Issue Voting and Immigration: Do Restrictionist Policies Cost Congressional Republicans Votes?

George Hawley, Social Science Quarterly, December 20, 2012

Objective

I test the hypothesis that Latino voters were less likely to support Republican incumbents with strong anti-immigration records in the 2006 congressional elections in comparison to Republicans with less restrictive records. I also test whether non-Hispanic white voters were similarly sensitive to incumbent immigration records when determining vote choice.

Method

To examine these questions, I created hierarchical models in which incumbent immigration records, individual views on immigration, and an interaction between the two were used to predict vote choice in the 2006 midterm elections. Individual-level data were provided by the 2006 Cooperative Congressional Election Study and incumbent immigration records were provided by NumbersUSA.

Results

This analysis found little or no evidence suggesting that Latino voters are less likely to support Republican incumbents with anti-immigration records. There was evidence suggesting that vote choice among non-Hispanic whites was influenced by incumbent records on immigration, but the effect varied according to the respondent’s own views on immigration.

Conclusion

This study found no evidence that incumbent Republicans could increase their share of the Latino vote by embracing less restrictive immigration policies. In fact, doing so may cost them votes among non-Hispanic whites.

    Conclusion:

    “Non-Hispanic whites” (regular Americans) want a homeland, “Latinos” want gibsmedat welfare.

    So easy that anyone can get it. Anyone but a typical Republican, so it seems.

  • Eagle_Eyed

    This needs to be emailed to every beltway GOP “strategist,” starting with Karl Rove.

    • Bill

      I’ve already written the RNC yesterday. I informed them that I have been a registered Republican for over 40 years, and that if even ONE – saying it again ONE – Republican in the House or Senate betrays us yet again and votes either for this immigration reform/amnesty nonsense OR for a new gun ban, I was DONE with the Republican Party forever. That henceforth I would always vote for a good Independent, third party or dark horse candidate over a Republican – or just stay home. I told them they have betrayed us for the last time, and this time if they do, their party is forevermore DEAD as far as white, conservative Americans are concerned. I told them that if any of them betray us – even one – including even McCain alone – I was finished with the Republican Party and would henceforth register as an Independent and never vote for a Republican again. And I meant it. With name, zip code and email address to back it up.

      • Eagle_Eyed

        I’m not going to punish the good ones but I get your sentiment. Hell, how many of us stayed home because we saw no reason of voting for Mitt the milquetoast? Had Romney campaigned on immigration who knows what would have happened.

        • Bill

          I’ve thought about that. There are a few good ones. Frankly, though, if the GOP betrays us again in these two issues, then any TRUE Conservative should forever after be ashamed to be called a Republican and should switch to the Independent classification. Those good ones constantly have the ground cut out from under them by the GOP Treason Lobby majority.

          • Bill

            OR, the Tea Party should break out of the Republican party umbrella and form their own party, after which they need to divest themselves of their timid approach to immigration and black realities, and boldly proclaim themselves not just tax conservatives, but Conservatives representing the entire set of values held by our founding fathers and as the White Party unabashedly. And they should do it very quickly.

      • RisingReich

        Bills post is what needs to be sent but I still don’t think they’d get the message even if a millon or ten were sent.
        I myself wish them a swift death.

        • Bill

          I agree with you. The GOP Treason Lobby with McCain as the poster boy will never “get it”. However, the huge and angry outcry during Bush’s attempted amnesty stopped it dead in it’s tracks. It can be done. But change the GOP’s mindset? Nah. Ultimately they will kill their party. After all, our anger was pretty clear during Bush’s attempt, and here they are trying it again with McCain AGAIN leading the charge. And I do think the GOP is just too much the stupid party this time to even listen to the huge outcry that they must be hearing right now. I think they will go for it despite that this time. If they then likewise agree to a new gun ban, the party of Ape Lincoln will finally be dead. By their own hand.

      • George White

        I did the same thing. ALL Republicans should sent them a warning. They might just heed it.

        • Bill

          They MIGHT heed it again. But learn from it? Doubtful.

          • An ability to learn implies the person has that innate capacity to learn. Now, remember why even we conservatives call the GOP the stupid party.

  • bigone4u

    So the study tells us that the rational policy for Republicans is to favor restrictive immigration policies. Let’s see if the lily-livered Republicans have the guts to do it. I’m not holding my breath.

    • The__Bobster

      Restrictive policies, with mass deportations would be ideal. Oh, and the anchor babies and the ones fraudulently amnestied in 1986 would have to go, too.

