Forum on illegal immigration Focuses on crime

From the Tennessean.com 

FRANKLIN — At a town-hall meeting billed as “The Criminal Face of Illegal Immigration” Thursday, host Phil Valentine said, “People are saying that all immigrants are hardworking and come here to do jobs that Americans won’t do …. And a lot of them are.”

Here is some other information regarding Illegal Immigration and Crime..

And a lot of them are not. Illegal Immigrants comprise less than 9% of the US population yet make up 29% of those incarcerated in federal Prison. In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding homicide warrants are for illegal immigrants, and 75% of the Los Angeles Most Wanted list also happen to be illegal immigrants.

Gang Violence is also a major concern with the Illegal Immigrant community, with MS-13 being one of the most brutal. The FBI estimates that MS-13 has as many as 10,000 active members dispersed in 33 states. Members have been accused of burglaries, drug sales, weapons smuggling, extortion, illegal firearm sales, auto thefts, murder and rape.

“Street gangs in America have grown and expanded their influence to an alarming level, marked by increased violence and criminal activity,” Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff has said. “These gangs pose a severe threat to public safety, and their growth must not go unchallenged.”

Local and Federal law enforcement recently had some success in addressing MS-13 in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Jose Santos Bonilla, 33, was arrested during a 6 a.m. raid on a southeast Richmond home. Since Bonilla came to the East Bay from San Francisco six months ago, MS-13 members have been linked to three homicides and several other shootings as they sought to carve out territory and intimidate other gangs, authorities said.

“Federal prosecution, although it’s more difficult to get a conviction, brings with it a much stiffer sentence,” said Richmond police Lt. Mark Gagan.

Police, along with the FBI and the ICE, sought other people believed to be connected with the gang but were unsuccessful.

“There are several individuals that are fugitives now that have been identified with gang activity,” Gagan said.

Bonilla is an illegal immigrant and was arrested on an immigration charge, Gagan said. Police expect to seek additional charges related to weapons possession and gang activity.

  1. I experienced some folks of middle-eastern heritage in Central America as I was stationed in Honduras with the U.S. Army in 1992 – 1993. My whole duty assignment was from 1990 – 1994. We were part of a drug extradition task force and military intelligence battalion and we discovered some truly alarming groups there. Not of Latin origin at all. And now our government seeks to give amnesty to over 20 million illegal aliens and to further open our borders to abuse. I call these non-Latin posers crossing our borders “Mexican Hezbollah”. There can be no more fitting label than this. Best wishes to you all! Keep up the good work on the blog – the more we have getting word out, the better.

    Crime done by people who are not even here legally is quite objectionnable. Here in LA every LAPD knows that the vast majority of the crime is done by illegals (mainly latino) yet our Mayor prefers to protect them, ie he refuses to ban the ‘special order 40’, a strange rule which bans officers from asking the immig status of someone. It almost feels like he wants to give work to his police
