Since the DREAM Act is dead, at least for now, and it’s supporters are vowing to press on with their efforts to reward crime, I thought it would be a good idea to shine some light on what the media will not tell you.
In 2006, Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D., researched for an article, “The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants in the United States. While Dr. Schurman-Kauflin has been featured on MSM broadcasts as a criminal expert many times, the highlighted article received no attention whatsoever. Here are some excerpts and commentary. All emphasis is mine.
Based on population numbers of 12,000,000 illegal immigrants and the fact that young males make up more of this population than the general U.S. population, sex offenders in the illegal immigrant group make up a higher percentage. When examining ICE reports and public records, it is consistent to find sex offenders comprising 2% of illegals apprehended. Based on this 2% figure, which is conservative, there are approximately 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States.
This translates to 93 sex offenders and 12 serial sexual offenders coming across U.S. borders illegally per day. The 1500 offenders in this study had a total of 5,999 victims. Each sex offender averaged 4 victims. This places the estimate for victimization numbers around 960,000 for the 88 months examined in this study.
In any other context, this would be a national outrage, with considerable time and coverage spent on “raising awareness.” However, since this casts a Democratic client group in a negative light, the MSM is willing to let the crimes, as well as the victims, go unheard.
Since most sexual offences are committed againt females, I did wonder if NOW, or any other feminist group, has an opinion on this. However, it appears that NOW is too busy suing Hooters to respond to several hundred thousand female victims of rape, molestation, and murder.
It’s all about priorities, you know.
Dr. Schurman-Kauflin also profiled the perpetrators or these crimes…
They averaged 4 victims per offender. Nearly 63% had been deported on another offense prior to the sex crime. There was an average of 3 years of committing crimes such as DUI, assaults, or drug related offenses prior to being apprehended for a sexual offense.
Illegal immigrants who commit sex crimes first cross the U.S. border illegally. Then they gradually commit worse crimes and are continually released back into society or deported. Those who were deported simply returned illegally again. Only 2% of the offenders in this study has no history of criminal behavior, beyond crossing the border illegally. There is a clear pattern of criminal escalation. From misdemeanors such as assault or DUI, to drug offenses, illegal immigrants who commit sex crimes break U.S. laws repeatedly. They are highly mobile, work in low skilled jobs with their hands, use drugs and alcohol, are generally promiscuous, have little family stability, and choose victims who are easy to attack. Their attacks are particularly brutal, and they use a hands-on method of controlling and/or killing their victims.
This speaks volumes about the scope of the problem. At the first line of defense, our border is as pourous as ever. People that commit crimes, and are deported, simply return to commit more crimes. I can think of no better case to be made for border security than this.
I would strongly encourage you to read the rest of the article. It is well researched, as was reportedly self funded to avoid any appearances of bias.
There are two things that I find outrageous, they are related, but are better discussed separately. One is the silence from the left, epsecially the feminists. Here are, by now, over a million sex crimes committed (mostly against women) IN THIS COUNTRY, that could have been prevented by border security. Just to rehash, the number looks like this…
Over one million victims, and NOW has nothing to say?
Added to this outrage is the silence from the media. This has not been covered, and it never will, unless it is to discredit the author, or anyone that points to this problem. Apparently a million or more sex crimes isn’t enough to warrant even a mention, but I bet you’ll hear all about Obama’s Hawaii trip on the evening news.
Also, let’s throw in the supporters of amnesty (The Dream Act). Of course, they have no interest in this being mentioned, as it would complicate their efforts to not only be excused for their criminal activity, but be subsidized for it. I think it is worth asking if 1,000,000 victims are enough, or well worth the price for their amnesty, but they won’t answer. I have to assume this as fact: that they don’t care about the viticms of illegal immigration, as long as they get their amnesty and benefits.
Then, not to be excluded, are the cowards in both political parties that refuse to bring this to the national stage for fear of being labeled as racists. The rent-a-mob is noisey, but even they have limits, and people rising in unison to support the victims of these crimes (of which 30% are latino), would be hard to defeat. Even when the “progressives” resort to their typical Alinsky tactics, 1,000,000 victims are difficult to marginalize. But that won’t stop them from trying. In so doing, they’ll expose themselves further.
The second outrage is that the “progressives” are using the illegals, just as they use any other minority group that they can make dependent upon them. Here is, again, the video that shows them slipping, and admitting the truth.
So there you are. We have crimes, victims, political opportunists of every sort, cowards, and criminals. The victims of these crimes are being ignored, some for political gain, others to avoid the price of their own crimes, some out of cowardice, but all are being used to grow the power of a few…a few that would use others to gain control over most of our daily activities. And wouldn’t a few million more voters go far towards accomplishing that power?
And what of the latinos? They can be put in government houseing, welfare progams, and government schools. All of those will prevent them from leaving poverty, allowing the Democrats to threaten them into voting “progressive” each and every election cycle.
