As noted in the previous section, many of the violent crimes being committed by illegal aliens are sexual crimes. This section will deal with that aspect of the crimes.
Researcher Deborah Schurman-Kauflin Ph.D. of the Violent Crimes Institute, reports on the analysis of 1,500 violent crimes from January 1999 through April 2006 that included serial rapes, serial murders, sexual homicides and child molestation committed by illegal aliens. The data is found in her report, The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants in the United States, which notes that, based on a figure of 12 million illegal immigrants and the fact that more of this population is male than average, sex offenders among illegal aliens are a higher percentage than sex offenders in the general population.
The study breaks down the 1,500 cases reviewed this way:
· 525, or 35 %, were child molestations
· 358, or 24 %, were rapes
· 617, or 41 %, were sexual homicides and serial murders
Of the child molestations, 47% of the victims were Hispanic, 36% Caucasian, 8% Asian, 6% African American and 3% other nationalities. In 82% of the cases the victims were known to their attackers. "In those instances, the illegal immigrants typically gained access to the victims after having worked as a day laborer at or near the victims' homes," she says. "Victims ranged in age from 1 year old to 13 years old, with the average age being 6."
In her examination of the sex-related homicides, Schurman-Kauflin noted:
“The murders were the worst of the sex crimes and were especially vicious. The most common method was for an offender to break into a residence and ambush his victims. Not only were victims raped, but some (6%) were mutilated. The crime scenes were very bloody, expressing intense, angry perpetrator personalities. Specifically, most victims were blitzed, rendered incapable of fighting back, and then raped and murdered. The most common method of killing was bludgeoning, followed by stabbing. Caucasians were more likely to become victims of sexual homicide committed by illegal immigrants. Hispanics were second, and African Americans were third.”
Schurman-Kauflin states that the illegal alien population includes 240,000 sex offenders – a “conservative estimate,” she says. She goes on to say, "This translates to 93 sex offenders and 12 serial sexual offenders coming across U.S. borders illegally per day." She points out the 1,500 offenders in her study had a total of 5,999 victims, an average of four victims for each sex offender and says, "This places the estimate for victimization numbers around 960,000 for the 88 months examined in this study.”
Annualizing the results, that is 130,909 sex crimes committed annually by illegal aliens – crimes that never would have happened if they weren’t here. This is part of the collateral damage of tolerating illegal immigration.
The affects of sexual crimes are far greater than just the crime itself. As noted in Victim costs of violent crime and resulting injuries:
“For example, an estimated 10 percent of rape victims suffer from severely disabling psychological injury, and 40 percent suffer from emotional distress severe enough to require mental health treatment beyond initial counseling.”
Schurman-Kauflin concludes that illegal alien criminals “gradually commit worse crimes and are continually released back into society or deported. Those who were deported simply returned illegally again," she says. (emphasis added)
For another glimpse into the soul of these perverts see the report Homicidal Sex Offenders: Psychological, Phallometric and Diagnostic Features published in the Journal of American Academy Psychiatry and Law. Also see the report from New Zealand, Storm Warning – Statistical Models for Predicting Violence, for more information on the type of people we are simply allowing to stroll into our country to prey on American women and children.
The Schurman-Kauflin study noted that “Nearly 63% of the offenders had been deported on another offense prior to the sex crime.” (emphasis added) Note the word “deported,” something that often comes up when we are talking about the crimes committed by illegal aliens. That means they were once removed from the country but came back in again to commit the crime! In this case, lack of any serious border security allowed the additional crime to happen – an additional 82,473 sex crimes – per year!
Is having 130,909 sex crimes committed against women and children per year acceptable collateral damage to tolerate illegal immigration and save ten cents on a head of lettuce?
When 63% sexual crimes are a result of basically having little to no border security, are 82,473 victims per year acceptable collateral damage for the savings of not having proper border security? If so, can you tell that to the victims and their families?
That means not spending a few billion on proper border security allowed all those crimes to happen. As we saw in the previous section, each crime has economic consequences. Rape plus other injury crime costs society $97,205 in 2006 dollars. A sexual molestation was not listed but murders had an even far greater cost. Using $50,000 as the average total economic impact, that means that just the 82,473 sexual crimes that were committed by previously deported illegal alien sex perverts who simply strolled back in to commit more crime cost us $4.1 BILLION. That is each and every year.
