Although most people think that having no money makes you homeless, in fact, to be considered homeless you just have to not have a permanent home. Some statistics would be 55% unemployed, 33% alcohol abuse, 15% drug abuse, 3% physically disabled (O’Reilly-Fleming 38).

The results shows very clearly that people belonging to poor economic backgrounds often lose their faith in the structure of the social system, and then they tend to involve in criminal activities for either having a good life in future days (only in the sense of good economic status) or to express their anger on the system by being an outlaw. Studies also show that, in contrast to people living in white communities, people belonging to black communities are often found to be the offenders in cases of homicide or robberies. Thus, race factor also plays a vital role. It has often been suggested that people commit a crime either for family failure or for the failure of the society. Informal social control cannot effectively influence such factors.
McCandless possesses the title of an admirable hero, because he had the bravery to escape the oppressive, conformist society in which he resided. Many people may believe that Chris was dramatic in regards to abandoning his family; however, he was in reality treated very poorly: “On the days we did not pick up signals of slamming doors and elevated voices fast enough, Chris and I were damned to bear the brunt of our parents’ latest battle” (The Wild Truth). Both Carine and Chris beared the burden of having to listen to their parents’ abusive fights. More specifically, Billie McCandless even deemed Chris a scapegoat, blaming the abuse she endured on him: “ ‘I’m sorry, kids, but when I got pregnant with Chris, I got stuck with your father’”(The Wild Truth). Not only did Chris have to live through this abuse, but he had to live with this false guilt that he was the reason for this abuse.

(Impact of irregular migration). Irregular immigrants are particularly vulnerable to be attracted to petty crimes. Since they cannot find legal work that is highly paid, thus it seems that irregular immigrant communities may have no option than to resort to criminal activities to make ends meet. They try to cut themselves off from the society and usually work in insufficient economic conditions as they are unable to climb the social ladder in society. (ippr) In my opinion, asylum seekers have no other option than to do robberies and commit crime because they are highly impoverished and need something to stay alive on.
In the study of Bhowmik S. K. (2005), Filipino street vendors confronted the accompanying issues: they do not have specific places to operate, they do not have access to piped water, and they are considered illegal.
