The article goes on to state the following:
The report also stated that more than 92,000 Canadians overstayed their visas, as did more than 47,000 Mexicans. However, those figures do not include land crossings, meaning the numbers could be higher.
The highest percentage of travelers who overstayed their visas were those in the student or exchange visitor visa programs. About 4.15 percent of the more than 1.6 million people student or exchange visitors who were supposed to leave the U.S. in 2017 stayed past their visa.
