DHS Report: Nearly one-fourth of federal inmates are illegal aliens

In compliance with an executive order by President Trump, the Department of Homeland Security has released a quarterly report that includes data on illegal aliens in federal prisons.

The report, which includes data up to June 24, states that the Justice Department’s Bureau of Prisons has 187,855 inmates in federal custody.

Over 22 percent of the inmates incarcerated in federal prisons are foreign-born illegal aliens – a total of 42,034.

DHS breaks down the illegal alien prisoners as follows, including only seven who were saved from deportation:

  • 19,749 (46.9%) are aliens who have received final orders of removal;
  • 21,121 (50.2%) are aliens who are under ICE investigation for possible removal;
  • 1,157 (2.8%) are aliens whose cases are pending adjudication before an Immigration Judge in the Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR);
  • Seven (.0002%) are aliens who have been granted relief.

Additionally, Homeland Security reported there is a total of 50,135 illegal alien criminals who have been “detained” by the U.S. Marshal Service and are in pretrial status.

Out of those, 12,005 “self-deported,” 9,857 have received final orders of removal, 2,047 still have cases pending before an immigration judge, and 101 aliens have been charged by ICE but a final decision to remove them has not yet been reached.

On Monday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced another recent massive roundup of criminal illegal aliens on Long Island, reporting that ICE officers arrested 32 convicted sex offenders over a 10-day period concluded August 3, in a bust dubbed “Operation SOAR” (Sex Offender Alien Removal).

Those arrested were from the countries of Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Mexico, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago.

From the ICE report, the following examples were given of some of the arrests made:

The original charge was sexual abuse in the first degree: sexual contact with an individual less than 11 years old. The victim in this case was 7 years old. He was arrested in Mineola, July 25, and will remain in ICE custody pending removal proceedings.

The Washington Examiner reached out to Jessica Vaughan, a director at the Center for Immigration Studies, who stated, “For a long time the number of non-citizens serving time in federal prison has been disproportionate to their share of the population. This is because a disproportionate number are border-related crimes, such as human smuggling and drug trafficking, and some are immigration offenders. These crimes are most often committed by citizens of other countries, and these numbers show why we need to control our borders.”
