Many Americans have been lead to believe that “illegal aliens” are dangerous and a threat to society; however the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI data indicates that “between 1990 and 2013 the undocumented immigrants population tripled while the violent crime rate declined 48 percent—which included falling rates of aggravated assault, robbery, rape, and murder. Likewise, the property crime rate fell 41 percent, including declining rates of motor vehicle theft, larceny/robbery, and burglary” (Ewing, Martinez, Rumbaut). Despite the overwhelming negative press that’s heard on the news and from President Donald Trump the facts show that undocumented people are not dangerous criminals, but actually decreased the amount of crime. The United States spends more
Contrary to the common belief, crime has been on the decline for the past three decades. Yet, news and media have been covering crime more than ever, resulting in the public belief that crime is at an all time high. The sharp drop in crime since the early 1990s has left experts curious to discover the reasons for the decrease in crime. As I compare the article Understanding Why Crime Fell in the 1990s: Four Factors that Explain the Decline and Six that Do Not by Steven D. Levitt and the article Evaluating Contemporary Crime Drop(s) in America, New York City, and Many Other Places by Eric P. Baumer and Kevin T. Wolff, I will briefly describe the articles, compare their agreements and disagreements, as well as discuss my personal preferences.
This is not true because of the 11 million unlawful immigrants in the United States, about one million have committed some sort of criminal offense. In fact, legal and illegal immigrants are much less likely to end up in jail than U.S. citizens, according to a study by the Cato Institute. Most illegal immigrants have no criminal record; there is no need for them to be deported if they have been in the U.S for many years and still haven’t done anything wrong. Despite most immigrants having a clean record, more immigrants are being deported than ever before. Since Trump came into office, the number of undocumented immigrant arrests has risen by roughly one-third, according to Immigrations and Customs Enforcement statistics.
In the 1990’s the United States experienced a great drop in crime rates all across America (in cities, suburbs, exurbs, and rural areas). The decline in crime was unexpected, large, and it was widespread geographically and demographically. Many researchers attempted to explain why crime declined in the 1990’s, but it was proven to be a difficult task. According to Zimring (and most other researchers) there are three commonly cited explanations for the crime drop. These are; the criminal justice efficacy, demographics, and economic factors.
9) The sales of the company have increased relatively in 2013 but it is cancelled out by their exorbitant net loss. 10) Currently, share price also has fallen down from 17$ to only 0.56 cents leading to the company to lose more than 80% of its share value. 11) In the first quarter of 2014, net sales came down to 137.1 million USD and Gross Profit came down to 72 million USD compared to the first quarter last year. This impact was due to heavy competition. 12) About the Apparel industry in general, it has been highly volatile and inconsistent of late.
The population of South Korea showed robust growth since the republic's establishment in 1948, and then dramatically slowed down with the effects of its economic growth. In the first official census, taken in 1949, the total population of South Korea was calculated at 20,188,641 people. The 1985 census total was 40,466,577. Population growth was slow, averaging about 1.1% annually during the period from 1949 to 1955, when the population registered at 21.5 million. Growth accelerated between 1955 and 1966 to 29.2 million or an annual average of 2.8%, but declined significantly during the period 1966 to 1985 to an annual average of 1.7%.
In 2002, Chicago had less murders yet a fundamentally higher murder rate than New York or Los Angeles. Chicago encountered a noteworthy ascent in brutal crime beginning in the late 1960sa decrease in general crime in the 2000s, and then a bounce back
However, the US faced considerably less decline in demand rather than Japan. After acceleration of financial crisis, the yen appreciated rapidly. Thus, this appreciation was one of the reasons lowered net exports, Japanese economy shrank %12.4 in the October-December period in annualized terms, and then experienced %15 drop in the following three months,far worse than
In the urban population, IMRs in the five lowest infant mortality states have decreased faster than in five highest infant mortality states, resultantly inter-state inequality in urban infant mortality has increased. However in states with highest infant mortality, between 1981-83, has resulted in a decrease in the inter-state inequality. The median decrease in total infant mortality rate in states having lowest and the highest infant mortality in 1981-83 was 39.92 per cent and 54.16 per cent respectively. Similarly, the median decrease in rural infant mortality rate in states with lowest rural infant mortality and in states with highest infant mortality in 1981-83 was 39.96 and 54.73 per cent respectively; the corresponding figures for the urban infant mortality rate being 46.73 and 41.56 per cent respectively (Chaurasia, 2005). Kerala in India has the lowest infant mortality rates and recorded IMR of 7 against the national average of 34 in 2013(Indian Academy of
In the year 2012, the poverty rate in Ghana was less than half the African average of 43 percent, while in 1991, it had been only 10 percent lower than the African rate (Molini and Paci, 2015). The extreme poverty rate declined even more quickly, dropping from 37.6 percent in 1991 to 9.6 percent in 2012. However, despite the tremendous growth in the economy, inequality has been increasing and poverty remains prevalent in many areas (Cooke, Hague and McKay
