Bigger Problem

We've often looked at immigration as a problem faced primarily by cities like Las Cruces, El Paso, Tucson, or San Diego. This Week's APD SOP fiasco got us looking around at crime statistics and what we found was to say the least, eye opening.
INS/FBI Statistical Report on Undocumented Immigrants

2006 (First Quarter) INS/FBI Statistical Report on Undocumented Immigrants

CRIME STATISTICS 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal aliens.

86% of warrants for murder in Albuquerque are for illegal aliens.

75% of those on the most wanted list in Los Angeles, Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.

24.9% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally

40.1% of all inmates in Arizona detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally

48.2% of all inmates in New Mexico detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally

29% (630,000) convicted illegal alien felons fill our state and federal prisons at a cost of $1.6 billion annually

53% plus of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens.

50% plus of all gang members in Los Angeles are illegal aliens from south of the border.

71% plus of all apprehended cars stolen in 2005 in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California were stolen by Illegal aliens or “transport coyotes".

47% of cited/stopped drivers in California have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 47%, 92% are illegal aliens.

63% of cited/stopped drivers in Arizona have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 63%, 97% are illegal aliens

66% of cited/stopped drivers in New Mexico have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 66% 98% are illegal aliens.

BIRTH STATISTICS 380,000 plus “anchor babies” were born in the U.S. in 2005 to illegal alien parents, making 380,000 babies automatically U.S.citizens.

97.2% of all costs incurred from those births were paid by the American taxpayers.

66% plus of all births in California are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal whose births were paid for by taxpayers
Now before some of you become apoplectic we admit that we are unable to find the original report that these statistics are reputed to come from, but they're literally repeated all over the Internet; which doesn't make them true. Even sites like Snopes.com fail to refute them and other sites like the non-partisan Center for Immigration Studies seem to confirm at least some of the stats in a report entitled Crime and the Illegal Alien. What is undeniably true is that there is a link between illegal immigration (no matter where they're from) and crime.

What we do know is that Albuquerque has a serious property crime problem. Back in June, The Albuquerque Journal reported (Subscription) that 2006 was a "banner year" for property crime. Over 5,000 vehicles were stolen and more than 6,000 homes were broken into. That's almost 14 vehicles per day and almost 17 homes per day.

Our Eyes behind the badge (and sometimes on it) tell us that APD believes that an auto theft ring based out of Mexico is behind a large number of the thefts. We'd be willing to bet that a large number of those involved aren't exactly in this country legally. After all, you don't need to be a legal U.S. resident to get a driver's license in the state.

To make Albuquerque even more inviting, APD's SOP prohibits pursuit unless the suspect is exhibiting reckless behavior before their emergency equipment is engaged. What's worse is that officers believe that criminals know that APD will not pursue.
(Sidebar)
For some reason the most commonly stolen vehicle seems to be a Ford Truck. Good for your local Ford dealer - not so good for you or your insurance rates. If you own an F-150, F-250, or F-350, it'd be a good idea to hide it in your garage; except in the case of a F-350 which probably needs to be hidden in a barn.
(End Sidebar)
What that means to all of us is if APD officer spots a criminal stealing your brand new F-150 and engages his lights, when the suspect flees in your still being paid for pick-up they must let them go. Now that you've recovered from shock, let us say that again. They have to let them go!

Consequently, when a crook sees the red and blue lights of an APD cruiser, they simply keep going. Now if it's the solid reds of the State Police or BCSO, criminals know they've got a problem on their hands. One thing that's absolutely sure, if you create an environment where criminals know that they have a chance they're gonna' to take advantage of it.

It's no different in the immigration game. When illegal aliens enter this country from anywhere - Mexico, France, Central America, even Canada, where do you think they'll go? Where would you go? We'd head to the place with the most available jobs or the most number of potential victims if the crime connection holds, and the least likelihood that we'd get caught. That means sanctuary cities like Albuquerque has become thanks to the new APD SOP.

