A new study coming to light through the federal 287(g) program says that in the Phoenix area, 22 percent of all felonies are committed by illegal aliens. In the Chicago area, 19 percent of all prison inmates are illegal. In Collier County, Florida, more than 20 percent of all arrests are for crimes allegedly committed by illegals, and on and on.
In fact, according to federal data, about a half million serious crimes have been committed by illegal aliens over the past 10 years.
