(ConservativePeak.com)- According to new data from the Department of Justice, some 94% of all foreign nationals in American prisons is made up of illegal aliens who have either entered the United States illegally or overstayed their visas. It suggests that President Donald Trump’s comments during the 2016 and 2020 campaign trail, including the suggestion that many illegals are committing crimes in the United States, is true.
Every year the Justice Department releases new data, with the 2019 Fiscal Year report showing how almost all foreign nationals in the custody of the United States Marshals Service and Bureau of Prisons are illegals. 70% of these in prison custody and 39% in Marshals Service custody were also conceited of crimes that had zero connection to their immigration status and violations.
According to the data, over 51,000 foreign nationals were in prison by the end of the 2019 fiscal year, with 27,500 in prison custody and 23,580 in USMS custody.
President Donald Trump has maintained his strong line of illegal immigration into the United States, telling crowds recently that he would not give illegal aliens access to federal healthcare and other social security systems.

During a Democratic primary debate, Joe Biden raised his hand in agreement when all candidates were asked if they would support giving free healthcare to illegal aliens.
The DOJ data shows how 53% of foreign nationals in American federal prisons were ordered to be deported before they were sentenced to prison, and another 36% were being investigated by federal immigration officials.
The impact of criminal illegal aliens in terms of the safety of American citizens is significant, but so is the economic damage.
Breitbart reports that the average cost to American taxpayers to keep illegal aliens in prisons is $88.19 per prisoner per day. The number comes from data released by the DOJ, stating that the total detention housing costs increased by roughly 1.9%, from $159 million to $162 million.
