There has been a lie fed to the public that illegal migrants commit less crime than the native-born population. Quite why the left thought it a good idea to promote this idea seems idiotic (are they suggesting that we denigrate native-born in favor of illegals?) But new conviction data has blown this myth out of the water.
You see, in previous assertions, the data between legal migrants and illegal migrants were counted together. Newly released Conviction Data shows that ILLEGAL Migrants commit more crimes than the native population and that these crimes tend to be more serious.
The report's author, John C Lott, said:
“There appears to be a huge difference between the two groups,” he said. “The type of person who goes through the process to legally immigrate in the United States appears to be very law-abiding versus even the U.S.-born population.”
This is final proof that we should have a control immigration strategy. Legal migrants are law-abiding and have a stake in this country, and as such should be welcomed. Illegal migrants are not and do not (not all of them, of course), and the report shows that they are a danger to a safe society.
It's time for Conservatives to start making the case for not putting all migrants into one basket (of Deplorables?). The left want to conflate legal and illegal because they don't actually care about migrants, they just care about votes and getting those who they say they will protect to support them.
