, the average has dropped to about 500,000 a year.
Main reasons: increased enforcement of immigration laws coupled with the sputtering U.S. economy.