In any case, does this sound like a victimless crime? Even if Schurman-Kauflin is off by a factor of two, that is still 65,455 victims. Per year. And remember, 63% of those crimes would have been prevented if we simply controlled who was coming across our borders and all of them would have never happened if there were no illegal aliens in the USA.
Returning to the FBI’s statistics in the CRIME section and combining the Forcible rapes and Offenses against family & children there are 154,656 crimes. If even half of Schurman-Kauflin’s estimate, 65,455 sexual crimes, was committed by illegal aliens that would be a 42% participation. This is obviously way over a straight 5% representation, and much higher than the 15.3% conservative estimate for involvement in murders, and even the 27% incarceration rate. As we will see later, the involvement in some traffic accidents is even higher than that for murders and in some cases is comparable to the 42%. Regardless, is this what DR. Schurman-Kauflin’s means by “sex offenders among illegal aliens are a higher percentage than sex offenders in the general population?”
While the involvement is probably a few times higher than representation, some of the large disparity, can be explained by noting that many (47%) of the sexual related crimes are committed against other Hispanics, as Schurman-Kauflin pointed out. While Schurman-Kauflin’s report doesn’t differentiate it, most likely the vast majority of the crimes being committed against Hispanics were committed against Hispanic illegal aliens where the perpetrator was victimizing people in his own illegal alien community. Again, nobody knows because NOBODY IS TRACKING IT.
Another factor that skews the number of reported sexual crimes is that the National Crime Victimization Survey does not interview victims under age 12, which will result in underreporting of sexual crimes, especially in the Hispanic illegal alien communities.
As noted earlier in this section, and as we shall also see in the CULTURAL DIFFERENCES section, while many domestic violence crimes in the illegal alien community are not reported, the tendency to commit sexual crimes is also embedded in the culture. Regardless, the numbers indicate a serious problem that needs further investigation because, while as bad as a 5% participation is, if the participation is actually just three times as much it indicates a very serious and growing risk for American women and children.
In any case, what if Schurman-Kauflin is correct and there are actually 130,909 sexual crimes being committed annually by illegal aliens? If so, how much do you think we should be spending on proper border security to prevent it?
Many Americans will pay a bit for non-polluting “green power” from their local energy provider. How much more should we pay for lettuce if it saved a quarter of the children from being molested or raped? What would YOU pay for lettuce to save 50% of the children? How much more would YOU pay for lettuce to keep a thousand women from being raped? What would YOU pay to save ten thousand women from being raped?
In terms of sexual crimes being committed by illegal aliens, exactly how much collateral damage is acceptable to you to save ten cents on a head of lettuce?
The Schurman-Kauflin report, The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants in the United States, concludes:
“Illegal immigrants who commit sex crimes first cross the U.S. border illegally. Then they gradually commit worse crimes and are continually released back into society or deported. Those who were deported simply returned illegally again. Only 2% of the offenders in this study has no history of criminal behavior, beyond crossing the border illegally. There is a clear pattern of criminal escalation. From misdemeanors such as assault or DUI, to drug offenses, illegal immigrants who commit sex crimes break U.S. laws repeatedly. They are highly mobile, work in low skilled jobs with their hands, use drugs and alcohol, are generally promiscuous, have little family stability, and choose victims who are easy to attack. Their attacks are particularly brutal, and they use a hands-on method of controlling and/or killing their victims.” (emphasis added)
For an example of why is often so hard to catch arrest, and jail or deport these criminal illegal alien deviants, and for some insight on what happens in many cities and communities around the US, see Peggy O’Hare’s March 2003 article, Accused killer helped by 'hands-off' proviso, in the Houston Chronicle where she reports:
“In the months before three East End women were abducted, raped and slain last year, one of the accused killers, Walter Alexander Sorto, 25, was ticketed by Houston police several times for traffic violations.
