Does anyone know what group commits the least amount of crimes?

I shockingly found out Illegals have the lowest crime rate.

Update:

Various criminolgists at various universities have made this conclusion with studies conducted nation wide not the states from anti immigration groups but from real data.

    There is a huge misconception, that illegals commit far greater crimes per capita.....While its true many illegals are imprisoned in far greater number, the discrepancy comes from strictly a financial point of view....For the most part, illegals are truly indigent and don't bail out of prison because they simply can't pay the bond/bail.....Consequently, they end up staying in jail because no one is their to pay the bond or have proper representation, they can't afford an attorney....Citizens, have family and financial resources to bail out and stay out of jails in far greater numbers.....They also have money to hire an attorney.....That being said, illegals don't commit any more crimes than legal residents or citizens, people, look at the bigger picture.....

    They may have the lowest crime rate (aside from being illegal in the first place) because they are here to make money, and dont want to be caught - human nature.

    I wouldnt put a lot of faith into different groups be less prone to be criminals than others. It is more about their situation than color, religion, etc.

    For example, the poor and uneducated are more likely to commit violent crimes because they either dont know better or feel they have to in order to survive. Unfortunately some minorities are more likely to be poor.

    Another example, white collar criminals are more likely to be white and middle-upper class. This is just because they are more likely to have the jobs that open this possibility.

    But, if I had to choose a group to answer your question - the Amish!

    Sorry but your info is WRONG! It must have come from a pro-illegal source that was telling you lies so that you would support the illegals. Besides, as soon as that first toe crossed the border, they were committing a crime!

    As for other crimes - for example, in LA there are numerous gangs committing crimes. MOST are Mexican gangs (illegals). Drugs are brought in by illegals. When you look at the percentages of drunk driving accidents that are fatal - MOST are illegals. This doesn't count all the identity thefts (felony) when they steal SS#s to get a job.

    Unlawful Entry is a CRIME. America love it or leave it. Unlawful Entry is a CRIME. Leave it Now. Zero tolerance for immigration-law violators! No amnesty, no "stealth-amnesty." No "change of status," marriage fraud, "exceptional leave to remain," no "Temporary Protected Status." If you break the law, depart or be deported. Illegal aliens kill more US citizens each year than the war in Iraq has killed in four years. Apologists for illegal immigration like to paint it as a victimless crime. But in fact, illegal immigration causes substantial harm to American citizens and legal immigrants, particularly those in the most vulnerable sectors of our population--the poor, minorities, and children. Additionally, job competition by waves of illegal immigrants willing to work at substandard wages and working conditions depresses the wages of American workers, hitting hardest at minority workers and those without high school degrees. Illegal immigration also contributes to the dramatic population growth overwhelming communities across America--crowding school classrooms, consuming already limited affordable housing, and straining precious natural resources like water, energy, and forestland. Taxpayers are being forced to pay for the free health care, education, and other welfare programs being given to illegal aliens; Those tax dollars could be given back to U.S. taxpayers or used to keep our borders secure; They may be here illegally, but they sure know how to "work the system" to collect "free" medical care, "free" education, "free" food, Section 8 housing vouchers and other housing assistance, and hundreds of other social services. It costs citizens additional hundreds of billions of tax dollars at every level: local, state, and federal. It gobbles up billions of our charitable contributions. And much of that money ends up siphoned out of our economy and into offshore accounts. Illegal aliens, over half of whom work "under the table" with neither job nor income reported (nor taxed), are not counted as employed or unemployed. But some of those day-labor and off-the-books "job-lets" would be "real" jobs - available to American citizen job-seekers - if employment regulations were enforced. Illegal aliens can get away with tax evasion, et al., which citizens cannot. In short, we have too many workforce entrants and too few jobs created. The ratio works out to roughly 7-10 workforce entrants per job created. If all illegal aliens depart or are deported, all legal immigration halted, and all temporary employment visas abolished, we still have a problem with more US-born workforce entrants than new jobs created. Illegal immigration damages our country and our citizens every day at every level. And not even the attacks of 2/26 and 9/11 have awakened many Americans to the vast dangers illegal immigration poses to our selves, our families, our communities, our society, our values, our principles, our civilization. Zero Tolerance for Immigration-Law Violators! We must remember the lessons of 2/26, 9/11, and the costs we bear every single day. God Bless the U S A !

    From the L.A. Times
