A USC study says that about one in 10 adults in Los Angeles County is an immigrant who crossed the border illegally or overstayed a visa. Half have been in the United States for more than a decade, the Los Angeles Times reports. In some parts of Koreatown and South Los Angeles, as many as one in three adult residents is here illegally.
