Clear up crime: make everyone migrate!

The excellent blog Immigration Impact (see link on this page) in a recent post ‘Separating fact from fiction about immigrants and crime‘, said this:

“Numerous national and state-level studies over the past hundred years have found immigrants are less likely than the native-born to commit crimes or be in prison, and high rates of immigration are not associated with higher crime rates.  Harsh immigration policies are not effective in fighting crime because the vast majority of immigrants are not criminals.”

The blog led me to this page that states:

“For every ethnic group without exception, incarceration rates among young men are lowest for immigrants, even those who are the least educated’. The facts are the same in Australia.

Immigration Impact reports on the scurrilous piece of reporting in the Washington Post Attitudes Shift on Illegal Residents: Some Link Crime In Montgomery To Immigration,which called to mind the dreadful piece in the Adelaide Advertiser a couple of weeks ago. What can we do to reduce fear of crime?

Base action on facts and campaign for everyone to migrate – anywhere. Then crime rates would drop.
