"Hispanics and Crime"

I’ve been meaning to blog this for a while, but Ron Unz has a fantastic piece in The American Conservative looking at the allegation that Hispanic immigration is leading to higher crime in the United States. This turns out to be true insofar as Hispanic immigration is making the country younger on average than it otherwise would be (crime is overwhelmingly a pursuit of the under-40 crowd), but not otherwise.