Sorto was an illegal immigrant, having somehow managed to circumvent the usual ports of entry into this country, just like his accused companion in crime, Edgardo Rafael Cubas, 24. They remained below radar, undetected by immigration authorities until they were arrested for capital murder.
But had they crossed paths with Houston police before the violence -- as Sorto apparently did -- officers here might have been hamstrung anyway, barred by city rules from asking about their immigration status or reporting them to federal authorities.
Critics refer to this rule as a "sanctuary" policy. And Sorto is a pointed example of what frustrates some Houston police officers about the "hands-off" provision toward illegal immigrants.
…Though many major cities across the country have similar policies -- including New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego -- some rank-and-file officers have a problem with such restrictions.
…Houston police officer John Nickell is one of them. He complained about Houston's policy when he testified last week before a House Judiciary subcommittee during a hearing spurred by the rape of a New York woman in a Queens park last December.
Four of five men charged in that attack were in the country illegally. Three of them had been arrested by the New York Police Department before, but were later released instead of being turned over to federal authorities. The woman who was raped has now filed a lawsuit.”
See the January 2007 article, Illegals Become Repeat Criminals, by Jerry Seper in The Washington Times for more information on sanctuary cities and policies. Go to the February 2007, New American article, Illegal Immigrants in a State of Disarray, by Kurt Williamsen to see how sanctuary policies are working in Wisconsin’s Department of Motor Vehicles.
Subsequently, Sorto is the prime suspect in the abduction of 13-year-old Laura Ayala from outside her southeast Houston apartment. Blood evidence recently linked Ayala's disappearance to Sorto and his two companions that were accused in the East End slayings, though none of them have been charged. Laura Ayala has not been seen since and her body has not been recovered.
When the MSM was in a dither over the sexual crimes committed by Marc Foley against consenting and almost of age pages, who shed a tear for Laura Ayala who most likely died a long and excruciating death at the hands of multiple illegal alien sexual perverts?
Interestingly, few of even the most horrific sexual crimes are widely reported by the MSM and the fact that the perpetrators were illegal aliens was often ignored or downplayed when the incidents were actually reported. Some of the sex crimes committed by illegal aliens in the last few years are noted below. There are many, MANY more. In a few of the links below, the bylines were changed to reflect the actual facts. While there may be a few duplications, these are all separate incidents.
· Child-rape suspect tells police he has HIV (raped 5 year old and knew he had HIV)
Is that enough or do you need more? For more recent examples of the “victimless crime” terror being perpetrated by illegal aliens on American women and children go to Read This.
As noted, many of these heinous crimes are against children. How many children are being molested, raped, and murdered by illegal aliens? Nobody knows for sure but the numbers are staggering. To give you some idea of the prevalence of the crime, peruse the ICE Public Information News Releases.
While there are numerous reports of individual sexual predators such as Mexican Sex Offender and Six-Time Deportee in ICE Custody or Man Deported Following Conviction For Molesting 6-year-old, you will see many reports of multiple child predators being caught and deported. Some of them over the last two years are as follows:
In case you are interested, that is 250 illegal alien child molesters. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
When we talk about the costs to secure our borders, we need to ask “How many crimes against children is acceptable collateral damage?” Isn’t that what it is all about? Cheap lettuce versus molested, raped and murdered children - a cost/benefit tradeoff.
Occasionally the Federal Government decides to actually do something about some of the worst illegal alien criminals – after they are already here and have committed mayhem! When they do, they catch numerous illegal alien child predators and perverts.
Operation Predator evolved out of ICE's mission to find and deport some of the worst illegal alien sexual predators and deviants – the ones with the more heinous criminal records. The majority of the arrests under Operation Predator - roughly 85% - involved foreign nationals in this country whose child sex crimes made them removable from the United States. By matching immigration databases with state Megan's law directories, ICE agents arrested more than 1,800 registered illegal alien sex offenders.
Digressing for a moment, what the hell was a convicted, illegal alien sex offender even doing out of jail or not immediately deported – even if 63% do come right back - let alone roaming around the neighborhoods while on a registry! Has the judicial system in this country gone insane?
