True

All immigrants have a lower criminal incarceration rate and they commit less crime than native-born U.S. citizens.according to the near-unanimous findings of the peer-reviewed evidence. Since 1911, large nationwide federal immigration commissions have asked whether immigrants are more crime-prone than native-born Americans and each of them answered no.even when the rest of their reports unjustifiably blamed immigrants for virtually every problem in the United States. From the 1911 Immigration Commission, also known as the Dillingham Commission, to the 1931 Wickersham Commission, and 1994’s Barbara Jordan Commission, each has reported that immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than native-born Americans.

True

Incarceration rates for foreign-born individuals are much lower than for native-born U.S. citizens: among men ages 18-39 (which is the category that covers the vast majority of those incarcerated in the U.S.), only 0.7% of immigrants are incarcerated, compared to 3.5% of native-born U.S. citizens, and crime rates have actually fallen significantly in areas where the number of immigrant residents has increased.
