The left have been pushing a false narrative. The truth is that many non-citizen coming into America are criminals. This is causing an enormous strain on our courts and prisons, translating into billions of dollars.

the 2018 Annual Report and Sourcebook of Federal Sentencing Statistics shows they committed more than 40 percent of all federal crimes


A breakdown of crimes in the report show about 92 percent of immigration crimes, or about 21,835 cases, involved non-citizens. But they also committed other crimes at far higher rates than their 7 percent proportion of the population as a whole.
Cases involving drug possession, for example, were nearly evenly split between citizens and non-citizens with 361 and 339, respectively. In other words, non-citizens violated federal drug possession laws at a rate roughly seven times higher than citizens.

This thread is going to greatly upset our Leftist friends who will not appreciate these facts about future Democrat voters.
Democrats seem to like lawbreakers and Bernie Sanders even wants to see terrorists, murderers and rapists vote.

Our leftists friends will deny the truth, but that is what they do all of the time.

That's an extraordinarily misleading article. The numbers are distorted by the fact pointed in the excerpt you posted - that non citizens make up 92% of convictions for immigration offences. Of course non-citizens commit most crimes related to immigration. Many of these are crimes that citizens cannot commit, by definition.


Immigration offences make up more than a third of the offences under consideration. Excluding the immigration offences, non-citizens commited 6.79% of federal crimes according to my quick calculation. Which would be almost exactly in line with their proportion of the population.

You missed this:
"But they also committed other crimes at far higher rates than their 7 percent proportion of the population as a whole.

The article title is at least a little misleading. Or at least playing on what most people think of when they hear "federal crime!".

Looks like 34% of that 42% is just talking about the rascals who sneak across the border or violate their visas.