In any case, Operation Predator began on July 9, 2003, and resulted in 6,085 child predator arrests throughout the country - an average of roughly 250 arrests per month and eight arrests per day. While arrests have been made in every state, the most have occurred in these states: Arizona (207), California (1,578), Florida (255), Illinois (282), Michigan (153), Minnesota (190), New Jersey (423), New York (367), Oregon (148) and Texas (545).
While Operation Predator was a noble effort and ICE is to be commended, it only made a small dent in the criminal activity and number of horrific crimes being committed by illegal alien child sexual predators.
It is worth noting that some pedophile statistics report that each pedophile molests average of 148 children. If so, that could be as many as 900,580 victims from just the 6,085 illegal alien predators that were caught. Regardless, how many children being molested is acceptable collateral damage?
I’ll bet you did not have any idea the illegal aliens who are only coming here to “do the jobs Americans won’t” were also coming here to prey on American woman and children. How many illegal alien rapist and child molestors are there? While some like Dr. Schurman-Kauflin have made estimates, in fact NOBODY actually knows but as the information and examples in this report have detailed the number is considerable.
Another facet of sexual crimes is the fast growing “sex slave” crimes where illegal aliens kidnap, enslave, and sell the sexual services of young illegal alien women to other sexual deviants and perverts, foreign and domestic. This is a topic that is generally ignored when the MSM only report on illegal aliens doing the jobs that Americans don’t want to do.
As reported by Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D. of the Violent Crimes Institute in Profiling Sex Trafficking: Illegal Immigrants At Risk:
“Women and girls are trafficked from many countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. Mexico is the number one source for young female sex slaves in North America. Tlaxcala, in Central Mexico serves as a hotbed for slave traders. Young women and girls are abducted, tricked, and sometimes sold by poor families into a caged life. Highly prized are 12 year old girls sneaking across the border into the United States. The girls are grabbed by Los Lenones, aka pimps, and dragged to unfamiliar areas where they are ‘broken in.’ It is well known that this often occurs in Mexico. The initiation process entails 20-30 men per day having brutal sex with the girls and women. Victims are beaten, drugged, and repeatedly raped until their wills are broken. It is then that the sale is possible.
…. Entry into the U.S. is perceived to be relatively easy at the U.S./Mexico border. Thus, this is a main artery for this activity. Puerto Rico is another point of entry as there are only 23 U.S. border patrol for the entire island. Once individuals enter Puerto Rico, with fake paperwork, coming to the mainland is simple. This is a dangerous open back door to the U.S., and traffickers are taking notice.”
For more information on this growing problem see:
And then there are such things as: ICE DEPORTS LAST FOUR ILLEGAL ALIENS CONVICTED FOR SEX WITH 14-YEAR OLD MENTALLY DISABLED GIRL - Victim was prostituted by a relative; six other criminal aliens involved were previously deported
This is going on all around you and the politicians and MSM are …..quiet.
To see how extensive the problem is, visit the links in this section and peruse the ICE Public Information News Releases on the illegal alien sexual predators that are actually being caught and deported. Remember, until caught, they were roaming around in your city and neighborhood, preying on women and children, and that the ones actually caught are only a fraction of the ones still out there.
While blindly tolerating massive illegal immigration, horrific and numerous sexual crimes are part of the collateral damage being inflicted on Americans.
Exactly how many Americans are YOU willing to allow to be molested, raped, and murdered by illegal aliens to save ten cents on a head of lettuce?
As can be seen from the aforementioned studies and references, many illegal aliens are not your casual immigration violating, ID theft committing, law breaker. Many are recidivists – a.k.a. career criminals, like Juan Leonardo Quintero, who was deported after being convicted of indecency with a child, but who later came back and then just recently killed a Houston cop in cold blood, leaving a widow and five now fatherless children.
Many of the brutal crimes referenced in the two previous sections are gang related with the growing Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang being notoriously brutal in carrying out its criminal activities. How much crime is unknown because NOBODY IS TRACKING IT.
If you do not yet have any of the violent illegal alien gangs in your area, you might want to take note of US Undocumented Settling in New Areas where it noted that illegal aliens are moving away from traditional illegal immigrant enclaves and settling in mass in newer areas and a fairly recent Washington Times article, Gang follows illegal aliens, that noted:
“The violent MS-13 - or Mara Salvatrucha - street gang is following the migratory routes of illegal aliens across the country, FBI officials say, calling the Salvadoran gang the new American mafia.
