Approximately 10 percent of inmates in the Federal Bureau of Prisons are foreign-born nationals slated for deportation, according to government data released Tuesday afternoon.
New information from the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security show 42,034 people of the total 187,855 prisoners in federal prison are not U.S. citizens.
Approximately 19,750 inmates are aliens who have received final orders for removal and another 21,121 inmates are aliens who are under investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for possible removal.
Only 1,157 inmates are aliens whose cases are pending adjudication before an immigration judge. Seven inmates were granted relief from deportation orders.
The information was published in response to President Trump's executive order on public safety in the interior of the U.S., which mandates releasing data every quarter.
