In two different and unrelated statistical strolls the other day, all from the proverbial altitude of 50,000 feet, I found that:

St. Croix, one of the two major islands in the U.S. Virgin Islands, has, at 92.1 per 100,000, a higher homicide rate than any nation in the world; and
USVI has a larger proportion of foreign-born, about one-third, than any U.S. state or territory, save the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
How do the Crucian homicide rate and the migration data relate, if at all? Is it a matter of cause and effect or a coincidence? And what clues could be brought to bear on that question? Those of us in the migration policy business often face similar sets of numbers, and this particular pair may have broader implications in that field.

My first reaction was to think about how America’s homicide rate of 5.3 per 100,000 is dwarfed by those of such migrant source-countries as El Salvador, which leads the world at 61.8 per 100,000, according to the Index Mundi tallies, Honduras at 41.4, and Guatemala at 26.1. These are the three nations that are providing us with such a surge of illegal aliens at the southern border, apparently egged on by the Biden administration policies of non-enforcement.

Maybe the USVI, with all its migrants, was pulling them from high-homicide countries, and this was the cause of the high rates on St. Croix. (The other major island, and the site of the capital, is St. Thomas; the third is the less populated, and site of some expensive resorts, St. John.)

Ken below is not correct. My wife and I also jus got back from our third trip to St Croix . We also have been all over the island. The violence has been " marketed" as non-tourist, black on black, gang crime only realized in pockets. Not true. My wife and I were held up in St Croix by two black men with 9mm weapons on April 25, 2021. Three shots were fired and my wife's belongings stolen at the Coral Princess, in Christiansted just feet from our beach side condo. This happened at 8:30 PM. Not in a dark alley someplace. USVI now boasts the 4th highest murder rate in the world per capita, with murder being the king of all crimes it stands to reason all other crimes are also high. Ken, like others are delusional about the crime rate and many dismiss the real problems to try and protect business on the island and ensure tourist dollars keep coming in. The crime is real. The problem is poverty, combined with a poor educational system, fatherless homes and a corrupt and ineffective police department. Combine these macro issues with the fact that criminals are carrying illegal weapons and citizens can not freely carry to protect themselves. The result : Violent crime is rising in the USVI and to think otherwise is pure ignorance of the facts. Look into the UN's reports on crime in the USVI.

Bill, we are about to take our third trip to St. Croix. Some of the materials on violence are dated. We have been all over the island and never felt unsafe - and I am a pretty risk-averse person. We are actually going to start the process of building a home there. I think most of the violence is in non-tourist neighborhoods and some after the bars close in peak tourist season with intoxicated individuals walking from bars back to apartments they rent in Christiansted or Frederiksted.

With the above statistics, is there any alarm for general population to be overly concerned about crime if common sense is put into play.
Thank you.
