Criminality of Immigrants

According to a report by "The Hill", "immigrants commit crimes and are incarcerated at a much lower rate than U.S. citizens, according to two separate studies released this week."

That statement is misleading due to an abuse of statistics. Any sociological assertion must present results by ethnicity and race because differences in culture and genetics produce starkly different behaviors.

The report mentions 2 studies. The first study was done by The Sentencing Project. This study should be ignored because it avoids presenting the results by ethnicity and race.

The second study was done by the Cato Institute. This study presents results by ethnicity and race and is worthy of our consideration.

The Cato Institute shows that immigrants are incarcerated at a lower rate than natives for each ethnicity or race. This study also shows that Africans and Hispanics of the 2nd and later generations are incarcerated at a much higher rate than (1) Africans and Hispanics of the 1st generation (i.e., the immigrant generation) and (2) Asians and Europeans of all generations.

Africans and Hispanics who are immigrants fear being deported back to the inferior countries created by their native cultures. So, these people behave properly upon entry into the United States. The 2nd generation of Africans and Hispanics are safe from deportation, so they behave improperly and become criminals.

Both Africans and Hispanics are less likely to assimilate than Europeans and Asians. Uncontrolled immigration from Latin America threatens the United States.

According to a report by "The Economist", "[In Chicago,] Mexicans are by far the biggest group, accounting for about 80% of the city’s 803,000 Hispanics. Puerto Ricans are the second-biggest group, followed by a medley of Central Americans. ... Gangs, which have tens of thousands of members, are omnipresent in Latino neighbourhoods."
