Journal Crétien reminds us that more Americans are killed by illegal aliens in the United States than in the Iraq War:
Illegal aliens are killing more Americans than the Iraq war, says a new report from Family Security Matters that estimates some 2,158 murders are committed every year by illegal aliens in the U.S. The group says that number is more than 15 percent of all the murders reported by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the U.S. and about three times the representation of illegal aliens in the general population.This makes sense:
- Iraq's 26 million residents are plagued by 200,000 insurgents of which half or less are active. That's an 800-to-1 citizen/terrorist ratio.
- Los Angeles' 4.3 million residents are plagued by 40,000 active gang members, of which more are active. That's a 100-to-1 citizen/terrorist ratio.
