SHOCK: Report Shows Almost HALF of All Federal Crimes Committed by Non-Citizens in 2018

Non-citizens commit a hugely disproportionate amount of federal crimes, according to new government report.

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.

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.
