U.S. Government To Deport Over 20,000 Illegal Immigrant Prisoners

Department of Justice is about to purge the Federal Bureau of Prisons of illegal immigrant inmates and save taxpayers money.

Here’s more from the DailyCaller.com

Overall, there are 45,493 foreign-born inmates in the federal system, of which 41,554 are non-citizens.

DOJ says 54 percent of those non-citizen inmates have been issued final orders of removal. In other words, federal authorities could reduce the prison population by 22,541 prisoners — immediately — if they had the ability to deport those aliens all at once.

The average annual cost of incarcerating a single federal prisoner is about $32,000, according to a Bureau of Prisons report.

In addition to the 54 percent of alien prisoners who have been issued orders of removal, another 33 percent — 13,886 inmates — are under ICE investigation for possible deportation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has made the expedited removal of criminal aliens from the prison system a DOJ priority.
