Skip to comments.DHS/DOJ report: Thousands of avoidable crimes committed by foreign nationals in Texas alone

The number of crimes committed by foreign nationals in this country should be near zero. Why? Our allowance of immigration is a choice, and we should only be admitting the best of the best. To the extent we make a mistake with legal immigration or to the extent that there are illegal aliens, they should be immediately deported.
Thanks to our weak policies, a report from the DHS and the DOJ paints a picture of crime and mayhem by foreign nationals. They are bringing drugs into this country and needlessly clogging up our federal criminal justice and prison system. A proper focus on expedited deportation and ending sanctuary cities would go a long way toward reducing crime, making illicit drugs less obtainable and more expensive, and saving money in our criminal justice system, a goal that is obsessively pursued by interest groups in both parties.
According to the report, there are a whopping 57,820 foreign nationals in DOJ custody. This includes 38,132 known or suspected aliens sitting in Bureau of Prisons (BOP) facilities post-conviction and 19,688 confirmed aliens in the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service (USMS), mainly pretrial detainees but also those already sentenced to short sentences or awaiting transfer to BOP custody. That alone accounts for 37 percent of those in the custody of USMS. There are several thousand more suspected but unconfirmed non-citizens in custody. These are all people in the regular federal criminal justice system, not in the immigration system under the auspices of ICE. The report is prepared every quarter at the direction of President Trumps original executive order on immigration calling for an accounting of criminal aliens in the criminal justice system.
Heres the kicker: 46 percent (17,621) of known or suspected aliens in BOP custody had committed drug trafficking or other drug-related offenses.

We are witnessing a newfound obsession in both parties with the cost of incarceration and the idea that too many people are sitting in prison for drug offenses (that they mischaracterize as simple possession rather than trafficking). But the drug population is only this prominent in the federal system, which only represents 11 percent of the incarcerated population. Most people are incarcerated in state facilities. And now we know, such a large percentage of them are in the federal system because of their immigration status. Thus, rather than a crisis of too many being incarcerated for drug charges, we have a crisis of too many illegal aliens bringing drugs into the country and then clogging our criminal justice system while poisoning our people.As he points out, both parties want to reduce our prison population and costs. Getting the illegals out of our prisons would go a long way toward meeting that objective (and, more importantly, preventing new illegals from coming here in the first place). The solution is SO simple, yet there is no political will for it except for President Trump: wall, increased and accelerated deportations, e-verify, jail business owners for hiring illegals, end sanctuary cities, end bogus asylum, end anchor babies (which lead to "anchor families"), and no amnesty.
... and then there’s the Somalis that Obama seeded all over the country.
MCC Federal Metropolitan Correction Center in San Diego nickname is Tijuana Hilton. poor inmates have it good.
Uh...no. Democrats only care about the cost of incarceration in light of using the issue as leverage. That and letting their constituents out to continue to main and kill...and vote.
To which the left’s answer is to bring in more of them.
You want to bring in foreigners? You want to help refugees? Then let’s bring the white South African farmers who are having their land stolen (often violently) to America. They’ll work, and they’ll assimilate well.
