Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens pose high economic cost on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($94.55) per day.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 967 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.
