    27 percent of all inmates in United States prisons are non U.S. citizens

    27 percent of all inmates in United States prisons are non U.S. citizens
    February 25th 2012

    According to the Congressional Register roughly “27 percent of the inmates in United States prisons are not U.S. citizens: 17.5 percent are from the nation of Mexico”. This is perhaps the clearest indication that we have a very serious illegal immigration problem here in the US.

    Some other startling fact were discovered, for example a whopping “37 percent of Texas border jails contain foreign nationals”, says Congressman Poe of Texas.

    How can any reasonable person say our borders are secure when 27 percent of America’s prisons are the home to foreign nationals?

    Imagine the cost to taxpayers. The cheapest prisons in the US cost tens of thousands of dollars a year per inmate. Some states have toyed with the idea of deportation, the Kansas Department of Corrections for example, could help its budget problems if it could deport nearly 300 inmates who are potentially illegal immigrants.

    But doing so either isn’t possible (because of a lack of extradition agreements) or may not be effective.

    Corrections Secretary Roger Werholtz told a joint House-Senate committee that about 80 of 293 inmates who were born in other countries and may be illegal immigrants might be eligible for deportation, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported. But deportation is no guarantee that inmates would remain in prison in their home countries.

    If inmates are freed, they could easily return to the United States, which might endanger public safety, Werholtz said in a 2009 interview…

    The inmates in question come from 27 different countries, though most (201) are from Mexico.


    More than 34,000 people have been killed or murdered in our neighboring country of Mexico since the drug cartels began their reign of terror in 2006.

    In honest assessment of the border situation neither the United States nor Mexico has operational control of some border regions. Drugs and people are smuggled into the U.S. and guns and money are smuggled to the south into Mexico. It is not just a Mexican problem it is also an American problem…

    Mexican officials I talk to say it is America’s huge demand for illegal drugs that is fueling the violence. American officials suggest it is corruption, abysmal social conditions, poverty that drives the violence. Others say the exploitation is a two way street. It is well known that American corporations and small businesses exploit illegal aliens who they hire at poverty rates so they can pass along the healthcare costs to the states. The federal government helps to subsidize these illegal workers by offering food stamps, low income housing and subsidized utilities…

    “It certainly makes you wonder about this unhealthy (symbiotic) relationship”, says David Vickers of Charlotte, N.C. “County jails throughout North Carolina are stressed to the limit with illegal immigrants”, he says.

    They should go further into the story to show how bad. Show the percent who are in prison for 5+ years, 10+ year sentences. Show the percent that are illegal aliens who have already been in prison before as well..... I'm betting some very startling and scary numbers.

    I'd bet personally that its closer to 35-40% of all inmates serving sentences exceeding 7 years to be illegal aliens. 7+ years also tends to suggest serious offenses and not just caught with an ounce of weed.
