Immigration Offenses Make Latinos New Majority in Federal Prisons, Report Says

Fox News Latino, September 7, 2011

For the first time — Latinos make up more than half of all federal felony offenders sentenced so far this year, a major demographic shift swollen by immigration offenses, according to a new government report.

Latinos already outnumber all other ethnic groups sentenced to serve time in prison for federal felonies.

The report released Tuesday shows that Latinos reached the milestone by making up the majority of all federal felony offenders sentenced in the first nine months of fiscal year 2011, according to the U.S. Sentencing Commission.

Latinos comprised 50.3 percent of all people sentenced in that time period, blacks 19.7 percent and whites 26.4 percent.

The commission’s statistics also reveal that sentences for felony immigration crimes — which include illegal crossing and other crimes such as alien smuggling — were responsible for most of the increase in the number of Latinos sent to prison over the last decade.

    During my tenure at the San Diego Federal courthouse, most of the Mexican cases were drug related in the early 90’s. Maybe different now, been away from the system many years now.

    “…a major demographic shift swollen by immigration offenses”

    How long before the proposed solution will be to stop enforcing immigration laws?

    Simply redefine the terms illegal and criminal and there will be no criminals.

    What is the definition of insanity?

    How about taking the most successful nation in the history of the world in science, inventions, agricultural surpluses, and a host of other things and importing people by the millions who have never created or run a successful country.

    To add insult to injury many of our fellow Whites declare this a net plus for our country as a whole!

    If the whole thing wasn’t so tragic, it would be ridiculously funny.

    it wouldnt be for their driving because in Oregon, the police rarely cite or arrest illegal aliens that cause car accidents of a violent nature.

    Fatal Pedestrian-Involved Crash – Albany Police Case 11-17347

    Albany Police – 09/08/11

    Crash SceneOn Wednesday, September 7, 2011, at about 8:25 p.m., the Albany Police Department and Albany Fire Department responded to the intersection of Santiam Highway and Waverly Drive on the report that a vehicle struck a pedestrian. The pedestrian was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Corvallis where he later died as a result of his injuries. The identity of the pedestrian, a 52-year old male Albany resident, is being withheld until family members are notified.

    Investigators determined that the pedestrian was struck by a 2003 Kia Optima, driven by 24-year old Lebanon resident Francisco Valenzuela, when he attempted to cross Waverly Drive against a red light. The vehicle had been travelling east on Santiam Highway and had a green light as it travelled through the intersection at Waverly Drive.

    The Linn County Multi-Agency Investigation Team (MAIT), comprised of officers from the Albany and Lebanon Police Departments, Linn County Sheriff’s Office and the Oregon State Police, conducted the on-scene investigation. The intersection of Santiam Highway and Waverly Drive was shut down for about 2 1/2 hours.

    The investigation is continuing and there is no evidence that speed or impairment were contributing factors.

    Why clog up your prisons, at great expense to the taxpayer, with illegal immigrants? Unless they’ve done something else worthy of imprisonment or its a second offence, wouldn’t it be better to just bundle them back across the border?

    I had the misfortune of spending time in two of NJ’s county seats today. Both times I saw quite a few 4’6″ Mexican females with multiple children as well as a number of Mexican males milling about. Both places felt like Mexico City with one small difference: the signs were still in both Spanish and that other language.

    Let’em out of jail. Game USA over.

    Yes, John, that WOULD make sense if the white citizenry ran the country.

    But you see, there’s MONEY in the prison racket. Don’t get me wrong, I’d sooner see every Mestizo and black behind bars than see one more murder or rape- or see my culture shat upon any more.

    But some white fat cat is raking in the dough on Hector and Hepe, who should have their mangy butts put on a catapult and launched into the stratosphere in the general direction of due south. Hit the Pacific ocean, Panama, or the moon, just launch them.

    I imagine that Whites will somehow get the blame for these horrible people and their illegal actions and misdirection.

    So America has replaced blacks as the largest non-White population with an ethnicity that seems just as prone to criminality.

    That is what is called in the trade as a ‘twofer’ or ‘two for the price of one’.

    Why clog up your prisons, at great expense to the taxpayer, with illegal immigrants?

    @John

    The key phrase in your sentence is at great expense to the taxpayer.

    This is being done on purpose as part of the government’s planned genocide of whites. Part of the plan to wreak havoc on whites was and is to import millions of fecund, destitute, violent nonwhites and unleash them into white American neighborhoods and cities (Hart-Celler Act, 1965).

    Not immediately deporting criminal aliens is an example of the Cloward-Piven strategy: overburden white cities and states with the humongous welfare costs of black and brown “immigrants” and refugees, including the exorbitant costs of imprisoning large numbers of them for extensive periods of time. The plan also includes accusations of racism and career destruction for any white who objects.

    The government knows what it’s doing and has no intention of letting up. Even with record levels of unemployment and entire states on the verge of bankruptcy, no major presidential candidate has announced that he/she will put an immediate end to record levels of third world immigration. In fact, many of the candidates and the president himself advocate making hoards of destitute illegals American citizens through amnesty, better known as “comprehensive immigration reform”, entitling them to even more life-long welfare benefits.

    That tells you everything you need to know. Also ask: Cui Bono? Who benefits, and there you’ll find your answers.

    We are importing 125,000 legal immigrants per month and have been doing so for years. They are mostly H1-B workers and the standard sleazy small business owners who hire only their relatives and open convenience stores for food stamp fraud and to take advantage of goverment loans, tax breaks etc for non Whites.

    Very true. The original Harrington, Alinsky Cloward strategy had only 12 percent of the population, the blacks with which to drive the country into bankruptcy.

    Problem was, blacks were and are too small a group to cause destruction and bankruptcy. So the liberals looked south and found several hundred million potential life long welfare burdens in mexico and S. america.

    Then too, prisons are a major source of affirmative action employment.

    At least it looks like they have assimilated somewhere! What we need to do is to arrest and deport ALL Latin residents in the United States who are here as they do not belong in the fabric of the US society. It may be harsh, but for our survival, it needs to happen.

    I’m just tossing out a guess here. I’ve worked in a STATE prison for 20 years in Michigan. It’s absolutely inundated with blacks as one would imagine with Detroit, Saginaw, Flint nearby. I would guess that the huge number of Latinos vs. the relatively small percentage of blacks in FEDERAL prisons would be due to blacks committing “petty” felonies. They are street corner dealers, small time thugs. The blacks in state prison are too stupid to even attempt anything that the Feds would bother with. They would be considered nuisance criminals.

    They could never develop the organizational skills necessary to move drugs internationally, so the DEA wouldn’t know they existed. They are at the bottom of the dope food chain.

    Just a thought.
