The crime rate among illegal immigrants in Arizona is twice that of other residents, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday, citing a new report based on conviction data.

The report, from the Crime Prevention Research Center, used a previously untapped set of data from Arizona that detailed criminal convictions and found that illegal immigrants between 15 and 35 are less than 3 percent of the state’s population, but nearly 8 percent of its prison population.

And the crimes they were convicted of were, on the whole, more serious, said John R. Lott Jr., the report’s author and president of the research center.

His findings also challenge the general narrative that immigrants commit fewer crimes. Those past studies usually don’t look at legal versus illegal populations, Mr. Lott said.

    GET RID OF ALL OF THEM, I DO NOT OWE THEM ONE THING. SEND THEM BACK TO THEIR ORIGIONAL COUNTRY, PERHAPS THEY CAN HELP STRAIGHTEN THAT COUNTRY UP INSTEAD OF TEARING OURS DOWN. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW ONE DIME OF OUR TAX MONEY GO TO ANY ILLEGAL. IF YOU DO ALLOW ANY TO STAY HERE, THEN THE ONES THAT STAY HAS TO BE WORKING AND DRAWING NO GOVERNMENT HELP.

    “His findings also challenge the general narrative that immigrants commit fewer crimes.” How dare he attack “common knowledge” and perceptions with facts? Number lie, when they disprove theories held by the left. Democrats recently spent more than a year untold dollars trying to show how easy it was to illegally buy a gun and their operative failed every time. No major announcement about that one, was there? Same here: Conservative sites like this one will reinforce the (correct)belief of high rates by those who have already ignored laws and committed crimes, but you will NEVER hear these findings in the MSM as it does NOT fit their narrative and might just support the idea of a border wall.

    Affirmation that we are inheriting the slime of Mexico and other countries thanks to the Obamanation, sanctuary cities, and other liberal fools.
