If we deport all of the strawmen, maybe a strawman wall will help keep this thread from coming back?

If we deport all the illegals then we will no longer need a thread like this one.

If that were true this data could not have been collected: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/21/u...ts-crimes.html

Default It doesn't say what you think it does, & it omits a lot

The 6th & 7th paras of your cite:

"The proportion of unauthorized immigrants in federal prison may be explained partly by the fact that immigration offenses now account for about half of all federal prosecutions, including those for smuggling people into the United States, illegally entering the country and illegally re-entering the country after being deported."

“The report proves one thing only: The administration will take any opportunity possible to twist facts to demonize immigrants,” said Tom Jawetz, the vice president for immigration policy at the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank. “The vast majority of immigrants in federal prison are there for crimes that only immigrants can be charged with — illegal entry and illegal entry after removal. When you cook the books you shouldn’t pretend to be surprised by the results.”

para 11:

"But scanning the records of immigrants in federal custody can yield only limited information at best. State and local prisons and jails hold approximately 90 percent of the country’s total incarcerated population, according to the Justice Department, and the vast majority of violent crimes such as murders, assaults and rapes are prosecuted at the local, not federal, level."

(My emphasis)

There may be more, I simply stopped reading when I saw this.

Do you think a wall will stop someone like this from coming back?

Yes, it likely will, how does your door on your house work for keeping out unwanted people.

For unwanted people, it works great.
For crazy murderers like this one, probably not.

It would work better than leaving it unlocked, that is what we have now with no real boarder wall in most places. Build the wall and deport all illegals.

It would certainly be a better deterrant than what we have now. Even if this particular person were able to get pass the wall it would still deter a lot of other illegal aliens (links provided many times).
