Noncitizens in the Federal Criminal Justice System, 1984-94 - Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report   [open pdf - 192KB]

"The number of noncitizens processed in the Federal 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. Since 1989 the number has remained fairly stable. In contrast to the substantial increase in the number of noncitizens prosecuted, the overall Federal criminal caseload increased at a much slower rate between 1984 and 1994 - an average of less than 2% annually. During 1984 approximately 49,000 defendants were prosecuted in U.S. district courts; during 1994 approximately 59,000 were prosecuted."
