Illegal Immigration in America: "Out of the Shadows," An ABC News Special Series

With all eyes on Arizona and possible implementation of SB 1070 this week, has launched a 10-part series on illegal immigration and the people at the center of the national immigration debate.

An estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants live discretely in the shadows of our society, across all 50 states. They are landscapers and cleaning ladies, artisans, college students and young parents. They hail from a diverse mix of more than a dozen countries and blend in among the U.S. population, building lives and families while carefully guarding their secret from prying eyes. They are also strongly disapproved of by the general public, polls show.

“Out of the Shadows" speaks to ten illegal immigrants and families, seeking to learn more about who they are, why they came to the U.S. and what their lives here mean for America's future. Follow the series over the next two weeks HERE .