  • Luca

    EXTRA, EXTRA, read all about it! Come on all you immigrants let’s head to El Norte! Free school, free lunches, free medical, drivers licenses with no insurance, work tax-free, free legal at ACLU and when you cross illegally you get amnesty and “a path to citizenship”. What’s not to like? Oh, and as a side bonus you get to drive-out and displace all those darn gringos. Come one, come all, before the window closes. Complements of Obama and the Democratic Party along with a few token delusional Republicans.

    And you wonder why border crossings are up?

  • Jefferson

    7 million registered Republican voters stayed home on election day 2012 . How many millions more registered Republican voters will stay home on election day 2016, if the ultra wealthy GOP elites throws it’s White base under the bus in order to bring in more Brown labor from 3rd world countries because they are too cheap to hire a White American person to clean their house, cook their meals, and take care of their kids.

    These cheap skate GOP elites know they can not get away with paying a White American minimum wage to be their domestic servants. That is why they would rather hire a Nicaraguan for example to do the job, because they will work for peanuts.

    • The__Bobster

      You forgot about the green cards they want to give to brown foreigners to depress the wages of those uppity White American engineers.

  • Athling

    The Republican party has erred for the last time. Not only are Latinos in general significantly to the left of white Americans but studies now show that Latinas are the most liberal voting bloc in the country.

    The Republican solution to their lack of Hispanic support at the polls? Allow millions more of them into the country through defacto amnesty programs. The only way Republicans can gain Hispanic votes is by moving to the left with their policies at least as far left as the Democrats. This, of course, will then cause the Republicans to lose even more of their dwindling conservative base.

    The death of the Republican party as we know it at the national level is now certain. They have written their own death certificate.

    • Jefferson

      But John McCain said Hispanics have “family values” and there for that makes them a trillion times more likely to be “natural Republicans” than us racist White Gringos.

      • Vonhauer

        We were lied to. Good and plenty. Family values apparently DO stop at the Rio Grande.

      • fakeemail

        They have “family values” if that means breeding like cucarachas at the tax payer’s expense.

      • Family values? What in the hell does that mean? That Nacho and Lupita never get married so they can get all those EITC’s for their muchachos?

        John McCain is an idiot. It’s time to retire him from the Senate. I guess no one ever told him that he should leave when he’s at the top of his game.

      • Sam

        I think I can explain the whole Latino family values thing.

        People in very poor countries tend to have stronger family values, because family unity is a survival mechanism for places where the government has broken down. People without education tend to oppose gay rights, because we’re probably hard wired to feel that way, and only change that opinion through education. Women tend to be sexually conservative in places where they know the government isn’t going to pay for their babies. It’s nothing to do with family values, everything to do with survival in a place where there are no functional government social services. Add in free social services, and Latino family values are no longer needed and they are free to act on their real beliefs.

    • Vonhauer

      That first link is fairly mind blowing. Just the opposite of what we have been told about Hispanics and the way they are likely to vote. Conservatism is chiefly a white phenomenon. Nonwhites simply dont share our political views. Letting even more of them (millions more) into the country is political and perhaps racial suicide.

      • The best part of having been a student, so to speak, of one Samuel Todd Francis, (RIP), and his way of thinking, is realizing that you can’t divorce an abstract ideology from its concrete real world (“cui bono”) beneficiaries. And also, forget all that bull hockey you’ve heard about the “power of ideas,” because ideas do not and cannot possibly have power. Only people can and do have power. Sam was never interested in the power of ideas as he was the ideas of power.

        Only the Stupid Party would consider importing and legalizing more people who vote against them as a solution to people who vote against them.

        • Vonhauer

          So true. Sam Francis was a man of remarkable vision.

          • And not just on race.

            I’m going to be a bit circumspect, because I’m not sure how much of this I should be saying. But when Sam took over the editorship of a publication I’m sure some of you are familiar with, in late 1999, the publication of an organization that deals a lot with race which I’m sure a lot of you have heard of, his very first front page article he approved (but someone else wrote it) had nothing to do with race, but was about the foolishness of repealing the Glass-Steagall Act, the repeal had just happened. I remember all the grief from a lot of people that Sam took for doing that.

