My comment on Michael Light's paper:
"In general technological progress - more and higher CCTV coverage and density, DNA profiling, etc. - has made it harder to commit crime and these technological advances just coincided with a large wave of immigration into the U.S."…
"which makes it, superficially, appear as if immigration had no negative effect on crime or even lowered crime. My belief is that without immigration and the improvements we have experienced due to technological breakthroughs the crime rate would be even lower than it is today."
