One of the "mere editorial errors" in this report was a claim that immigrants were convicted of nearly 70,000 sex offenses in a span of 6 years. Except the time span was 55 years, not six; and the data was for arrests, not convictions

That claim is still online on the official Justice Department website, free for anyone to cite, with no indication that it's false

That’s absurd. It’s pointing out a gigantic misrepresentation of the actual statistic, not minimizing the crime. Nobody said no big deal. You’re better than that.

Good lord. If I made that kind of "editorial error" when I worked at my weekly newspaper I'd have been fired.

I know, right? It's breathtaking - incompetence or hubris. That they leave it in place adds to the suspicion it was accidentally on purpose.
