Yeah. There’s also the infamous mass street assaults by fresh *legal* immigrants in Germany.

It's not World War Z out there, and it's not like they're gangs of rapists

Hey that's not fair, I thought we were only talking about the US here!
The closer you are to this, the more strongly you must feel. I’m not in El Paso, nor in the hinterlands of Alaska. If any of the above happened to a loved one of mine, I’d throw the statistics out the window. How could I not.
For now, though, I’d like to know the percentage of illegal immigrants who are committing these crimes. I still think most of them are keeping our restaurant industry and other parts of the economy running. (Nonetheless, if I could wave a magic wand, they’d be back home).
I’d also like to see stats on that % relative to the rest of us, we the naturalized and descendants of the naturalized. Maybe moda could make those up find them or already has them.
You never hear about the sharks that swim close to shore and don’t bother anyone.
