Sanctuary city illegals have committed tens of thousands of violent crimes July 13, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, disaster, episcopate, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, Immigration, It's all about the $$$, scandals, self-serving, Society, the struggle for the Church.
For those in the Church who support the “sanctuary city” initiative, perhaps they would like to explain why it is such a good thing to have a program that keeps tens of thousands of violent felons on the loose in this country when the vast majority would have been otherwise deported. Perhaps our bishops can remind us again of the great virtue of utterly unconstrained immigration over the southern border – which the strongly advocate – even at the cost of tens (by now, hundreds) of thousands of violent crimes committed against American citizens by illegal aliens.
This is one the sides of amnesty you don’t often hear about:
What seems to have been overlooked in the back and forth on this is some of the very disturbing, actual data on crimes committed by illegal aliens, which should concern every American—particularly those who live in sanctuary cities like New Orleans or San Francisco that release criminal aliens rather than turning them over to the Department of Homeland Security.
As Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Study outlines, Department of Homeland Security records show that in just one eight-month period in 2014, more than 8,100 deportable aliens were released by sanctuary jurisdictions. Three thousand of them were felons and 62 percent had a prior criminal record. Nineteen hundred were later rearrested a total of 4,300 times on 7,500 different offenses.
Thus, these sanctuary policies directly victimized thousands of the residents of these sanctuary cities who were subjected to assaults, burglaries, sexual assaults, thefts and even murders that would not have occurred except for these sanctuary policies……..
……..The second GAO report (GAO-05-646R), released on May 9, 2005, looked at the crimes committed by 55,322 aliens who “had entered the country illegally and were still illegally in the country at the time of their incarceration in federal or state prison or local jail during fiscal year 2003.”
The path of destruction weaved by these 55,322 illegal aliens was truly shocking. According to GAO, these criminal aliens:
- Were arrested a total of 459,614 times, averaging about eight arrests per illegal alien;…..
- Out of all of the arrests, 12 percent were for violent crimes such as murder, robbery, assault and sex-related crimes; 15 percent were for burglary, larceny, theft and property damage; 24 percent were for drug offenses; and the remaining offenses were for DUI, fraud, forgery, counterfeiting, weapons, immigration and obstruction of justice; and
- 80 percent of the arrests occurred in just three states: California, Texas, and Arizona…….
If the over 134,000 aliens released by the administration in just the past two years follow the pattern of those aliens studied by the GAO in 2005, they will commit hundreds of thousands of more crimes, victimizing countless innocent Americans in crimes that could have been prevented.
Indeed, they will commit nearly 20,000 violent crimes – in addition to all those crimes committed by felons protected by the numerous sanctuary cities in the US.
Here’s another less than pleasant statistic – nearly 10% of all fatal DUI collisions involve an illegal resident of the United States.
If you take the statistics together, far more Americans have been killed by illegal aliens over the past few years than have died in 9/11 and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
But because the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, US Chamber of Commerce, large corporations, a good number of very wealthy individuals, and the demonrat party all believe their interests served by cheap foreign labor and and unconstrained immigration environment, that is what we shall get, the will of the people be damned, in this “last, best hope for freedom and democracy.”
Just keep telling yourself that.
