Editor’s Note – The Illegals Crime Report looks at crimes reported in the United States at the hands of those listed as illegal or undocumented.
According to a recent article by a prominent Washington newspaper, the number of deportations in April was the lowest number ever recorded for that month. “A drop,” the media outlet remarked,” that comes as illegal border crossings remain at a 20-year-high.” As Liberty Nation’s Sarah Cowgill earlier this month pointed out, “… (ICE) sent 2,962 – a 20% decline since March – of non-resident aliens back home from whence they came.” So how has this massive drop in removals affected the rate of crimes allegedly committed by illegal aliens? According to BPR Business and Politics:
“Border officials seized nearly 2,400 more pounds of fentanyl from January to April 2021 than during the same period in 2020, according to Customs and Border Protection.”
That’s a huge increase. During the first four months of this year, officials seized nearly 3,290 pounds of fentanyl. According to Customs and Border Protection (CBP), that compares to around 920 pounds during the same timeframe in 2020.
Fentanyl, an opioid, is around 100 times more potent than morphine, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. In addition, a mere two milligrams can be lethal, and it takes just one kilogram of fentanyl to kill up to 500,000 people. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated that more than 81,000 Americans died from drug overdoses between May 2019 and May 2020 – and those numbers only increased during the pandemic. Fentanyl was the primary narcotic in fatal overdoses. “Synthetic opioids such as fentanyl were behind overdoses in 37 of the 38 U.S. jurisdictions where data was available, including 10 states that reported over a 98% increase in deaths due to synthetic opioids,” the CDC reported.
Fentanyl is obviously not the only drug being smuggled across the border into the U.S. Since January, border officials have seized nearly 220,000 pounds of narcotics, including around 128,800 pounds of marijuana and just about 50,000 pounds of methamphetamine, according to CBP.
President Joe Biden has been adamant about undoing the former commander in chief’s immigration policies. Allowing more illegal aliens inside the country has caused a crisis at the border. Agents make do with limited resources while illegal immigrants will only be deported after committing a crime that rises to the level of a national security threat. As LN’s Ms. Cowgill explained:
“The key phrase is ‘limited law enforcement resources.’ One of the only reasons for having a federal government is to implement national security measures. But the Biden administration is slashing the border budget and reallocating funds for infrastructure projects instead, which is irritating friends and enemies in southwest states.”
This brings us to another, more sensitive and terrifying topic: child abuse. Liberty Nation’s Illegals Crime Report has consistently reported on the horrors allegedly committed against children. Are these atrocities occurring more since the reversal of former President Donald Trump’s strict immigration reform?
The organization North Carolinians For Immigration Reform And Enforcement (NCFIRE) recently released its April 2021 figures for illegal alien crimes:
Each month, the North Carolina organization NCFIRE posts a list of sexual crimes committed against children by illegal immigrants. The numbers are staggering – especially considering that they’re just for one state. The last four months’ statistics show:
- 17 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 55 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 33 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 100 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 17 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 70 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 21 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 200 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
In all likelihood, these numbers barely represent a drop in the bucket of just how many children are being sexually abused nationwide by people who are in the United States illegally. Lax immigration controls and so-called sanctuary cities could be said to be facilitating factors. Americans perhaps need to ask themselves how humane and compassionate it is to allow the continuation of policies that do little to prevent such activities.
