According to the United States Sentencing Commission (USSC), the nearly half of all federal crimes committed in 2018 were committed at the hands of non-U.S. citizens.
The report released by USSC shows that non-citizens committed 42.7 percent of all crimes last year:
According to a report by the Kaiser Family Foundation, non-citizens account for seven percent of the United States population. Not only does that mean that they were vastly overrepresented in the total amount of federal crimes committed, but they were also heavily overrepresented in several specific federal crimes.
They accounted for 48.4 percent of drug possession crimes, 24.5 percent of drug trafficking crimes, 18 percent of murders, and 27.2 percent of money laundering crimes.
Overall, the most heavily prosecuted federal crimes in the United States in 2018 were those pertaining to immigration, at a staggering 34.4 percent, according to the report. The second most prosecuted federal crime per the report was drug crime, accounting for 28.1 percent.
“Immigration cases accounted for the largest single group of offenses in fiscal year 2018, comprising 34.4% of all reported cases,” the report said. “Cases involving drugs, firearms, and fraud were the next most common types of offenses after immigration cases. Together these four types of offenses accounted for 82.9 percent of all cases reported to the commission in fiscal year 2018.”
According to the breakdown, non-U.S. citizens made up 91.5 percent of the immigration crimes. Some immigration crimes, like fraudulent “green card marriages,” can be committed by U.S. citizens.
The report, which was sent as a memorandum to members of Congress, comes in the midst of gridlock in Washington, D.C. on the issue of border security.
Big League Politics reported:
President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
