Essay of the Week: 2/21/10-2/27/10

This week’s essay of the week is His-Panic by Ron Unz. It should be noted that Mr. Unz’s arguments are all valid, but they do not change the fact that increase in Hispanic immigration causes crime to be greater in American than it would otherwise would be. Thus, his conclusion does not flow from his argument.

In other words, the fact that young Hispanic men commit crimes at the same rate as young white men does not mean that fears of a Hispanic fulled crime wave are unfounded. If you take a typical American town and inject a large number of young Hispanic men, the crime rate will go up sharply even if the young Hispanic men are no worse than the “white” Americans of the same age.
