You forgot the unforgivable and despicable crime of secretly crossing an imaginary line to find a job, of which illegal immigrants are 100% more guilty than the rest of us law-abiding, jaywalking, pot smoking citizens thank you very much.

Read the article first, because really thats all they're doing. J-walking across the border. Does this make it ok? of course not!

I posted this on a similar thread earlier, it's equally relevant here. Enjoy!

I am reading this report in PDF form, called, "Crime, Corrections and California: What Does Immigration have to do with it" written by the Public Policy Institute of California, and at the bottom of page 3, the very last paragraph in the last sentence, I'll quote.

"As with most studies, we do not have ideal data. This lack of data restricts the questions we will be able to answer. In particular we cannot focus on the undocumented population explicitly."

http://www.ppic.org/content/pubs/cac...CC_208KBCC.pdf

This is a direct quote, the very last paragraph on page 3 of this report which is found in the link above.

LIKE I SAID, THEY DO NOT GATHER DATA ON UNDOCUMENTED ILLEGAL ALIENS WHO COMMIT CRIMES, THE INFORMATION IS NOT AVAILABLE.
I guess the people in the article I posted did.

This is the report in the news article. It's only 28 pages long you'll enjoy it. Very easy to read and understand.

Make sure you don't skip the bottom of page three, the very last paragraph, focus in and read that a couple of times.

I'm pretty sure finding out statistics in illegal arrests isn't hard. Just look at these articles on this forum, theres plenty.

Here's a quote taken from another board.

"...there are several sources that state 28% of inmates in CA prisons are non-citizens, 95% of murder warrants in LA are for illegals, and the majority of the top ten most wanted in LA are illegals."

We're not talking about L.A. We're talking about the bigger picture.

In Los Angeles county there are 8 million people, and most likely an additional 1 million illegals.

What size Plasma HDTV do you need to see the bigger picture?
