Immigrants found less likely to commit crimes

Independent, UK - An increased number of immigrants in the US might have contributed to an historic drop in crime rates, according to a new study. Research also shows that immigrants are less likely than US-born citizens to commit crimes and be imprisoned.

Both reports cast doubt on President Donald Trump’s and his administration’s populist rhetoric that immigrants and particularly undocumented immigrants are more likely to commit violent crimes.

Undocumented immigrants in the US have risen from 3.5 million in 1990 to 11.1 million in 2014. Yet a report from criminal research and advocacy group the Sentencing Project suggested that rising immigration may have even contributed to “an historic drop in crime rates” in that time.

These findings were backed up by a report from the libertarian Cato Institute, which looked at how many people were in prison by migratory status, ethnicity and gender, and found that “all immigrants are less likely to be incarcerated than natives relative to their shares of the population”.

Funny, how these studies are trotted out to make certain political points - right on time I see.

Maybe they missed the figure from the US Bureau of Prison of how just over 20% of all inmates are non-citizens.

I'm sure that wasn't their non-citizens fault. I'm sure the "studies" will find a way to blame the citizens for that as well!

The organization is North Carolinians For Immigration Reform and Enforcement (NCFIRE) (, facebook, twitter, gab).

Q: What sources did you use to come up with these numbers?

A: We use actual NC Sheriff, NC Police and NC Highway Patrol arrest records which are public information in NC. I personally scan several thousand arrest records every day to compile our information. In a month’s time, I literally scan 10’s of thousands of arrest records. (These are total arrest records, not simply illegal alien arrest records)
