Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

The Demographics and Countries of Origin of Incarcerated Immigrants in 2016

Rate this Entry
Via the Cato Institute:

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has expanded interior immigration enforcement and made it easier for states and local governments to apprehend and detain illegal immigrants.1 His actions are often based on the widespread perception that illegal immigrants are a significant and disproportionate source of crime in the United States.2 This brief uses American Community Survey data from the U.S. Census Bureau to analyze incarcerated immigrants according to their citizenship and legal status for 2016. The data show that all immigrants—legal and illegal—are less likely to be incarcerated than native-born Americans relative to their shares of the population. By themselves, illegal immigrants are less likely to be incarcerated than native-born Americans.

    I think you are missing the point of the concern people have over illegal immigrants committing crimes, which is that they aren't supposed to be in the United States at all. And if our immigration laws were enforced effectively, there would be far fewer of them here to commit crimes.

    Do you have any compassion for people who are the victims of crimes that could have been avoided by deporting the criminals before they committed a crime.....or not letting them into the country in the first place?

    How about Kate Steinle's father? If the police had detained her killer until ICE could pick him up, he would have been deported before he had a chance to kill Steinle's daughter.
