Where’s the proof for Perry’s claims of border crime?
mysanantonio.com / Wed, 6 Aug 2014 01:48:00 UT
If the border is truly the warzone that Gov. Rick Perry suggests, if it's truly under siege by an opportunistic wave of undocumented criminals, if it is hard hit by record infiltrations of people from terrorist countries, if it is indeed in desperate need of another state trooper "surge," and a Texas National Guard deployment of 1,000 that will cost Texas taxpayers millions of dollars per week -- surely, then, there must be statistics to prove it. Perry has offered no statistical proof of his theory that crime has increased in historically safe border cities as law enforcement contends with the wave of child immigrants flowing in from Central America. Asked for proof, Perry's office sent me to the Texas Department of Public Safety – an agency that is far from a beacon of transparency. When two of my colleagues recently requested data on how DPS "surge" efforts along the border have affected drug seizures and other crime, DPS refused to disclose the information and diverted the request to the Texas Attorney General. [...] experts interviewed by Kriel and Collette say the decline is more likely the result of seasonal migration patterns and publicity over the humanitarian crisis. [...] the Texas governor, with two dark-rimmed eyes on the White House, is making the border photo ops and TV news circuits with the same cowboy swagger – albeit without the boots. In June, Perry tried to attribute the record number of non-Mexicans crossing the border to people "coming from states like Syria that have substantial connections back to terrorist regimes and terrorist operations." The first paragraph mentions how police officers were wounded recently in an hours-long standoff with a gang member wanted for murder. "The story is conflating domestic issues with border issues to make it look like it's worse than it is," said Larry Karson, a former U.S. customs agent who is now an assistant professor of criminal justice at the University of Houston Downtown.
