U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Aliens in December 2016
January 23, 2017
By David Olen Cross
One of the negative impacts of having a significant foreign national population residing in the United States, be they legally or illegally present in the country, continues to be crime.
The scope and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country continues to go almost unreported by mainstream news sources online, on television or in hardcopy newspapers.
Here is an example of the mainstream media underreporting of foreign national crime.
Information on foreign national crime is readily available to any mainstream news source that has the ability to do a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.
A search of the U.S. BOP website reveals on the number and percentage of criminal aliens in federal prisons on December 24, 2016 (The most recent crime numbers available.).
– México 27,085 inmates, 14.3 percent;
– Colombia 1,694 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,644 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Cuba 1,244 inmates, 0.7 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 9,549 inmates, 5.1 percent;
– United States 147,976 inmates, 78.2 percent;
Total Inmates 189,192 inmates.
To clarify what these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages mean, I will put them into words:
On December 24th there were 41,216 criminal alien inmates in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 21.8 percent of the federal prison population; more than two in every ten prisoners were criminal aliens.
With 27,085 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 65.7 percent, they were the vast majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.
The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top five offenses, the reason BOP inmates were incarcerated in federal prisons, was for immigration crimes. There were 15,073 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 8.5 percent of the federal prison population.
The mainstream media’s ongoing failure to exercise its due diligence in reporting on foreign national crime means that elected and nonelected governmental officials responsible for law enforcement at a national, state and local level will not be held accountable in enforcing laws written to protect U.S. citizens and residents from criminal aliens that have and continue to invade our country.
