GAO: Criminal Aliens Continue to Burden Taxpayers
On Thursday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report detailing the fiscal and
social costs that criminal aliens bear on the American people. (GAO-11-187, Mar. 2011) According
to the report, the federal government spent at least $1.5 to $1.6 billion annually from fiscal years
2005 to 2009 to incarcerate criminal aliens. (Id. at 34) Criminal aliens are aliens who are in the U.S.
legally or illegally and have been convicted of a crime.
The GAO’s cost estimate, however, is substantially lower than the
actual costs of incarceration to taxpayers because data limitations only allowed GAO to incorporate a portion of the state and local costs. That is, because the GAO found that there was no reliable data on the number and costs of all criminal aliens in state and local jails, the GAO used a number it felt was reliable: state and local incarceration costs reimbursed by the federal government through the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP). However, it is important to note that SCAAP reimbursements to state and local governments cover only a fraction of the full costs to state and local governments. This is because: 1) SCAAP does not reimburse state and locals for criminal aliens with lawful status (i.e. legal aliens who are convicted of a crime); and 2) SCAAP only reimburses state and locals for criminal illegal aliens meeting certain criteria. (Id. at 1-2) Even then, SCAAP may not pay for the incarceration of all eligible criminal aliens. For example, in California alone in 2008, the total estimated cost of incarcerating SCAAP aliens was over $1 billion, yet SCAAP only reimbursed percent (from 146,327 to 204,136). (Id. at 10) Signifithe state $112 million. (Id. at 41)
The GAO also found that from 2003 to 2009, the cost of SCAAP criminal aliens to state prisons increased by 25 percent (from 73,751 to 91,823) and their burden on local jails increased by 40 cantly, the report revealed that six states—all of which have a substantial illegal alien population—bear nearly 70 percent of the costs of incarcerating criminal aliens. (Id. at 11-12) These states include Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, New York, and Texas. (Id. at 12)
Other key findings of the report include:
States were only reimbursed for 23% of the cost of incarcerating criminal aliens. (Id. at 37)
50% of the criminal aliens in the GAO’s study population were arrested at least once for homicide, a sex offense, kidnapping, robbery, or assault. (Id. at 19)
65% of criminal aliens in the GAO’s study population were arrested at least once for an immigration violation. (Id.)
As of 2009, Mexico is the country of birth of 70% of SCAAP criminal aliens (again, only a fraction of criminal aliens) in local jails and 66% of SCAAP criminal aliens in state prisons. (Id. at 13-15)
The GAO report was requested by House Immigration Subcommittee Vice-Chairman, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who used the report’s findings to renew his call to complete the border fence. In a statement, Rep. King said that the GAO’s findings “prov[e] that we have to secure our southern border with a fence, a wall, and a fence. That would drastically reduce the ability of criminal aliens to enter the United States, providing needed relief to overburdened state prison systems and to taxpayers.” (Rep. Steven King Press Release, Apr. 21, 2011) He continued, “We also have to do a better job of removing criminal aliens who are apprehended, and of preventing the re-entry into the country of those who are removed.” (Id.)
“The Obama Administration seems to be heeding to Mexico’s request by openly halting the deportation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. Additionally, the administration has a “backdoor amnesty” plan to legalize millions of undocumented aliens in case Congress doesn’t pass legislation to do it.”
Mexico Asks U.S. To Stop Deporting Serious Criminals

Mexico Asks U.S. To Stop Deporting Serious Criminals
In a flabbergasting request, a coalition of Mexican lawmakers has asked the United States to stop deporting illegal immigrants who have been convicted of serious crimes in American courts.
The preposterous demand was made at a recent southern California conference in which the mayors of four Mexican cities that border the U.S. gathered to discuss cross-border issues. The only American mayor who attended the biannual event was San Diego’s Jerry Sanders, evidently because his city hosted it this year at a fancy downtown hotel.
Among the cross-border topics that were addressed at the conference was the deportation of Mexican citizens who have committed violent crimes in the U.S. The felons are persona non grata in their communities, say the mayors of Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez, Nogales and Nuevo Laredo. They want U.S. officials to stem the deportation of such convicts to their cities, according to a local newspaper report that covered the conference.
To support the request, the mayor (Jose Reyes Ferriz) of Mexico’s most violent city, Ciudad Juarez, pointed out that of 80,000 people deported to his community in the past three years nearly 30,000 had committed serious crimes in the U.S. Around 7,000 had served sentences for rape and 2,000 for murder. The criminal deportees have contributed to the escalating drug-cartel violence in his city, Mayor Ferriz said, so he wants the U.S. to make other arrangements when prison sentences are completed.
If this seems unbelievable, consider that a few years ago Mexico’s government formally complained that too many Mexicans had been repatriated from the U.S. and that the entire country was overwhelmed with demands for housing, jobs and schools. Various Mexican legislators publicly chastised the U.S. for sending illegal immigrants back, explaining that the country could not accommodate the “repatriated.”
