Texas Governor Rick Perry claims illegal aliens are causing big crime in Texas.

3,000 Homicides & 8,000 Sexual Assaults.

203,000 illegals booked and jailed in last 5 years.

Not a real big problem right?

How big is the illegal alien crime problem ?



Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border.
Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis.

“Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

Rick Perry is a moron. Where's his proof? Where do these numbers come from? I remember you cited some easily discredited statistics the other day that had originated with Steve King and have been repeated by the likes of that halfwit Sean Hannity.

I listened to it earlier. He doesn't cite any references for his numbers. So:

1. Where is Rick Perry coming up with these numbers?
2. How many of these crimes happened in America?
3. How many of the victims were other illegal immigrants? People who won't contact the police for fear of deportation.

We could destroy the cartels tomorrow. End the fake War on Drugs. Treatment instead of incarceration. Mexican drug cartels operate to serve the American illicit drug market.

EDIT:

Marijuana decriminalization and legalization is already hurting the cartels.

VICE News - Legal Pot in the US Is Crippling Mexican Cartels


The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that pot farmers in the Sinaloa region have stopped planting due to a massive drop in wholesale prices, from $100 per kilo down to only $25. One farmer is quoted as saying: “It’s not worth it anymore. I wish the Americans would stop with this legalization.”



“Is it hurting the cartels? Yes. The cartels are criminal organizations that were making as much as 35-40 percent of their income from marijuana,” Nelson said, “They aren’t able to move as much cannabis inside the US now.”

You know it's not politically correct to point out that illegals commit crimes while they are here don't you xuenchen??

You are supposed to say that the Americans do it too, so a few more certainly aren't making a drastic difference. Either that or you are supposed to propose a plan of how we can "love" the crime out of them. Maybe even fess up to forcing them to have to commit those crimes in some way or another.

You have not followed proper politically correct protocol at all.

I'm disappointed in you.

I bet it could be close.

Even half would be a problem.

Even a few dozen is a problem.

He's not on ATS. He doesn't have to show you anything.

On top of that, consider that he's about to make a bid for the Presidency. Do you not think his facts have not been checked ... and re-checked.

Other than you, who's calling him out?

There are plenty of other things the cartels will do if they are not making enough off of the drugs.

It has nothing to do with 'PC' at all but thanks for playing the victim right off the bat! It's a simple question: is the illegal immigrant population responsible for disproportionately more crime or not? In particular, how many crimes are they responsible for committing against American citizens?

If they are responsible for less crimes against American citizens than a similarly sized group of Americans, then they are less of a threat to you or I than our fellow citizens.

I dunno where he gets his numbers from,but in my little town,in a neighborhood of about 70 houses,there have been 8 murders in the last 10 years,3 by driveby all by illegals.Things have quieted down now it seems,I think they have thinned each other out.Maybe not a big problem in the Northeast,but a big problem in the Southwest.

When an illegal alien comes into this country he is automatically a criminal.

Politifact gives his statement a "Pants on Fire"

Always ask where the numbers come from. Why do you assume that Rick Perry is telling the truth — because he's too stupid to lie? He's got a history of lying like most politicians.

You're welcome. Any time.

Any extra crime is just that. EXTRA. It is a crime that would not be committed if one was not here illegally. We can agree to disagree with whether that's ok or not. But one illegal committing one crime is one more crime that would NOT have been committed had they not been here.

EXTRA.

Out of all the things we need in the US right now... Extra crime is not one of them.

Is that a violent crime like homicide or sexual assault? This thread is clearly about hyping the the threat to American citizens posed by violent criminals within the illegal immigrant population.

It seems that some here are just apologists for criminal illegal aliens.

You're not making any sense. Perhaps we should stop having children because they might grow up to commit crimes? Think it through. If illegal immigrants commit fewer violent crimes, particularly against American citizens, they're actually driving down your risk of being a victim.

Apologist for what? I'm just denying ignorance. Do you support irrational fear mongering?

I don't support more restrictive gun laws every time some nutjob goes on a shooting spree either. Same thing — irrational fear mongering.

Hmmm.

Seems PolitiFact (ultra-Left Wing) may have missed a few things.

That chart seems to tell a worse story eh.

I say the Governor may be accurate after all.
