Re: Whats worse...trump or republicans ?

More 'beliefs' 20. Check the stats and I think you will find illegal immigrants are even less likely to do any wrongs in your country.

Re: Whats worse...trump or republicans ?

'Tis, of course a stunning example of "motivated reasoning" to believe that any significant number of illegal immigrants would risk committing a felony in order to cast one vote.

Thinking about pore 'ol Sean Spicer, who seems like a nice enough guy.

But having to begin your career as press secretary by repeating lies about crowd size and voter fraud didn't turn out well for him.

Afraid you will learn the truth instead of those mistaken beliefs 20?

This is just the first thing that popped up when I looked, lots more to confirm this if you wish to learn the truth instead of 'just believing' erroneous claims

All told, Light and Miller sliced the data 57 ways to see whether there was anything they missed, but not one of their analyses showed any positive relationship between illegal immigration and crime. They concluded that not only does illegal immigration not increase crime, but it may actually contribute to the drop in overall crime rates observed in the United States in recent decades.

Every ILLEGAL that enters the country has already broken the law and clogged the court system. The washington post is nothing but a fake news propaganda rag.

So you did not bother reading the link I posted.

Keep believing if you want but it will not change the FACTS as posted.  If you choose to live in reality you have to accept what evidence shows and get rid of beliefs and 'just believing

Re: Whats worse...trump or republicans ?

Here are some facts. Of course you just believe. Why is it Blackface Trudeau enforces Canada's immigration laws? Hummmm? Does Blackface let everyone in that shows up at the border or does Blackface force them through a vetting process?

 

The U.S. population is around 328 million. It’s estimated that about 11 million — or one in 30 — are illegal immigrants. Yet criminal aliens account for more than one in five federal prison inmates. Even assuming a pretty radical margin of error for the sake of argument, that would still mean illegal immigrants are drastically over-represented among the criminal population.

And the actual picture may be worse, since the government says it has no way to be notified of all imprisoned illegal immigrants. So, instead, it counts a subset of them that it learns about through identifiers such as an FBI number.

The latest information is included in a recent report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO). The summary by the leader of GAO’s Homeland Security and Justice team, Gretta Goodwin, seems oddly written to try to put a positive spin on the grim findings. It highlights this figure: From 2011 through 2016, the criminal alien proportion of the total estimated federal inmate population generally decreased, from about 25 percent to 21 percent.

Stop there and you might think we’re on a good path. But dig into the actual report and footnotes — and it’s difficult to sugarcoat the findings.

For starters, 91 percent of federal criminal aliens were citizens of Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Colombia or Guatemala.

There were more than 730,000 criminal aliens in U.S. or state prisons and local jails during the period measured. They accounted for 4.9 million arrests for 7.5 million offenses. (The numbers, according to the GAO: 197,000 criminal aliens in federal prisons, arrested 1.4 million times for 2 million offenses, between 2011 and 2016; 533,000 in state or local facilities between 2010 and 2015, representing 3.5 million arrests for 5.5 million offenses.)

The arrests include allegations of more than 1 million drug crimes, a half-million assaults, 133,800 sex offenses and 24,200 kidnappings. Even more serious, the imprisoned illegal immigrants, over a five-year period, had been arrested for 33,300  homicide-related offenses and 1,500 terrorism-related crimes.

In terms of cost, federal taxpayers shelled out more than $15 billion during the period studied — or $2.5 billion a year — to keep criminal aliens behind bars in federal, state and local facilities.

Many are repeat offenders. Of about 146,500 criminal aliens who finished a federal prison term, about one in six — around 24,800 — already had been imprisoned again at least once.
