I think so, after all you have a higher probability of getting stabbed or shot in East Los Angeles for example than you have in say Chinatown.

Truth? Considering how many illegal 'Hispanics' we have here in the first place--------the odds of one being a violent criminal may indeed be lower than for an illegal Asian.

I think in an ethnic enclave where everyone speaks only mandarin, or vietnamese or korean you may have a higher chance of criminal activity with asian gangs.
I do think it is rare though, if only because asians want their children to speak english, excell in school and get the hell out of the 'neighborhood' as soon as possible whereas many illegal hispanic groups tend to congregate in ethnic enclaves and don't care to branch out into mainstream america.

Being married to an asian. Also I am surrounded by asian culture. I would say less asian illegals are violent criminals. They are a conservative culture. They from upon exhibitionist behaviors. Not to mention most really really fear disappointing their parents.

(let's say SoCal) From reading the news, local, state and national, even if every illegal asian commited a crime, Hispanics would still have it topped.
Actually it's an unfair analysis. Everyone knows there are more illegal hispanics here than any other ethnic group.

Don't fool yourself. Some Asians also take advantage of their own, they are involved in organized crime and many illegal Asian women are forced into prostitution here in the states.
