Noncitizens in the Federal Criminal Justice System, 1984-1994
John Scalia (au)
This report shows that the number of noncitizens processed in the Fed. criminal justice system increased an average 10% annually from 1984 to 1994. During 1984, 3,462 noncitizens were prosecuted in U.S. district courts; during 1994, more than 10,000 were prosecuted. The greatest part of this increase occurred between 1986 and 1989, when the number increased by almost 6,000. After 1989 the number remained fairly stable. In contrast to the substantial increase in the number of noncitizens prosecuted, the overall Fed. criminal caseload increased at a much slower rate between 1984 and 1994 -- an average of less than 2% annually. During 1984 approx. 49,000 defendants were prosecuted in U.S. district courts; during 1994 approx. 59,000 were prosecuted. The increase in the overall number of noncitizens prosecuted is primarily the result of the increase in the number of noncitizens charged with drug offenses -- particularly between 1986 and 1989. The number of noncitizens charged with a Fed. l drug offense increased at an average 13% annually from 1984 to 1994. During 1984, 1,204 noncitizens were charged with a drug offense; during 1994 more than 4,600 were charged with a drug offense. Noncitizens convicted of a Fed. drug offense were more likely than citizens to have played a minor role in the drug conspiracy. Figures.
