New PEW Report Provides SHOCKING Link between Racial Profiling Against Latinos and Latino Federal Prison Sentences!

According to a new study by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center, Latinos accounted for 40% of all people sentenced to federal crimes in 2007, even though they made up only 13% of the U.S. adult population. This is clearly a result of all of the Racial Profiling brought about by the 287(g) policies and the restrictionist policies promoted by the ANTI Immigration Reform forces.
The study, which relied on data from U.S. Sentencing Commission statistics, analyzed the ethnic makeup and citizenship status of offenders sentenced in federal courts in the U.S. from 1991 to 2007.
In 2007, nearly half of all Latino offenders were sentenced for an immigration offense. The heightened focus on immigration enforcement changed the citizenship profile of federal offenders. Among sentenced immigration offenders, most were convicted of the civil violation of unlawfully entering or remaining in the U.S. Fully 75% of Latino offenders sentenced for immigration in 2007 were convicted of merely entering the U.S. unlawfully or residing in the country without authorization.
Some groups of offenders were more likely than others to receive a sentence. Fully 96% of immigration offenders received a prison sentence in 2007, compared with 95% of drug offenders, 94% of firearms offenders and 94% of violent offenders. In 2007, 96% of Latino offenders, and 98% of non-U.S. citizen Latino offenders, were sentenced to prison. In contrast, 89% of black offenders and 82% of white offenders received a prison sentence. Hispanics are much more likely than whites or blacks to be sentenced for an immigration or drug offense (due to Racial Profiling)—two of the crimes most likely to be punished with a prison sentence. In 2007, 85% of Hispanics were sentenced for either a drug or immigration offense. This was 40 percentage points greater than any other racial or ethnic group: 46% of black offenders and 37% of white offenders were sentenced for drug or immigration offenses.
As I previously reported, a new report from the Migration Policy Institute details the FAILURE of the National Fugitive Operations Program (NFOP), led by ICE, to remove fugitive aliens. Even though the NFOP budget has soared from $9M to $218M since 2003, the results have been a reduction of convictions of criminal aliens from 39% to a mere 9%. As I have been reporting for some time, ICE has taken the EASY WAY OUT. They boosted the rate of ICE Raids to meet their NFOP targets. The findings of the MPI report details that ICE has resorted to targetting non-criminals, including seamstresses, meat-packers and technical workers, just to meet their arrest quotas.
What is most alarming is the impact of Racial Profiling on the Latino Community.
MESSAGE TO JANET NAPOLITANO -- Stop the Racial Profiling! Stop the 287(g) programs. Consider the Costs of these unneccessary, lengthy incarcerations. Consider the FAILURE of the NFOP programs. Consider the abuses in the privately owned (RNC Crony Owned), vermin infested, non-humanitarian Detention Centers. Now is the time for Comprehnsive Immigration Reform!

So let me get this straight. If statistically there are more white serial killers than any other racial group, law enforcement shouldn't question white people because it is "racial profiling" even if it means we are catching them and imprisoning them for that crime and would raise the white crime rate? Surely you jest!

Dee said...

Sonny,
Lets say you live in Witchita, KS. You are White. The police believe all serial killers are White. After all, BTK was from Witchita and they believe most serial killers fit that profile. So now, routinely, Sheriff A. and his masked goons routinely pull over all White Males. You fit the BTK profile. And Sheriff A. keeps doing this every week. Every week, just to get publicity. He stops all of you middle aged white guys. He gets you for lapsed tags. He gets you for DUIs. He gets you for missed child support. Now all DUIs, Child Support and Lapsed Tags are Federal Offenses. And no matter what you say, you are put in prison. Suddenly the rate of all white males in Federal Prison increases.

That is racial profiling and that is what is happening in the SW States.

As the report says, fully 75% of Latino offenders sentenced for immigration in 2007 were convicted of merely entering the U.S. unlawfully or residing in the country without authorization...A CIVIL VIOLATION!! AND MANDATORY PRISON TIME!!

Dee said...

That would be like saying your lapsed Insurance Papers, a civil violation, is a Federal Crime requiring MANDATORY PRISON TIME.

Dee said...

If nothing else, consider the multi millions/billions of dollars this is costing the US to incarcerate civil violators.

At a minimum, WHY ARE THEY BEING KEPT IN PRISON FOR ANY AMOUNT OF TIME at EXHORBITANT COSTS!!

Think of the COSTS!!!

Dee said...

All just to meet a QUOTA!!

sonny said...

You missed the obvious good thing about it. The DUI, lapsed tags and missed child support white offenders go to jail. It is taking criminals off the streets.

Dee said...

Sonny,
You totally, totally, miss the point.

First, most white males are not racially profiled by police as occurred in Guadalupe for Latinos.

Second, Most first offenders do not go to federal prison with mandatory sentences.

sonny said...

There are always costs involved in incarcerating law breakers. What is the alternative? Let them wander the streets? I sure wouldn't want serial killers doing that no matter what their race is. You didn't answer my question. If most serial killers are white (hypothetically) is it not necessary to question white people to seek out serial killers? It doesn't even have to be that serious of a crime, just any laws where statistics show that white people are the biggest offenders.

sonny said...

I didn't miss any point. If a white person fits the description of a criminal that the police are looking for, they would be questioning whites. You know that and there is no denying that.

It doesn't matter whether it is a crime that warrants prison or just jail time. There are small time criminals and big time criminals. Law enforcement is obligated to go after all of them. Just as ICE and those under 287g are authorized to go after immigration law breakers. If one fits the majority description of them, one should expect to be questioned. Whats the big deal about being questioned? How can law enforcement do their jobs if they are called racial profilers when they are only questioning those who fit a description? You are handcuffing our law enforcement otherwise from doing their jobs effectively. Do you want law breakers roaming our streets?

