This study should put to rest, once and for all, the notion that illegal aliens commit crimes at a lower rate than legal residents
(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) A new study from the Federation for American Immigration Reform debunks the claim that illegal aliens commit crimes at a lower rate than legal residents and native-born citizens.
This study should put to rest, once and for all, the notion that illegal aliens commit crimes at a lower rate than legal residents, FAIR President Dan Stein said.
FAIRs study, using data from the federal governments State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP), found that illegal aliens perpetrate crimes three times more often than legal residents.
In some states, illegal immigrants commit crimes at five times the rate of legal residents.
SCAAP is a federal program that compensates states for locking up criminal illegal aliens. With access to this data, FAIR estimated the total illegal alien inmate population in some states.
FAIR chose to study Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington because they have the highest concentration of illegal aliens, they regularly report to SCAAP, and 65 percent of the United States illegal alien population lives within them.
While the report shows that authorities incarcerate illegal aliens on criminal convictions three times more than legal residents, it leaves out a key fact: every illegal alien has committed a crime by entering the United States without authorization.
The mainstream media portrays illegal aliens as much less likely to commit crimes because they fear deportation. But the states studied have numerous sanctuary jurisdictions, where local law enforcement refuses to comply with federal immigration authorities, so deportation is not as prevalent a threat.
In California, where immigration enforcement has been optional for decades, illegal aliens are incarcerated at 3.3...

Must be because of racist conservatives and global warming.
Because they’re natives. Or something.
Yesterday I heard it was four. Are we in a bidding war?
Illegal aliens always commit crimes; their first is crossing an international border without using the customs point and without permission.
Even ‘legitimate’ examples favored by the leftists falsify documents, steal identities, evade taxes, etc, etc, etc.
Three times as often? Only if you’re sticking fingers in your ear and covering your eyes.
Who is going to call out Juan Williams when he spews the falsehood.....again?
Blacks commit five times as many crimes as non-blacks.
“Looks like we’re going to need bigger prisons.”
Nah, just follow the example of Los Angeles. Legalize everything.
I’m actually puzzled, the decriminalization of everything has been wreaking havoc in the rural area where I live, I can not imagine how much of an impact it’s had in major urban areas, yet shockingly, I’ve heard virtually nothing about those big city crime waves which I’m sure echoes what’s happening here.
I think it’s one of those “diversity and multiculturalism” things.
Build the wall, enforce the law, deport them all!
The number is not important
Do you agree Illegals commit more crimes relatively speaking than Americans?
“Che Cortez” said that Mexicans
Were here First,,,so they
Can’t be illegal!
She’s Obammy in a skirt,
More Trouble ahead.
I was thinking particularly of LA’s no longer enforcing shoplifting laws. I assume the retailers will jack up prices to cover their losses. If it were San Francisco, the supervisors would then force retailers to drop their prices back down. Maybe LA will.
Anything less is nothing more than unorganized blather (yak... yak... yak...) with little overall impact.
Too bad The Stupid Party had sub-standard marketing communication skills.
the media lies of there is no difference between legal and illegal as do the politicians lie; the 911s pile up and death is the rule of the days for American Citizens year after year yet Americans lives remain worthless to politicians and the media
Beat me to it.
And, moreover, if the number was lower, but still within sight of “1”, I’d still say vet harder and keep most of them out.
I’m just gobsmacked that on something that’s this important no one seems to really know anything quantitative, although its obvious the number is somewhere between 2 and 10. Did this study count identity theft? Motor vehicle uninsured driver accidents? Etc, etc.
They all commit one common crime — They are here illegally.
When blacks are suspended at a higher rate from schools for violations, and stopped much more often on the roads for dangerous driving, and arrested at a higher rate for weapons and drugs and stolen property and home invasions....
It is obviously due to white racism and white racist cops.
arresting illegals for actual crimes shows police are picking on the illegals. Do they arrest white ministers and doctors or animal rescue volunteers at the same rate as illegal home invaders? No.
