Illegal Alien Crime Wave in Texas: 611,234 Crimes, 2,993 Murders

From PJ Media (emphasis theirs):

The murder of Kathryn Steinle on the Embarcadero in San Francisco by an illegal alien is the most familiar example of a crime committed by an alien.  But an unreleased internal report by the Texas Department of Public Safety reveals that aliens have been involved in thousands of crimes in Texas alone, including nearly 3,000 homicides. PJ Media obtained an never-before-released copy of a Texas DPS report on human smuggling containing the numbers of crimes committed by aliens in Texas.

According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults. The report describes an alien crime wave of staggering proportions exacerbated by federal officials unwilling to enforce immigration laws. The Texas DPS report says well over 100,000 individual criminal aliens have been booked into Texas jails:

From October 2008 to April 2014, Texas identified a total 177,588 unique criminal alien defendants booked into Texas county jails. These individuals have been identified through the Secure Communities initiative, in which Texas has participated since October 2008.

There are almost certainly more criminal aliens who haven’t been identified as aliens.  The 177,588 criminal aliens identified by Texas through the Secure Communities initiative only can tag criminal aliens who had already been fingerprinted.  Arrests of illegal aliens who have not been fingerprinted prior to arrest are not included in these arrests numbers derived from the Secure Communities initiative. That means that the already stratospheric aggregate crime totals would be even higher if crimes by many illegal aliens who are not in the fingerprint database were included. The Secure Communities initiative is an information-sharing program between the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice.

Presumably, both departments would have data on the number of fingerprint searches conducted that revealed a criminal act involved an alien. Texas has been ground zero in illegal alien crossings into the United States.  The Texas DPS report shows that in the Rio Grande Valley, 154,453 illegal aliens were apprehended in 2013.

Other Texas sectors saw approximately 86,000 illegal aliens apprehended.  All other sectors combined on the southern border only saw approximately 170,000 illegal alien apprehensions in the same time period.  The Obama administration releases a sizable portion of the illegal aliens captured. The criminal aliens identified by the Texas Department of Public Safety have been responsible for the most heinous types of crimes — and in astonishing numbers.


Imagine what the numbers would look like had they all been fingerprinted and correctly counted!! It is extremely irksome to know this is going on and that Texas, along with the other border states, is prohibited by the feds in putting a stop to this. It does no good to catch them when O is going to turn around and let them go. Not only that, he’s also doing all he can to feed & house them, turn them into democrat voters and to allow them in our military.

Texas has spent millions of dollars and put extra men on the border, but it does no good when we have to defer to the feds.

    I don’t get why Gov. Perry and the whole Texas legislature didn’t tell batears to pound sand and shut the border down. Your electeds’ first duty is to Texas.

    We know why of course… can’t alienate the Hispanics prior to a presidential bid or give the media something to beat you with.

    Had Perry taken up the illegal issue much like Trump did Perry would be #1 in the polls right now.

    • Kathy says:

      Perry’s in-state tuition deal proved he’s soft on them. He did the right thing by putting more guys on the border, but his reasons for it was because it was an in-your-face move to O and because it was a show for his potential supporters for his presidential bid.

      Without federal authority those guys were just more watch dogs reporting their sightings to the BP.

  2. Buck says:

    You’re right but Perry has proven he is just another, “Me, too!” GOPe Rino. A solution to the crimes committed by illegals would be to enhance all illegal alien committed crimes to capital offenses.
    Speedy trial, fast track appeals process and speedy carrying out of sentence. In, say, within a year of the offense.

    • Kathy says:

      Your solutions would work until all those civil rights leaders started screeching about the unfairness of it. Another solution would be to stop all the grant money that goes to the churches who provide sanctuary for so many illegals. Instead put that money toward capture and punishment, along with returning them to their country of origin.

      • Uriel says:

        Kathy you touched on a very important issue. Illegals or refugees are being HELPED by churches to get established in the U.S. Those arms of O moving them in need church assistance. I get some are reasonable but churches are also enabling Muslim and illegal radicals to change our country. Not a realistic attitude.

        Perry is and will always be a politician first. That will not be enough to recover from O’s disastrous time. It will take a much stronger person to not cave and bring all sides back together as sweeping erasers take out O’s edicts.

        • Kathy says:

          In our archives, there’s probably some posts from last summer when the flood of illegals surged so fast. We pointed out the enormous grants given to Baptists and Catholics primarily so they could help the illegals and many of those grants came from DHS and HHS. Naturally, both departments were at O’s beck and call.

          The massive influx of illegals and the crime that follows is all part of the chaos created to destroy this country. People like Kathryn Steinle and other victims are just collateral damage to him.

    As someone who has been (and still is to a degree) a Perry supporter, I’m still pissed at him for not doing more along the border. He made the public stand to spit into Obama’s face and to bolster his credentials as a presidential candidate, but outside of that, he didn’t do much to keep illegals out of Texas. Yes, it was Obama’s job, but the expense of those millions of illegals coming into Texas was borne by Texas taxpayers, not others. I also agree on the instate tuition snafu, he never should have done that.
