There are more than 45,000 foreign-born criminals sitting in federal prisons, according to data released by the Department of Justice (DOJ).
In a new report by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, 45,493 foreign-born convicted criminals were found to be in federal U.S. prisons, with the vast majority being illegal aliens. In total, there are roughly 190,000 inmates in federal prisons, reported Breitbart.
Of the 45,493 foreign-born inmates, only 3,939 were U.S. citizens, while the majority, 41,528 inmates, were illegal aliens.
More than 54 percent of the 41,528 illegal alien inmates have already been issued deportation orders. Another 33.4 percent of those inmates are under investigation and could be deported.