This is great information that I as a citizen never knew. I think more citizens, both of Albuquerque and of the state should know about this web site so they too can understand how politics affect their lives.

The eye should place ads in the various newspapers giving his web site and a brief explainantion of the infomation provided.

I would start with my school's newspaper; THE DAILY LOBO, ALIBI, THE SOUTH VALLEY INK AND JOURNAL AND TRIBUNE.

Just take out a few ads in these publications and you will increase your readership consideribly.

The citizens have a right to know what is going on behind closed doors in govt!

The illegal immigrant crime statistics thing is probably the stupidest thing I've seen in a long time. Remember the NRA slogan to the effect of "When they outlaw gun ownership only outlaws will own guns"? Well, same thing. "When they outlaw immigrants only criminals will remain illegal." You think immigrant burglar/crack fiends are going to sign up to be deported? Incited hatred for law abiding immigrants, illegal or not, will not accomplish anything.

Anonymous said...

Hey stupid. Your last sentence makes no sense. Law abiding means they respect the laws and are not here illegally! Get a clue!

And while all of this is going on, the FBI and ICE are having internal disputes and are failing to protect our borders so who knows who is coming across. The stats don't surprise me. Illegal activities need to be financed and it is your vehicles that helps fund them just like identity theft funds terrorism...

give me a break. does anyone ever remember 9-11? now we r letting illegals come and go as they please. if they want to come into this country they need to earn the right. they come across the border and they think they have the same constitutional rights...GIVE ME A BREAK!

I don't give a shit what any of you immigration activists say. If people can't go through the normal process(as screwed up as it may be) to become LEGAL citizens of this country, THEY DON'T BELONG HERE. Since when (aside from Albuquerque and this sorry administration) did the law become obsolete? I for one am SICK AND TIRED of watching MY hard earned money go to these people who suck our resources dry. I am not racist, but I AM an american, and I am proud of this country, and I'm fed up with having to step aside so someone who's here illegaly can get better treatment. I totally believe the statistics on this post. There is no doubt in my mind that if we built a huge wall around this country and deported every sinlge person who is here illegaly, our crime rates would plummet. While many come here for better opportunity, the vast majority come here to commit CRIMES of opportunity. This country is just waiting to be plucked, and these criminals know it. So to all you pro-immigration and pro-sanctuary people out there---I hope it's you the illegal with no driver's license and no insurance hits, so YOUR rates go up, and not mine. I hope it's YOUR truck that gets ripped off, and not mine. I hope it's YOUR house that gets burglarized. YOU want them here...YOU suffer the consequences. I think APD shold call ICE on every single one of them. Period.

"Give me your tired, your weak, your huddled masses"...this is the welcome people got when they entered this country LEGALLY. This country was built by immigrants. Not ILLEGAL immigrants. People, like my great grandparents, waited in line for days to get the right to live in this country. They learned the language. They worked hard to make a better life for themselves, and the generations that followed. They EARNED the right to live here. Whatever happened to that? Now these people simply walk across our borders with thier hands out expecting us to take care of them. They come here because countries like Mexico are so corrupt, that their citizens suffer tremeandously. But that's not OUR fault. If you want to live and be a productive citizen in this country, YOU HAVE TO EARN IT. Prove that you're not going to be a criminal. Prove that you can learn the language and go to school and get an education so you can get a good job and not be a leach on the system. If you can't do that, then you don't belong here.

"They have to let them go!"

I think you may have interpreted this new policy in a kind of weird way. Are you saying that if someone is caught stealing your car, the question of whether they live here legally or illegally, will actually have a bearing on whether or not they're arrested and prosecuted for the car theft?

My understanding is that APD simply isn't going after illegal immigrants over _for_ illegal immigration, but for any other sort of crime, forceful action is still an option on the table. Was there some obscure and hidden order (which even _you_ haven't cited yet) that they also release suspects for other types of crimes (e.g. theft), _if_ they have reason to believe the person is here illegally? Sort of a two-wrongs-make-a-right kind of thing?

