Untangled: Examining how much immigration and crime intersect

All Sides Presents Untangled: Immigration from WOSU Public Media and the NPR Network

There is no doubt that some migrants who have crossed the border without authorization have committed crimes.

This has been something Republicans have been hammering on recently, after two Venezuelan immigrants were charged with capital murder for killing a 12-year-old girl.

In fact, a study by Northwestern University examining a 150-year period found that immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than people born in the U.S.

We're examining how much immigration and crime intersect on this edition of Untangled.
