Skip to comments.40% of Federal Criminal Cases in 2013 Were in Districts on Mexican Border

Whether measured by the number of criminal cases filed by U.S. attorneys or the number of guilty verdicts they ultimately secured in cases in U.S. district courts, 40 percent of the federal crimes documented by the Justice Department in fiscal 2013 took place in the five U.S. court districts (out of the total of 94 U.S. court districts) that sit on the U.S.-Mexico border.
These five U.S. court districts contiguous with the Mexican border were also the five where the largest numbers of individuals were convicted of federal crimes in fiscal 2013. In the Western Texas district alone--which saw more federal crime than any other district in the country--more than twice as many federal criminals were convicted in fiscal 2013 as in all four U.S. court districts in New York state combined.
The Southern Texas district also saw more than twice as many people convicted of federal crimes in fiscal 2013 as all four districts in New York combined.

Sounds like racial profiling to me. /sarc
SHHHHH! The Justice Department probably doesn’t keep stats and now that this info has been released, they’ll have to start cutting back on their prosecutions. They certainly didn’t mean to prosecute the “poor victims” of whatever they can think of.... They will have to issue apologies now.
That’s sort of what I was looking for in my post...they will now recognize that they were racial profiling. Their solution will be to STOP all prosecutions of any person or group that isn’t WHITE!
