New York City has the highest total (unsurprising since it's the largest). NYC is above average, but most Southwest, California and Florida metros are higher. Highest rate is Yuma, Arizona.

New York City has a below average % of immigrants that are illegal; it's % of illegals are high because it has a high immigration %