MS-13, has a significant presence in the Washington area, and other gangs are spreading into small towns and suburbs by following illegal aliens seeking work in places such as Providence, R.I., and the Carolinas, FBI task force director Robert Clifford said. "The migrant moves and the gang follows," said Mr. Clifford, director of the agency's MS-13 National Gang Task Force.”
As reported by Known Gangs, one of the nation's leading private organizations specializing in gangs training and information, here is some information on one of the most violent gangs that has a very high illegal alien involvement, the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13):
In the 1980s, “A group of Salvadorian immigrants created a new gang calling themselves Mara Salvatrucha also known as MS-13. It is believed they got their name from combining the name of “La Mara,” a violent street gang in El Salvador with Salvatruchas, a term used to denote members of the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front. This was a group of Salvadorian peasants trained as guerilla fighters. The “13” was added to pay homage to the California prison gang, the Mexican Mafia.
Members of this newly formed gang soon engaged in violent criminal acts. They quickly became known as one of the most violent gangs in the area because many of their founding members had experience or training in guerilla warfare, thus gaining a level of sophistication that superseded their rivals.
Mara Salvatrucha has become Central America’s greatest problem. In addition to violent acts committed by the gang against citizens and gang rivalries, the gang has even engaged in organized violent acts against the government. In 1997 the son of Honduras President Ricardo Maduro was kidnapped and murdered by MS-13 members. MS-13 members have continued to taunt Central American government officials. Members also left a dismembered corpse with a note for the Honduras president that “more people will die… the next victims will be police and journalists.” In 2004, Guatemalan President Oscar Berger received a similar messages attached to the body of a dismembered man from MS-13 members.
In 2002 in the city of Tegucigalpa in the Honduras, MS-13 members boarded a public bus and immediately executed 28 people including 7 small children. Again, they left a message written on the front of the bus taunting government officials.
…Currently El Salvador has a murder rate of approximately 54 per every 100,000 people, while the United States murder rate is approximately 6 per every 100,000.
….MS-13 members in our country are known to be involved in all aspects of criminal activity. Some law enforcement sources have reported that because of their ties to their former homeland, MS-13 members have access to sophisticated weapons thus making firearms trafficking one of their many criminal enterprises.
Despite their access to weaponry, there have been many high-profile murders and assaults in which MS-13 have used machetes to attack their victims.
The federal government has increased efforts to locate and deport illegal MS-13 members living in our nation but with the lack of cooperation from many cities whom support sanctuaries policies, has made the government’s job an uphill battle.”
As noted in Gangs Or Us, “Since there are no “precise” statistics, it is difficult to estimate the number of cliques or the number of members. It has been estimated that MS-13 has over 15,000 members and associates in at least 115 different cliques in 33 states, and these numbers are continually increasing.”
These gangs are not your Mafia of the past that had a “criminal code of conduct” that was enforced by the Godfather. As noted in ICE Deports Teenage Hondruran Gang Member - Gang sexually assaulted 2 girls in suspected initiation rite at vacant Maryland apartment:
“A 17-year-old Honduran citizen and MS-13 gang member convicted as an adult for participating in the sexual assault of two teenage girls in Maryland was deported today by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Reinaldo Ramos-Ramos, an illegal alien who entered the United States in June 2002 by crossing the Southwestern border, was one of 10 gang members who sexually assaulted the minor girls, ages 16 and 17, inside a vacant Adelphi, Md. apartment March 14, 2003.
The assaults might have been a savage gang initiation rite that calls for female gang prospects to either endure being "jumped in" through a beating by gang members, or be "sexed in" by multiple male gang members.“
Although notable, don’t think that the illegal alien crime wave is just a Mexican or Salvadorian problem. Also see:
for information on equal opportunity illegal alien gangsters.