            Well, this didn’t happen until he moved on to the next world, way too soon, but with the wall of separation between banking and investment took down, (which is what repealing Glass-Steagall did), when banks and investment houses melded, the latter’s asset base largely built on (sarcasm) the rock solid foundation of $720,000 mortgage issued to Hispanic illegal alien strawberry pickers making $14,000 a year (end sarcasm), when housing inevitably went bust (who could predict the inability of a Hispanic illegal alien strawberry picker making $14,000 a year to make the monthly note on a $720,000 mortgage, after all?), investment houses went bust, and with no walls between they and banks, a lot of banks went bust, thereby “necessitating” TARP to be a lot more expensive than it otherwise needed to be.

            Sam was hardly the world’s primo economist, and hated the paradigm of “economic man” (for good reason), but he knew a good economic argument from a bad one when he saw it.

        • Only the Stupid Party would consider importing and legalizing more people who vote against them as a solution to people who vote against them.

          It’s just one of the many reasons why we call the GOP the stupid party.

          • rebelcelt

            But,most of us,(Jared Taylor excluded) did not have the benefit of a top tier education.So we must trust these gifted politicians opinions. Never mind that they consistently lose presidential races with unemployment at 17%. They were smart enough to never point out that unemployment in its traditional measurements was far higher than the 8.8 % that the Goverment stated. Just because the Republicans consistently lose winnable elections does not mean they are not smart. Romney never laid out an economic plan he just kept saying that he agreed with Obama, and he barely lost.

          • But,most of us,(Jared Taylor excluded) did not have the benefit of a top tier education

            Except I don’t know what that means anymore. If we’re to believe the current official story, Susan Rice-a-Roni, a woman with Oxford and a Rhodes Scholarship in her CV, got “bamboozled” by the “it’s the video’s fault” nonsense that the Obama White House peddled after Benghazi. But yours truly, with his pedestrian undergraduate business school education from the well known public university in town, never fell for the “it’s the video’s fault” for even one second.

      The Globalist/Communist: “We must promote massive immigration from Third
      World nations into the western nations. Most of these immigrants
      will flock to our left wing political banners as they dilute the
      conservative European white majority which stands in the way of our eventual
      World Government.”

      The Useful Liberal Idiot: “Xenophobia is wrong! Diversity and multiculturalism
      are our greatest strengths. We are a nation of immigrants. We should always
      serve as a beacon of light for those who want to come here from poorer countries.”

      Here are a list of the Communist goals, as defined and heavily promoted by the Frankfurt School of Cultural Marxism. Review the list and ask yourself – are there any that we cannot place a check mark next to?

      http://www.billmuehlenberg.com/2009/05/11/the-frankfurt-school-and-the-war-on-the-west/

      “They devised strategies by which the destruction of the West could quickly
      and effectively take place: “To further the advance of their ‘quiet’ cultural
      revolution – but giving us no ideas about their plans for the future – the
      School recommended (among other things):

      “1. The creation of racism offences.
      2. Continual change to create confusion.
      3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children.
      4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority.
      5. Huge immigration to destroy identity.
      6. The promotion of excessive drinking.
      7. Emptying of churches.
      8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime.
      9. Dependency on the state or state benefits.
      10. Control and dumbing down of media.
      11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family.”

      So, in essence – what we have seen happen to our beloved, once 90% White European nation – has been a direct result of our having allowed the Communist cancer tumor to be planted within our nation and then we have allowed our treasonous, race traitorous White European elites to get by with refusing to identify that tumor and go after it aggressively and ruthlessly and exterminate it by any means possible.

      This means that this task will be left up to us, people. Steel yourself for the battle that is rapidly arriving at our doorsteps, and do NOT let these Communists disarm us.

    • Tucker

      Outstanding comment, Athling! However, its even more serious than even your comments describe.

      Over the years, many individuals who are far wiser and more astute than I have noted that ‘Socialism’ and/or ‘Marxism’ are actually ideologies which are fundamentally Communism-lite, and they’ve also pointed out countless examples of how these two complimentary ideologies were simply transitional ideologies that eventually morphed into full blown, ruthless, dictatorial, hard core Communism.

      I remember listening to one of Dr. Pierce’s Saturday broadcasts years ago, where he was discussing how effectively Communism and Communist/Marxist and Socialist ideologies appeal to the sort of low IQ, uneducated, unambitious, unmotivated and least talented, non-white masses of humanity – such as what can be found in great abundance in all of the third world caliber nations of the world. Jared Taylor, in a few of his AmRen Conference talks, has also pointed out that the ideology of ‘Communism’ has never successfully taken hold and endured inside nations that are historically White European – facts that Lenin and Trotsky also noted in their many writings. According to Pierce, Communism appealed to life’s losers – because it appealed to their deep rooted sense of resentment for being at the bottom of the social and economic ladder, and also it became an artificial placebo-like drug that would help them massage their egos and instead of being forced to admit that they were losers, they could simply transfer blame for all of their failures in life to the designated and heavily demonized ‘bogeyman’ that the Communist leadership would select to be the primary tar baby.

