Illegal Alien Crime

Link to source.

Alone and often without money or a place to live, illegal immigrants in big cities are prone to joining gangs in order to acquire food and shelter. Feeling secure among people of their own race or status (illegal), the new immigrant oftentimes embraces the gang as his surrogate family, and crime becomes his new occupation.

In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide (which total 1,200 to 1,500) target illegal aliens. Up to two thirds of all fugitive felony warrants (17,000) are for illegal aliens.

“In 2002, nearly 29 percent, or 39,000 inmates, in the federal prison system were non-citizens. Based on prior research, we estimated that 59 percent of this total are illegal aliens. This translates into 17 percent of the federal prison population, and thus 17 percent of the $4.1 billion prison budget can be attributed to illegal alien households” The fact that 17 percent of America’s prisoners are illegal immigrants is evidence of the vast extent of their involvement in crime and criminal activities.

Illegal immigration is a contributing factor behind the high crime rates in many of America’s larger cities. Making matters worse is the fact that many of the illegal immigrants committing the crimes are protected by misguided policies set up by city and state governments.

“[Sanctuary] laws testify to the sheer political power of immigrant lobbies, a power so irresistible that police officials shrink from even mentioning the illegal alien crime wave. �We can’t even talk about it,’ says a frustrated lapd captain. �People are afraid of a backlash from Hispanics.’ Another lapd commander in a predominantly Hispanic, gang-infested district sighs: �I would get a firestorm of criticism if I talked about [enforcing the immigration law against illegals].’ Neither captain would speak for attribution”
