ILLEGAL CRIME SPREE: Non-Citizens Made Up 64 Percent of Federal Arrests in 2018

These numbers are from the Department of Justice.

Data from the Department of Justice shows that non-citizens accounted for a whopping 64 percent of federal arrests in 2018, as the number has spiked over the past several decades due to the worsening of the illegal immigration epidemic.

Non-citizens make up only seven percent of the population but make up a vastly disproportionate part of the federal arrest rate, the Department of Justice (DOJ) reports. Between the years of 1998 and 2018, the arrests of non-citizens at the federal level have spiked by 234 percent while U.S. citizen arrests have grown by only 10 percent.

This news bolsters President Donald Trump’s case that illegal immigration results in more crime and makes the U.S. less safe.

The Trump administration’s crackdown against illegal immigration has been effective in getting more non-citizen lawmakers off the streets. According to DOJ data, federal immigration apprehensions have increased by 50,000 from 2017 to 2018.

Non-citizens were also apprehended for a disproportionate amount of crimes not related to immigration offenses. They were charged with 28 percent of federal fraud cases, 25 percent of federal property offenses, and 24 percent of drug crimes.

No matter how you spin it, the data is clear: Illegals commit crimes at a drastically higher rate than American citizens. Recent reports in the news illustrate the horrors that occur regularly throughout the country due to illegal immigration and the sanctuary policies that open the door for violators to commit heinous acts.

While Trump’s policies have certainly helped, he has much more work to do before border security ceases to be a problem. The third world continues to flood across the U.S. border, empowered by funding from NGOs bankrolled by George Soros, and it is putting the future of America into serious peril.

Biden DHS Secretary to Illegal Immigrants: “We’re Not Saying ‘Don’t Come,’ We’re Saying ‘Don’t Come Now'”

Did he just endorse illegal immigration?

Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, appeared at Monday’s White House press briefing to give an overview of what he and the DHS are doing to “replace the cruelty” of the Trump administration’s immigration processes and to take questions from reporters.

In response to a reporter’s question about how he was going to rebuild the DHS and reunite families, Mayorkas began by saying that they are “progressing every single day” on building a system to accept “asylum seekers”—read: illegal immigrants—through ports of entry.

We are progressing every single day. I don’t have a particular timeline, but all I can do is communicate, both to the American public and to the individuals seeking protection, that we are working around the clock seven days a week to make that timeframe as short as possible, but they need to wait. But they need to wait with a particular goal in mind. We are not saying ‘don’t come,’ we are saying ‘don’t come now,’ because we will be able to deliver a safe and orderly process to them as quickly as possible. There have been, I understand, approximately 105 families reunited in the recent past. That is through the extraordinary efforts of counsel and others in the community. We are joining with counsel, with members of the community to work on this.”

Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.
