DOJ Report: 24 Percent of Federal Prison Inmates are Foreign Born

In response to acts committed by illegal immigrants, immigration supporters argue that immigrants commit less crimes than do native-born American citizens.

But that is not exactly the case.

The Justice Department released a report that destroyed that argument.

The report was made in response to President Donald Trump’s January executive order calling for an overhaul of the U.S. immigration system to increase public safety.

It revealed that almost one out of every four federal inmates is foreign-born, and of those, more than half are subjected to deportation.

Of the 188,658 inmates in the federal prison system, 45,493 are foreign-born, 3,939 of which are now U.S. citizens, leaving 41,554 who are still foreign nationals.

The agency reported that immigrations orders have been issued for 54.2 percent of that number – which is around 22,541.

The report indicated further that:

Approximately 13,886 (33.4 percent) are aliens who are under ICE investigation for possible removal;

Approximately 5,101 (12.3 percent) are aliens still pending adjudication (in other words, ICE has charged these aliens as removal cases, but a final disposition has not yet been reached); and

Approximately 26 (0.1 percent) are aliens who have been granted relief on the basis of asylum claims.

“Illegal aliens who commit additional crimes in the United States are a threat to public safety and a burden on our criminal justice system,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a prepared statement. “This is why we must secure our borders through a wall and effective law enforcement, and we must strengthen cooperation between federal, state and local governments as we strive to fulfill our sacred duty of protecting and serving the American people.”

On Tuesday, Journalist and illegal alien Jose Antonio Vargas argued to Fox News host Tucker Carlson that “immigrants in this country — undocumented immigrants specifically — commit less crime than native-born Americans.”

Clearly he didn’t read the DOJ report before making that statement.
