As Polifact noted, several studies have shown immigrants, whether legal or not, commit fewer crimes than native-born. So Trump and all anti-immigrant politicians are wrong.

Deporting immigrants won't help crime statistics, nor the economy. Other studies have shown that immigrants grow the economy substantially. Note the recent studies about Dreamers (for any lurking RWNJs).

Ok -- they commit fewer crimes. Provided you overlook the crime of entering the country illegally

Swamprat must be so disappointed he can't just shoot all brown people on sight. Notice how angry he gets at the data showing undocumented immigrants commit less crime than natural-born citizens. How dare something good be noted about brown people. It makes him spit in rage.

‘How can you do this on MLK Day?’ Trump’s ICE deports non-criminal immigrant dad who came to US at age 10

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Monday deported an undocumented immigrant who was brought to the U.S. at the age of 10 and leaves behind a wife and two children.

That'll play well to his xenophobic base, his white supremacist Nazis, his fools.

Where are the cowardly Republicans, who claim to be moral? Some "moral majority" they are, the hypocrites, can't even come up with a policy for DACA immigrants.

How did they collect statistics on this? Do they mean illegal immigrants that they know about? Is reduction of crime the only reason to deport illegal aliens? I think not. Are they driving or working here illegally?
