Pressure on “sanctuary cities” .
During the week of January 29, 2017, through February 3, 2017, ICE issued 3,083 detainers throughout the United States. The following table reflects the jurisdictions that do not comply with detainers on a routine basis, which had the highest volume of detainers issued during the reporting period (157 to these ten jurisdictions during the reporting period.
In a move to put public pressure on “sanctuary cities,” the Department of Homeland Security on Monday published a list of 118 localities that have refused to cooperate with federal requests to detain undocumented immigrants.President Trump ordered the department to publish a weekly list of all detention requests turned down by local jails, listing the agency, the undocumented immigrants and the charges they face. In an executive order signed Jan. 25, Trump said the list is necessary to “better inform the public regarding the public safety threats associated with sanctuary jurisdictions.”
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly ordered Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to start producing the list last month, and on Monday, the agency issued its first public report.
It lists 206 cases in which undocumented immigrants were arrested on local charges and were set to be released from jails. ICE officials requested that the local authorities hold onto those people for up to 48 hours — a request known as a “detainer” — but the requests were denied. USAToday

The studies cited by CNN and the New York Times were from 1997 and 2007 and looked at legal immigrants. They are fabricating a false narrative that illegal immigrants commit fewer crimes than American citizens to attack President Trump’s immigration policies.
Deal with it, Democrats: illegal immigrants commit crime far more often than legal immigrants.
Six days after President Trump was inaugurated as our 45th President, the typing wizards at the New York Times got a little desperate. We’re talking nail biting; chain-smoking; shot-pounding nervous.
So they made a story. Days before President Trump’s first address to Congress—CNN and Vox copied the New York Times’ yellow journalism. Their big story: ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE HARDWORKING TAXPAYERS WHO RARELY COMMIT CRIMES. (Too bad it was also a big lie.)
Contradictions and fallacies immediately jump out at you. For example, from the New York Times:
“A central point of an executive order President Trump signed on Wednesday — and a mainstay of his campaign speeches — is the view that undocumented immigrants pose a threat to public safety. But several studies, over many years, have concluded that immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than people born in the United States. And experts say the available evidence does not support the idea that undocumented immigrants commit a disproportionate share of crime [emphasis added].”
Besides conflating legal immigration with illegal immigration, the Times cites “several studies” making the same conflation. Most notably, a 2007 Rutgers University paper that analyzes crime rates of legal immigrants. So besides being out-of-date, the paper does not offer us any research on illegal immigrant crime rates.

The USA has over 11 million illegal aliens within its borders. Of these millions of people there are bound to be some criminals among them.

The illegal immigrants population is a major contributor to federal crimes in America.
Federal sentences in 2014:
- Almost 3/4 of drug possession were illegal immigrants.
- 20 percent of the kidnapping/hostage taking sentences were illegal immigrants.
- 12 percent of the murder sentences were illegal immigrants.
- 19.4 percent of national-defense related sentences were illegal immigrants. WashingtonExaminer
Researcher Deborah Schurman-Kauflin Ph.D. of the Violent Crimes Institute 12 month in-depth study of 1,500 violent crimes from January 1999 through April 2006 included serial rapes, serial murders, sexual homicides and child molestation committed by illegal immigrants.
1,500 cases reviewed in the study:
- 525 (35 %) were child molestations
- 358 (24 %) were rapes
- 617 (41 %) were sexual homicides and serial murders
More of the illegal immigrant population is male, sex offenders among illegal immigrants are a higher percentage than sex offenders in the general population.
When examining ICE reports and public records, it is consistent to find sex offenders comprising 2% of illegals apprehended. Based on this 2% figure, which is conservative, there are approximately 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States. Deborah Schurman-Kauflin Ph.D.
In her analysis of the sex-related homicides, Schurman-Kauflin noted:
The murders were the worst of the sex crimes and were especially vicious. The most common method was for an offender to break into a residence and ambush his victims. Not only were victims raped, but some (6%) were mutilated. The crime scenes were very bloody, expressing intense, angry perpetrator personalities. Specifically, most victims were blitzed, rendered incapable of fighting back, and then raped and murdered. The most common method of killing was bludgeoning, followed by stabbing. Caucasians were more likely to become victims of sexual homicide committed by illegal immigrants. Hispanics were second, and African Americans were third. Victims of sexual homicides averaged age 42. However, victims ranged in age from 16-81. Deborah Schurman-Kauflin Ph.D.
To see how extensive the problem is peruse the ICE Public Information News Releases.
A problem is growing with law-enforcement authorities increasingly classifying Hispanic criminals as “white” making it complicated to obtain good statistics on crime by illegal immigrants. This is reflected in the Texas 10 Most Wanted lists where Hispanic men are classified as “white.”
