SO it is a 7 year old census report, sounds like it needs to be updated, alot has changed 7 years.

"John Keeley, spokesman for the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank focused on immigration reform, disputed the results of the study and said census data for incarcerated and other institutionalized people were flawed in 2000"

Keeley added that migrant communities tend to underreport crimes and that all immigrant criminals might not be in jail.

Keeley also said that the children of immigrants posed a crime problem not considered in the statistics.

True, but it is a shame that our government isn't protecting us from those here illegally. Our American Citizens should not be getting hurt by illegals, period. Lets just let them run amuck because "hey, people get hurt"

I was physically hurt by an illegal immigrant when she slammed her truck into my car. She had no drivers license or auto ins.

it's hard enough to take care of the american population, let alone try to keep track of 12+ million illegals...so what? who cares if an illegal hurts you...or someone you love....you don't care about mine...just as the empire falls.
i don't live that way...i love my neighbor, care about his family....and try to do the right thing. the golden rule.....still alive and well in n.m.

Right but.. whos job is it to take care of the American population? The Government? They should be responsible for giving us free health care or Welfare. Thats like having your neighbor support your family. And that isn't fair right?

No, I am not wrong in believing it is the Govt's responsibility for protecting us from foreign invaders. It is absolutely NOTHING like having my neighbor support me. My Govt's responsibility is to protect our country and her people.
