Exposing the truth about some illegals' criminal tendencies

ICE arrest (new pic)An immigration enforcement advocacy organization has released a study that debunks one of the typical arguments spoken by proponents of open borders.

The study was conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which contends that its findings should put to rest the notion that individuals who are in the U.S. illegally commit crimes at a lower rate than do native-born citizens.

Dave Ray is a spokesman for FAIR. He says they studied the incarceration rates of ten states: Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. All of those states participate in the federal government's State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP), which reimburses states for a small portion of the costs of incarcerating criminal illegal aliens.

"In one of those states [New Jersey], we found that aliens were actually five times more likely to be incarcerated than legal residents," Ray tells OneNewsNow, "but on average illegal aliens are three times as likely to be incarcerated than legal residents."

Ray contends the study clearly exposes the arguments typically put forth by advocates for illegal immigration.

"... [T]he open borders advocates have long argued [what they say] is the conventional wisdom that illegal aliens are simply here to do jobs that nobody else wants to do and that they don't break any laws or harm anyone," the FAIR spokesman explains. "... [T]his certainly puts to rest that argument and puts some light on the fact that this is an issue we need to get under control."

Ray concludes by saying the study comes at a great time for President Donald Trump, who is trying to get Congress to fund his barrier along the southern border.
