OK, class, it’s time for a multiple choice quiz.


The federal government recently conducted a study of 100 illegal immigrants who were arrested for a crime and then released into the general population.

Students, what is the average amount of times each of these illegals were arrested?

Is it: a) one time; b) three times; or c) five times?

How about if I told you that none of the above choices is high enough? What if you found out that the average number of times that this study group of 100 illegal immigrants have been arrested was SIX TIMES EACH!

Yes, that was precisely the finding of this federal study. Let it sink in one more time: in a group of 100 illegal immigrants who were arrested and let go, each of these people had been arrested, on average, six times each.

Give us your poor, your tired, and those yearning to become habitual criminals in America, eh?

One would think this is a pretty big story. After all, the image that pro-illegal activists try to portray is one of poor, hard-working, wonderful people who simply do the miserable jobs that no lazy American would bother to do, at a fraction of the living wage.

I guess some of those “jobs” include robbing, raping, plundering, and otherwise violating the laws of our land.

The reason the results of this federal study aren’t getting major media play is fairly obvious. To remind the American public that there are a heck of a lot of people who sneak across the border into our country and wind up continually committing crimes would be a real challenge for the type of people who prefer to call criminals “undocumented aliens.”

Incidentally, I always get a chuckle out of seeing a newspaper article contain the term “undocumented aliens.” I guess if an illegal robbed a bank, they’d be making an “undocumented withdrawal.”

I was more than a little intrigued about what some of the pro-illegal voices would have to say about this little tidbit of information. My radio show producer managed to get the president of the Dallas chapter of LULAC (League of Latin American Cities), Jesse Diaz, on my talk show the other day.

Mr. Diaz has a perfectly good explanation about why this group of illegal immigrants has broken the law so many times. He believes [wait for it]...that it’s [wait for it]... our fault. You see, Jesse Diaz, LULAC Dallas president, feels that it’s the sleazy American culture that is bringing his people down.

I know you think I’m pulling your leg.

I’m not.
