This data is inconvenient for those who are saying illegal aliens are not responsible for crime and should be automatically integrated into society. But for some people facts and rational debate don't matter.
Tucker Carlson Reveals Shocking New Gov't Statistic Democrats Don't Want You to Hear
On Tucker Carlson Tonight, the host addressed the left's repeated refrain that illegal aliens are actually a boon to America: hard-working, conscientious, and even more law-abiding than the average American citizen. "Not only are immigrants more virtuous than you are," Carlson says the left claims, "but they are safer to be around. In other words, stop complaining. They are your superiors."
But is this argument true? "Are people who are in this country precisely because they were willing to break our immigration laws really less likely to break other kinds of laws? It doesn't make a lot of sense." Reliable statistics don't seem to exist, he adds.
Until today. "We now for the first time have the actual numbers," Carlson says, referring to new statistics from the U.S. Sentencing Commission.
"Non-citizens are actually far more likely to commit serious crimes than Americans are," the stats reveal. Immigrants commit 22 percent or more than a fifth of all federal murder convictions, for example.
Carlson goes on to relate more eye-opening statistics which demonstrate that immigrants commit a "massively disproportionate amount of crime. Not even close. No, immigrants are not more law-abiding and less dangerous than Americans... Non-citizens are more likely to be arrested, convicted, and imprisoned for serious crimes than people who were born here. Much more likely."
