STUDY: 1 MILLION SEX CRIMES BY ILLEGALS (Researcher estimates more than 100 offenders crossing border daily)

Based on a one-year in-depth study, a researcher estimates there are about 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States who have had an average of four victims each.  From January 1999 through April 2006, 1,500 cases were analyzed that included serial rapes, serial murders, sexual homicides and child molestation committed by illegal immigrants.  While the offenders were located in 36 states, most were in states with the highest numbers of illegal immigrants.  California had the most offenders, followed by Texas, Arizona, New Jersey, New York and Florida.  The 1,500 cases reviewed were broken down this way:

- 525, or 35%, were child molestations

- 358, or 24%, were rapes

- 617, or 41%, were sexual homicides and serial murders

Of the child molestations, 47% of the victims were Hispanic, 36% Caucasian, 8% Asian, 6% African American and 3% other nationalities.  In 82% of the cases the victims were known to their attackers.
