Oregon Department of Corrections Report

November 20, 2014

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated October 1, 2014 DOC indicated there were 14,606 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s October 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,086 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,086 criminal aliens incarcerated on October 1st by DOC had United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), detainers. The U.S. DHS–ICE is responsible for identifying whether a DOC inmate is a criminal alien or a domestic inmate. If an inmate is identified as being a criminal alien, at U.S. DHS–ICE’s request, the DOC places an “ICE detainer” on the inmate that directs DOC officials to transfer custody to ICE following completion of the inmate’s state sanction.

Criminal aliens made up approximately 7.43% of the DOC October 1st prison population (See table).

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from October 1st 2007– 2014, seven years, the DOC prison population grew by 1,053 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 9.59% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,086 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 263-Marion (24.22%); 258-Multnomah (23.76%); 184-Washington (16.94%); 79-Clackamas (7.27%); 54-Lane (4.97%); 49-Jackson (4.51%); 29-Yamhill (2.67%); 26-Linn (2.39%); 19-Umatilla (1.75%); 17-Deschutes (1.56%); 15-Polk (1.38%); 14-Benton (1.29%); 12-Malheur (1.10%); 10-Lincoln (0.92%); 9-Jefferson (0.83%); 8-Klamath (0.74%); 7-Douglas (0.64%); 5-Josephine (0.46%); 5-Morrow (0.46%); 4-Coos (0.37%); 3-Clatsop (0.28%); 3-Hood River (0.28%); 3-Tillamook (0.28%); 3-Wasco (0.28%); 2-Crook (0.18%); 2-Union (0.18); 1-Columbia (0.09%); 1-Gilliam (0.09%); 1-OOS (0.09%); 0-Baker (0.00%); 0-Curry (0.00%); 0-Grant (0.00%); 0-Harney (0.00%); 0-Lake (0.00); 0-Sherman (0.00%); 0-Wallowa (0.00%); and 0-Wheeler (0.00%).

No member of the Oregon State Legislature should forget the uncounted crime victims and their families, no matter what their immigration status, all victims of the 1,086 criminal aliens incarcerated in DOC prisons.

A review of the 1,086 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 200-sex abuses (18.42%); 172-rapes (15.84%); 159-drugs (14.64%); 144-homicides (13.26%); 98-assaults (9.02%); 98-sodomies (9.02%); 66-robberies (6.08%); 42-kidnappings (3.87%); 21-burglaries (1.93%); 14-thefts (1.29%); 11-driving offenses (1.01%); 3-vehicle thefts (0.28%); 1-arsons (0.09%); 1-forgery (0.09%); and 56 other types of crime or a combination of the preceding crimes (5.16%).

Oregon State Legislators should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,086 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,086 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 873-Mexico (80.39%); 32-Guatemala (2.95%); 19-Vietnam (1.75%); 16-El Salvador (1.47%); 12-Cuba (1.10%); 11-Honduras (1.01%); 10-Russia (0.92%); 10-Ukraine (0.92%); 8-Federated States of Micronesia (0.74%); 6-Laos (0.55%); 6-Philippines (0.55%); and 83 from other counties (7.64%).

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens pose high economic cost on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($87.08) per day (See link).

http://www.oregon.gov/doc/GECO/docs/pdf/IB_53_Quick_Facts_06_14.pdf

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 1,086 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($94,568.88) per day, ($661,982.16) per week, and ($34,517,641.20) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2013 United States Federal Government State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $2,146,935.00, if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2014, the cost to incarcerate 1,086 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($32,370,706.20) (See link).

https://www.bja.gov/Funding/13SCAAPawards.pdf

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,086 criminal aliens include the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), court costs, nor cost estimates to cover victim assistance.

An unfortunate fact, the State of Oregon is not fully cooperating with the U.S. DHS–ICE to fight crime committed by criminal aliens who reside in Oregon. In year 2007, a United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) report titled “Cooperation of SCAAP (State Criminal Alien Assistance Program) Recipients in the Removal of Criminal Aliens from the United States, U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General Audit Division, Audit Report 07-07, October 2007, Redacted-Public Version” identified the State of Oregon as having an official “state sanctuary statute,” ORS 181.850 Enforcement of federal immigration laws (See link).

http://www.usdoj.gov/oig/reports/OJP/a0707/final.pdf

The USDOJ, the federal governments top law enforcement agency, identified Oregon as a “sanctuary” for criminal aliens. An Oregon law, Oregon Revised Statue 181.850 (ORS 181.850), Section (1), prohibits Oregon law enforcement (Oregon State Police (OSP), county sheriffs, city police departments) from asking immigration status of anyone residing in the State of Oregon “for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.” Under ORS 181.850, Section (2), Oregon law enforcement October exchange information with U.S. DHS–ICE . . . “in order to: Subsection (a), “Verify the immigration status of a person if the person is arrested for any criminal offense;” or, Subsection (b), “Request criminal investigation information with reference to persons named in records of the” U.S. DHS–ICE . . . (See link).

http://www.oregonlegislature.gov/bills_laws/lawsstatutes/2013ors181.html

The State of Oregon should no longer be classified by U.S. federal government law enforcement as having an official “state sanctuary statute” for criminal aliens, nor should Oregon be a sanctuary for criminal aliens to kill, rape, maim or abuse Oregonians.

