Skip to comments.Arizona: Illegal Alien Crime Wave Continues
Posted on 05/01/2010 8:39:36 AM PDT by K-oneTexas
While politicians such as President Barack Obama denigrate the government of Arizona and "activists" attempt to punish that state's citizens, these so-called social justice paragons ignore the fact that the U.S. is Mexico's de facto penal colony.
Complex problems are associated with illegal aliens who commit crimes. Criminal aliens tend to be drug-oriented and violent, often preying on members of their own cultures. If deported, they frequently use new names to reenter the United States and establish residence in different cities.
Furthermore, aliens do not confine their criminal activities to border cities communities throughout this country are experiencing increasing alien involvement in drug importation and distribution, weapons smuggling, and violence against persons and property.
The escalation in alien crime has placed added demands on state and local law enforcement personnel. Effective identification of aliens involved in crime requires familiarity with fraudulent documentation. Proper arrest procedures must be carried out, and complex notification and reporting requirements must be satisfied; otherwise, dangerous aliens can escape prosecution and deportation.
Handling the myriad problems associated with alien crimes is often beyond the capabilities of local police departments.
Some illegal aliens in the United States have been arrested and incarcerated in federal and state prisons and local jails, adding to already overcrowded prisons and jails. On April 7, 2007, the US Justice Department issued a report on criminal aliens that were incarcerated in federal and state prisons and local jails.
In the population study of 55,322 illegal aliens, researchers found that they were arrested at least a total of 459,614 times, averaging about 8 arrests per illegal alien. Nearly all had more than 1 arrest. Thirty-eight percent (about 21,000) had between 2 and 5 arrests, 32 percent (about 18,000) had between 6 and 10 arrests, and 26 percent (about 15,000) had 11 or more arrests. Most of the arrests occurred after 1990.
They were arrested for a total of about 700,000 criminal offenses, averaging about 13 offenses per illegal alien. One arrest incident may include multiple offenses, a fact that explains why there are nearly one-and-a-half times more offenses than arrests. Almost all of these illegal aliens were arrested for more than 1 offense. Slightly more than half of the 55,322 illegal aliens had between 2 and 10 offenses.
More than two-thirds of the defendants charged with an immigration offense were identified as having been previously arrested. Thirty-six percent had been arrested on at least 5 prior occasions; 22%, 2 to 4 times; and 12%,1 time.
Sixty-one percent of those defendants had been convicted at least once; 18%, 5 or more times; 26%, 2 to 4 times; and 17%, 1 time. Of those charged, 49% had previously been convicted of a felony: 20% of a drug offense; 18%, a violent offense; and 11%, other felony offenses.
Twelve percent had previously been convicted of a misdemeanor.
Defendants charged with unlawful reentry had the most extensive criminal histories. Nine in ten had been previously arrested. Of those with a prior arrest, half had been arrested on at least 5 prior occasions.
Fifty-six percent of those charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted of a violent or drug-related felony. By contrast, under half of those charged with alien smuggling, a third of those charged with unlawful entry, and just over a quarter of those charged with misuse of visas and other charges had previously been arrested. The criminal histories of these defendants were generally less extensive: more than 70% had been previously arrested fewer than 5 times.
Screw’’illegal immigration’’ this is war. This is an organized, deliberate and violent invasion of the United States by the government of Mexico using it’s poor and it’s criminal class as troops.
well lol...you dont seem to get that they are entitled to rape kill and plunder ....our great leaders say so...we owe them that.
Funny how we hear all over the media about this politician or celebrity oppoinsg Arizona’s illegal immigration law, but the shooting of the deputy a couple of days ago was barely mentioned.
Might be interesting if these types of stories were highlighted more often, like the posts to raise the awaness of pit bull maulings.
So true. LEO’s evidently are expendable under the current ‘Management’ doctrine.
where’s the media reporting about the cop shot last night by illegals?
HEY MEDIA WHEN ARE YOU EVER GOING TO DO YOUR JOB AND REPORT FACTS?
Take a look at this,
The FBI Wanted for Murder page.
Is this list of 100 bad guys 98% Hispanic or only 95% ???
Hmmmmmmmm, Arny, Obama, Pelosi, and all the others ...
Want any of these living near you? Oh, I forgot:
Its US THAT THEY LIVE NEAR !!!
Kinda says it all ...
Since Jan Brewer has extra gonadic tissue, may be she can donate some to Rick Perry.
I wouldn't put the blame so much on Mexico as I would leftists in the USA. The leftists want revolution and are willing to import millions of foreign born to help them.
First you dig a really big hole. Oh wait,not politically correct? How about a few extra years in the slammer for illegals that commit crimes. Wow,i did it again. If they’re illegals they already committed a crime.
Take a look into Mexico’s government and you’ll just how organized it is on their part. They truly believe that it’s their right and their destiny to re-take the Southwestern US and they mean it. The Left here is their fifth-column, you’re right but it all originates from Mexico.
Hard facts are not good enough for libs. They only go by feelings, and these poor immigrant chaps are victims of rich, white capitalists.
Do a search on the keyword 'aliens'.
This may be the ONLY time John McCain told the truth.
John McCain: no amnesty for illegal aliens could lead to France-style riots
...The man wasnt satisfied with McCains answer. He asked McCain why the U.S. couldnt execute large-scale deportations, as he had heard they did in France and other countries. The question seemed to pique McCain.
In case you hadnt noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France, McCain said. Theyve got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police cant even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I dont want that in the suburbs of America.
Then send them home, you ninny.
And, remember, they are here for one reason, and one reason only: YOU DIDN'T DO YOUR DAMN JOB!!!!!!!!
Yes, but we have something that the French do not have - the second amendment. If a bunch of freeloading thugs tries burning cars and trashing things in my neighborhood, they would encounter a rather large mass of armed, angry citizens. The police would merely need to fill out some paperwork afterwards.
The point McCain was making is if they don’t get amnesty they will riot just like the ‘immigrants’ did in France. Fear mongering. Well, the anarchy is already here, so that excuse doesn’t cut it any more.
