    “Victims of Citizen Crime” has a burial mound that’s around 100 times as big.

    Per the very right leaning Cato Institute, undocumented immigrants have a lower rate of murder convictions per capita, and they are a small fraction of the general population.

    Not that anyone should believe Varvel cares about the vicims.

    Countries are not emptying their prisons and “insane asylums” (19th century term) into America as Trump alleges, although Castro did do this way back when. A crime can happen to anyone anywhere, and the implication that massive numbers of people entering the US are causing some kind of crime wave is simply a fantasy. There are lots of reasons to oppose these people coming here, but crime is really not one of them.

    Well done Gary Varvel – illegal immigration is a huge problem as the cartels help transport people to the border and arrange for some to be sent into sweatshops to work and others into prostitution. Apparently, they have a phone number to call, and they give it to border agents to call and verify they are expected. If the illegal immigrant does not send money to the cartel, then the cartels knows where the illegal immigrant’s families are and will harm or kill their families if they are not paid. The cartels are a huge problem and the number of females raped and/or sexual molested enroute to the border should cause more people to realize closing our border is an immediate need. Biden can do so by executive order and putting into place policies that the former President had in place as that would be a good place to start. Does congress to act, yes but the democrats have a horrible record of not keeping their end of the bargain – see the law that Reagan signed, and the democrats agreed to go more afterward and of course didn’t. One of the biggest slaps in the face is to people from foreign countries who are endeavoring to do it legally and it takes a long time to do this legally. They want to follow the law (what a concept) and all these others enter our country illegally begin by breaking the law. What a wonderful way for them to show what they think about America, not a great start. It is beyond humorous to me see dem mayor, congressional reps and governors of sanctuary cities and states whining about how much it costs and how they do not want anymore. Some are even asking for residents to take some into their homes to live until they get a job and find a place to live. I have not heard of many takers.

    Native born Americans are statistically responsible for many, many times the crimes committed by those of undocumented immigrants. Far more! Trying to scare the dupes for political purposes is an evil tactic! It may work with the MAGAs, but it’s still evil!

    The percentage of undocumented criminals is about the same as the number of citizen criminals. There are always bad guys. It’s just that the crimes of elected officials trying to enslave the female half of the country are covered up by their screaming about the boarder"crisis".

    Here is the funny part, everyone wants to focus on the undocumented murders; of the 58 to 60 murders that occur daily in the U.S., the republican’ts politicize only the illegal alien or immigrant ones occuring every month or so. blaming them on the democrats. The republican’ts in the house, whose job is to regulate the border does nothing because they don’t have dictator don’s approval. Still wondering what he has that he is blackmailing them with? FYI 60% or more of those deaths are caused by white males, should we start refocusing on who is causing the most deaths in this country?

    Although tragic, one example of Republican inaction was the 58 people killed and another 489 injured just at the country music festival in Las Vegas. I wonder what they’ll rule on bumper stocks? And by the way who voted down the bipartisan bill on the border?

    That includes the thousands of deaths from smuggled drugs including fentanyl. It doesn’t matter how much some dislike Varvel ( why they are here, I don’t know), the additional crime and violence from open borders is a major concern. You may not care until it happens to you or someone you love.

    I notice the consistent leftist marching orders in the comments here: American citizens kill more people in the US each day so what’s the big deal when illegals do it? “There are always bad guys,” says one. So your daughter was just brutally murdered by a guy who never should’ve been in this country in the first place? Just deal with it!

    We even got a leftist genius who posted this gem: “Native born Americans are statistically responsible for many, many times the crimes committed by undocumented immigrants.” Who woulda thunk it? Psssttt…native Americans far outnumber illegals Einstein, at least for now.

    French people statistically commit far more crimes in France than other people! People who own gas powered automobiles statistically buy more gas than people who drive EVs. Wow! See how leftist logic works?

    Some wag is going to claim that migrants commit fewer crimes than American citizens. That didn’t do Laken Riley much good did it. “ ICE confirms Georgia student murder suspect entered US illegally, was previously arrested in NYC.” (Fox News). Any migrant convicted of any felony should either be jailed or deported immediately. To many of these criminals are let go by lenient judges and prosecutors in sanctuary cities to commit more crimes. Any deported person who re-enters the country should also be jailed.

