(National Sentinel)Â Dispelling Myths: On his Thursday night program,Â Fox News host Tucker Carlson presented what he said were “never-before-seen” statistics indicating that illegal aliens commit far more crimes than previously known.
Carlson began the segment by recounting an argument that Democratic politicians often make in supporting unlimited immigration, legal or illegal, and recounted how liberals claim non-citizens commit less crime than U.S. citizens.
â€œThey are your superiors,â€ he said, mockingly.
Then Carlson began presenting a list of statistics he said he never been presented to the American public to support his position.
â€œAccording to statistics from the U.S. Sentencing Commission, non-citizens are actually far more likely to commit serious crimes than Americans are,â€ said Carlson.
For instance, he said,Â â€œNon-citizens account for 22 percent, more than a fifth of all federal murder convictions.â€
Also, they account for â€œ18Â percent of fraud convictions” and â€œ33Â percent of money laundering convictions,â€ added Carlson.
Illegal aliens are also responsible for “29 percent of drug trafficking convictions and 72Â percent of convictions for drug possession.â€
â€œMeanwhile, the non-citizen percentage of the American people? About 7 percent,” he added.
In summing up the newly released statistics, the Fox News host said this is a “massively disproportionate” amount of crime committed by illegal aliens.
â€œWhy have so many people been lying to us for so long? Thatâ€™s a question we plan to ask a whole bunch of people,â€ Carlson said.
