America to Blame for Illegal Aliens Turning to Crime because they're picking up those bad American habits of cheating, drinking and drugs!
Americans are to blame for some illegal immigrants becoming serial crooks because "they're picking up those bad habits of cheating, of drinking and drugs," according to an official of a prominent Latino advocacy organization.
Jesse Diaz of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) made the claim on Monday during an interview on Dallas talk radio station KRLD, and then repeated them on Tuesday to WFAA-TV.
Diaz was discussing a federal study of 100 illegal immigrants with arrest records. The study found they had each been arrested and released six times, on average.
When questioned about how living in America is responsible for them becoming serial lawbreakers, Diaz stood by his remarks, arguing that conservative Catholic values learned in Mexico start to break down once in the U.S.
