On the eve of President Barack Obama's visit to Mexico, recast statistics on Mexican immigrants by the Pew Hispanic Center show that nearly 11 percent of the people born in Mexico live in the United States.

The Pew Hispanic Center, a part of the Washington, D.C.-based Pew Research Center, today released a statistical profile showing that Mexicans now account for 32 percent of all immigrants in America and more than one out of 10 of all persons born in Mexico live in the U.S.

A record 12.7 million Mexican immigrants lived in the U.S. in 2008, a 17-fold increase since 1970, according to the center. Mexicans comprise about six out of 10 or 59 percent of the estimated 11.9 million unauthorized immigrants in the U.S., the center says.
