Staggering 2,500 Murders Committed by Illegal Aliens in US 2018
According to the latest statistics released by the FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), more than a quarter of all murders in the US were committed by illegal aliens in 2018.
Out of a total 9,049 homicides that the FBI reported, some 2,500 (28%) were committed by foreign nationals who were never supposed to be in America in the first place. As far as both parties in Congress are concerned, this is not a national problem.
As one commentator noted, 2,500 homicides is the equivalent of 43 Las Vegas mass shootings. Following that massacre, Congress began the push for “red flag” gun laws in which people can turn their neighbors in to authorities and have their firearms confiscated by police without probable cause.
The Trump administration banned “bump stocks,” a firearm accessory used to help physically handicapped people enjoy sport shooting with commonly owned rifles. The hypocrisy is staggering.
The additional statistics released by ICE reveal even bleaker numbers. ICE now has 3,274,244 illegal aliens under ICE “supervision” as they work their way through the immigration court system. 2.5 million of them have final deportation orders.
The “supervised” ones are not in jail. Being “supervised” means they’re supposed to let ICE know where they are at all times, so they’ll show up for their appointed court dates sometime in 2027.
With 3.2 million illegals under supervision and an estimated 20,000 federal ICE employees, that works out to about 163 illegal aliens to be “supervised” per agent. But that would be the case if ICE’s only duty was to supervise those 3.2 million.
Another 50,922 are so dangerous that ICE does have them detained awaiting deportation. The numbers are so overwhelming that interior enforcement operations by ICE fell 10% in 2018. They were too busy with the border surge and too busy “supervising” 3.2 million illegals.
An Inspector General report from 2017 found that in some ICE field offices, there was only a single ICE agent for every 10,000 illegal aliens who are supposed to be under “supervision.” That was when there were only 2.2 million illegal aliens under supervised release.
The number of supervised illegals has gone up by another million since 2017, thanks in large part to the Trump administration allowing ICE to do its job. But the number of ICE agents has not dramatically increased in that same time, thanks to Congress not doing its job.
The vast majority of the illegals arrested by ICE – more than 8 out of 10 – already have at least one criminal conviction on the record. In other words, approximately 2.6 million of the illegal aliens under ICE “supervision” are criminals who are not behind bars; and we are supposed to take their word for it that they will show up for court hearing dates in which they will be ordered deported.
In addition to committing 2,500 murders in America, illegal aliens kept themselves busy by committing 75,000 acts of drunk driving; 68,000 acts of dealing or possessing dangerous drugs; 46,000 assaults; 10,000 burglaries; 10,000 foreigner in possession of a firearm offenses; 14,500 sexual assaults (not counting prostitution or sex crimes against children); stealing 5,200 vehicles; committing 4,700 armed robberies; and 1,800 instances of kidnapping.
Since these are statistics compiled by law enforcement, it means that the numbers only reflect the number of illegal aliens arrested for these crimes.
With unsolved crimes added on top of those numbers, it becomes staggering.
The numbers compiled by ICE also don’t reflect the horrific treatment of Americans at the hands of illegal aliens in so-called “sanctuary cities.” Incredible amounts of crime committed by illegal aliens is never reported to ICE by these districts, which only report the most egregious cases to ICE (and then often by accident).
In the greater Los Angeles sanctuary city area, for example, ICE only averaged about 35 arrests per month in 2018. In Dallas, TX, which is not a sanctuary city, and which has fewer illegal aliens residing in it, ICE averaged 300 arrests per month.
All of this points to a massive crime wave happening across America. Yet Congress just passed a budget which funds billions of dollars for border walls… in the Middle East.
