Secure the border, stop crime: The criminal justice reform we really need

Yui Mok/PA Wire URN:26130424
Shouldn’t we all agree as a society that any immigrant engaging in criminality, much less fueling the drug overdose crisis, should be removed from the country, irrespective of one’s general views on immigration?
We can’t pick our citizens, but we can pick our immigrants. With so many wonderful people on God’s earth, is it too much to ask that we only admit law-abiding people and deport those who commit crimes? Yet, with the rise of sanctuary cities we have reached a point where the political class can’t even share this universal and easy-to-accomplish goal.
The illegal alien crime wave ignored by the media and politicians
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released its annual report on deportations and the numbers are startling. In FY 2018, ICE made 158,581 administrative arrests, of which 138,117 had a prior criminal record. The total of 542,798 criminal convictions and arrests accrued between these aliens is simply astounding.
The data doesn’t include those criminal charge categories that had fewer than 1,000 offenders.
This is mind-boggling. The sheer number of avoidable crimes from people that could easily be deterred from ever entering this country should shock our consciousness.
Every one of these crimes, by definition, is avoidable because the perpetrators shouldn’t be here in the first place, and indeed, wouldn’t be here if not for the magnets, lack of a border wall, and sanctuary cities and courts. Two thousand twenty-eight homicide offenses, 5,562 robberies, 11,766 weapons offenses, 50,753 assault charges, 76,585 dangerous drug charges, 80,730 DUIs, and over 12,000 sexual offenses. Just think for a moment about the immeasurable carnage caused by our senseless disregard for sovereignty and the number of nameless victims the media will never spotlight.
