U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement both caught more criminals who pled guilty or were found guilty in federal district courts in the last fiscal year on record than did the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to the latest U.S. Attorneys’ Annual Statistical Report.
In fiscal 2016, according to data published in Table 3D of the report, 66,670 criminals either pleaded guilty or were found guilty in U.S. District Courts.
CBP had referred 14,869 of these convicted criminals to U.S. attorneys. That was more than any other federal agency.
ICE had referred 10,608. That ranked it second only to CBP.
The FBI ranked third, having referred 10,318 of the defendants who pleaded guilty or were found guilty in a U.S. District Court in fiscal 2016.
