If the Mexican immigrants are so bad, why is El Paso one of the safest American cities?

That city is clearly on the border, and I'm absolutely sure many illegal immigrants live there, but it has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation. So what's the difference between those immigrants and the ones in Arizona?

    It is??

    I've always been told by my fellow Texans to not hang out too long in El Paso when driving through.

    San Diego would have been a better example. It has the same level of crime and likely almost the same amount of illegals, but double the population of El Paso.

    That is like saying that Russian roulette with 5 loaded chambers is safe because 1 in every 6 who play survives. Your logic is flawed. El Paso, if it is really as safe as you say it is, is an exception, not the rule. Go to LA, or Phoenix, or Houston, or Oakland and hang out with some of the illegal aliens in gangs like MS13 and tell me how "safe" those places are.

    Immigrant implies paper work and following the nations laws. Nobody is saying Mexican immigrants are "bad".

    As for illegal immigrants they are just like all other people and have good and bad among them but the difference is that we have plenty of our own criminals and do not need to import them from other countries thank you.

    I don't think people have a problem with Mexican immigrants. They have a problem with illegal immigrants. It is not just Mexican illegal immigrants either, there are alot of illegal immigrants from all over the world here.

    The Texas Rangers probably round up people regularly and take them back across the border.

    If you dig around in the garbage long enough, you can usually find something that is still usable.

    Arizonans make their own enemies, therefore create their own problems.
