If all of the people boohooing about the plight of illegal aliens would stop debasing themselves and this country for about five seconds, they’d have enough time to view the following statistics:
Murders in the United States jumped 4.8 percent last year, and overall violent crime was up 2.5 percent for the year, marking the largest
annual increase in crime in the United States since 1991, according to figures released Monday by the FBI.
Robberies nationally increased 4.5 percent, and aggravated assaults increased 1.9 percent, while the number of rapes last year fell 1.9 percent, the report
said.
The Justice Department has no idea what’s driving this upswing, but I think the answer is very easy to figure out.
Three words: Gangs of illegals.
The one that’s gained a very large dose of notoriety of late is Mara Salva Trucha, better known as MS13.
These thugs are trained in paramilitary tactics, which means they can invade homes and rob with alarming efficiency.
They’re also known for the way they punish defectors and rival gangs, one of their favorite methods being to cut off the fingers of offenders with machetes.
The group is made up mostly of Salvadoran illegals, but now includes a large number of Mexican illegals as well.
And they’re not just in big cities anymore.
They now have a presence in Northern Virginia, as well as rural Pensylvania.
And the scariest part is they’re just the tip of the ice-berg.
Hispanic youths, whether recent arrivals or birthright American citizens, are developing an underclass culture. (By
“Hispanic” here, I mean the population originating in Latin America—above all, in Mexico—as distinct from America’s much smaller Puerto Rican and Dominican
communities of Caribbean descent, which have themselves long shown elevated crime and welfare rates.) Hispanic school dropout rates and teen birthrates
are now the highest in the nation. Gang crime is exploding nationally—rising 50 percent from 1999 to 2002—driven by the march of Hispanic immigration east
and north across the country. Most worrisome, underclass indicators like crime and single parenthood do not improve over successive generations of Hispanics—they
worsen.
The pull to a culture of violence among Hispanic children begins earlier and earlier. Researchers and youth workers across the country confirm
this observation. In Chicago, gangs start recruiting kids at age nine, according to criminologists studying policing and social trends in that area.
The Chicago Community Policing Evaluation Consortium concluded that gangs have become fully integrated into Hispanic youth culture; even children not in
gangs emulate their attitudes, dress, and self-presentation.
The result is a community in thrall.
Federal law enforcement officials in Virginia are tracking with alarm the spread
of gang violence from Northern Virginia west into the Shenandoah Valley and south toward Charlottesville, a trend so disturbing that they secured federal
funds to stanch the mayhem.
And that was in May of 2004, when the immigration problem was well below the radars of most Americans.
“This is beyond a regional problem. It is, in fact, a national problem,” said FBI assistant director Michael Mason,
head of the bureau’s Washington field office.
Open-borders apologists dismiss the Hispanic crime threat by observing that black crime rates are even higher. True, but irrelevant: the black population
is not growing, whereas Hispanic immigration is reaching virtually every part of the country, sometimes radically changing local demographics. With a felony
arrest rate up to triple that of whites, Hispanics can dramatically raise community crime levels.
Many cops and youth workers blame the increase in gang appeal on the disintegration of the Hispanic family. The trends are worsening, especially for U.S.-born
Hispanics. In California, 67 percent of children of U.S.-born Hispanic parents lived in an intact family in 1990; by 1999, that number had dropped to 56
percent. The percentage of Hispanic children living with a single mother in California rose from 18 percent in 1990 to 29 percent in 1999. Nationally,
single-parent households constituted 25 percent of all Hispanic households with minor children in 1980; by 2000, the proportion had jumped to 34 percent.
The trends in teen parenthood—the marker of underclass behavior—will almost certainly affect the crime and gang rate. Hispanics now outrank blacks for teen
births; Mexican teens have higher birthrates than Puerto Ricans, previously the most “ghettoized” Hispanic subgroup in terms of welfare use and out-of-wedlock
child-rearing. In 2002, there were 83.4 births per 1,000 Hispanic females between ages 15 and 19, compared with 66.6 among blacks, 28.5 among non-Hispanic
whites, and 18.3 among Asians. Perhaps these young Hispanic mothers are giving birth as wives? Unlikely. In California, where Latina teens have the highest
birthrate of teens in any state, 79 percent of teen births to U.S.-born Latinas in 1999 were to unmarried girls.
All of the above should be more than enough reason for the bleeding-hearts to quit their pandering to the illegal alien community and face the facts.
These are not just people living in the shadows, trying to eek out a living.
The crimes they’re committing are vicious, and doing things like tying the hands of law enforcement officials, not allowing them to arrest for illegal status, is only worsening the problem.
These are also the same people demanding rights as if they’re owed.
I think we need to take a good long look at where this country is headed.
I think it’s safe to say we’re being invaded.