That's whacked. But I also don't believe it. I skeptical that you believe it, too.

Can anyone please post just one name of an illegal alien who has committed repeated crimes in the Albuquerque area. This is important information and we need to get it out. We know there are thousands of illegal aliens who have been repeatedly arrested for DUI, domestic violence,car theft etc. If we can start getting the names posted, we can verify their status and that will make it an even bigger issue. We will be able to go to crime victims and get their voices heard about what it is like to be victimized by illegal aliens who have been repeatedly arrested, but by APD policy, the officer never called INS. Please help and post the names.

careful with that - there are plenty out there but you are going to find that a unch of them were in custody and ICE didnt put an immigration hold on them... ICE/INS has to put a hold on em' and no matter if they are notified by MDC, the PD or by smoke signal doesnt change the need for a hold to be placed.

Are you coming off of your meth high??? Nobody's inciting hatred for law abiding immigrants....we're saying we hate illegal law breaking immigrants. Whether they're Irish or Mexican who cares, if they're illegal and committing criminal offenses FUCK THEM! If you think this position is harsh you should hear what legal & naturalized aliens have to say about these scumbags....it would make "extraordinary" rendition seem like a time out.

This is a simple issue. Any costs associated with processing these people should be backbilled and be the burden of their home country in the form of trade debits, embargoes, or import tariffs.

JHC wake the fuck up will ya???

here is how Mexico deals with the same issues/ from Assoc. press:

AP, August 16, 2007

Mexican authorities are deporting many of the thousands of Central American migrants who were stranded when a railroad closed.

The government sent hundreds of police and soldiers Tuesday to clear out the U.S.-bound migrants, who for decades have hopped freight cars on the Chiapas-Mayab railway.

In July, U.S.-based Genesee & Wyoming decided to stop operating the Chiapas-Mayab line. Company spokeswoman Jeanette Rosado said damage to railway tracks caused by a 2005 hurricane forced the pullout.

She also said train-hopping migrants delayed operations.

Unfortunately, Central American migrants keep streaming into towns where they once climbed onto the trains. Thousands have been camping along rail lines, waiting for trains that will never come. Extra buses had been contracted to transport deportees from immigration detention centers to the border.

When Governor (wannabe President) Bill said that it was OK for illegals to get drivers licenses, it was for public safety, because now they would be able to get auto insurance and be more responsible (although still illegal) members of society and we'd all be better off. I see that according to the stats, apparently these hard-working, "just want to improve their lives" illegal immigrants are not availing themselves of the Guv's largess and continue to live outside the law (illegally here, not licensed to drive, driving without insurance, etc).

Yet I'm supposed to believe all these liberal immigration activists that most of these illegals are paying taxes, contributing to the economy, doing the work that none of our pampered teenagers would deign to dirty their hands with. The reality is that these people are typically paid a low wage, in cash, off the books, and they send most of it home to their home countries (ever wonder why the billboards advertising money-wiring services are in Spanish??). As far as our teenagers (or any other folks trying to start at the bottom) not doing those menial jobs, it's hard for them to get on when they "can't speak the language of the kitchen", or the construction site, or the hotel services, etc.

Well I don't believe the above-mentioned activists and I feel that ANY efforts to provide sanctuary to these people is wrong, and I will not vote FOR anyone who has worked to those ends. That would be The Guv, The Mayor, The Mayer, and if Brad doesn't denounce his 2001 vote, acknowledge it's stupidity, and work to reverse it....I won't be voting for him either.

