The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) provided data to ICE, which found that there are 45,493 foreign-born inmates, as of March 25. Of these foreign-born inmates just 3,939 — eight percent — are citizens, while nearly ninety percent of them, 41,554, are non-citizens.
The figures go on to show that 22,541, 54.2 percent, of these non-citizens have orders issued for their deportation. Using a cost estimate from Fiscal Year 2014, the U.S. will spend in 2017 an estimated $690 million housing illegal immigrant federal prisoners and an estimated $1.2 billion on non-citizen federal inmates in general.

HOW STRICT GUN CONTROL WORKS IN CHIRAQ
A manhunt is underway in Chicago after two on-duty police officers were shot and wounded by an at-large gunman who fired "indiscriminately" in what is thought to be a targeted attack, the Chicago Police Department said. The officers, both male, were conducting an investigation on the city's South Side when "one, possibly two vehicles, pulled alongside them and started firing indiscriminately at the officers," Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said during a press conference early Wednesday morning.

Ebony Magazine Editor: Hate Crimes Can’t Be Committed Against White People, Cops- “When we use a phrase like ‘hate crime,’ we’re typically referring to crimes against people of color, people of various religious groups, LGBT people, people who have been historically attacked, abused or disenfranchised on the basis of their identity. To now extend that to the majority group and a group of people that have a history with African-Americans that has been abusive, and we can apply that to either police officers or to Caucasians, I think gets into very tricky territory.”

A commentary carried by the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) referred to recent commentaries in China's People's Daily and Global Times newspapers, which it said were "widely known as media speaking for the official stand of the Chinese party and government."
"A string of absurd and reckless remarks are now heard from China every day only to render the present bad situation tenser," it said.
"China had better ponder over the grave consequences to be entailed by its reckless act of chopping down the pillar of the DPRK-China relations," the commentary said, referring to North Korea by the acronym for its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

School is no place for books, one Manhattan principal apparently believes. In a scene out of “Fahrenheit 451,” administrators at Life Sciences Secondary School have ordered all textbooks rounded up and removed — calling them “antiquated,” sources say. Principal Kim Swanson and Assistant Principal Derek Premo, who launched the ban, “really frown upon the use of books,” an insider told The Post. “They just took books that teachers have been using and not replaced anything.”

Far-right nationalist Marine Le Pen and independent centrist Emmanuel Macron came out swinging from the start of Wednesday's only televised head-to-head debate of the presidential election.
Le Pen immediately blasted Macron as a cold banker who would worsen unemployment and allow large industry and finance to plunder the economy. She called herself the "candidate of the people, of the France we love. "
Macron shot back that Le Pen lacked finesse and, for many years, has profited on the anger of the French people and promoted the "spirit of defeatism."
It's the last chance for either candidate to convince voters ahead of Sunday's election that they are qualified to lead a nation, which has become increasingly fractured over the current government's inability to cope with concerns around immigration, integration and an ailing economy.

Puerto Rico announced a historic restructuring of its public debt on Wednesday, touching off what may be the biggest bankruptcy ever in the $3.8 trillion U.S. municipal bond market.
While it was not immediately clear just how much of Puerto Rico's $70 billion of debt would be included in the bankruptcy filing, the case is sure to dwarf Detroit's insolvency in 2013.
The move comes a day after several major creditors sued Puerto Rico over defaults its bonds.
Bankruptcy may not immediately change the day-to-day lives of Puerto Rico's people, 45 percent of whom live in poverty, but it may lead to future cuts in pensions and worker benefits, and possibly a reduction in health and education services.
