Law enforcers struggle with illegal-immigrant crime...

Criminal aliens, as the federal government classifies them, constitute more than a fourth of the inmates in federal prisons. Those still at large often fall between the cracks of an overburdened and uneven enforcement system, escaping detection and deportation.-- McClatchy Newspapers
First off, you will see they are trying to imply to you that we are talking about Illegal Aliens. The graph actually depicts Non-Citizens, a much larger percentage of the U.S. population. Secondly, I will bet you thought they meant the entire prison population. Nope, it's just the Federal prison system. Five percent or so of the whole prison population.
Finally, it's clear they are trying to show a rise in murderin' brown savages. Well, if you do the math you see:
Hey! It's holding steady at 36% of non-citzens (green card holders, etc.) in the Federal prison system. So, no increase AT ALL. What is this report about? What's the news here?
McClatchy and reporter Dave Montgomery need to do a better job and stop peddling the tired old racist polemics that the Minutemen and other white power groups spout.
You can let them know what you think.
