The Department of Justice has released new quarterly numbers, as required through an executive order signed by President Trump earlier this year, detailing how many foreign born individuals are currently incarcerated in the U.S. federal prison system.
According to the numbers, one-in-five individuals were born outside of the U.S. and a significant number are illegal aliens. From the Alien Incarceration Report:
A total of 58,766 known or suspected aliens were in in DOJ custody at the end of FY 2017, including 39,455 persons in BOP custody and 19,311 in USMS custody.
Of this total, 37,557 people had been confirmed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be aliens (i.e., non-citizens and non-nationals), while 21,209 foreign-born people were still under investigation by ICE to determine alienage.
Among the 37,557 confirmed aliens, 35,334 people (94 percent) were unlawfully present. These numbers include a 92 percent unlawful rate among 24,476 confirmed aliens in BOP custody and a 97 percent unlawful rate among 13,081 confirmed aliens in USMS custody.
This report does not include data on the foreign-born or alien populations in state prisons and local jails.

I would bet that the percentage is even higher in state prisons, if taken nationwide.
thank you, left wing and rinos.
this is what my taxes go for instead of things for my family or charity.
I would guess this it is considerably higher.
All DACA ,Dreamers ?
What percentage of homicides are committed by illegal aliens?
One estimate from Texas was two thirds in that state:
I can hear the lefts reply already, that theyre only there in disproportionate numbers because of raycizm. To be fair, we should put more native-born white males in prison (doesnt matter if they didnt do anything, its the outcome which matters). At least, thats the way some public schools are playing it (dont punish minority offenders, but throw the book at white males).
The illegal population in the jails and state prisons is often higher than feds. The border states are extremely affected by illegal crime.
I know how we can save money. I’m just sayin’
That’s a lot of illegals.
Kate Steinle’s killer ought to be one of those in prison, but noooo.
Gee. If only there was a way to bring those numbers down. If only there was a way to avoid that many illegals from wasting airspace in our prisons.
Just a case of illegals doing the jobs that American Citizens won’t do! Right?
States and federal governments looking for ways to save money? Deport all imprisoned illegal aliens back to whence they came. Yes, it is just that simple.
