    MEXICO REFUSES TO TAKE BACK THEIR CRIMINALS

    MEXICO REFUSES TO TAKE BACK THEIR CRIMINALS



    POSTED BY: RED ROCK EDITORIAL STAFF AUGUST 21, 2015


    More than 40,000 illegal alien criminals from 79 different countries are housed in federal prisons – costing taxpayers millions every year.

    The International Prison Transfer program should help to alleviate the problem as it permits willing criminals to transfer back to their country’s prison system. That could be at least a partial solution, but the problem is that many countries simply refused to accept the transfers – and there are no enforcement measures within the treaty.

    From 2011-2013, nations participating in the treaty refused to accept 959 transfers approved for foreign inmates. The ensuing costs to taxpayers was $26 million.

    Federal inmates from the 97 treaty nations number roughly 43,000, and account for one in five federal prisoners, according to the IG. That number is on the rise. Federal prisons housed10,000 fewer inmates from treaty nations a decade ago. Less than one percent of those inmates from transfer treaty nations — 0.6 percent — go home, partly because nations like Canada and Mexico in particular often refuse to take their criminals back.

    “It really comes down to a question of numbers,” DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz said in a statement.

    “Transferring more foreign national prisoners to serve the remainder of their sentence in their home country would not only help reduce overcrowding in the federal prison system, but also lower costs.”
