Immigration courts have authorized the deportation of approximately 12 percent of inmates now incarcerated with the Bureau of Prisons, according to figures released Tuesday by the Justice Department.

Of the approximately 189,000 federal inmates in BOP custody, the data shows 41,554 are foreign nationals and another 3,939 were foreign-born but became U.S. citizens. Of those, final deportation orders have been issued for 22,541 foreign-born inmates, so they will be deported from the country once they complete their prison sentences.
