In 2007 when illegal immigration hit its peak, homicides in Maricopa County were 100% higher than they are today, that's 150 more homicides in one year. The car theft situation was much worse. Car thefts in Maricopa County were 16,000 higher than they are today.

A culture of crime doesn't reignite right away, it takes time to build. This current tsunami of illegal immigration will have its crime effects on a delayed date. The high crime demographic, 20 to 30 years old is overrepresented in illegal immigration by more than double.
