Illegal Aliens Mostly Murderers and Drunk Drivers
WorldNetDaily’s Joseph Farah has done some hard-hitting statistical analysis and found that a substantial share of the murders and drunk driving fatalities in the United States each year are caused by illegal aliens.
While the military “quagmire” in Iraq was said to tip the scales of power in the U.S. midterm elections, most Americans have no idea more of their fellow citizens — men, women and children — were murdered this year by illegal aliens than the combined death toll of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan since those military campaigns began.
Though no federal statistics are kept on murders or any other crimes committed by illegal aliens, a number of groups have produced estimates based on data collected from prisons, news reports and independent research. Twelve Americans are murdered every day by illegal aliens, according to statistics released by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. If those numbers are correct, it translates to 4,380 Americans murdered annually by illegal aliens. That’s 21,900 since Sept. 11, 2001.
Now, Ed Morrisey thinks this is more of WND “demonization of illegals.” He points out that the murder rate has been falling while illegal immigration has been escalating. But, Ed, just think how bad the murdering would be if legal residents weren’t getting older and committing fewer crimes? He also notes that 4,380 murders would constitute over a quarter of all murders in the FBI database, a rather disproportionate total from a group that is no more than 7 percent of the population even by the wildest estimates. But, as Dan Riehl points out, an anti-immigration group claims that 95% of all murders in Los Angeles are committed by these migrant scum. And a right-wing tabloid notes that virtually all criminals are illegal aliens.
When they’re taking a break from picking fruit and murdering people, they apparently get liquored up and hit the road.
While King reports 12 Americans are murdered daily by illegal aliens, he says 13 are killed by drunk illegal alien drivers — for another annual death toll of 4,745. That’s 23,725 since Sept. 11, 2001.
While no one — in or out of government — tracks all U.S. accidents caused by illegal aliens, the statistical and anecdotal evidence suggests many of last year’s 42,636 road deaths involved illegal aliens.
A report by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Study found 20 percent of fatal accidents involve at least one driver who lacks a valid license. In California, another study showed that those who have never held a valid license are about five times more likely to be involved in a fatal road accident than licensed drivers.
People without licenses are often involved in drunk driving incidents and illegal aliens often lack licenses. Q.E.D., yes? Sure, a couple of those people might be alcoholics who repeatedly get caught driving drunk and had their licenses suspended. But, since we don’t have any good statistics on this, isn’t it more likely that they are mostly crazy Mexicans drunk on tequila and driving around in fancy cars purchased with their obscene tomato picking lucre? Of course.
