The nice thing about writing about immigration is that you will never lack for material to write about. There’s almost too much stuff. For example:

A 25-page report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics shows that non-citizens accounted for 64 percent of arrests for federal offenses in 2018.

The report showed a complete flip from 1998 when 63 percent of arrests for federal offenses were of U.S. citizens. In 2018, 64 percent of arrests for federal offenses were non-citizens.

Non-U.S. citizens make up roughly seven percent of the U.S. population, according to the 2017 U.S. Census Bureau, but non-U.S. citizens still “accounted for 15% of all federal arrests and 15% of prosecutions in U.S. district court for non-immigration crimes in 2018,” per the report.

Oh gee gosh, you don’t say. Importing Third Worlders from countries that have even higher homicide rates than the United States isn’t making us safer? How could that be? And, ”Shut up racist!” while we’re at it.

I would be interested in a breakdown of which crimes they are being convicted of. Are there a lot of “re-entry after deportation” cases counted in this? If so, did the illegal aliens get deported the first time because of criminal arrests at the local level (non-federal)?
