Roughly one in five illegal immigrants arrested for a crime committed additional ones within three years of their release, according to a House Judiciary Committee report to be released Tuesday.

Recidivism rate for illegal immigrants nearly 20 percent, DHS records show, as Rep says lack of enforcement to blame | Fox News

I can’t tell if by “committed” Fox means rearrested or actually found guilty of additional charges, but either way that’s significantly lower than the 67.5% of parolees in 1994 who were rearrested within three years of their release, or the 46.9% of the same parolees who were reconvicted.

It’s almost like undocumented people are less likely to commit crimes than citizens and residents.

I could go find more recent data, probably, but I’m lazy and this was the first to pop up.

Nope, I think that’s pretty good actually.