Oregonians should contact their Oregon State Senator and Representative and ask them to reintroduce, support and pass legislation like HB 2803 (legislation offered during the 2011 session) during the next legislative session that would empower law enforcement to fight foreign national crime in the state.

The Oregon November 4, 2014 General Election should send a clear message to Governor John Kitzhaber, Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian and members of the Oregon State Legislature who supported Ballot Measure 88 (formerly known as Senate Bill 833) that a very strong majority of the state’s voters rejected the idea of the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) issuing driver cards to illegal immigrants — foreign nationals illegally in the state.

Oregon sheriffs oppose Ballot Measure 88

Oregon sheriffs oppose Ballot Measure 88

David Cross 9:04 p.m. PDT October 31, 2014

Oregon’s voters at the Nov. 4 general election will have a chance to vote on Senate Bill 833, which appears before them as Ballot Measure 88.

The passage of Ballot Measure 88 would require the Oregon DMV to grant to persons “who cannot prove legal presence in the United States” a special state-issued identification called a driver’s card.

In reaction to the state driver cards’ legislation, sheriffs across the state have stepped forward to oppose the ballot measure.

The Sheriffs of Oregon political action committee, representing the political and public safety concerns of state’s 36 county sheriffs, has come out in opposition to the legislation with the following statement: “The Sheriffs of Oregon support the citizens veto referendum #301 to overturn SB 833. We urge a NO vote.”

Tom Bergin, Clatsop County sheriff and past president of the Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association, made these statements on the driver cards’ legislation: “It is wrong to provide special driver’s licenses to people who cannot prove legal presence in the United States. For Oregon to do so, will only enhance the ability for criminal behavior, thus creating a larger risk to our citizens public safety.

The Sheriffs of Oregon urge you to oppose this measure.” Tim Mueller, former Linn County sheriff, expressed these thoughts on driver cards: “Giving a person a driver’s license who is in this country illegally is flat out irresponsible and does nothing to protect the citizens of this state.”

Oregon voters should heed the wisdom of Oregon’s sheriffs who have joined together with the citizens from Protect Oregon Driver Licenses to oppose driver cards for those “who cannot prove legal presence in the U.S.” and vote “no” on Ballot Measure 88.

Measure 88 hurts Oregon’s unemployed

Measure 88 hurts Oregon’s unemployed

By docfnc OregonLive.com on October 30, 2014 at 10:01 AM, updated October 30, 2014 at 11:02 AM

By David Olen Cross

Supporters of driver’s cards like Gov. John Kitzhaber, all the Democrats in the Oregon State Legislature and some agribusiness-service-sector Republicans turned a blind eye to the state’s unemployed in 2013 when they passed and signed into law Senate Bill 833 — now awaiting a decision by the state’s voters re-titled Ballot Measure 88.

An evaluation of the seasonally adjusted unemployment numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, News Release from October 21, 2014 titled “Regional and State Employment and Unemployment — September 2014” revealed the National unemployment rate at 5.9 percent — Oregon’s unemployment at 7.1 percent.

The State of Oregon Employment Department (DOE) report from October 20, 2104 indicated there were 119,815 unemployed in September in the state.

According to the “February 1, 2011 Pew Hispanic Center, Unauthorized Immigrant Population: National and State Trends, 2010” there are an estimated 110,000 unauthorized workers in Oregon.

With so many unemployed Oregon citizens looking for jobs and 110 thousand unauthorized workers currently holding the jobs many citizens across the state would do, Gov. Kitzhaber and far too many members of the state legislature seeking reelection in 2014 seem oblivious to the plight of the unemployed U.S. citizens and legal residents in this state.

