Study: Baltimore Actually More Dangerous Than Central America

Rep. Elijah Cummings was beside himself last week when questioning Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan, insisting that anyone who regarded our migrant detention policies as humane – or even necessary – was a fool or a racist or a bad person, or some combination of the three.

But while Cummings has spent a lot of time worrying deeply over the Trump administration’s efforts to keep America safe from a Central American invasion, it turns out that his own hometown of Baltimore is actually worse off than many of those nations. Indeed, maybe it’s time we give refuge to the residents of Baltimore and let Central Americans find sanctuary somewhere else.

From Breitbart:

Research by Princeton Policy Advisors’ Steven Kopits reveals that Baltimore has long had a higher murder rate than the most crime-ridden nations of Central America, where thousands of migrants flee from every year.

Based on the current rate of murders in Baltimore, Kopits projects that Baltimore’s murder rate for 2019 will come in at about 56 murders per 100,000 people — making it more than twice as dangerous as the country of Guatemala.

To date, there have been nearly 200 murders in Baltimore since the beginning of the year.

Meanwhile, El Salvador had a murder rate of 50 murders per 100,000 people in 2018, lower than Baltimore’s despite the violent MS-13 gang holding its headquarters in the small Central American country.

Likewise, Honduras is projected to have a murder rate of 38 murders per 100,000 people this year, while Guatemala had a murder rate of about 22 murders per 100,000 people in 2018.

These sickening statistics prove a lot of things. One, they show exactly what President Trump was talking about when he went on a tirade against Cummings and his home district. Two, they prove that there is absolutely nothing racist about pointing out the sad facts about Charm City. Three – and perhaps most importantly – they show why it is essential that we spend our resources fixing AMERICA before we spend them on taking in refugees from around the world.

It is often said that if we were to let everyone into this country that wanted to come, the U.S. would soon begin to resemble the very places that these refugees were fleeing in the first place. But these statistics show that, in some parts of the U.S., that is already the case. Let’s focus our efforts on cleaning up our own house before we try saving the world.

  1. You can take the people out of the “Third World Countries” but it you can’t take the “Third World Mentality” out of the People ! They need time to Assimilate and become acclimated to the “New Found Freedoms” and Customs of America ! As Far as helping our own Citizens First , I am all for that and to have that happen, we need to Scour the neighborhoods to root out the infestations of the Drug pushers that lull the residents of these places into a world where there is no “Tomorrow” only instant Euphoria by shooting up Now We need to Give these people a Hand Up , not a Hand Out ! It won’t happen overnight ,but we all know that so How do we start? We have all heard the expression, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks , but the Youth are eager to Learn and they can teach us older folks tricks we never dreamed of ! That’s where we start and we must persevere because the Reward will be worth the effort.

    • None of this Utopian Dream stands a chance until We stop the INVASION. The Wall needs to be built and all coyotes need to be arrested and pay heavy ($) fines and serve minimum sentences at hard labor (10 Year – 50 Year depending on volume or repeated crimes) in order to stop te ‘business” of illegal immigration and SLAVERY.


  3. Yea, right. Gee, I wish Cummings would therefore lead his tribe down thru MEX to GUAT in a reverse migration. That would be nice.

  4. These democrats care not for constituents only power ad the votes that give it to them most immoral group on the planet ,

  5. E.Cummings needs to be held accountable if he stole funds that were not his but for the purposes assigned and given; I mean tax money, not to be absconded but used for those in need! The man does not need to be shipped to another countrym that’s to easy, he needs to EXPLAIN what happened to all the money in his charge! GIVE an account…sir!

  6. When I was in Thailand in 1971 ( R&R from Nam ) we were informed that drug position would get you life in a Thai Prison, A better deal than a Thai National who would get summary execution by the cop that caught them. not sure if it was true or not but would take care of repeat offenders for drug dealing or use. taking the same people to the ER for ODing over and over night after night seems a waste of resources to me

  7. It appears Baltimore voters are happy with their elected officials or they would have replaced these crooks long ago, instead they re-elect them.
    These voters are not victims, they are accomplices !

  8. Cummings is a True DEMON RAT , destroying the People in his own Neighborhood and then trying to do the Same to all of America . The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is the World Superpower for Freedom and Justice , Hope and Prosperity . How do you Destroy all that , Vote for the DEMON RATS and the World will Suffer .

  9. I’ll say this: you can bet, that there are Muslims there in Baltimore, because wherever you find “FILTH, Killing and the like, Muslims will be found! ALL nations who have Muslims will be 3rd world Filthy nations! OF COURSE the President is right, I have been to Baltimore (and that was when it wasn’gt as bad) and I wouldn’t return etc IF you bought me a rent free house! The place is a dump!

  10. Why should the people who live there have to endure this sort of misery? Why isn’t their mayor working to actually fix the problems? Answer: He is too busy trying to get the spotlight hating on Trump and stealing federal funds that were given to his city to fix things.

  11. Don’t kid yourself, there are a lot of cities in the US that have areas more dangerous then any country. There are also some communities near cities in this country that are more dangerous because those communities are not assimilating with our customs, our ideals, our History, they are not even like “little Italy, or Chinatown, because they want to impose their customs on our society. We are a country of immigrants, no question, but we should demand respect, and adherence to our customs etc. Teddy Rosevelt said it up front to the point and best. “If you come to this country as an immigrant and want to become a citizen, then leave your flag at home and leave your customs there as well and assimilate into your new country”. And frankly what we have now is nothing more then political vote rigging and it will never work, because if something is not EARNED, it usually is not worth anything. People born in this country and those coming from other countries need to earn their citizenship. Freedom is not Free, the lack of abiding by our laws is illegal, and illegal is illegal no matter how you spell it. And those politicians who encourage or assist or make such statement for illegals to come, should be put in jail just like those entering this country illegally.
