DOJ finds that 64% of federal arrests were of non-citizens in 2018.
Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies told the Washington Examiner: “Experience has taught the immigration agencies and DOJ that this works to reduce recidivism — in other words, when illegal crossers face some more severe consequence than just being sent back home, they don’t keep doing it.”

Non-citizens made up 64% of all federal arrests in 2018 despite making up 7% of the U.S. population, according to Justice Department data released Thursday and reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation. Between 1998 and 2018, federal arrests of non-citizens grew by 234%, while federal arrest of U.S. citizens climbed 10%.
While the numbers provide credence to President Donald Trump’s argument that illegal immigration results in increased crime, immigration experts also pointed out that migrant apprehensions make up a significant portion of current federal arrests. More

Were they arrested because of racism or because they were low life criminal type who never should have been in America, to begin with?

This statistic all by itself should inform any sane US citizen that we have a serious problem.
Doing the crimes Americans won’t do.
