It was just a few months or weeks ago that Donald Trump was warning America about the hordes of Mexican rapists, murderers, gangsters and God knows what other crime that soon would be showing up in YOUR neighborhood. For some strange reason, I have not heard much about these criminals during the past month. I assume that either they have taken a pledge of being nice or they simply disappeared over the Rio Grande river. I guess Donald is more interested in defeating China, North Korea, or ISIS these days.
Anyway, we now have some statistics, and I do understand the word, ‘statistics’ just does not register very well among Trump supporters.A study by Ewing, Martinez, and Rambaut reveals the following facts.Roughly 1.6% of immigrants from ages 18-39 are incarcerated compared to 3.3% of native born Americans. In 2010, 10.7% of native born men aged 18-39 without a high school degree were incarcerated compared to 2.8% of Mexican immigrants.
