Almost HALF of All Federal Criminal Cases Filed in Border States, So Is Trump Right?

Hey, media, Donald Trump will take your apology now for scoffing when he says illegals are all too often of the criminal class. Why? Because now we find out that nearly half of all criminal cases filed by the government are filed in the five districts on the southern border, those districts that just happen to have the most illegals.

The media (and some compliant, foolish Republicans) have been attacking Trump for saying that too many illegals streaming across our border are the least desirable types and that all too often they are criminals far and above merely breaking our immigration laws.

But now CNSNews has found that almost half our criminal cases are filed in those same districts illegals have flocked to.

According to data released by the U.S. Justice Department, 41.7 percent of the federal criminal cases that U.S. attorneys filed in U.S. district courts in fiscal 2014 were in the five U.S. attorneys’ districts that sit along the U.S.-Mexico border.

In fact, the five districts that sit along the border — those for Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Western Texas and Southern Texas — were the top five in the country for criminal cases filed in U.S. district courts.

The office of the U.S. attorney for Western Texas led the nation last year in filing criminal cases in U.S. district court, according to the United States Attorneys’ Annual Statistical Report for Fiscal 2014.

During the fiscal year, according to Table 1 in the report, the U.S. attorney for Western Texas filed 5,832 criminal cases in U.S. district court.

By contrast, there are 17 U.S. attorneys’ districts that sit in the lower 48 states along the Canadian border or the Great Lakes. These 17 districts, which run from the Western District of Washington to the District of Maine, filed a combined total of 5,257 criminal cases in U.S. district courts in fiscal 2014.

So, Trump will take your apology, now.

But the fact is, supporters of illegals have blood on their hands.
