In his speech last night to a joint session of congress, President Donald Trump mentioned that he has “ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to create an office to serve American Victims. The office is called VOICE — Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement. We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.”

According to an article this month in Scientific American, immigration-crime research over the past 20 years has corroborated the conclusions of a number of early 20th century presidential commissions that found no backing for an immigration-crime connection. In fact, the literature demonstrates that immigrants commit fewer crimes, on average, than native-born Americans.

But did the researchers have the information they needed to substantiate those conclusions?

    In addition to giving us some statistics on the alarming and rapidly growing number of hate crimes by white Americans against Muslim immigrants (and Hidu or Sikh immigrants who are mistaken for Muslims), Nolan might also want to share some thoughts about the latest scandal involving one of Trump's strongest and most powerful immigration opponents AG Jeff Sessions, who is now being accused of lying to a Senate committee during confirmation hearings about his connections with Russia.

    This also raises the larger question of which country's interests Donald Trump was actually elected to protect and support.

    Was it the United States of America, as we have all been led to believe? Or was it Vladimir Putin's Russia?

    Nolan might also want to mention an historical precedent for Trump's proposed immigrant crime list - the Nazi publication Der Stuermer, which published lists of crimes allegedly committed by Jews.

    Interesting, Roger, you are comparing the gathering of information about crimes committed by people in the US in defiance of our immigration laws with Hitler's treatment of the Jews. Consider the following differences:


    1. The Jews were citizens of Germany. They were not breaking any laws by being there.
    2. Hitler was in the process of justifying his plan to exterminate the Jews.
    3. In fact, he exterminated eight million of them in his concentration camps.


    Do you really think Trump's motives are similar to Hitler's? If you have evidence of Trump constructing concentration camps and preparing ovens to extermination aliens who are here unlawfully, you should let the news media know right away so they can make the knowledge available to the public.
