A new report by the Texas Department of Public Safety has provided data on the number of illegal alien arrests over the past six years, just for the state of Texas alone.
According to the report, from the period between June 1, 2011, through July 31, 2017, more than 228,000 illegal alien criminals were booked into Texas jails.
The arrested criminals – all of whom were in the United States illegally – have been charged with a combined total of over 606,000 criminal offenses during their criminal careers.
The Department of Homeland Security reported that at least 66 percent (over 152,000) of the arrested criminals had been in the United States illegally at the time of their previous arrest.
Arrests of illegal aliens in Texas over the past six years included charges for the following:
- 72,628 – Drug Charges
- 72,203 – Assaults
- 42,155 – Thefts
- 47,021 – Obstructing Police
- 17,451 – Burglaries
- 9,113 – Weapons
- 6,516 – Sexual Assaults
- 3,991 – Robberies
- 1,234 – Homicides
- 736 – Kidnapping
Actual convictions of crimes committed by illegal aliens in Texas, according to the DHS records, totaled over 272,000 within the same time period, including the following:
- 35,725 – Drug convictions
- 27,201 – Assault convictions
- 23,091 – Obstructing police
- 19,198 – Theft convictions
- 8,565 – Burglaries
- 3,801 – Weapons convictions
- 2,984 – Sexual assaults
- 2,055 – Robberies
- 507 – Homicides
- 249 – Kidnappings
The report notes that this data is for arrests and convictions in the state of Texas only, and the criminal aliens may have also had other offenses in other states.
In May, the Department of Justice released data on the number of illegal alien criminals who are currently incarcerated in federal prisons.
That report, as of March 25, 2017, revealed that out of the 45,493 foreign-born inmates currently being held in the Federal Bureau of Prisons, 41,554 of those are non-citizens, and nearly 54 percent of those are slated for deportation. These numbers do not reflect those being held in local jails across the country.
The full report on “Information Regarding Immigration Status of Aliens Incarcerated Under the Supervision of the Federal Bureau of Prisons” can be read below from the DOJ website:
The Department’s Bureau of Prisons (BOP) has an operational process for maintaining data regarding foreign-born inmates in its custody. On a daily basis, BOP supplies this data to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). ICE, in turn, analyzes that data to determine the immigration status of each inmate and provides that information back to BOP.
By way of satisfying the department’s first quarterly report of this data, below is information regarding aliens currently incarcerated under the supervision of BOP. This data is current as of March 25, 2017:
There are 45,493 foreign-born inmates currently in BOP custody, of which 3,939 are U.S. citizens (either naturalized or derivative). Of the remaining 41,554 foreign-born inmates (aliens):
o Approximately 22,541 (54.2 percent) are aliens for which final immigration orders have been issued for their removal;
o Approximately 13,886 (33.4 percent) are aliens who are under ICE investigation for possible removal;
o 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
o Approximately 26 (0.1 percent) are aliens who have been granted relief on the basis of asylum claims.
