DOJ/DHS report: One in five federal prisoners is foreign-born

There were a total of 183,058 prisoners in Bureau of Prisons custody as of Dec. 31, 2017, according to the government’s quarterly assessment. Of those, 38,132 — or 21 percent — were known or suspected aliens. Nearly two-thirds of that foreign-born prison population did not have lawful immigration status, the DOJ/DHS report stated.
