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.

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). . .

Trump Closes U.S. Mexico Border to Combat Covid-19

Trump announces U.S.-Mexico border closure to stem spread of coronavirus

The U.S.-Mexico border will be closed to nonessential travel to further help stem the spread of the novel coronavirus, President Donald Trump announced Friday.

"As we did with Canada, we're also working with Mexico to implement new rules at our ports of entry to suspend non-essential travel," Trump said. "These new rules and procedures will not impede lawful trade and commerce." Trump said that Mexico is also suspending air travel from Europe. . . 

 

 

Supreme Court Allows Remain in Mexico Policy to remain in place

The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their applications are processed in the U.S.

The court’s decision overturns a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals injunction against the policy covering the entire U.S.-Mexico border. Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the only judge who dissented. However, the ruling does not dispel other legal challenges currently brought against the policy in other courts. . .

Bicameral Legislation Introduced to Stop Greenlighting Drivers’ Licenses for Illegal Aliens

On Wednesday, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Representative Ken Buck (R-CO) introduced legislation that would block grant funding from the Department of Justice (DOJ) to local law enforcement in sanctuary states with policies that permit illegal aliens to obtain drivers’ licenses. . .

ICE‘s heroic achievements

The much-maligned ICE agents (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) are actually saving our country from extensive harm by criminals -- proof of this is in the ICE news release of December 6 summarizing results of their investigations for this fiscal year.

Citizens need an effective and supported Immigration and Customs Enforcement Team.  Presently incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections are 126 illegal aliens serving time for murder, 168 serving time for rape and 183 for sexual abuse.  They, illegal aliens, commit serious crimes far out of proportion to what would be expected from their cohort. 

Below are excerpts from the Dec. 6 ICE news release.  To read the full text, click here.

ICE HSI ANNOUNCES RECORD-HIGH NUMBER OF CRIMINAL ARRESTS IN FY19

WASHINGTON – During fiscal year 2019 (FY19), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) effectively combated transnational criminal threats against the United States resulting in a record-breaking number of criminal arrests. HSI is the principal investigative component of the Department of Homeland Security…

HSI arrested 5,750 criminals associated with human smuggling investigations in FY19, a 41 percent increase from FY18, due in part to the use of Rapid DNA testing technology to detect fraudulent families at the Southwest border. During FY19, over 400 HSI personnel deployed to the southern border to protect children from being smuggled into the United States through fraudulent family units, often tied to larger transnational criminal syndicates.

In FY19, HSI arrested 2,197 criminals associated with human trafficking, a 38 percent increase from FY18, as well as identified and/or assisted 428 victims of human trafficking in FY19, a 39 percent increase from the previous year. HSI uses a victim-centered approach in its trafficking investigations, where equal value is placed on both the identification and stabilization of victims and prosecution of the traffickers. HSI also developed the Strategic Trafficking Outreach Program (S.T.O.P.) to educate and raise awareness as well as how to report instances of suspected trafficking.

HSI saw a record-breaking year in narcotics enforcement by leveraging partnerships and using a variety of task forces, including its Border Enforcement Security Taskforce (BEST). HSI seized more than 12,450 lbs. of opioids in FY19 – a record-breaking amount – exceeding FY18 seizures by more than 2,500 lbs. HSI also seized more than 3,600 lbs. of fentanyl and made more than 1,900 fentanyl-related arrests in FY19, which are both substantially higher than FY18 figures. HSI also seized more than 145,000 lbs. of methamphetamine in FY19.

Identity and benefit fraud pose a severe threat to national security. HSI leads 36 Document and Benefit Fraud Task Forces (DBFTF) across the country to combat this fraudulent activity. HSI made 2,198 arrests tied to identity and benefit fraud in FY19, a nearly 75 percent increase from FY18.

HSI also continued its fight against child predators and transnational gangs in FY19.  In FY19, HSI arrested 3,957 child predators as well as rescued or identified 1,069 victims.  HSI also made 3,886 criminal gang arrests, including 337 criminal arrests of MS-13 gang members during the same timeframe. …
