According to the United States Sentencing Commission (USSC), the nearly half of all federal crimes committed in 2018 were committed at the hands of non-U.S. citizens.
The report released by USSC shows that non-citizens committed 42.7 percent of all crimes last year:
According to a report by the Kaiser Family Foundation, non-citizens account for seven percent of the United States population. Not only does that mean that they were vastly overrepresented in the total amount of federal crimes committed, but they were also heavily overrepresented in several specific federal crimes.
They accounted for 48.4 percent of drug possession crimes, 24.5 percent of drug trafficking crimes, 18 percent of murders, and 27.2 percent of money laundering crimes.
Overall, the most heavily prosecuted federal crimes in the United States in 2018 were those pertaining to immigration, at a staggering 34.4 percent, according to the report. The second most prosecuted federal crime per the report was drug crime, accounting for 28.1 percent.
“Immigration cases accounted for the largest single group of offenses in fiscal year 2018, comprising 34.4% of all reported cases,” the report said. “Cases involving drugs, firearms, and fraud were the next most common types of offenses after immigration cases. Together these four types of offenses accounted for 82.9 percent of all cases reported to the commission in fiscal year 2018.”
According to the breakdown, non-U.S. citizens made up 91.5 percent of the immigration crimes. Some immigration crimes, like fraudulent “green card marriages,” can be committed by U.S. citizens.
The report, which was sent as a memorandum to members of Congress, comes in the midst of gridlock in Washington, D.C. on the issue of border security.
Big League Politics reported:
President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.

Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June
They’re infiltrating the borders again.
Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.
Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.”
Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.
Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
