Before anyone spouts the usual pro-illegal mantra -- yes, I know, blacks account for the vast majority of convictions. However, this is not a thread to discuss black criminality. Rather, it's a discussion on the impact of “illegal immigration” on crime statistics.

Because of the illegal immigration crackdown, 40 percent of those sentenced in federal court in 2007 were Latinos, an analysis of United States Sentencing Commission data has shown. The analysis, by the Pew Hispanic Center, says that the number is more than three times greater than Latinos' 13 percent share of the U.S. adult population. In 1991 Latinos made up just 24 percent of those sentenced in federal court. Since 1991, crimes that Latinos were sentenced for have flipped places. In 1991, 60 percent of Latinos were sentenced for drug crimes and 20 percent for immigration crimes. In 2007, 48 percent were sentenced for immigration crimes and 37 percent for drugs. The study also finds that between 1991 and 2007, the number of Latinos sentenced in federal court jumped 270 percent, and of those sentenced in 2007, 72 percent did not hold U.S. citizenship.

Hot Docs: Immigration Crackdown Boosts Crime Stats for Hispanics, a Veterinarian Shortage - US News and World Report

actually, due to immigration, it should boost the crime rates for Mexicans, not Cubans nor dominicans, nor Puerto Ricans, South Americans. I understand that we all speak the same language, but most cubans and DRs, and PRs don't account for the mass immigration like Mexicans do, or
South Americans for that matter.

Excellent point. I have to agree with you there. Unfortunately for the rest of the illegal aliens of hispanic descent LaRaza, Lulac, et al didn't get their copy of the memo.

Actually, it boosts crime rates for others too. Yeah, the Mexicans will probably be the most because we share a border with them. Look at specific areas like Miami and the Cubans for example. They all help add to the crime rate also.
