Sadly, this will presumably not be accompanied with stats on violent crime rates by immigrants and how they compare to the native population.
Can we get a similar list of crimes committed by cops?

This is one of the more worrisome things I've seen yet. Based on the order as excerpted in the story, I'm not clear if the "detailed list" is meant to include names and other personally identifiable information on the offenders. If so, what outcome does Trump expect? It sure sounds to me like such a list would encourage vigilantism. Trying to make members of a scapegoat group easily, publicly identifiable is .... concerning.
