Illegal immigrant does not equal violent criminal. Of course.
But — illegal immigrant does not equal immigrant either.
They don’t belong, and their very presence is a criminal act of sorts.
Moreover, violent crime is definitely more common among illegal immigrants for obvious reasons relating to their non-status.
This problem would not exist if progressives would allow for responsible management of borders and basic enforcement of the very fair immigration laws on the books.
“Illegal immigration” is 100% the fault of those entities (including some big business) who support it — not those who oppose it.
And also — the left is guilty of conflating those who are opposed to illegal immigration to those who are opposed to regular immigration.
