Following on yesterday’s post here about legal immigration (“good”) vs. illegal immigration (“less good”), I have been trying to find some statistics about criminality, comparing legal to illegal immigrants. There seems to be an effort to show that legal immigrants do not commit more crimes than native-born, and that illegals are the only immigrants who tend to commit more crimes.
It’s obvious that of late, what with the effort to gradually choke out all dissenting (politically incorrect) opinions online, that any data which casts a negative impression of immigrants is being scrubbed from the internet. It seems that in general fewer search engines will link to anything that is politically incorrect, whether to blogs or news articles and opinion pieces. Of course the reliably dishonest media report only data and opinions that reinforce the ”narrative” and attempt to discredit and exclude dissident thought or information. So it is getting harder to find truthful, factual data.
Despite the plethora of articles from the usual Mendacious Media sources, assuring us that immigrants do not increase the crime rates — in fact, that they commit fewer crimes than native-born Americans, I am not convinced.
At the very least we know of a good many crimes, reported in the media, involving immigrants, often ‘refugees.’ Examples: many cases of fraud by merchants (usually convenience-store owners) involving EBT/food stamps or other government benefits. These are not isolated stories, but part of a pattern.
We read of the rampant use by immigrants/refugees of counterfeit ID cards and theft of Social Security numbers/identity fraud. We need only go to certain areas in most cities of any size to find immigrants openly peddling forged ID cards for sale to anybody willing to pay. There are many people known, even by their employers, to be working under the table, not paying taxes on their earnings, because they are not legally here, or in some cases, some are here legally but unwilling to be taxed on their earnings — the money goes back ‘home’, so that billions of American dollars are sent to immigrants’ home countries each year.
The list could go on and on. Yet we are expected to believe that immigrants are scrupulously honest if they are here legally, despite many incentives to cheat and flout laws.
And what about prevalence of drunk driving on the part of many immigrants, especially Latinos? This is a well-known ”cultural practice” amongst Latinos, as is the ”cultural” acceptance of a very low age of consent for young girls to consort with adult men.
And as I have said before, look up the search term ”quinceanera shooting” or quinceanera stabbing. An inordinate number of assaults, even killings occur at girls’ fifteenth birthday celebrations, supposedly the age at which they are considered adult women.
But pay no attention to the facts; listen only to what the lying media tell us; nothing to see here. Immigrants, especially those with certain documents making them legal, are pure as driven snow, and do not have any proclivity to crime or violence.
However you might look up, for example, some of Ron Guhname’s data at the Inductivist website, where he provides interesting statistics on cultural habits and practices, broken down by nationality. This one, for example, on which ethnic groups are most arrested.
The usual rationalization is that ‘racist’ police ”target” certain groups. Given that most police forces now have ”diversity” quotas to ensure that “racist” White police can’t persecute innocent diversities, that excuse won’t cut it.
Another example from Inductivist, this time about the percentages, based on ethnicity, displaying traits like selfishness and pessimism.
And what about crime rates within certain countries, (most Latin American countries have far higher rates of violent crime, as is well-established as fact) but the data at Inductivist’s link show the effect of diversity (heterogeneity) in violent crime.
None of this is consistent with the Party Line laid down by immigration apologists and enthusiasts whether on the ”right” or on the left. We are being gaslighted, as usual, by both sides when it comes to immigration and diversity. And the disturbing thing is that there seems to be a more zealous effort to suppress any data that contradicts the propaganda. Soon this country may be more like Europe where even questioning offical dogma on ethnicity and immigration will be a criminal offense.
