THINGS YOU CAN BLAME ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FOR. According to Tom Tancredo, the real reason for the increase in violent crime in Newark, NJ, is -- just guess -- illegal immigration. He's encouraging families of victims to file a lawsuit against the city for allowing undocumented residents to live there. Nevermind that immigrants have lower crime rates than native born residents; Tancredo is properly demagogic enough to ignore that fact. Previously Tancredo blamed illegal immigrants for sex crimes against children since the seemingly unrelated date of 9/11. So what's illegal immigration's next victim going to be? Probably just happiness.
