Study: Immigrants commit fewer crimes than native citizens

Dallas News - An analysis by the libertarian Cato Institute shows that unauthorized immigrants and legal immigrants in Texas commit proportionally fewer crimes than the native-born population.

The study found that unauthorized immigrants had a criminal conviction rate 56 percent below that of the native-born people, said Alex Nowrasteh, a Cato immigration analyst and the study’s author.

“And that tells us this is not a population that commits a lot of crime,” Nowrasteh said. “If it is true of Texas, it has got to be true in much of the United States."
