    "Mexican leader knocks U.S. crime rates"

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060923/...NlYwNtZW5ld3M-

    ....U.S. officials need to work on their own rising crime rates.....

    .....U.S. officials have criticized the high murder and kidnapping rates in Mexican border cities and the danger they pose to Americans. The U.S. ambassador recently advised U.S. citizens to exercise extreme caution when traveling in Mexico......

    ...."I saw that crime rates in the United States increased 3.5 percent so far this year. So they have their own problems," Fox said. "And with numbers of homicides, it's better we don't speak about them, because, even though they show up on the front pages every day, there are many fewer here than there."....

    Scores of U.S. citizens have been abducted in Nuevo Laredo in recent years and more than two dozen cases remain unresolved.
    So crime in the US has increased 3.5%........I wonder how much of it is due to ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

    With regard to the abductions on the US border, I really doubt it is being perpetrated by US citizens.

    It really is time to build a wall & seal up the border.

    I dont know about anywhere else, but I can testify that in my hometown illegals have had a direct correlation to the raise in crime stats here.

    I would suspect that to be the case everywhere. I doubt that you'll hear much about it, as it seems to be one of the best kept secrets in America...due to being "politically correct" and all. God forbid we tell anyone the truth and be accused of being racist or something.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Mexico Murder Rate = 17.2 per 100,000
    USA murder Rate = 7.3 per 100,000
    As per the UN Yearbook 1996

    I am sure the numbers differ much more nowadays.

    I'll just add this bit - a section from what I posted on NRA News thread today -
    70 MILLION MORE GUNS.38% LESS VIOLENT CRIME

    Data released by the FBI on Monday showed that in 2005, the nation's
    total violent crime rate was 38% lower than in 1991, when violent crime
    hit an all-time high. Rates of the individual categories of violent
    crime were also much lower in 2005 than in 1991. Murder was 43% lower,
    rape 25% lower, robbery 48% lower, and aggravated assault 33% lower. The
    FBI's report came on the heels of a Bureau of Justice Statistics crime
    survey that found that violent crime was lower in 2005 than anytime in
    the survey's 32-year history.

    Defying the anti-gunners' claim that more guns means more crime, from
    1991-2005 the number of privately owned guns increased by more than 70
    million.

    The news media often characterize violent crime as a primarily
    gun-oriented problem, but the FBI's report showed that only one in every
    four violent crimes in 2005 was committed with a gun. In 2005, as in
    previous years, most violent crimes were robberies and aggravated
    assaults, most of which were committed with knives or bare hands.

    Crime Could Be Lower in Mexico...

    isn't that why so many people are trying to sneak across the border from the U.S. into Mexico?

    Aw, c'mon, let 'er rip! I know we have a direct connection between illegals and crime here and I'll shout it from the rooftops. One of the shippers we use has a wonderfull, LEGAL, mexican lady dispatcher. I asked her about the subject one time and did I get an earful!!! She despises illegals and is proud of all the hard work and patience it took for her to do it the legal way....

    There have been a number of drug bust in the Seattle area lately, many of the people arrested were Illeagal aliens from Mexico. Our crime goes up cause Mexico ships us their criminals.

    See, if you are "in charge of crime", that's different than "controlling" crime. I think that was his main beef- he's used to being in charge..........

    Name 5 US citizens, the illegals want the illegals not the valid US citizens. Don't accuse the farmers either they use the green card carrying variety as much as they can control.

    There was a story on the tube the other day of a Mexican illegal (ex con) and his GF (illegal) came over to stay, He killed her, then he did it to his next GF, then His next GF. Each time he was detained and questioned by the PD about their disappearance, was later (after a lot of police time) was charged, convicted, and jailed with out probation until his 85th BD.

    So my question is this why is there no law requiring the detaining of, and automatic deportation (if non felony) of any Illegal stopped for any reason, anywhere on US soil? Their have been way too many horror stories of an illegal driving, N a accident with the local PD just releasing.

    Well, I personally know a Macedonian, three Mexicans, a Honduran, two El Salvadorians, two Fijians, three Brits and a Finn who would disagree with you. While the process can be long it is the system. What many outside want is to have wide open doors to let in everyone? No can do as our economy couldn't absorb it. Not to mention our medical and welfare system.

    I'd hate to think what their murder rate would be if their people would stay THERE and murder people instead of illegally taking up residence in Texas, murdering someone here, and fleeing back to Mexico. My jurisdiction estimates we have around 5-8 murder suspects that have gone back to Mexico to hide out now, and chance of extradition is ZERO.
