Hispanics born in the United States are more likely to become criminals than their immigrant parents

Linda Chavez:

Of the U.S. population of 45.2 million men ages 18 to 39 (those most likely to be in the criminal population), 3 percent were incarcerated, or about 1.3 million at the time of the 2000 Census. But of these, blacks, whites and U.S.-born Hispanics had incarceration rates that dwarfed those of immigrants. Only .7 percent of Mexican-born males were in prison or jail, compared with 3.51 percent of all U.S.-born males, which includes 1.71 percent of non-Hispanic whites, 11.6 percent of blacks and 5.9 percent of Mexican Americans.

So basically the illegal Mexican immigrants of today are the parents of the criminals of tomorrow. Just one more reason to protect our border with Mexico.

Assimilation, Mexican-American-style

It's not simply illegals, it's the children (sons) of Latin American immigrants (or am I missing something?). The real issue is not legal/illegal, but rather the importation of large numbers of people from corrupt underachieving violent third world countries. if we import 5 million mexicans a year, the damage they will cause to our country has little to do with immigration status. this is why amnesty is a bad idea, it just takes "illegal" immigrants and makes them "legal" but the problems they cause are nearly identical.