      So, be forewarned, fellow White Americans. These low skilled, poorly educated, low IQ, angry and parasitic brown skinned people who are being allowed to flood into our native homelands by the millions are not simply enamored with the disease of ‘liberalism’. They are the perfect demographic group to import in order to create an environment that will be most fertile for planting the seeds of hard core Communism.

      The Globalist/Communist: “We must promote massive immigration from Third
      World nations into the western nations. Most of these immigrants
      will flock to our left wing political banners as they dilute the
      conservative European white majority which stands in the way of our eventual
      World Government.”

      The Useful Liberal Idiot: “Xenophobia is wrong! Diversity and multiculturalism

        Number 10 should have been placed at the top of the list.

      • Athling

        For the first time in recorded history major indigenous populations, those of European descent, are voluntarily becoming minorities in their own homelands, rather than through war, famine, or disease. No other people on earth have done this. The enormity of the tragedy is beyond belief.

        I am aware of the communist issue and its deadly effects on white nations. Up to this point we have relied mainly upon the Republican Party to protect and preserve America in its traditional form, as a nation built by and for European-derived white people. All our institutions and traditional culture are derived from whites. Many Republicans no longer seem to understand this. You simply cannot allow tidal waves of racial aliens into your geographic borders and expect to maintain your nation as a reflection of those who created it. This is true for all nations for all times. No nation can survive racial dissolution. You know this. I know this. The Republican Party needs to know this. Apparently, the only remaining democracy on the planet that still understands this is Israel.

        We’ll see how the Republicans handle this latest push for amnesty. We are right at the very edge of a demographic no return.

  • The__Bobster

    Bush the First’s share of the invader vote actually went down after Reagan gave them amnesty in 1986.

    I, for one, will never vote Republican again if they give in to the Treason Lobby.

    • alas

      Vote in the primaries. Get our candidates on the tickets. Then, if they don’t win and the choice is for a RINO, then don’t vote. Otherwise we give up the fight and lose it all.

      • RisingReich

        Voting isn’t going to solve this. November should have put you on notice.

    • Agreed. I have called my state’s GOP committee and told them so.

  • wattylersrevolt

    All you need to know is this:
    The inner core of the Republican Party is comprised of 1) homosexual pedaphiles-the Washington Times did a series on the rampant pedaphilic activity that occured in the Reagan White House and it apparently was occuring during the Jorge W Bush admistration where there was a revolving door for Male Prostitutes…one of whom was a fake journalist and appeared as a news source for Sean Hannity and who advertised his services to USMC and a revolving door for teenage boys-and 2) corporate whores. That is to say:the DNA of the inner core of the Republican Party is most definitely Satanist-Devil Worshippers who exist for no other reason than to indulge their very repellant and monumental sexual pervisions..and to provide the Corporations with an unlimited supply of post-1965 nonwhite scab labor.

    The labor policy of the Corporate owned Republican Party is very very very low wages for millions of Native Born White Americans..that is to say brutal wage slavery…that is to say:to deny millions of Native Born White Americans of the wonderfull benefits of a severe labor scarcity(immigration moratorium enthusiasts such as Pat Buchannan and John Derbyshire are both eager to deprive millions of Native Born White Americans of the wonderfull benefits of a severe labor scarcity..can you believe this!!!!).

    So….here is my question:why is the point of the saving the Republican Party? Obvious answer:there is none.

    Next Point:if the Republican Party could get the political allegiance of a majority of millions of hispanics,asians,and muslims…it would just mean that hispanics,asians, and muslims would be able to vote for the very very rapid race-replacement of the Native Born White American Majority at election time by voting Republican. So all the so called “very” clever wonk analysis about how nonwhites will never vote Republican…the party of Devil worshipping Satanists… is so incredibly beside the point. This, comrades, is not a debate we should be participating in.

    The rotting stinking rancid corpse of the Republican Party is the last barrier that stands in the way of a full-blown Native Born White American Race-Revolt against Race-Replacement at the hands of high fertility and very hostile nonwhites…you should never vote for a rotting stinking rancid corpse for President of the United States and the US Senate…it is just common sense and public hygene that a rotting stinking rancid corpse be desposed of as quickly as possible…in this case, toss the corpse into a garbage heap…show the proper respect for the Party of Lincoln.

