... Secondly, being here illegally is actually a crime, does this link you provide take that into account when weighing their data of "immigrants commit less crime than US born citizens"?
I highly doubt it.
These are the sort of misleading (i.e., fake) statistics Pud is known for.
Here we are given the set of ALL immigrants, instead of just illegal immigrants - which is what the discussion is about - and the resulting crime rate. We should be looking at the crime rate for illegal immigrants only.
In the set of illegal aliens vs the set of all aliens, we have a higher percentage of gang members, cartel members, uneducated people, unskilled people, young men (who have a higher crime rate than society in general), people willing to break immigration law (obviously), and so on. In order to hide the much higher crime rate for these people, they hide it by including ALL immigrants. And no, they don't include illegally entering the country as a crime for the purposes of these statistics.
There really is no end to the lengths the Fake News Media will go to make their agenda seem palatable.