I am Hispanic, born in this country as were my parents and grandparents. To the people who are afraid of sounding bigoted, or racist? Most of my hispanic friends, neighbors and relatives all say the same thing, GET RID OF THEM! The value of my neighborhood has gone down, I hear gunshots every night, there are cars parked in every front yard up and down the street, and the whole of the south valley has become Tijuana, or Juarez...the only new business' in the area are Taqueria's, Panaderia's or the guy pushing his cart up and down the streets, which if you have been to Juarez lately is straight out of MX. Trust me, if I went there, and started my own business, there'd be officials all over my ass, not looking the other way like they do here.
Yes I understand some come here and actually work. Yes, I understand the majority are treated like shit when they do, underpaid, shit jobs, etc, BUT they are still here, ILLEGALLY. What part of that do people not understand? If they are here illegally, they need to be made to leave. Giving birth should not be a free pass either. Either keep the kid and put it up for adoption, or deport it with it's mother and only allow it back in when it's mother is legal, and this shit of mommy staggering across to give birth will stop. Illegals are a drain on any country, but NM doesn't have enough money to support the people that are legal, much less the illegals, and it will get no better until the laws are enforced. Most of my family have moved now, we are all getting the hell out of ABQ.

No matter what you call them they have no businees being automatic citizens whom include the entire family in some quasi-legal limbo that costs the American middle class yet more money. Sort of reminds me of the ''Salud'' at Presbyterian hospital bill board along Paseo -- it shows a car seat and states "Free car seat" with the delivery of your baby at their hospital. Well, it aint free, the Salud program and other programs like it are funded totally by US! Google the stats for hospitals in border towns closing, theres a reason for it happening and it aint because Americans arent paying their fair share and more....

I meant it as in it, boy or girl. Are you just trying to find something to be pissed about? If so, then try the fact that our taxes are higher, our standard of living is lower, and our property values are dropping like a rock because of all the illegals in this state. And although I speak spanish, I resent having to order my meals at restaurants in spanish because my server can't speak english. This is America people, not MX, and I'd bet if the canadians started coming in the way the mexicans do, and making you have to learn french you'd resent it.
The exception, is the boat people from vietnam. They came here, learned the language, got jobs - legally, pay their taxes, have insurance, got their citizenship, and they for the most part, work their asses off. They are now having to learn spanish too because they can't deal with the masses here in NM. And even they are leaving in droves and moving elsewhere. So who would you rather let into the country?
I am hispanic, as I said, and I vote, and I pay taxes, and as far back as I know, my family are citizens and legal. I say get them out, so we can take care of ourselves. The person who wrote about presbyterian salud? Right on the money. I would like some of the available care to go to people who are legal, not people who are just here to live off of the rest of us........

To the above posters about Ray -- think hard about those days when the decision was made. We could have had a re-placement from within but someone went out of their way to taint every qualified candidate with a very broad brush called "evidence". The brush that person swung was a unit she was incharge of, and it was used throughly to destroy people who had no involvement at all with that unit in any capacity yet were deemed politically damaging - so they went "outside" the Dept. for someone who was politically solvent. Ray himself is neither particularly good or bad, just available at the right time. And he made sense at that time. You want to make yourself sick, think about who the NEXT chief could be if it comes from within....anyone still young enough to be politically controlled at all is a trainwreck.

Purchased only in the sense that I paid the tuition, myself alone by working for the money. Never got a single grant or handout, although once in the 90s I got some money for books from the CPOA. To yourself and everyone else who is dead set on helping illegal immigrants I say this; go to a small town in Appalachia or the Ozarks and help an American kid there who has no insurance, or how about a kid from Watts or Compton who's mom works 3 jobs. After we get that all straightened out we can start to let in and assist foreign nationals. Oh and your snotty comment about degrees, probably means you don't have more than high school which Im sure is fine and more than enough to provide you a supervisory post in City Govt. When I retired the minions who were getting the green light for higher positions were about 50% uneducated but they had a striking commonality. That said, if you honestly can look around and not see any deterioration in this country from your childhood to the present than you either live in a really great neighborhood or you are truly such a true believer in the liberal mindset that you wont believe until we are just another France or England (currently overrun and changing their laws to provide a quasi 'sharia' so they dont offend people who want to take over and destroy them). I personally wont be back to this blog becuase for one it has been over run by troglydytes who spout hate in an attempt to discredit city employees and two because I imagine that eventually someone is going to investigate something said here and backtrack the URLs of posters here.