Dee said...

Sonny,
Again, you TOTALLY miss the point.
In response to your question, most serial killers ARE white males, but you do not see racial profiling of all white males, even in Wichita, where BTK killed so many people over a 20 year span.

Look at what happened in Guadalupe. Every Latino was stopped.

Beyond that, civil violations do not deserve a mandatory sentence in Federal Prison. That is wrong in so many ways.

From your perspective, you should at least consider the multi million dollar costs of incarcerating so many for so long for a civil violation.

Then THINK WHY this is happening. The bottom line is, the reason this is happening is not about immigration at all. This is about PROFIT for the owners/operators of the Private Prisons. These private prisons are owned by RNC Cronies, like GEO Group. THINK !!!

READ THE ARTICLE:

In 2007, nearly half of all Latino offenders were sentenced for an immigration offense.

Fully 75% of Latino offenders sentenced for immigration in 2007 were convicted of merely entering the U.S. unlawfully or residing in the country without authorization.

And ALL of them were incarcerated in a Federal Prison with a Mandatory Sentence for these 1st time civil offenses.

READ THE BLOG! READ THE Study!!

Isn't that a contradiction?
Otherwise, what is the point of "mandatory sentences"...?

And yet serial killers make up 1 in 10,000,000 people at best....(that would be about 300 nationwide or so)
The number of serial killers is awfully low, seriously.

But, 12-20,000,000 'unauthorized immigrants' on the hand......

Explain to me how a judge can sentence a person to prison for a civil violation unless it is legal to do so. Do you know how the law reads or works or is this just another "humanitarian" judgment on your part based on your own rules rather than the rule of law? How convenient!

And your point Arizonian?

1 in 10 million

12 million in a population of over 300 million people. Percentage wise, it is about the same

Ultima,
ALL Latino Americans are NOT illegal aliens.

Ultima,
No CIVIL Violation should be a Federal Crime with a Mandatory Sentence.
This only happened due to Racial Prejudice.
Period!

I guess that is a matter of opinion especially when it come to illegal aliens. The fact is these are federal crimes subject mandatory sentencing based on the rule of law not racial prejudice.

I agree with you. Let's not spend a dime more than necessary on them. Let 'em live in Joe Arpaio's tent city and work on the border infrastructure for six months eating baloney sandwiches then we can fingerprint, photo, and DNA them and send them on their way with the admonition that if they return they will do hard time for at least two years. We could make this work with your and the Neo-Copperheads' help. Then they wouldn't have to serve time with hardened criminals.

Not according to my arithmetic. What would you rather have a 4% raise or a 1% raise. 1/10= 1%, 12/300 =4%.

ultima said...

And if it's 20 million, 6.67%.

ultima said...

He who commits crimes or civil offenses is bound to be the ones most represented in all our prisons and detention centers. Easy solution: don't do it or don't get caught.

Dear Dee and friends :

Let's laugh a lot - That is good for digestion.

I have seen many Comical Movies. Comedies in which a perfect Anglo Saxon is profiled by the Migra as a Latino, because of beeing with Latinos at the moment of the raid.

The situation is very comical and humilliating for the White Person, even a Blonde and Blue eyed Nordic.

As the Husband of Jane Fonda in a Big Comedy, whose name I can not remember. Jane and Husband become thieves after lots of unemployment.

And San Francisco Detective Adrian Monk gets into an Illegal Aliens Farm as an undercover agent to solve a murder case.

And he looks perfectly Illegal Alien with his attire and sombrero.

All the illegals are startled that Adrian Monk can not speak Spanish Well. And that he does not know how to work with hens and how eggs are gathered.

Adrian is a fool among the Illegals, because he does not know anything about farm activities.

I am gathering more foolishness, comedies, and movies to laugh about Racial Profiling and Misunderstandings.

Perhaps Comedian Jim Carrey has been profiled Racially ???

Perhaps not, he is too nordic !

It is always better to laugh than to hate.

Ultima,
You are revealing yourself with your comments.

Racial profiling is abundant and that is why there are so many arrestrs.

Consider this. Under the microscope, if Arpaio's hooded cops stopped every car with White Northern Europeans in your neighborhood, how many would be arrested for Civil Violations?

And, if ALL Civil Violaters were incarcerated with MANDATORY sentences in Federal Prisons, how many of your brothers and sisters be in the Pen? Let's say your wife and son forget their insurance. Let these Civil Violaters live in Joe Arpaio's tent city and work on the border infrastructure for six months eating baloney sandwiches then we can fingerprint, photo, and DNA them and send them on their way with the admonition that if they return they will do hard time for at least two years.

How would your rule of law work for you then?

None are so blind as those who REFUSE to see the truth! It will not see the truth until you feel the pain.

Dee said...

Ultima,
How many white collar criminals go to Federal Prison for their crimes? People are saying Madoff, who STOLE $40 BILLION Dollars will get off scot free due to the work of his expensive lawyers.
Madoff and others like him have destroyed millions of peoples lives with their scams/ponzi schemes. Retirees are being tossed to the streets because of them.

And YOU and people like you are OK with this. You are not ranting and raving against him as you do against the workers who come here to work and only have a civil violation. You throw them in Federal Prison for working. And meanwhile Madoff walks around scot free and destroying so many lives. That is your standard.

What kind of a Christian are you and those on your side? Very Sad!!

Did you flunk math?

1 in 10M would be: 30 people nationwide or roughly 0.00000001%
(not sure where the 300 came from previously)

12M of 300M is roughly 4%.

or about 1 in 25 people in the US.
