US federal lockups hold 1,503 Dominican inmates

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report March 2022
April 1, 2022
By David Olen Cross

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 March 26, 2022.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 13,841 inmates, 9.0 percent;
– Colombia 1,637 inmates, 1.1 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,503 inmates, 1.0 percent;
– Cuba 766 inmates, 0.5 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 7, 661 inmates, 5.0 percent;
– United States 128,926 inmates, 83.5 percent;

Total: 154,334 inmates.

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

Combining March 26th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 25,408 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 16.5 percent of the federal prison population.

With 13,841 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 54.5 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 6,871 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 4.8 percent of the federal prison population.

For a population of more than 2 million, those numbers are pretty low.

These are the federal prison numbers only. The present census is about a 100+ more than the previous report published by DT of Dec 2nd totaling 1392.

There are way more Dominicans in US state and municipal jails.
