The crime rate among illegal aliens in Arizona is twice that of other residents, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday, citing a new report based on conviction data.
The report, from the Crime Prevention Research Center, used a previously untapped set of data from Arizona that detailed criminal convictions and found that illegal aliens between 15 and 35 are less than 3 percent of the state’s population, but nearly 8 percent of its prison population.
And the crimes they were convicted of were, on the whole, more serious, said John R. Lott Jr., the report’s author and president of the research center.
His findings also challenge the general narrative that illegal aliens commit fewer crimes. Those past studies usually don’t look at legal versus illegal populations, Mr. Lott said.
Mr. Lott said the Arizona data is able to peek behind that curtain, and the differences between the populations were stark.
“There appears to be a huge difference between the two groups,” Mr. Lott said. “The type of person who goes through the process to legally immigrate in the United States appears to be very law-abiding versus even the U.S.-born population. The reverse is true for undocumented immigrants — they are committing crimes, and more serious crimes.”
Among nearly 4,000 first- and second-degree murder convictions, illegal aliens accounted for nearly 13 percent — significantly higher than their percentage of the population. Legal immigrants, by contrast, were less than 1 percent of convicts. Native-born made up the rest.
illegal aliens also accounted for five times the rate of convictions for money laundering and kidnapping, and were three times more likely to be convicted of drive-by shootings.
The data covered from 1985 to 2017. For his data purposes, Mr. Lott defined illegal aliens as those who weren’t U.S. citizens or green card holders, signaling permanent residency.
He said the crime rates of the illegal aliens who were ages 18 to 35 was particularly important, given the ongoing debate over legalizing illegal alien “Dreamers.” He said the Arizona data showed that population had crime rates 250 percent higher than their share of the population would have predicted.
In another example, shocking statistics show there is a massive illegal alien crime wave in the Lone Star State.
So how bad is crime committed by illegal aliens in the Lone Star State?
In short, a crime wave of historic proportions. See below.
Texas Criminal Alien Arrest Data
According to DHS status indicators, over 240,000 criminal aliens have been booked into local Texas jails between June 1, 2011, and December 31, 2017. During their criminal careers, these criminal aliens were charged with more than 638,000 criminal offenses.
Those arrests include
1. 1,300 homicide charges;
2. 76,044 assault charges;
3. 18,126 burglary charges;
4. 76,660 drug charges;
5. 774 kidnapping charges;
6. 43,591 theft charges;
7. 49,154 obstructing police charges;
8. 4,180 robbery charges;
9. 6,878 sexual assault charges; and
10. 9,561 weapon charges.
Of the total criminal aliens arrested in that timeframe, over 160,000 or 66% were identified by DHS status as being in the US illegally at the time of their last arrest.
According to DPS criminal history records, those criminal charges have thus far resulted in over 286,000 convictions including
1. 547 homicide convictions;
2. 28,592 assault convictions;
3. 8,915 burglary convictions;
4. 37,581 drug convictions;
5. 268 kidnapping convictions;
6. 19,803 theft convictions;
7. 24,084 obstructing police convictions;
8. 2,153 robbery convictions;
9. 3,164 sexual assault convictions; and
10. 3,973 weapon convictions.
Of the convictions associated with criminal alien arrests, over 190,000 or 66% are associated with aliens who were identified by DHS status as being in the US illegally at the time of their last arrest.
Note: These are Texas charges for these criminal alien arrestees as reported to DPS by local agencies – the arrestees charted here may have offenses in other states. Texas arrestees who have not had interaction with the DHS which resulted in the collection of fingerprints are not included as their identity cannot be biometrically verified by DHS.
Despite this massive crime wave and suffering put upon American citizens by illegal aliens, Democrats insist on doing everything they can to allow the United States to be invaded by barbarians from all across the globe.
Don’t you think it’s time to bring all immigration from Latin America to a crawl, given the amount of damage that citizens from those nations have wrought upon America?
