NBC News reported the record numbers of illegal immigrants in the US can be partly attributed to conditions in Central and South America, with more nationalities appearing at the border recently.

While studies show undocumented immigrants statistically commit fewer crimes per capita than citizens, the sheer volume of illegal immigrants under Biden has increased to new highs.

NBC’s Savannah Sellers asked, “What does this tell us about some of the larger frustrations over Biden’s immigration policies?”

Julia Ainsley answered, “Well, it comes down to numbers. We know that studies have shown that undocumented immigrants, per person, commit fewer crimes than American citizens. … But now, we have so many more undocumented migrants in this country, the last two years have been record-setters, one topping the last, a lot of that has to do with the conditions in Central America, South America, like we said, Venezuela, the number of countries of people coming here has just been added to the list.”

She added, “But, because there are so many more undocumented migrants here, we may start to see more crimes.”

This was discussed in the context of criticism over Laken Riley’s death and larger frustrations with Biden’s immigration policies.

The correspondent noted that as the undocumented population continues growing substantially in size, it could lead to observing more criminal incidents due simply to there being more undocumented people in the country overall.
