The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office has released a groundbreaking study with the help of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office breaking down the numbers of felonies illegal immigrants in Maricopa County commit. Contrary to media myths, illegal immigrants commit more felonies than the rest of the population on average. Even when crimes that may be related to smuggling are taken out of the equation, illegal immigrants still commit most felonies at higher rates. Illegal immigrants make up 9% of the population in Arizona, but are sentenced to 20.3% of all felony DUIs.

Illegal immigrants are sentenced for 10.3% of sex crimes, 13.1% of auto thefts, and 12.6% of all thefts including shoplifting. In crimes that might be related to illegal entry, illegal immigrants account for 35.8% of sentences for kidnapping, 85.3% of sentences for criminal impersonation/false ID, and 50% of sentences for chop shops.

Overall, 16.5% of violent crimes can be linked to illegal immigrants. The average cost for each offense? A whopping $20,000, which includes prosecution, incarceration, and other costs. 18.5% of property crimes are due to illegal immigrants.

The GAO studied 55,000 illegal immigrants and found that on average, each had been arrested for 13 offenses. 80% of the arrests occurred in California, Arizona, and Texas. It costs $61.74 per day to house a prison inmate in Arizona. Combine that enormous cost with Arizona’s tax and spend governor Janet Napolitano, and it comes as no surprise that Arizona’s economy is suffering and facing a $2 billion dollar deficit.

No surprise to learn this, JDubsMom.

Only an idealist with a single digit IQ would expect an Illegal to honor and/or respect any of our laws once they have snubbed their noses at our Immigration Laws and attacked our Border Patrol Agents when entering this country.

What does concern me is those insolent illegal immigrant lawbreakers will start doing more stupid crap due to the growing pressure to deport 'em.

We had a police officer kicked unconscious by a group of drunk illegals. The officer received a call to check out a disturbance in a remote area near my town. He was hit with beer bottles, knocked down, kicked and kicked even after he was unconscious.

Agreed. As much as the two candidates wish to ignore this travesty, they will eventually have to acknowledge that amnesty is not a option.

I hope to God that those criminals were caught and punished to the fullest extent of the law.

How can you argue with fact. To expect the lawless to obey law is like expecting a stray dog to not #### in your house once you let it in.
