Don’t Let Sensational Events Muddy the Immigration Discussion

A recent CATO Institute report explains why the horrific murder in Iowa should not be used to demonize all immigrants and distract us from the real threats to community safety.  Immigrants are less than half as likely to commit murder as native-born Americans.  Scarce law enforcement resources should be devoted to solving and deterring the most serious crimes, regardless of who commits them.  Our police were not hired to serve as ICE agents, and diverting them from their primary duties undermines community trust, thus making their jobs even more difficult.
