The Campaign For DA


Random DPS Chart

Rick Perry was firing off a lot of numbers today as he announced that he was sending 1,000 National Guard troops to "secure the border." In doing so, he relied upon data by DPS of the crimes committed by illegal aliens.

Check out this chart from the official DPS website which shows crimes by "foreign nationals, regardless of immigration status." Anyone see a problem with this graphic? Green is for "alien" arrests who have prior arrests. Red indicates first time "alien" offenders. Blue is for the "non-alien" arrests.  But that's not the problem. See it? Pravda was more honest.
