(TheRedAlertNews.com) – For years, liberals have claimed that illegal aliens in the United States of America commit less crime than legal citizens.
If a new study is correct, and there’s no reason to believe it isn’t, that claim is not valid when it comes to the most heinous crimes of all — including murder.
As The Washington Times is reporting in a piece headlined “Texas data indicates illegal immigrants have higher murder rates“:
“For years, Texas’ crime data has been used to argue that illegal immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than the general population.
“A new report by the Center for Immigration Studies says it’s all wrong, and when the data is considered more broadly, rates of serious crimes such as homicide and sexual assault are substantially higher among illegal immigrants than native-born and legal residents.” [emphasis added]
Here are the specifics:
“In 2012, for example, the overall population recorded three homicide convictions for every 100,000 people in the state. The rate among only illegal immigrants is 30% higher, at 3.9 for every 100,000 people. Indeed, illegal immigrants showed a higher rate of homicide in all but one year from 2012 to 2019…
“‘At least when it comes to serious crime, illegals in Texas seem to have relatively high crime rates,’ said Steven A. Camarota, one of the researchers on the new report. ‘The argument to the contrary is based on a misunderstanding or a misreading of the data.'” [emphasis added]