What is on the horizon if we don’t get serious? A November 29, 2006 article in the Washington Post Foreign Service, Surge in Violence Shocks Even Weary Mexico - Drug Killings Nearly Doubled In Past Year, reports:
“…A hit man had decapitated Sauzo's son, then chopped off his arms and legs. The killer was so unconcerned about being brought to justice that he scrawled his own name and nickname -- "El Barby" -- on a note left with the mutilated corpse.
Still, Sauzo's mother, Cristina Gomez, didn't bother to go to the police. "Why waste my time?" she said in an interview. "This is the way it is in a town without laws."
Gomez's reaction and the audacity of Sauzo's murder - one of 11 decapitations in the state of Guerrero this year and one of 2,000 killings in a nationwide war between rival drug cartels - are symptomatic of the unraveling of the rule of law that has plagued Mexico for years.
But in the past year, the number of spectacularly gruesome killings and the intensity of civil unrest have spiked to such alarming levels that even Mexicans who were once hardened by years of violence are shocked.
…The bulk of the violence is the result of a barbaric, five-year war between Mexican drug cartels which are now approaching the strength and size of the notorious Colombian cartels of the 1980s. Drug killings have nearly doubled in the past year; in a single incident this month, six police officers were fatally shot in the troubled state of Michoacan.
…."We have a huge problem, a problem that exists throughout the country; it's difficult, complicated, dynamic," said Juan Heriberto Salinas Alt’, a retired army general who serves as Guerrero state's public security director. "It's something we've never seen before."
….In Guerrero, a southern Mexican state best known for its Acapulco resorts, drug killings have ballooned from 32 at this point last year to 281, according to Salinas Alt’s, the public security director. Only a handful of those murders have been solved because of "a high level of police corruption," he said.
…Tamayo Hernendez, known as workaholic family man, was found Nov. 10 naked and dead in a cheap roadside motel room. That day, a Tijuana police chief was shot to death. A headline in the Mexico City newspaper El Universal called it "A Normal Day in the Country," and in an editorial, the paper lamented that "bit by bit, murder by murder, the country is winning an international reputation for danger."
As noted in Mexico's Drug Wars Heat Up “In the once-chic beach resort of Acapulco, the severed heads of two police officers who had been clamping down on drug traffickers were found a few months ago with a note attached: "So that you learn to respect." The grisly method soon caught on. In August alone, four more heads accompanied by threatening notes appeared in the central Mexican state of Michoacán.”
In any case, these are some of the criminal illegal aliens that are freely coming across the southern border to set up shop and operations in America. How serious is the problem? In answer to that question, you might want to check out what Congressman Tom Tancredo says about the problem as noted in a World Net Dailey report, Mexican drug cartels take over U.S. cities.
For further information, see: Gang expert backs Tancredo charges - Retired cop says Mexican drug cartels rig elections to take over U.S. cities, as well as the videos:
The Threat Next Door (MS13)
Latino Gangs on the Rise (in Memphis)
Finally, don’t think the gang problem is just a male illegal alien problem. For some insights into female gang members, see The changing face of gangs - Dramatic increases in gang activity nationwide include a strong, rising female presence.
For some more information on the growing gang problem, see some of the references in the previous sections as well as:
As just a quick peruse of the title of the links indicates, note the involvement in sexual crimes. I’ll bet you didn’t see gang rape initiation rites in the Godfather movies or on the Sopranos. These are not the gangs that Elliot Ness was battling.
If income tax evasion was the only collateral damage being inflicted we could probably tolerate this aspect of illegal immigration, but gang rapes?
While we passively tolerate the illegal alien invasion, this is more collateral damage of illegal immigration to save ten cents on a head of lettuce.
While this report has attempted to put a personal face on the collateral damage of illegal alien crime, note that many of the links in this report detailing some of the crime are dependent on the archiving time of some of the various sources making their articles available. Once taken down, many of the crimes simply “disappear” from American consciousness.
As an example, I’m willing to bet that most people living outside of the Denver metro are not aware that in the fall of 1999 five Asian gang members, illegal aliens as it was reported many years latter, kidnapped and gang raped a University of Colorado coed. Initiation rites were involved and they specifically targeted a “white woman.”
