Call me skeptical, but I think the Federal Bureau of Prisons, which reported on May 26 that 20 percent of the inmate population in federal prisons are aliens, is a little low in their estimate. In 2015, it was reported that almost 37 percent of those receiving federal sentences for crimes were illegal aliens.
Illegal aliens made up 16.8 percent of drug trafficking cases, 20 percent of kidnapping cases, 74 percent of drug possession cases, 12.3 percent of money laundering cases, and 12 percent of murder convictions.
Any estimate of the number of illegal aliens in our country needs to be taken with a pound of salt.
The nonsense estimates of 11 million illegal aliens in the country would be about 3.5 percent of the population. It iss nonsense, because that estimate has been used for over a decade and a half, and illegal immigration has continued at an accelerated rate. One retired Border Patrol Sector Chief agreed with me recently that the number of illegal aliens could be 35 – 40 million, and maybe as high as 50 million. That includes illegal entries and visa overstays.
Whatever the number of illegal aliens in federal prisons, you can probably double it if you add county jails and state prisons. And to that, add your own estimate of those illegal aliens who committed crimes but weren’t reported or caught.
In the past, it was believed that that only one of six criminals ended up in jail. Most perpetrators were not caught. Some were caught but not charged. Some who were charged were not convicted. Some who were convicted were not sentenced to prison.
Nobody knows the real number with so many jurisdictions in the country lying about crime statistics, declaring themselves “sanctuaries” for illegal aliens and failing to honor Immigration and Customs Enforcement holds.
That just adds to the uncertainty.
One thing that is certain: Americans are being victimized on a daily basis by criminal illegal aliens who are supported by elected officials and businesses and activist groups who want to continue to have porous borders and little, if any, interior enforcement.
