As reported in June, 2008, NBC’s Brian Williams said, “Chicago high schools suffer 50 percent dropout rates while Detroit shows a 76 percent dropout rate for area high schools.”
What do those cities share in common? Answer: two to three million illegal aliens and their children. Additionally, dozens of languages other than English!
It may be politically incorrect to mention that Chicago area hosts two to three million illegal aliens, mostly from third-world nations such as Mexico and Guatemala. It may be outrageous and unconscionable to mention that the U.S. DOJ-FBI reports that fully ten percent (400,000) of them are seasoned criminals.
Yet, the mayors and governors of those states fail to lift a finger or speak a word about what’s really happening in those areas.

“While busy putting on its best face to garner a 2016 Olympics bid and basking in the afterglow of President Obama's election – Chicago has become the nation's most violent city for youths,” said Billups. “With three weeks left before summer break, a record 36 Chicago Public School students have been killed this school year, marking the third straight year that youth homicides have climbed into double digits. Chicago has surpassed New York City and Los Angeles for having the highest youth homicide rate in the nation.”

*****************

“The latest victim in Chicago's long year of student killings is 15-year-old Alex Arellano. On May 1, he was chased, beaten with baseball bats, run over by a car, shot and burned. His body was found days after he disappeared from his family's home on the city's South Side. Police continue to investigate the killing; gang activity has been suggested.”

In all fairness, I wouldn't say Detroit or Wayne County has any illegal problem considering how bad the economy is in Detroit so why would they go there? Plus Detroit has been going bad since the 1960's.

Illegals still seem to go where the Economy is bad.. Central California (Merced, Modesto, etc..) has a huge population of illegal aliens, eventhough they have near 20% Unemployment..

this is the blame it on the illegals forum.

youll get used to it.

looking at the problem of crime in CHI town or Detroit from a singular perspective of [supposed or perceived] illegality is just plain simplemindedness.

this same topic was brought up already. OP likes to harp.
harp.
harp some more.

these threads are a joke. tenous links. spuriousfacts.

Of course it never occurs to you or your ilk that if illegals didn't commit a multitude of heinous criminal acts, we anti-illegals would have nothing to talk about.

Or better yet, if they weren't even here! This would be a forum devoted to the discussion of potential illegal immigrants.
