This is freaking unbelievable. Unbelievable and infuriating to say the least. The United States Department of Justice has just come out with their annual report. Obviously, since President Barack Hussein Obama is now gone the report could actually tell the truth and give the real numbers as to where our nation stands when it comes to foreign-born criminals currently in federal prison.
The numbers are staggering. 1 in 4 of the inmates in federal prison as of March 25, 2017, are indeed foreign born. If you translate that to concrete numbers 45.593 inmates aren’t American born citizens. Keeping these scumbags in prison costs us a frightening 1.4 billion dollars a year. That’s more money that we don’t have and that we have to borrow from the Chinese. All this while we have American children who go hungry and vets who can’t get adequate healthcare. Or even worse, vets who are homeless and alone while they go through the hell of adapting to society after having been in the living hell that is war.
“Illegal aliens who commit additional crimes in the United States are a threat to public safety and a burden on our criminal justice system,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a prepared statement. “This is why we must secure our borders through a wall and effective law enforcement, and we must strengthen cooperation between federal, state and local governments as we strive to fulfill our sacred duty of protecting and serving the American people.”
A small number of prisoners — 26, or .1 percent of all foreign-born inmates — have been granted asylum, while another 5,101 have been targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for deportation but are fighting it.
Even after subtracting out foreign-born prisoners who now are U.S. citizens, the federal prison population still is about 22 percent immigrant.
“It is a startling percentage, even when you consider some of these are people who are incarcerated for immigration violations,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies. “These high numbers show you there is a nexus between illegal immigration and crime.”
The Justice Department did not provide a breakdown of the crimes for which the immigrants are serving time. But separate data collected by the U.S. Sentencing Commission offers a snapshot. In fiscal year 2015, the most recent available, federal judges sentenced 29,166 non-citizens. Some 66 percent of prisoners were serving time for immigration violations.
Other common charges against immigrants included drug trafficking, drug possession, fraud, and firearms offenses.
Using the average cost per inmate in the federal prison system, the expense of incarcerating non-citizens is more than $1.2 billion a year.
“It’s a cost that can be reduced if we do a better job of controlling immigration, especially illegal immigration,” Vaughan said.
David Cross, a spokesman for Oregonians for Immigration Reform, said he was ecstatic about the Justice Department’s move toward transparency.
“I’m very excited about it,” said Cross, who has been collecting data about the immigrant population in the state prison system for years. “This really will hold people accountable if they have these statistics.”

The U.S. Marshals Service since April 5 has been providing ICE officials with daily reports of foreign-born pretrial detainees, according to the Justice Department. Officials said ICE expects that its analysis of the data will soon be complete.
The department also indicated it intends to expand the collection of data on immigrants in state prisons and local jails, where no program currently exists.
Vaughan said she expects so-called “sanctuary” jurisdictions to resist those data-collection efforts.
“They don’t want to know, and they won’t want anyone else to know … They want that to be a secret,” she said.”
Some of these in prison are also illegal criminal aliens who are waiting to be deported. Former President Barack Hussein Obama’s justice department wasn’t overly concerned about these “Future Democrat Voters’ so they would take their own sweet time getting them processed, and an even longer time giving the actual order for ice to go ahead with deporting this trash back to the cesspool they originated from.
It will be very interesting to see how the numbers change by next year now that we have a real American president, not just a charlatan narcist who wanted to be the ruler of the world. We now have President Trump, who cares about our laws, our sovereignty and actually puts American Citizens before any other. We just can’t keep taking in every corrupt nation’s problems.
These people are just not our responsibility, never were, never will be!
