WASHINGTON D.C. – Here are the numbers you probably won’t see on CNN.
My cmnt: Keep in mind these are just the numbers for Federal Prisons. The number of illegal aliens incarcerated in all jails and prisons is much higher. If they are deported it is like being paroled because democrats will just let them back in all over again to commit new crimes and to be incarcerated all over again. It is the proverbial vicious cycle.
My cmnt: Altogether illegal aliens cost the American taxpayer 100s of billions of dollars every year for their education, healthcare, housing, crimes, and upkeep. Most do not become model citizens and even if they do they have still broken our immigration laws and sidestepped the system and gotten the coveted golden ticket legal immigrants wait decades to obtain.
There seems to a healthy population of illegal immigrants within the federal prison system when compared to the confirmed United States citizen population, when comparing BOP data related to 2019 and the total number of inmates in federal custody from that same year.
At the end of 2019, there were an estimated 1,435,500 people in state
and federal prisons, down 33,000 from year-end 2018 (2.2 percent
There were 1,260,400 people under state prison jurisdiction,
28,200 fewer than in 2018 (2.2 percent decline); and 175,100 in the
federal prison system, 4,800 fewer than in 2018 (2.7 percent decline).
In fact, when crunching the numbers, the federal prison population of illegal aliens is slightly over 11% of the entire inmate population – even though the illegal immigrant population within the United States is estimated between 3.2% to 3.6% of the U.S. population.
By the end of 2019, the total number of inmates housed within the Federal Bureau of Prisons was 175,166 people – that both U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants combined.
Yet, according to the fourth quarter report from the DOJ on “Known or Suspected Aliens in BOP Custody”, there were at least 19,767 criminal illegal immigrants confirmed.
One thought on “Revealed: Illegal aliens make up more than 11% of inmate population, yet less than 4% of U.S. population”
I remember what it was like for a number of Christian, Kurdish, and Yazidi (refugee) immigrants from Iraq under Obama. They couldn’t dare do anything but obey the humiliating pro-Muslim policies; those that spoke out faced deportation. Democrats love grey areas on immigration status because people who do not have concrete rights (or non-rights) are easy to manipulate and control. Would an illegal from Columbia dare support Republicans? The ‘sanctuary cities’ would report him for deportation.
