Importing Violence: Immigration, Crime, and Why We Need Assimilation

When he was arrested for burglary in early 2006, Kesler Dufrene, a Haitian native residing in Florida's Manatee County, already had a long history of sometimes violent criminality. His first arrest was at age 14 when he assaulted a teacher, and he has built up a long rap sheet since then. Often described as a drifter, Dufrene was caught burglarizing a home in July of 2006. Already on probation for theft, a judge gave him five years and ordered him deported after serving his sentence.

He never was. Dufrene emerged from prison in 2010 during a moratorium on deportations to Haiti enacted by the Obama administration. Due to his history, he was being "supervised" by immigration authorities, but that supervision was lax to say the least. Weeks after his release Dufrene committed a vicious, seemingly random triple homicide. One of the victims was a 15-year-old girl.

The local news ran a quote by the teen's mother lamenting that "immigration" killed her daughter. Few news articles pointed out that the grieving mother, 37-year-old Audrey Hansack, is a native of Nicaragua who moved back to her home country in disgust with our immigration system. It's hard to argue with her criticism. Dufrene spent his entire life in our country breaking the law and there is evidence that he did not act alone in his last crime, that perhaps his friends and family aided his violence.

What Hansack's criticism doesn't articulate is the root cause of criminality involving illegal immigrants. The postmodernist disdain for assimilation not only leads to ghettoized, impoverished immigrant populations cruelly barred from achievement; it encourages criminality by allowing barbarity to flourish in America under the guise of multiculturalism.

In 2006, Dr. Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, a renowned criminal profiler, wrote an essay titled "Importing Violence: The Dangers of Immigration from Violent Cultures" that identifies this phenomenon. Schurman-Kauflin concentrates on Latin American and Muslim immigrants who refuse to assimilate to Western values' treatment of women. Her exposition of certain Mexican cultural peculiarities is especially disturbing:

Over the past several years, the U.S. has seen a large influx of immigrants, both legal and illegal, from countries whose values are opposed to the rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Specifically, there are large numbers of immigrants coming from countries that are misogynistic. These societies accord women little to no rights, and the idea of violence committed by men against women and children is not unusual.

First, take the concept of "rapto." This comes from Mexico where in some areas,  it is socially acceptable for a man of any age to abduct a female of any age as long as long as  he intends to marry her. That is right. Men can kidnap and rape females.  This is acceptable in Oaxaca where the government continues to view rapto as a minor crime. One legislator even referred to this horrid violation as "romantic." Lest anyone believe such garbage, note that 24 year old Mexican immigrant Eliseo Nunez snatched a 12 year old girl and took her to Mexico to fulfill his erotic desires. Isn't that romantic?

Many such cases have surfaced in America, where Mexican immigrants who have avoided or been denied access to the forces of assimilation then commit crimes that would be considered acceptable in Mexico. Many Americans are shocked to learn that the statutory age in several Mexican states is 12. Little wonder that we find stories of adult Mexican nationals molesting children -- why wouldn't they in a society that refuses to demand they conform to our standards?