    • wattylersrevolt

      I suppose it should really read:the Party of the Syphilitic Lincoln.

    • Katherine McChesney

      Are you referring to the Franklin Conspiracy?

      • seek

        I remember when that broke, around 1990, during the tenure of President George H.W. Bush. A black real estate/banking crook from Omaha in effect had the keys to the White House, procuring orphaned adolescent and teenaged boys from Boys Town (located in Omaha) for eager GOP male bigwigs. But hey, he was broadening the party base. Why complain? The details of that scandal will creep you out.

  • Anon

    That’s not a very important question. Ever since 1965, it has been overwhelmingly obvious that white people want the US to be a whites only country. Prior to that, our will was easily made manifest by a legitimate democratic process. But, around that time, despite OVERWHELMING opposition to non-white immigration, mysteriously, our borders were opened to a flood on non-white immigration. When laws were passed on a state level, to do something about it, an unelected oligarchy appointed by our supposed representatives in both parties, simply ignored the law, misusing the powers of the judiciary. Despite great concern over this judicial activism, neither party would do anything about it, no matter how much noise was made.

    The result could not be more crystal clear. Most people simply don’t vote. They don’t do it because it’s pointless….there is no legitimate representation in this country. We are a de facto communist oligarchy that only pretends to be otherwise in order to shift blame and forestall a revolution. Recent behaviors by our government (ie the attempted gun grab) only make this much more obvious as the current regime loses interest in even pretending. Certainly, no one, in either party, cares much of anything about what any demographic thinks about what they are doing……that’s the sort of thing ELECTED officials care about. Not something the appointed (or the self-appointed) could care less about.

    A much more important question to ask is if, immigration opponents can get any traction whatsoever by supporting republicans over democrats. And the answer to that question is an emphatic no. Another way to pose this question is, despite the conclusions of this study, and the obvious and intense resistance to non-white immigration, why has neither party used it to gain or maintain power? The answer to that is because it is irrelevant. Our elections are controlled by the media like sporting events. And where the outcome isn’t what they want, its simply rigged. This is WHY, no matter who you vote for and no matter how much bipartisan support an issue has, the government always does the opposite….and doesn’t care about any backlash. What THEY care about is the possibility that WE will 1) figure this out, 2) stop cooperating and 3) are well armed enough that they couldn’t force us to do what we currently do now willingly.

    Vote? Don’t make me laugh. Buy lots and lots of guns and lots and lots of ammunition. Consider making your living in the grey market without the US of American dollars. That is what will get our governments begrudging cooperation. At least it has in the past.

    The worst thing you could do is hand over your guns to Obama. If you do that, might as well simply snap on your slave collar now.

  • SintiriNikos

    The latinos will never vote Repug. What needs to be done is (whenever there is no black candidate on the other side) hammer home to blacks how horrible hispanics are to them. That’s how you can win the black vote without offering goodies. Of course this only works if the other candidate is not black.

  • George White

    Don’t listen to the trolls here. We CAN stop this if we fight. Mitch McConnell, Jeff Sessions, Mike Lee, David Vitter, Lamar Smith, Steve King, and Peter King have all spoken against this amnesty proposal already. Their names were listed on NumbersUSA yesterday to thank them. I think that some of the people who post here are trolling for the enemy and trying to get people to feel that the situation is hopeless. it’s not. We stopped the last amnesty and we can do it again. Call the Senate and the Congress. Write letters and emails. A wall of opposition can stop them in their tracks. I spend every evening on the phone, leaving messages to Senators and Congressman. I write scores of letters and emails. I tell them about my California diversity stories which are horror stories. All of the GOP cannot possibly be as stupid and despicable as John McCain. In fact, most of them must fully realize that the brown invasion needs to be stopped or the GOP is surely history. Obama wasn’t elected because of that tiny number of latinos…Obama was elected because of millions of stupid self hating whites. Forty percent of our brothers and sisters are ethno-masochistic idiots. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to find that some of them are right here trying to make people feel hopeless and give up.

    • I think it had to do more with the public sector unions wanting a democrat as president. Almost half the workforce is a part of the tax and spend machine.

    • Vonhauer

      Trolls? Perhaps you are not aware of executive orders, recess appointments, and so on that Obama has used and will continue to use extensively? Holding back the floodgates of immigration was a race against time. Demography makes it so. Senior, high ranking senators like Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and others have also thrown their weight behind “immigration reform.” The writing has been on the wall for some time now.

