Arizona U.S. Attorney’s Report: 73 Percent of Illegal Aliens Arrested for Reentry Have Criminal Records in U.S


A shocking report released by the U.S. District Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona shows that 73 percent of illegal aliens who were arrested for illegal reentry into the United States in June have prior criminal records here.

According to the report, “241 individuals were charged in June with illegal reentry,” and “178 of those 241 individuals had previously been convicted of non-immigration criminal offenses in the U.S.”

Of the 178 arrestees, 40 had a violent criminal history in the United States, including six illegal aliens with prior homicide convictions, eight illegal aliens with prior sex offense convictions, and six illegal aliens with prior domestic violence convictions.

Ten more of the arrestees had prior property crime convictions, while 36 had DUI convictions, and 90 had drug crime convictions.

The report also noted that “108 of those 241 individuals had been deported three or more times.”

The report also said the data only includes those illegal aliens who had been referred for criminal prosecution for illegal reentry, meaning that more illegal aliens with prior convictions may simply have been turned away at the border.

“These numbers represent United States Attorney’s Office prosecutions only,” the report said. “These numbers do not include individuals apprehended by immigration enforcement officials and subjected solely to administrative process.”

Earlier this week, The Arizona Sun Times reported that between July 23 and July 30, U.S. Border Patrol Tucson Sector arrested five illegal aliens for illegal reentry who had previous sex crimes convictions in the United States. Four of those men had been convicted specifically of sex crimes against children.

Of the four men convicted of sex crimes against children, three were Mexican nationals and one was a Guatemalan national.

The flood of illegal aliens into the United States continues to nag the Biden Administration, which has welcomed illegal alien crossings with open arms.

Newsweek reported this week that the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year alone would be enough to create the tenth-largest city in the United States.
