Comment: So what is it mean when the media lies to us? Do they get a pass if they're just lying to themselves?? Question, aren't those 62,009 visa over-stayers in essence, breaking the law and thus committing a crime??? That would then mean that a total of 67,432 foreigners were taken into custody and/or arrested for committing a crime, not the 5,423 mentioned in this piece of excrement excuse for journalism. Tortured semantics aside, when it's looked at from this perspective somehow I don't think you can say that the majority of foreign law breakers are legal residents and that 90% figure is downright just plain dishonest if not an outright lie...
