U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report March 2020

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nation’s boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is clearly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (Note: The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from March 28, 2020.).

Inmate Citizenship:

- Mexico 19,555 inmates, 11.2 percent;
- Colombia 1,634 inmates, 0.9 percent;
- Dominican Republic 1,407 inmates, 0.8 percent;
- Cuba 1,072 inmates, 0.6 percent;
- Other / unknown countries 8,883 inmates, 5.1 percent;
- United States 142,171 inmates, 81.4 percent;

Total Inmates: 174,722 inmates.

To explain the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

Combining March 28th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 32,551 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 18.6 percent of the federal prison population.

With 19,555 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 60.1 percent, they were the vast majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top five offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 9,646 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 5.9 percent of the federal prison population.

Ex-Acting ICE Director Responds to Anastasia-Occasio Cortez' Accuzations

Open borders Groups Use Coronavirus as Excuse to Demand Release of ICE Detainees in Local Custody

Across the country, many organizations pushing open borders have rapidly latched on to the COVID-19 pandemic as an another excuse to try to get illegal aliens awaiting deportation out of custody and back into American communities.  They have especially targeted state and local law enforcement, as well as private contractors, who house immigration detainees for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). . .

ICE issues subpoenas to demand criminal alien information refused under Oregon sanctuary policies

ICE’s more aggressive stance on enforcement in states with sanctuary policies has reached Oregon now, and has already caused a break in the solid wall of resistance here. 

On February 18, Washington County responded to two subpoenas issued by ICE and is cooperating. Their news release announcing the change in policy says “Sheriff Garrett swore an oath to uphold state and federal law. The information commanded by the subpoenas is required by federal law, and may be provided as specifically allowed by ORS 180.805(1); therefore, the requested information will be shared.  …”

Read a detailed account about this development, including names of criminal aliens involved, at https://www.larslarson.com/criminal-alien-of-the-week-report-02-20-20-by-david-cross/
 

On Feb. 21, ICE announced issuance of subpoenas to more jurisdictions in Oregon:  

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) served five more immigration subpoenas today on the Hillsboro Police Department, Wasco County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police and Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, seeking information on illegal aliens who were criminally arrested in their jurisdictions. These immigration subpoenas are necessary due to dangerous sanctuary laws that are forcing Oregon law enforcement agencies as well as state, county and local governments, to refuse ICE’s requests for information and cooperation. …”  https://www.ice.gov/news/releases/ice-serves-5-immigration-subpoenas-oregon-criminal-alien-information-local-law

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens place a substantial economic burden on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 837 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($90,613.62) per day, ($634,295.34) per week, and ($33,073,971.30) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 837 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

ICE fights back against sanctuary policies

The announcement below describes ICE’s latest endeavor to protect the safety of citizens.

Thanks for this development go to new DHS policies under the Trump administration.

We’ve added bold font to some parts of the news release.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) – News release, January 18, 2020

ICE ISSUES SUBPOENAS TO OBTAIN INFORMATION REFUSED UNDER NY SANCTUARY POLICIES

ICE begins using longstanding legal authority to demand information regarding criminal aliens

[Condensed text.  See the entire news release here.]

NEW YORK — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) served four immigration subpoenas Friday on the New York Department of Corrections (NYDOC) requesting information on multiple illegal aliens who were criminally arrested in New York City, and yet under New York’s non-cooperation policies officials have refused to honor ICE detainers or even provide ICE with information about the release dates of criminal alien public safety threats. Issuance of these immigration subpoenas was necessary because the NYDOC has continued to ignore ICE’s requests for information and cooperation.

“Like any law enforcement agency, we are used to modifying our tactics as criminals shift their strategies; but it’s disheartening that we must change our practices and jump through so many hoops with partners who are restricted by sanctuary laws passed by politicians with a dangerous agenda,” said Henry Lucero, acting Deputy Executive Associate Director for ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations.

ICE uses statutorily-authorized immigration subpoenas to obtain information as part of investigations regarding potential removable aliens.  ICE has not historically needed to use its lawful authority to issue these subpoenas to obtain information from other law enforcement agencies as most law enforcement agencies throughout the country willingly provide ICE with information regarding aliens arrested for crimes in the interest of public safety.

ICE is using every tool available to obtain information regarding the whereabouts and other relevant information regarding removable aliens from jurisdictions that chose to, or are unable to, cooperate with ICE. 

This week, ICE also issued four immigration subpoenas to the Denver Justice Center. Should the law enforcement agencies neglect or refuse to respond to the subpoena, an immigration officer may coordinate with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the district in which the subpoena was issued to seek an order from the U.S. District Court requiring production pursuant to INA § 235(d)(4)(B), 8 C.F.R. § 287.4(d).

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report December 2019

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nations boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is clearly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (Note: The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from December 28, 2019.).

Inmate Citizenship:

- Mexico 19,978 inmates, 11.4 percent;
- Colombia 1,614 inmates, 0.9 percent;
- Dominican Republic 1,440 inmates, 0.8 percent;
- Cuba 1,088 inmates, 0.6 percent;
- Other / unknown countries 8,873 inmates, 5.1 percent;
- United States 142,123 inmates, 81.2 percent;

Total Inmates: 175,116 inmates.

To explain the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

Combining December 28th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 32,993 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 18.8 percent of the federal prison population.

With 19,978 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 60.6 percent, they were the vast majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top five offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 9,910 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.1 percent of the federal prison population.
