U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report May 2020

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report May 2020

June 1, 2020

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 May 23, 2020.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 17,629 inmates, 10.6 percent;
– Colombia 1,593 inmates, 1.0 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,315 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,013 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 8,227 inmates, 5.0 percent;
– United States 135,922 inmates, 82.0 percent;

Total Inmates: 165,699 inmates.

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

Combining May 23rd BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 29,777 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 18.0 percent of the federal prison population.

With 17,629 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 59.2 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 8,297 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 5.3 percent of the federal prison population.
