Table 41. Aliens Removed by Criminal Status and Region and Country of Nationality: Fiscal Year 2019

The 2019 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics is a compendium of tables that provide data on foreign nationals who are granted lawful permanent residence (i.e., immigrants who receive a “green card”), admitted as temporary nonimmigrants, granted asylum or refugee status, or are naturalized. The Yearbook also presents data on immigration enforcement actions, including apprehensions and arrests, removals, and returns.

D Data withheld to limit disclosure.
- Represents zero.
1 Refers to persons who have a prior criminal conviction. In 2017, OIS started aligning with ERO’s methodology in identifying criminals within the ERO administrative arrest data, one that is no longer solely based on criminal conviction.
2 Includes countries with fewer than 10 aliens removed per year.
Notes: Beginning in 2008, excludes criminals removed by CBP; CBP ENFORCE does not identify if aliens removed were criminals. Data are current as of October 2019.
