Posted on 06/12/2012 6:51:30 PM PDT by kevcol
Illegal immigrants are erroneously perceived to commit more crime based on the mistaken theory their population size is much larger than it really is, according to the findings of a respected public university in a southern border state.
If this isnt the most ridiculous waste of taxpayer dollars, what is? A professor at a taxpayer-funded university in Arizona has actually published a study intended to answer a baffling question; why do so many Americans believe undocumented immigrants commit more crime? The public consistently perceives immigrants, especially undocumented immigrants, as criminal, says the Arizona State University professor (Xia Wang) of criminology who set the record straight.
As for the rest of the nations population, the Arizona study concludes unequivocally, that illegal immigrants actually commit less crime than the native born. Those who disagree arent being reasonable or rational, according to this brilliant piece of work. Its all just a big mistake.

What a bunch of BS this article is.
First of all they are “illegal” so a crime is committed right off the bat. Most Americans go their entire lives without committing a crime; illegal immigrants start out their lives in the US by committing a crime.
All illegal alien crime is EXTRA.
In June 2010, undocumented immigrants represented 14.8 percent of Arizona state prisoners
Xia Wang huh? There’s a good old American name. That freeloading bass turd is probably an expert on this stuff. (sarc/) This is a wagon load of horse apples.
Answer: They can not!
Illegals commit crimes constantly. Law enforcement doesn’t arrest them because they have no money to pay for LE salaries. LE in this country is profit oriented. You have money, you’ll get pulled over.
Just another lie from the prince of lies... his son needs his help.
Less crime but more of it.
How do they fare if you take Obama’s sons out of the equation?
Article is full of BS.
Every single illegal alien has committed a felony simply because they are an illegal alien. That means that 100% of illegal aliens are criminals.
If we’re going to selectively enforce the laws, then our elected officials better stop enforcing gun control laws first.
Actually, EVERY SINGLE illegal immigrant commits a crime while in the United States.
The crime is illegal entry of the United States, causing a law enforcement clog and forestalling the process by which legal immigrants are granted entry.
This study is patently and obviously false on the face of it.
Not to mention being utterly irrelevant.
I can tell you one thing. The crimes committed by illegals would be that much less if they weren’t here.
Other than that I’m calling BS on the study.
The typical illegal alien commits several felonies just to get a job. They obtain false State issued identification or drivers’ licenses. They have to steal someone else’s identity to get a false social security number. They claim exempt on their W-2 so they don’t have to have taxes taken out of their checks and then they don’t file tax returns. They drive cars without licenses and use fake registrations and drive without insurance and when they are involved in an auto accident, they leave the scene of the accident and just leave their car as litter on the highway.
But they commit less crimes than Americans?
This study is your tax dollars at work.
Yes-—but you are logical. Marxists are irrational.
That’s funny. 100% of them committed a crime coming here. That’s why they are called illegals morons.
I guess all those gang members from MS13, MS 18, Los Locos, etc. are really native-born Amish. Not non-Americans here, folks.
I guess the coyotes and drug-smugglers are also locally-recruited Amish. Those Arizona Amish are particularly nasty, unlike their peaceful Pennsylvania brothers and sisters (I saw “Witness”, you know. And John Kerry spent Christmas in Cambodia).
Not one word about her immigration status . . .
