Crime, Immigrants, Fox News…and the Truth

"According to the study, which analyzed records from October 2008 — before Obama was in office — to July 2011, 46,734 undocumented immigrants were released within that three-year span.  Of those, 7,283 or 15.9 percent, recommitted crimes within three years of their initial arrest and release.  To put it in context, Americans' recidivism rate is about 40 percent.  But Fox News anchor Rick Folbaum described those findings as "revealing that illegal immigrants are more likely to return to jail after being arrested than citizens or even legal residents" — which is the exact opposite of what the report concluded." – Emily Arrowood, Aug. 1, 2012.