The Obama Administration seems to be heeding to Mexico’s request by openly halting the deportation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. Additionally, the administration has a “backdoor amnesty” plan to legalize millions of undocumented aliens in case Congress doesn’t pass legislation to do it.

U.S. Spending At Least $18.6 Million Per Day to Incarcerate Illegal Aliens; More Than 195,000 Illegal Aliens Deported in Fiscal 2010 Had Committed Crimes Here
Friday, October 08, 2010
By Edwin Mora
More than 11,000 gang members and their associates have been arrested over a three-year period thanks to a crackdown in immigration enforcement by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
(CNSNews.com) – U.S. taxpayers are spending at least $18.6 million per day to house an estimated 300,000 to 450,000 illegal immigrants who are incarcerated and eligible for deportation from the United States, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ).
The cost per day for these prisoners is based on Justice Department incarceration cost estimates from 2001 and on the lower-end figure of 300,000 incarcerated deportable aliens, which means the actual expense today could be substantially higher than $18.6 million per day.
The prisoners involved here are foreign national who have come into the United States, committed a crime, been captured, and imprisoned.
Half of the undocumented aliens who were removed from the United States in fiscal 2010 (which ended on Sept. 30) had been convicted of a crime in the United States.
On Wednesday, the office of the DHS Inspector General (IG) released its annual performance plan report for fiscal year 2011, which states that there are “approximately 300,000 to 450,000 criminal aliens incarcerated in federal, state, county, and local correctional facilities [who] are eligible for removal from the United States.”
In its March 2010 report, "Immigration Enforcement Actions: 2009," the DHS defines removal as "the compulsory and confirmed movement of an inadmissible or deportable alien out of the United States based on an order of removal. An alien who is removed has administrative or criminal consequences placed on subsequent reentry owing to the fact of the removal."
Kara McCarthy, a spokeswoman at the DOJ, told CNSNews.com that the latest data available show that “average annual operating costs per state inmate for Fiscal Year 2001 was $22,650; in the Federal Bureau of Prisons it was $22,632.”
These annual operation costs exclude “capital expenditures, juvenile corrections, probation, parole, and most central office functions of corrections spending,” McCarthy told CNSNews.com
The cost of $22,650 per year to house just one inmate at the state level equals about $62 a day ($22,650 divided by 365 days). In the Federal Bureau of Prisons, it also averages out to $62 per day ($22,632 divided by 365 days).
Given this daily average expense (based on fiscal year 2001 costs), it can be estimated that the cost of housing 300,000 incarcerated illegal aliens in U.S. prisons would equal $18.6 million per day; the cost for housing 450,000 incarcerated illegal aliens would equal $27.9 million per day. If inflation in prison costs since 2001 were factored in, the expense would be even greater.
When CNSNews.com asked why incarcerated aliens who are eligible for removal have not been deported, a DHS spokesperson said, “It is because they are still serving their criminal sentence. ICE does not receive criminal aliens from state criminal justice systems until after they have completed their sentences.” (ICE is the acronym for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.)
On the same day the IG’s office released its performance plan report, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano and ICE Director John Morton announced that half of the undocumented aliens who were removed from the United States in fiscal year 2010, which ended on Sept. 30, were convicted criminals.
“In fiscal year 2010, ICE set a record for overall removals of illegal aliens, with more than 392,000 removals nationwide,” says an Oct. 6 press release from the DHS. “Half of those removed--more than 195,000--were convicted criminals.”
“The fiscal year 2010 statistics represent increases of more than 23,000 removals overall and 81,000 criminal removals compared to fiscal year 2008--a more than 70 percent increase in removal of criminal aliens from the previous administration,” added the release.
It is uncertain whether the IG office’s estimate of 300,000 to 450,000 incarcerated criminal aliens who are eligible for removal takes into account the 195,000 criminal aliens removed in fiscal 2010. The IG office did not respond to CNSNews.com for a clarification on this point before this story was posted.
Nevertheless, the DHS did not deport all of the criminal illegal aliens who are eligible for removal and are currently sitting in U.S. correctional facilities.
The DOJ spokeswoman told CNSNews.com that, according to its latest figures, “In 2008 there were 785,556 inmates in the nation's [local and county] jails and 1,518,559 inmates in state and federal prisons.” That equals 2,304,115 inmates in total in the United States.
Given those numbers, 300,000 incarcerated criminal aliens would equal 13 percent of the entire inmate population of the United States, while 450,000 incarcerated criminal aliens would equal 19.5 percent of the entire inmate population.
According to the IG report from DHS, “The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires ICE to initiate deportation proceedings for incarcerated criminal aliens as expeditiously as possible after the date of conviction. Criminal aliens who are eligible for deportation include illegal aliens in the United States who are convicted of any crime and lawful permanent residents who are convicted of a removable offense as defined in the Immigration and Nationality Act.
