As some in the faith community struggle with this issue – worrying more about Donald Trump being mean than the societal issue of the attack on US Soverignty – let’s have a look at the real statistics related to illegal immigration:
Most states and our federal government have kept information and statistics about illegal immigration, crimes committed by illegals and the costs borne by you the U.S. payer out of public view. It is in fact difficult, but not impossible to locate accurate crime statistics involving illegal immigrants. The statistics are buried both to suit a political agenda and to avoid public outcry. Once you read this article, you will quickly understand why.
Research conducted by the federal government oversight organization Judicial Watch in 2014 documents that 50 percent of all federal crimes were committed near our border with Mexico.
Of the 61,529 criminal cases filed by federal prosecutors; 40 percent or 24,746 were in court districts along the southern borders of California, Arizona and Texas.
So here goes two arguments, one that “most” of the illegal aliens are not coming to commit crime and that illegal aliens do not commit crime at a higher rate than American Citizens. Further decimating that narrative is this:
The U.S. Department of Justice documents that in 2014, 19 percent or over 12,000 criminal cases filed by prosecutors were for violent crimes; and over 22 percent or 13,300 cases were for drug related felonies.
That same year, the U.S. Sentencing Commission found that 75 percent of all criminal defendants who were convicted and sentenced for federal drug offenses were illegal immigrants. Illegal immigrants were also involved in 17 percent of all drug trafficking sentences and one third of all federal prison sentences.
The U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Sentencing Commission reported that as of 2014, illegal immigrants were convicted and sentenced for over 13 percent of all crimes committed in the U.S.
If you believe that illegal aliens number around 12 Million, then they are 3.5% of the US Population. This also means that this 3.5% of the population account for 13% of all crime convictions. This is a horrendous crime rate. The narrative about the peaceful immigrant goes out the window.
This is similar to the canard of Muslim Refugees. They come from countries that support terrorism at the rate of 20-40% depending on the survey, it is insane to let people in when 1 in 4 on average want to kill infidels!
Yet, in the minds of some – I am a dirty rotten racist for pointing this stuff out.
According to the FBI, 67,642 murders were committed in the U.S. from 2005 through 2008, and 115,717 from 2003 through 2009. The General Accounting Office documents that criminal immigrants committed 25,064 of these murders.
To extrapolate out these statistics, this means that a population of just over 3.5 percent residing in the U.S. unlawfully committed 22 percent to 37 percent of all murders in the nation. This is astounding.
25,064 people would be alive today if the US was enforcing border laws. It is that simple.
The problem is that the democrat party want poor people on welfare and the us corporations want the cheap labor. The USA should have a right to vet immigrants and refugees. We have a right to decide who comes in to our country, and anyone yelling and screaming has another agenda. Think it through.
This will continue.
