Non-citizens commit 42% of federal crimes, despite being 7% of population

American Mirror: A new federal report shows non-citizens in the United States commit nearly half of all federal crimes, or more than six times their proportion to the American population.

For 2017, data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Surveyshows non-citizens comprise about 7 percent of the country’s population, but the 2018 Annual Report and Sourcebook of Federal Sentencing Statistics shows they committed more than 40 percent of all federal crimes.

The United States Sentencing Commission reviewed 321,000 sentencing documents s in fiscal year 2018 and outlined several statistics in the annual report:

In fiscal year 2018, the courts reported 69,425 felony and Class A misdemeanor cases to the Commission. This represents an increase of 2,552 cases from the prior fiscal year, and the first increase since fiscal year 2011.

The race of federal offenders remained largely unchanged from prior years. In fiscal year 2018, 54.3 percent of all offenders were Hispanic, 21.2 percent were White, 20.6 percent were Black, and 3.8 percent were of another race. Non-U.S. Citizens accounted for 42.7 percent of all federal offenders.

Immigration cases accounted for the largest single group of offenses in fiscal year 2018, comprising 34.4 percent of all reported cases. Cases involving drugs, firearms, and fraud were the next most common types of offenses after immigration cases. Together these four types of offenses accounted for 82.9 percent of all cases reported to the Commission in fiscal year 2018.

A breakdown of crimes in the report show about 92 percent of immigration crimes, or about 21,835 cases, involved non-citizens. But they also committed other crimes at far higher rates than their 7 percent proportion of the population as a whole.  more

  1. So why do we have over 23 million non-citizens in this country? It’s probably a lot more but far too many non-citizens than should be here. What’s wrong with America for Americans only and those who want be citizens who are here legally.

  2. ” Non-U.S. Citizens accounted for 42.7 percent of all federal offenders.”

    And how many of those “Non-US Citizens” were here legally?

  3. Its sure is nice that elected libs spend their working days (two hours?) advocating for these lost souls instead of protecting the citizens they took an oath to protect.

  4. I would have bet that it was congressmen and senators (or their staff members) committed more than 47% of federal crimes. The illegals only committing the majority of the balance of crimes.
