Dr. Deborah Sibila

Assistant professor of criminal justice

Sibila recently published “Citizenship Status and Arrest Patterns for Violent and Narcotic-Related Offenses in Federal Judicial Districts along the U.S./Mexico Border” in the American Journal of Criminal Justice.

Media reports routinely reference the drug-related violence in Mexico, linking crime in communities along the Southwest U.S. border to illegal immigrants. The primary purpose of the research is to examine whether media assertions can be supported. Logistic regression models were run to determine the impact of citizenship on the likelihood of disproportionate arrest for federal drug and violent crimes along the U.S./Mexico border. In arrests for homicide, assault, robbery and weapons offenses, U.S. citizens were disproportionately more likely than non-citizens to be arrested. The only federal crime where non-citizens were disproportionately more likely to be arrested than U.S. citizens was for marijuana offenses. Results of the current study challenge the myth of the criminal immigrant.

Late three-pointer sinks Lumberjacks in 70-68 setback in San Antonio

In a game with 13 ties and 15 lead changes, the team that had the ball last was, in all likelihood, going to win the game. That team happened to be the University of the Incarnate Word, who defeated SFA’s men’s basketball team 70-68 Saturday in San Antonio.

SFA senior Dallas Cameron silenced a raucous crowd by drilling a pair of free throws with 28 seconds left, but UIW brought the Cardinals’ congregation back to life after drilling a corner three that ended up being the dagger in SFA’s three-game Southland Conference winning-streak.
