Does the increase in the number of immigration violations lead to increase in crime rate?"

The number of violations and the crime rate are the same thing. The number of illegal immigrants cannot be a constant. It is true that you can assess the relationships over time for the number of illegal immigrants and the crime rate but you have only provided two data values. Two data values are insufficient for statistical data analysis. Describe the data in much more detail. For example, what does crime rate mean? For example, does crime rate mean the number of arrests, the number of convictions, or is it assessed by the number of victims (use any example to create chart and provide data?

The scales of measurement for the variables have nothing to do with who is providing the data. Explain why the variables are ordinal according to the definition of ordinal.

Please describe the actual statistical analysis that is performed, why chose that method, and provide a summary of the data analysis results in a format consistent with the statistical analysis.
Provide data and create a table over a 20-year time frame where a person can compare the number of illegal immigrants to the crime rate.
