Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens place a substantial economic burden on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($116.89) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 709 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($82,875.01) per day, ($580,125.07) per week, and ($30,249,378.65) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 709 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs or victim assistance.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report November 2021

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report November 2021

December 1, 2021

By David Olen Cross

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nation’s 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 November 27, 2021.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 13,974 inmates, 8.9 percent;
– Colombia 1,619 inmates, 1.0 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,392 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Cuba 778 inmates, 0.5 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 7, 438 inmates, 4.8 percent;
– United States 130,959 inmates, 83.9 percent;

Total: 156,160 inmates.

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

Combining November 27th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 25,201 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 16.1 percent of the federal prison population.

With 13,974 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 55.5 percent, they represent a significant 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 six offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 6,644 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 4.6 percent of the federal prison population.
