WASHINGTON (Map, News) - A wave of burglaries is spreading across the Washington area, and police say illegal immigrants, hit by police crackdowns and the drop in new construction, are likely playing a key role.

“The immigrant community is at a tipping point,” said Montgomery County police community liaison Officer Luis Hurtado. “The poor economy is pushing more immigrants to turn to crime.”

Hopefully it will 'push' them back to their countries of origin.

Those idiots (illegal immigrants) are doing nothing but enraging more and more 'fence sitters' and pushing the latter away from granting any sort of amnesty.

Oh well.

As I stated in the past: the beginning of the end for the gravy train of aiding/abetting illegals 'jumped the track' 2 years ago with those foolish demonstrations.

I know this factored into the rise in crime in illegal-hugging high and mighty (siditty) Fairfax County.

Last week, about 100 residents from the massive Latino community in Takoma/Langley Park, which straddles the Prince George’s-Montgomery County line, met with police officials from both counties. They demanded action for what they described as a neighborhood under siege.
Even they acknowledge a problem. I guess the Latinos in this community are simply racist against illegal aliens. Hmm...

Frankly; as all of you well know, I am extremely anti illegal immigration.

That stated: if the above Latinos are either US citizens or green card holders; I would support them in their efforts to rid themselves of the illegal immigrant menace.

Agreed. Of course, I was exercising a little sarcasm.
