If you bothered to read the article, it said these are nationwide numbers and then talked about several key locations in the US.  So, it doesn't talk about one location.  I have no idea where why you think they were talking about a "certain location".

Please provide a link where you got your information.  I would like tocompare notes/articles.

LOL a certain location doesnt fit the full numbers of the whole country. Try visiting the stats on the Government Immigration instead to get the correct numbers.

Quoting GotSomeKids:

Associated Press--Article Dated Dec 6, 2012  Illegal Immigration Drops (second paragraph)

Edit:  That would be the Chicago Sun-Times

BTW, that same article says illegal immigration is at 28%, not 80%.  This is for all immigrants.  But, even if you talk just Mexican/Hispanics, that statistic is only 55%.  Still not the 80% you quoted.

The article was written based on facts studied by demographers via the Pew Research Center and the Census Bureau who have very reliable information.

Still haven't answered my question.

according to most press and websites they claim their stuff are facts, most are not even close to facts. But believe whatever you want.

Studies are always biased, because the people and companies who fund them generally pay better when the "facts" favor their desired outcome.

Very true.  However, it doesn't necessarily make said information incorrect.  It is no secret that illegal immigration is way down.  This in turn changes the the amount of illegal immigration that exists.  The number presented may not be exact, but I believe they are very close.  These numbers were looked at by more than just the quoted articles as well.

Hm... seeing as how the census bureau is run by the government and the Pew Research Center has bases in Washington DC, I don't find the statistics to be unbiased, and therefore they cannot be deemed "credible" by themselves.  That is my personal opinion, and if you believe those statistics, have at it.
