The Justice Department by the numbers
The Pew Research Center’s Analysis released on monday of arrests made by the Fed show huge increases in immigration related offences.
The Bureau of Justice Statistics released a report last month found here that shows immigration offenses accounted for fully half of federal arrests in 2014, up from only 28% a decade earlier.
HOMELAND SECURITY BEAST
The Department of Homeland Security, and subsets Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), now makes more arrests than the FBI, DEA, BATFE, U.S. Marshal’s Service, and all other branches of the Justice Department combined.
In 2014, 61% of all federal arrests – or more than 100,000 – occurred in just five federal judicial districts along the U.S.-Mexico border.
61% of federal arrests are now of non-U.S. citizens.
These arrests, mostly for immigration offenses, but including thousands for other crimes, do not include the hundreds of thousands of non-criminal apprehensions of illegal aliens each year.
37% of all criminal defendants in federal district courts in 2014 were illegal aliens.
Federal arrests make up only one percent of the total arrests in the United States each year, local and state law enforcement pulling in the other 99%. The reports on criminals and their nationality are hard to come by. Sanctuary cities by policy do not disclose immigration status by default. Other factors at play play as well.
Homeland Security Growing Your Jobs.
The backlog of cases is staggering. With the drive to ferret out illegals by the Trump admin Federal prisons are being over run. The homeland security department has been scrambling to find suitable temporary housing for pre trail detainees. The private prison industry is going to fill the need and then some..In 1994, fewer than 2,500 immigration cases wound up in district court, 21,789 did in 2014. With the open door policy of Obama that number for 2015-2017 will be staggering. The average sentence in 2014 was 15 months in federal prison. While federal prison population is generally are on a slight decline, immigration incarcerations are straining prisons run by private companies, which are disproportionately set aside for immigration offenders.
Homeland security locking them up and private industry building, maintaining and profiting from our government policies on our dime. I for one would like to follow the money trail on this one I bet it could get real creepy.
Jeff Sessions should give us all the straight numbers on all this, it’s his baby now and the tangled web must be unwound. When this gest piled up on Trump’s desk I hope he see’s it as a gift from Obama to save us money and give us more JOBS…..
Thank you very much
