    ...give you the time of day sometime.

    Undocumented immigrants make up about 3.7% of the U.S. population. My personal guess (based on nothing whatsoever) is that they probably are less likely to commit violent crimes than the average citizen, if only because they want to keep a low profile so as not to be deported, but if you can provide reliable data that says otherwise, present it or STFU.

    As for "50% of homicides are urban related", seeing how well over 50% of the population lives in "urban areas" this is hardly a shocking statistic (if true).
