QotD: "Designating immigrants as 'murderers' and 'rapists' flies in the face of data..."

"Caroline Baum points out that President Trump’s opposition goes far beyond 'rapists and murderers': 'Designating immigrants as 'murderers' and 'rapists' flies in the face of data that show that undocumented immigrants are much less likely to commit crimes or be incarcerated than their native-born counterparts. And legal immigrants are even less likely offenders than their illegal counterparts."Before you insist that Trump is protesting illegal immigration, consider that his administration has tried to clamp down on all forms of legal immigration..."~ Scott Sumner in his post 'Us and Them' summarising Caroline Baum's Oped 'If You Want To Start a Business Here, the U.S. Should Roll Out the Red Carpet'


  1. The Economist libertarian Scott Summer claims Immigrants are less likely to be criminal than native USA citizens >> Check his linked references to evidence = None... Delusions for the immediate swallowing, full, libertarian progressive hogwash . Oh wait ther'es more >> yes those drug addled and desperado criminal entrants are even less likely than the shiny new Mexicans and Hezbollah immigrants to engage in illegal activities.

    1. You are dishonest. Sumner links to the data supplied by Caroline Baum, just as I say above.

  2. Hear hear! Trump should learn from Angela Merkel. Look how she's aided her country.
