A report released Thursday by the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security found that more than one in five of all persons in Bureau of Prisons custody were foreign born, and that 94% of these aliens were here illegally.
Attorney General Sessions said: “we know based on sentencing data that non-citizens commit a substantially disproportionate number of drug-related offenses, which contributes to our national drug abuse crisis. The simple fact is that any offense committed by a criminal alien is ultimately preventable. One victim is too many. It’s time for Congress to enact the President’s immigration reform agenda so that we start welcoming the best and brightest while turning away drug dealers, gang members, and other criminals.”
