May.20.– As the illegal alien crisis along the southern border worsens, distressing government figures show that nearly half of all federal crimes in the United States are perpetrated by foreigners who are not American citizens and that immigration cases account for the largest single type of offense. Non-U.S. citizens committed 42.7% of all federal crimes in 2018, according to a report issued by the United States Sentencing Commission, the independent agency created by Congress decades ago to reduce sentencing disparities and promote transparency and proportionality in sentencing.
The document also reveals that 54.3% of the 69,425 federal offenders last year were Hispanic. “Immigration cases accounted for the largest single group of offenses in fiscal year 2018, comprising 34.4% of all reported cases,” the agency writes in its annual report to Congress. “Cases involving drugs, firearms, and fraud were the next most common types of offenses after immigration cases.

Hispanics were also charged with more drug possession crimes (389) last year than any other group. Not surprisingly, Hispanics also committed the overwhelming amount of immigration related crimes, according to the recently issued federal statistics. Of the 23,656 immigration offenses recorded last year, Hispanics accounted for 22,782. They also committed the most money laundering crimes (504) compared to whites (444) and blacks (236), the Sentencing Commission document shows.
