Study: Immigrant crime rate low

In a previous post I pointed out that although the anti-Hispanics, I mean anti-“illegal” immigrants like to categorize all “illegal” immigrants as racists and murderers the crime rate, in the United States has actually been going down.

Now here’s a report to prove it.

IRVINE – Immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than native-born Americans, according to a study released Monday by a UC Irvine professor for the Immigration Policy Center, based in Washington D.C.

UCI sociology professor Ruben Rumbaut found that immigrants of all national backgrounds were incarcerated at much lower rates than their American-born counterparts, according to the 2000 Census. The numbers applied to both legal and illegal immigrants.

His study also described a precipitous drop in crime rates nationwide throughout recent years – a period during which immigration has been at all-time record high. “While immigration is going up, crime is going down,” Rumbaut said. “I think it’s important to get the facts out there.”