    The Republicans in the House recognized the problems at the southern border.. They drew up a list of demands to solve the problem. It was very comprehensive, expensive, but sure to make a bad situation a whole lot better. But, because of the cost, they figured the Democrats would reject it, giving them the bumper sticker quote that the Dems wouldn’t do anything. Then they sat back and smirked at their “owning the liberals’” move..

    The Democrats reacted by accepting the things they asked for, lock, stock and barrel, which would have been a huge step toward actually governing. So, did the Republicans celebrate their victory? Yup, to start out, they did. Then Trump instructed them not to let it pass. So, Johnson says it will never be put to a vote

    WHY?

    BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T WANT TO SOLVE ANY PROBLEMS IN THE FIRST PLACE.If they actually accomplished anything it would make Biden look good. THEY JUST WANTED AN ISSUE FOR TRUMP TO RUN ON, and Biden isn’t giving them any.

    A deal was made.

    The republicans said it was everything they wanted.

    It was gonna be signed.

    The bill died.

    Because the speaker, aka trump’s little johnson, killed it.

    The republicans don’t want resolution.

    They are desperate to keep it problematic, because it’s something they use against the democrats.

    They did the same thing with abortion. They spent years complaining about it, but with trumps scotus, they killed it, and then the dog was stuck with the car it caught.

    trump had both houses and the white house and he didn’t fix it.

    If you want the border closed, take down the “HELP WANTED AT LESS THAN MINIMUM WAGE” signs.

    Then arrest the rich people whose corporations make profit by not having to provide a decent wage, or safety, or benefits, and the border would run dry.

    The cartoon probably is more representative of reality than Mr. Varvel meant because it shows one grave. Trump alone could take credit for probably thousands of Covid deaths, hate crimes and keeping automatic weapons available for lunatics to shoot children and concert goers.

    Absolutely, one murder is one murder too many.

    To read some of these comments and to note the choices of cartoonists like Mr. Varvel, one would imagine that murders committed by Americans do not count.

    I guess I should agree, as I know for a fact that if someone is about to murder me, I will be far happier if the murderer is an American citizen.

    “Newcomers” This new identity for illegals reminds me of the sci-fi series “Alien Nation”

    Where from Wikipedia – “The storylines often are morality plays on the evils of racism and bigotry, using Newcomers as the discriminated minority. As fictional extraterrestrial immigrants, the Newcomers could stand in for social issues about various races, as well as sexual minorities such as gays and lesbians, and would invert the usual expectations.”

    The U.S. border was closed January 20, 2021. There is no “open border policy” and has not been under Biden. The fact is that in those sanctuary cities that Abbott and DeSantis sent immigrants, violent crime is down. Illegal immigration is back down to the levels during Obama’s Admin, after spiking up during tRump’s admin.

    For three years Biden and the Democrats have said the border is closed and there is no problem. Now that it’s an election year with the blue sanctuary cities and state in a panic over illegals, the mostly Democrat citizens bitterly complaining about the largess bestowed on illegals, the citizenry in general screaming about the crime, murder and mayhem caused by illegals, now they’re concerned about it. They try to blame the Republicans, but was they who sent H.R. 2 the Borders Security Act to the Senate in May 2023 and it was the Democrats who sat on it. Five times more illegals have crossed into the USA under Biden than under President Trump. Democrats are a hardline opposition party, if a Republican comes up with a solution, no matter how good it is and the problems it solves, the Democrats will oppose it. This is directly why Biden cancelled all of President Trumps E.O.s, policies and directives in his first few days in office and why we’re in such a mess now.

    Give me numbers, not opinions. Statistically, according to law enforcement statistics, while immigrants are more likely to be profiled and/or arrested for suspected crimes, natural born Americans commit the majority of crimes, both violent and white collar. Especially white collar.

    We love our hot-button issue, huh? Every time we’ve gotten close to real Congressional action on fixing the immigration “system” in this country, it has been shot down (usually by the GOP) for political purposes. The notion of an “open border” is pure rhetorical bullsh*t. The statistics show that the crime rate among immigrants is LOWER than that of the native born population.
