A new report from the Crime Prevention Research Center indicates that illegal aliens commit twice the number of crimes in Arizona than legal residents of the state, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Friday. Not only that, the findings also indicate that their crimes are more severe.
Three percent of Arizona’s population is made up of illegal aliens between the ages of 15 and 35. However, they make up 8 percent of the prison population, according to The Washington Times.
The author of the research center’s report, John Lott, said:
“There appears to be a huge difference between the two groups. 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.”
The Times adds:
Among nearly 4,000 first- and second-degree murder convictions, undocumented immigrants 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.
Undocumented immigrants 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.
For those special snowflake Dreamers, Lott said the crime rate among them is 250 percent higher than those native-born.
AG Sessions said on Friday: “They’re more likely to be convicted of sexual assault, robbery, and driving under the influence. They’re more than twice as likely to be convicted of murder. Tens of thousands of crimes have been committed in this country that would never have happened if our immigration laws were enforced and respected like they ought to be.”
And yet the Democrats and the media want us to believe that illegal immigrants aren’t rule breakers when the truth is, yes, they are!