      • Athling

        There is hope. I just don’t see it in the Republican Party. Right now, there aren’t many of us. We have little political power or influence. Unlike every other race of people in this country whites generally do not think in terms of their own racial interests. How can this be changed? What needs to happen to increase our numbers?

        I think the answer is fairly obvious. Whites are going to have to suffer even to the point of oppression at the hands of non-whites. This will help to unify whites and force them to start thinking about their own racial reality. That race does in fact exist, race does matter, and that they are being persecuted because of theirs.

        The sooner this happens the better and the now ineffective Republican Party dying will be a major step in that direction.

        That is my opinion. Others may disagree.

        • Jefferson

          Not even the 1992 L.A riots, the O.J Simpson trial, the Knoxville massacre, Tawana Brawley, Trayvon Martin, Hurricane Katrina, the 1970s Zebra murders, Black panthers screaming about killing White babies, and the re-election of Hussein Obama was able to wake up White America and make it more racially aware of the dangers of NAMs and to think of their own racial interests.

          If none of that wakes up White America, than nothing will.

          • George White

            I’m not convinced that Obama won fairly. In fact, I’m convinced that there was huge voter fraud. The polls actually had favored Romney by a point or two. The Dems vote early and often, dead Dems vote, busloads of illegals vote, etc.
            You can’t tell me that election was on the up and up.

        • George White

          I think that the awareness is greater than you think, and growing exponentially. people are quiet about it, maybe, but they KNOW. Look at the reaction to the gun grab.

        Your comment is silly. I’m well aware of everything you mentioned and more. The FACT is that the very few GOP idiots on board with amnesty are a tiny minority. It’s the same fools with the same plan as last time, and last time it was stopped. I just gave you a solid list of Republicans who have ALREADY stood up against this legislation. You have to realize that the government KNOWS that if they push too hard, all of those angry white men with guns are going to REACT. This is not some kind of little game. Everybody concerned realizes that the fate of this country is on our hands now. If we don’t fight back, our grandchildren will be facing a fate like that of whites in South Africa. You damn well better stand up now and give them hell.

    The GOP elite treats it’s White voter base the same way that that an abusive husband treats his wife.

    • David Ashton

      Same in England with the “Con” Party.

    • The GOP’s base has wised up just like abused wives usually do. When noone who makes under 7 figures a year appears at their convention, maybe then the GOP will catch on.

    Does anyone have any concrete ideas of how to hasten the death of the Stupid Party?
    I’m SO completely sick and tired of reading about their blathering lunacy disguised as ‘policy’.

    A pool of cheap labor with the costs pushed from the employers to the taxpayers.
    The UK now faces a similar problem from Bulgaria and Romania.

    Sotomayer, the latina Justice, came to Redwood City last week for a sold-out performance for her constituents…Redwood City, in the heart of the SF Peninsula, is now 40% mexican.

    Brown Power. Just myself and a couple others “stopped ” Redwood City a few years ago from crowing about adopting Redwood City as a Sanctuary City. It only take a couple of people sometimes.

    Nevertheless, Redwood City is de facto a sanctuary city. I just got crime stats from the local cities of Redwood City, Menlo Park, and Palo Alto. Burglary rates have shot up about 65% over last year in Menlo Park and Palo Alto. Redwood City is the prime source of Mexicans who are apparently doing most of the burglaries. Then the gangs continue to shoot it out, almost all bullets directed toward one-another…so far.

    I am going to do my third crime study on our area. The Liberals don’t appreciate it, or at least have not ..in the past.

    All you have to do is go to your state Attorney General and you will probably find easy access by Counties…if your state is like California. Cities are another thing, which apparently California AG does not do…

    So, it is more work to have only the raw data which you have to collate it yourself. Interestingly, Redwood City did the collation for me for several years worth of data on race and sex. Maybe they were willing to do it because they are NOT trying to suppress the numbers like the Menlo Park PD and the Palo Alto PD apparently are doing. Menlo Park and Palo Alto do not have bullet-proof glass in their police dept. walk-in sections. Redwood City PD recently put up a bullet-proof glass cage for their walk-in.

    Take a walk on the wild side…in Redwood City, San Mateo County’s government center (as they call it…with jail)..walk down the Courthouse corridors ….almost all mexers waiting for their trials.

    I grew up in Redwood City…in the 50s as a kid…could go anywhere safely.
