WaTimes: Immigrants are 22 percent of federal prison population - MSM's insistence on calling illegals "immigrants" confuses this story --tma
A stunning 22 percent of the federal prison population is immigrants who have either already been deemed to be in the country illegally or who the government is looking to put in deportation proceedings, the administration said Tuesday.
President Trump requested the numbers as part of his initial immigration executive orders.
The 22 percent is much higher than the population of foreign-born in the U.S. as a whole, which is about 13.5 percent.
All told, the government counted more than 42,000 aliens in federal prisons as of June 24.
About 47 percent already face final deportation orders, making them illegal immigrants, and 3 percent are currently in immigration courts facing deportation proceedings. ..
