64% Of Federal Arrests Were Of Non-Citizens In 2018, DOJ Finds
[DAILYCALLER] Federal arrests of non-citizens has increased exponentially over the past two decades, and account for the majority of all federal arrests, data released by the Justice Department revealed.

Non-citizens made up 64% of all federal arrests in 2018 despite making up 7% of the U.S. population, according to Justice Department data released Thursday and reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation. Between 1998 and 2018, federal arrests of non-citizens grew by 234%, while federal arrests of U.S. citizens climbed 10%.

While the numbers provide credence to President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
’s argument that illegal immigration results in increased crime, immigration experts also pointed out that migrant apprehensions make up a significant portion of current federal arrests.

"Experience has taught the immigration agencies and DOJ that this works to reduce recidivism ‐ in other words, when illegal crossers face some more severe consequence than just being sent back home, they don’t keep doing it," Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies told the Washington Examiner.

Young Turks Contributor Hasan Piker Makes Fun Of Rep. Crenshaw’s Missing Eye In Vulgar Rant; Believes U.S. Deserved 9/11
[DAILYCALLER] The nephew of Cenk Uygur, founder of the progressive commentary program The Young Turks, said the U.S. deserved 9/11 and praised the "brave f*cking soldier" who injured Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw.

Crenshaw appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast, published Tuesday, and discussed the representative’s views on U.S. foreign policy in the middle east. Young Turks employee Hasan Piker reacted angrily while watching an internet live stream of the episode.

"This guy has the understanding of foreign policy of, like, a 12-year-old. What the f-ck. What the f-ck is wrong with this dude?" Piker said while reacting to Crenshaw’s appearance with Rogan. "Didn’t he go to war and like literally lose his eye because some mujahideen ‐ a brave f-cking soldier ‐ f-cked his eye hole with their d-ck?"

#1  Saturday Night Live also mocked Crenshaw's eye. When they set standards, they never mean themselves.

Here's the actual podcast if you'd like to watch it.

#2  Someone deserves a horsewhipping.

#3  Uygurrrrr was born in Turkistan, so these people are like Somali Omar. They are here because they escaped the strife but are too stupid to rise above it, thus should be sent back via Afghanistan to get the ultimate return on their hate America investment.

#4  P.S. Dan is a nice guy but there are a whole bunch of Seals he had better keep a look out for. And that may be why late today he is suddenly saying what he said was taken out of context.

#5  Cenk Uygur's entire clan belongs in a Chinese human experimentation re-education camp.

Only in America can they piss on the country and live in it at the same time.

#6  IIRR the young turks were genocidal fascists terrorists.

#7  This is exactly why there are so few old Turks.

#8  I can't understand why anyone pays Hasan Piker for his tasteless, rude, crude and classless comments. Do something useful. I doubt that Rep. Crenshaw lost any sleep over this POS.

#11  Dron66046, not just America. Folks are pissing on countries throughout the west and the elites just kow tow.
Posted by: ruprecht || 08/23/2019 14:59 Comments || Top||

#12  It's unacceptable. Common folks should fight to censor them. There should be an extralegal conservative arm, ordered and protected by the Republicans. The left has to only pick what flavor it wants - antifa, BLM, muslims... the Right has nothing. Just uncoordinated, frustrated people who want to see something done but have to trust and wait by the system, until they lose patience and get themselves in trouble.

The left forcibly censors activists, christians, academics, journalists. Why are they not being accosted in the car park, beaten into a coma ? How dare he say that 9/11 was deserved ?

If even a high minister in India would say 26/11 was deserved, there won't be enough cops to save him from being lynched. 3000 people died. That used to mean something. I'm not American and my blood boils thinking it. People shall have to get together to make these fuckers afraid of opening their mouths. Maybe somebody is already out there, trying, failing. God be with them.
