New Study Found No Link Between Immigration and Increased Crime in Forty Years of Data

"SNIP...........


Politicians often claim that there is a relationship between immigration patterns and increased crime. In a study done at the University at Buffalo however, no links were found between the two. According to the findings, immigration instead appears to be linked to reductions in some types of crimes instead.

Robert Adelman, an associate professor of sociology at UB and the paper’s lead author, says that the results are very clear and that the research shows stable and strong evidence that, on average, immigration and crime are not linked across U.S. metropolitan areas. The study found that immigration does not increase assaults and that serious crimes such as burglaries, larceny, robberies and murder are in fact lower in places where immigration levels are high.

Adelman feels strongly that facts are critical in the current political environment. The empirical evidence in not only this study, but other related research as well, shows little to no support for the view that more immigrants lead to increased crime.

According to Adelman, research previously done was based on arrest and offense data. That research showed that overall, native-born Americans are more likely to commit crimes than foreign-born individuals are.

3. This just isn't belivable

Are you suggesting immigrants do not commit crimes at all. And somehow they reduce crime.

I live in a town of about 50k as the population goes up crime increases. I don't think it matters if it's native born or it's immigrants.

You really believe if the population of NYC doubled, but all the new comers were immigrants, crime would go down?

5. well it isnt my study but immigrants try to stay out of the spotlight

 

and that the news doesnt report every crime and the kind of crime they do report is crime that involves people of color.
mass murderers all almost entirely white males.


from the article ...research previously done was based on arrest and offense data. That research showed that overall, native-born Americans are more likely to commit crimes than foreign-born individuals are.

6. Ok, Americans are 'more likely'. So?

 

The 'less likely' still commit crimes, right?

Black people, though only 13% of the population, commit 50% of the murders in America. If you're going to introduce 'color', I will also.

8. Thanks Kon

He is suggesting their per capita crime rate is less. Maybe so. Not quite what the headline says.

So what it should say is immigrants increase crime at a lower rate.

Thanks again.

20. Immigration is correlated with lower crime

immigration


Violent crime victimization rate


If there's a correlation, it is that people immigrate when violence is low.

13. He means rate

as in per capita. Not sure I believe that either. Shouldn't have said crime.

Headline quite misleading.

14. The term "illegal immigrant" is politically incorrect just like "radical Islamic terrorism." ...

All too often in our nation political correctness stifles reasonable discussions and makes solutions to our problems far more difficult.

16. Each and every crime committed by an illegal would not have happened if they were not here.

Just hard cold facts that no amount of BS can get around.....

Now how many crimes were there committed by illegals during this period of time? Every one of them was avoidable and should never have happened.

This is one of those articles where the numbers are made to lie and liars write about the numbers.
