DOJ: 64% of All Federal Arrests in 2018 Were Non-citizens

While the report doesn’t separate legal aliens from illegal aliens, federal incarceration statistics show that 93 percent of aliens in federal custody in 2018 were illegal.

Epoch Times: Noncitizens accounted for 64 percent of all federal arrests in 2018, according to new data released on Aug. 22 by the Justice Department. The surge was driven largely by immigration-crime arrests, which have soared to the highest level in at least two decades.

Federal authorities conducted 108,667 arrests for immigration crimes in 2018, up more than five times from the 20,942 arrests in 1998. Immigration arrests accounted for 95 percent of the total increase in the number of federal arrests over the past 20 years, the data shows.

That data also shows a flip in the percentage of arrests of noncitizens compared to arrests of U.S. citizens. In 1998, arrests of citizens accounted for 63 percent of the total arrests. By 2018, arrests of noncitizens had grown to 64 percent of the total.

In a press release accompanying the data, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) noted that while noncitizens accounted for 7 percent of the U.S. population, they committed 24 percent of all federal drug arrests, 25 percent of all federal property arrests, and 28 percent of all federal fraud arrests. read more

  1. You take into account the entire story behind these illegals and the drain on our nation, its like there really is a conspiracy

  2. taking into account that ‘legal’ aliens, because of their status of ‘legal’ are not pre-disposed to break the law in the first place … & ‘illegals’ ARE pre-disposed to break the law in the second place (because they already have broken the law by coming into the country illegally … am I confusing anyone w/ the logic? … apologies for making your brain cells work) …
    … I’m guessing that the majority (charitably sayin 85%) of crimes are committed by ‘illegal’ aliens

    they are a scourge, willingly, upon our sovereignty … it’s what our congress wants … damn them all
