The “Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report” in the first full week of July 2024 has for radio show listeners and webpage followers a report on the number of criminal aliens incarcerated in the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) prison system.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report June 2024

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nation’s boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is clearly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (Note: The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from June 22, 2024.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 12,457 inmates, 8.0 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,528 inmates, 1.0 percent;
– Colombia 1,432 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Cuba 647 inmates, 0.4 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 7,685 inmates, 4.9percent;
– United States 132,525 inmates, 84.8 percent;

Total: 156,274 inmates.

To explain the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

Combining June 22nd BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 23,749 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 15.2 percent of the federal prison population.

With 12,457 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 52.5 percent, they represent a significant majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top five offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 6,742 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 4.6 percent of the federal prison population.
