Trump to publish weekly list of crimes by immigrants
This will include crimes involving *legal* migrants, not just illegals. Does it feel like mid 1930s Germany yet, or what?

Nope. Considering that the order specifies that it is meant to inform the public of the harm done by sanctuary cities, it likely means just illegal immigrants. I have also never heard the term alien used in the context of a legal migrant. This is just speculation by the fake new organization, Independent. No other news agency has made such wild accusations.

Well, Leon, you are wrong, and it appears you don't know your own country's legal terminology.

Anyone admitted legally to the US, but who does not become a US citizen, remains a "legal alien".

www.uscis.gov/tools/glossary/permanent-resident-alien


The Executive Order specifically stipulates the publication of "a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens".

This therefore includes foreigners who are legally in the US, not just illegal immigrants.

Immigrants commit less crimes per capita than native-born people. Trump is a fascist and is lying to the public.

I am glad that Trump is publishing this list. Hopefully the uneducated, low-information, (D) voters who want open borders and no rule of law learn about the human lives lost and impact on American families that illegal aliens cause.

This is not useful information. What matters is the proportion of crimes committed by immigrants. A list of names and crimes of one subset doesn't give you enough info.

I never said anything about them committing more crime than natives. I said that the list was good to educate the uneducated, low information (D), voters who want open borders and no rule of law. They can now see the effects of their desires on American lives and families.

"They can now see the effects of their desires on American lives and families."

Oh, did I miss Trump's executive order to also publish a weekly list of all the ways illegal immigrants have benefited people? Or are you deluded enough to think that never happens?

Anyway, thanks for demonstrating that you're all in favor of propaganda reeducation when it's for people whose politics you don't like.

Sure, immigrants don't commit as much crime. Their children, however, commit more.
slypups (1889 D)

Except by only publishing crimes of non-citizens, it looks like they commit lots of crimes. But if proportional statistics show they commit crimes at the same rate as citizens, then a listing of crimes is really meaningless - it just shows they are like any other large population in the US. Showing only partial facts is as good as lying and deception here - we should know all about this as WebDip players.
