Koreans Among Top Illegal Residents in U.S.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security estimates the number of illegal Korean residents in the U.S. is around 250,000, the Korean Embassy in the U.S. said Tuesday.
The embassy said in an audit for the National Assembly that Korea ranks seventh on the list of illegal residents in the U.S., which includes Mexico, Honduras and the Philippines at the top.

According to the embassy, the annual household income for Korean-Americans is US$62,000 on average, with 50 percent of them college graduates. But although Korean-Americans have succeeded in building a solid financial foundation, they lag other Asian ethnic groups in political presence, the embassy said.

The number of students who chose Korean as a foreign language in the scholastic aptitude test (SAT) has increased from 2,128 in 1999 to 4,176 this year, the embassy said. The language was first adopted for the test in 1997.
