U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report June 2019

July 5, 2019

By David Olen Cross

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nations boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is clearly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (Note: The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from June 22, 2019.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 21,627 inmates, 12.0 percent;
– Colombia 1,664 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,452 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,161 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 9,105 inmates, 5.0 percent;
– United States 145,335 inmates, 80.6percent;

Total Inmates: 180,344 inmates.

To explain the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

Combining June 22nd BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 35,009 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 19.4 percent of the federal prison population.

With 21,627 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 61.8 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 inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 10,984 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.5 percent of the federal prison population.
