"Foreign-born individuals exhibit remarkably low levels of involvement in crime across their life course." (Bianca Bersani, University of Massachusetts, 2014. Published in Justice Quarterly.)

The immigrants come to America for a better life, and very few of the immigrants are criminals.

No wall!

Alexis de Tocqueville said that one of the great things about America is that people could start fresh in America. No matter your social standing in Europe, you could rise to the top in America. And even former prison convicts found success in the New World. You could clean yourself up, and study, and wear nice clothes, and work hard, and rise in social standing. Just because you start out poor, does not mean that you have to stay poor in America.

Disney is working on a new movie about a Mexican who came to California to pick tomatoes, and now he is one of the top brain surgeons in the world. He was poor, and now he is wealthy and respected.

Not all Mexican immigrants/illegal immigrants become brain surgeons in the US;

“He showed up every day, and he did his job. He was patted on his back. They turned a blind eye to the reality of documentation,” Richards said.

Investigators say they believe Rivera was in the country illegally when he abducted Tibbetts as she went on an evening jog, killed her and dumped her body in a cornfield.

Best to seal the borders and make sure that people already in the US, and who are seeking to enter the US legally, really are who they say they are.

"Legal immigrants" and "illegal immigrants" are two different things.

The unions can help to tell the new immigrants where the jobs are, there are jobs rebuilding areas which were devastated by fires, and by hurricanes, and by floods, and there are jobs working in the vineyards and in the fields, and there are jobs for nurses working in the hospitals, etc, etc, etc, the unions can tell the new immigrants where the jobs are.

And we can also send new immigrants to the shrinking cities such as Detroit...

And I recommend that the new immigrants check out Nevada...

The Latin Americans are not the only group to have been harassed in the USA.

It happened to the Italians too.

"They are all criminals."

"They are a filthy race of people."

https://italoamericano.org/story/2019-5-3/new-orleans-lynched-italians

Now the Italian-Americans are loved, and Italian-Americans are on top of the entertainment industry in the USA, and Italian-Americans are at the top of every industry in the USA.

Salute,
