This is a revision of a previous article, in the context of Politifact's Lie of the Year:

Those who come to power through the Big Lie lead their nations to disaster. Here, I unpack Trump's Big Lie and its roots in US public relations doctrine and Nazi propaganda lessons. The Big Lie, historically, leads to disaster, war, crackdown on dissent, and disaster. I also show how the media has ignored the Big Lie to focus on "fake news."

Breitbart and other "fake news" sources report that 37% of Federal sentences are, using the Nazi phrase, illegal aliens. Of course, less than 7% of prisoners are in Federal custody, and of the 27,000 unauthorized prisoners, about 3000 are guilty of crimes other than documentation violations. There are among them, 12 murderers.

Each one got headline news in a nation where 40 a day are murdered, 150,000 since 9/11 by US citizens.

According to FY 2014 USSC data, of 74,911 sentencing cases, citizens accounted for 43,479 (or 58.0 percent), illegal immigrants accounted for 27,505 (or 36.7 percent), legal immigrants made up 3,017 (or 4.0 percent), and the remainder (about 1 percent) were cases in which the offender was either extradited or had an unknown status.

Broken down by some of the primary offenses, illegal immigrants represented 16.8 percent of drug trafficking cases, 20.0 percent of kidnapping/hostage taking, 74.1 percent of drug possession, 12.3 percent of money laundering, and 12.0 percent of murder convictions."

Of 27,000 prisoners without documentation, note: " Citing the American Community Survey, the report also notes that the percentage of foreign-born men in the United States who are incarcerated (1.6%) is less than the percentage of U.S.-born men who are imprisoned (3.3%). And the reason they're behind bars is often tied to immigration offenses. Given that 70% of "foreign- born men" are here legally, that leaves a total of about .5% of undocumented immigrants who are imprisoned, compared to 3.3% for US citizens.
