US visa overstaying has become a trend 

“Meanwhile, executive director of the Center for Migration Studies, Donald Kerwin, said: “It is apparent from our research that persons who overstay their US visa add to the undocumented population at a higher rate than illegal border crossers. This is not a blip, but a trend which has become the norm.”

“As the numbers in our report indicate, construction of hundreds of more miles of border wall would not address the challenge of irregular migration into our country… far from it,” Kerwin added”.
