The purpose of this study is to examine the perceptions and attitudes of CRCJ majority (White/Caucasian) college students and minority (Black, Mexican American/Hispanic, American Indian, Asian/Pacific Islander or Other) towards illegal immigrants and crime in the United States. An administered survey was given to criminology/criminal justice university students that surveyed their perception and knowledge of illegal immigration and their impression on whether illegal immigration and crime are correlated. It is anticipated that the students' overall answers to the survey will show that they do not perceive that illegal immigration is related to crime in the United States.
