Beyond the DOC Mexican national incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per type of crime, criminal aliens from Mexico place a substantial economic burden on Oregonians.

An individual inmate incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for 723 Mexican national inmates is approximately ($78,271.98) per day, ($547,903.86) per week, and ($28,569,272.70) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 723 Mexican national inmates includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.
