In states hit hard by illegal immigration, we (I live in Arizona) are also being hit hard by seeing our murder rates skyrocket. Mexico’s criminal element, and especially their violent criminal element, has found a wonderful new home here in the United States. And they’re willing to kill to stay here, even if it’s in prison.
You won’t see these numbers talked about in the major media. You won’t see Republican politicians talking about them. You certainly won’t see Democrats – who fundamentally represent Mexico on this issue – discussing them.
- Between 2008 and 2014, 40% of all murder convictions in Florida were criminal aliens. In New York it was 34% and Arizona 17.8%.
- During those years, criminal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in the five states of California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New York, while illegal aliens constitute only 5.6% of the total population in those states.
- That 38% represents 7,085 murders out of the total of 18,643.
In other words, the murder rate for illegal aliens – primarily Mexicans and Central Americans being escorted through Mexico by the Mexican government – is seven times higher than average.
The numbers come from the Government Accountability Office using DOJ data on criminal aliens in the prison system.
The data is readily available, although it takes a lot of time to sort through it. Your government – specifically the Obama administration – doesn’t want you to be able to find it. The Republican Establishment isn’t complaining about, or even talking about it, because they want amnesty just as bad as Obama does.
In Obama’s case, he wants amnesty because he knows illegals are Democratic voters. In the case of the Republican Establishment, they’re just dumb as box of rocks.
In the case of the media, their style manuals won’t even allow the phrase “illegal immigrant” to appear in a story.
No matter how you feel – or what you think – about Donald Trump, he’s at least forced a conversation on the subject of illegal aliens. For that he deserves, at the very least, our thanks.
