A new report from the Crime Prevention Research Center indicates that illegal aliens commit twice the number of crimes in Arizona than legal residents of the state, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Friday. Not only that, the findings also indicate that their crimes are more severe. 
 
Three percent of Arizona’s population is made up of illegal aliens between the ages of 15 and 35. However, they make up 8 percent of the prison population, according to The Washington Times.
 
The author of the research center’s report, John Lott, said:
 
“There appears to be a huge difference between the two groups. The type of person who goes through the process to legally immigrate in the United States appears to be very law-abiding versus even the U.S.-born population. The reverse is true for undocumented immigrants [illegal aliens] — they are committing crimes, and more serious crimes.”... 
 
For those special snowflake Dreamers [illegal alien youths], Lott said the crime rate among them is 250 percent higher than those native-born.
 
AG Sessions said on Friday: “They’re more likely to be convicted of sexual assault, robbery, and driving under the influence. They’re more than twice as likely to be convicted of murder. Tens of thousands of crimes have been committed in this country that would never have happened if our immigration laws were enforced and respected like they ought to be.”...