If it wasn’t for the archiving efforts of some groups fighting illegal immigration general knowledge of such incidents would be lost to all but the most serious researcher. Even with the internet it is very difficult to track down and report the participation level of illegal aliens in crime because NOBODY IS KEEPING TRACK! However, as this report has detailed and documented, it is quite considerable and is the direct consequence of our unfettered immigration policy, porous borders, sanctuary cities, and lack of enforcement.
In recent Testimony of District Attorney John M. Morganelli before the House Subcommittee on immigration, Border, Security and Claims he stated:
“Unfortunately, the majority of illegal aliens who are here are engaged in criminal activity. Identity theft, use of fraudulent social security numbers and green cards, tax evasion, driving without licenses represent some of the crimes that are engaged in by the majority of illegal aliens on a daily basis merely to maintain and hide their illegal status.
In addition, violent crime and drug distribution and possession is also prevalent among illegal aliens. Over 25% of today's federal prison population are illegal aliens. In some areas of the country, 12% of felonies, 25% of burglaries and 34% of thefts are committed by illegal aliens." (emphasis added)
Ignoring the “minor crime” such as ID theft and property crimes being committed by illegal aliens, here is a summary on some of the collateral damage reaped in crimes as a result of tolerating illegal aliens in the USA:
· In Los Angeles, 95% of some 1,500 outstanding warrants for homicides are for illegal aliens. About 67% of the 17,000 outstanding fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.
· There are currently over 400,000 unaccounted for illegal alien criminals with outstanding deportation orders. At least one fourth of these are hard core criminals.
· 80,000 to 100,000 illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes are walking the streets. Based on studies they will commit an average of 13 serious crimes per perpetrator.
· Illegal aliens are involved in criminal activities at a rate that appears to be 2-5 times their representative proportion of the population.
· In 1980, our Federal and state facilities held fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens but at the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in U.S. correctional facilities at a cost of about $6.8 billion per year.
· At least 4.5 million pounds of cocaine with a street value of at least $72 billion is smuggled across the southern border every year. ..
· 56% of illegal aliens charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.
· Illegal aliens charged with unlawful reentry had the most extensive criminal histories. 90% had been previously arrested. Of those with a prior arrest, 50% had been arrested for violent or drug-related felonies.
· Illegal aliens commit 1,172,036 or more crimes per year.
· Illegal aliens commit at least 2,158 murders each year – a number that represents three times greater participation than their proportion of the population. The number could be as high as 4,380 murders per year which would be a rate that is 5.4 times representation.
· Illegal alien sexual predators commit an estimated 130,909 sexual crimes each year.
· There may be as many as 240,000 illegal alien sex offenders circulating throughout America. Based on studies, they will commit an average of 8 sex crimes per perpetrator before being caught.
· Nearly 63% of illegal alien sex offenders had been previously deported on another offense prior to committing the sex crime.
· Only 2% of the illegal alien sex offenders in one study had no history of criminal behavior, beyond crossing the border illegally.
· In Operation Predator, ICE arrested and deported 6,085 illegal alien pedophiles. Some studies suggest each pedophile molests average of 148 children. If so, that could be as many as 900,580 victims.
· Nobody knows how big the Sex Slave problem is but it is enormous.
· The very brutal MS-13 gang has over 15,000 members and associates in at least 115 different cliques in 33 states.
· The crimes of the 270,000 incarcerated illegal aliens cost society as much as $432 Billion.
· The overall financial impact of illegal alien criminals currently walking the streets of America cost somewhere between $14.4 and $437 billion – PER YEAR.
Still think illegal immigration is a “victimless crime” and we don’t need to control our borders? Remember, about 60% of the crimes being committed are by illegal aliens who were previously deported.
Allowing our borders to be disregarded coupled with little national commitment about doing anything about it has resulted in growing mayhem by illegal alien criminals, not a “victimless crime.”
As the previous sections have detailed, the dark side of illegal immigration includes a lot of horrific crime being perpetrated by the hard core criminal element of the illegal alien population. In the cost-benefit tradeoff of tolerating illegal immigration, how much collateral damage are we willing to accept?
In tolerating illegal immigration, how many Americans do YOU accept being molested, raped and murdered each year to save ten cents on a head of lettuce?