The majority of Oregon counties, 33 of 36 counties (91.7 percent), in September had a higher unemployment rate than the national average of 5.9 percent. Here are the numbers and percentages of unemployed by county:

1. Multnomah — 23,550 unemployed — 6.1 percent;
2. Washington — 15,979 unemployed — 5.7 percent;
3. Clackamas — 11,355 unemployed — 6.2 percent;
4. Lane — 10,726 unemployed — 6.9 percent;
5. Marion — 9,779 unemployed — 7.4 percent;
6. Jackson — 7,179 unemployed — 8.6 percent;
7. Deschutes — 5,194 unemployed — 7.9 percent;
8. Linn — 3,966 unemployed — 8.4 percent;
9. Douglas — 3,640 unemployed — 9.7 percent;
10. Josephine — 2,792 unemployed — 9.6 percent;
11. Yamhill — 2,748 unemployed — 6.5 percent;
12. Umatilla — 2,383 unemployed — 7.5 percent;
13. Klamath — 2,267 unemployed — 9.7 percent;
14. Polk — 2,191 unemployed — 6.5 percent;
15. Benton — 2,157 unemployed — 5.5 percent;
16. Coos — 2,094 unemployed — 8.8 percent;
17. Columbia — 1,702 unemployed — 7.7 percent;
18. Lincoln — 1,403 unemployed — 7.6 percent;
19. Clatsop — 1,003 unemployed — 6.0 percent;
20. Curry — 766 unemployed — 10.5 percent;
21. Malheur — 826 unemployed — 8.6 percent;
22. Crook — 728 unemployed — 10.1 percent;
23. Union — 728 unemployed — 7.4 percent;
24. Wasco — 733 unemployed — 6.3 percent;
25. Jefferson — 691 unemployed — 9.3 percent;
26. Tillamook — 677 unemployed — 6.4 percent;
27. Hood River — 657 unemployed — 5.2 percent;
28. Baker — 458 unemployed — 8.5 percent;
29. Morrow — 331 unemployed — 7.9 percent;
30. Lake — 268 unemployed — 9.3 percent;
31. Grant — 245 unemployed — 11.1 percent;
32. Harney — 243 unemployed — 10.2 percent;
33. Wallowa — 215 unemployed — 8.9 percent;
34. Gilliam — 51 unemployed — 6.2 percent;
35. Sherman — 50 unemployed — 6.4 percent;
36. Wheeler — 40 unemployed — 7 .1 percent.

Crook, Curry, Grant, and Harney counties experienced double-digit unemployment.

One of the common defenses by proponents of Ballot Measure 88, driver cards for the foreign nationals illegally in the state, is illegal immigrants need to be able drive to work.
A reality check for proponents of driver cards, foreign nationals illegally in the country cannot legally work in the state.

Another argument of proponents of Measure 88 is Oregon U.S. citizens will not work at the jobs illegal immigrants now occupy. This argument is at best a half-truth; Oregon U.S. citizens have historically been more than willing to work in construction, forestry, hotels, and restaurants.

Interesting facts can be derived from analyzing U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDOA) unauthorized worker numbers and Pew Hispanic Center’s estimate of 110,000 unauthorized workers in the state.

Employment research done by USDOA estimates 48 percent of the 1.1 million farm workers in the country are unauthorized workers. Translating this percentage to PEW’s Oregon unauthorized worker number of 110,000 it is reasonable to estimate there are up to 52,880 unauthorized agricultural workers in the state.

Subtract the 52,880 unauthorized agricultural workers in the state from the overall number of 110,000 unauthorized workers in the state and one ends up with 57,200 unauthorized workers employed in non-agricultural jobs.

Oregon voter’s defeat of Ballot Measure 88 could literally help open up to 57,200 non-agricultural jobs to the state’s 119,815 unemployed, thus reducing the number of unemployed to 62,615; using the current DOE September numbers, the state could have a non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of just 3.2 percent.

Translation of the preceding blur of numbers, if illegal immigrants can’t legally drive in Oregon, can’t get driver cards, don’t have a state issued identification, they will be pried out of those non-agricultural jobs they currently occupy thus opening up those jobs to the state’s legal U.S. citizens and legal residents.

Oregon voters should send a message of support to the state’s 119,815 unemployed U.S. citizens and legal residents when they cast their ballots on or before Tuesday, November 4th by voting “No on Ballot Measure 88.”

Oregon Department of Corrections Report

Oregon Department of Corrections Report

October 24, 2014

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated September 2, 2014 DOC indicated there were 14,606 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s September 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,094 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,094 criminal aliens incarcerated on September 1st by DOC had United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), detainers. The U.S. DHS–ICE is responsible for identifying whether a DOC inmate is a criminal alien or a domestic inmate. If an inmate is identified as being a criminal alien, at U.S. DHS–ICE’s request, the DOC places an “ICE detainer” on the inmate that directs DOC officials to transfer custody to ICE following completion of the inmate’s state sanction.

Criminal aliens made up approximately 7.49% of the DOC September 1st prison population (See table).

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from September 1st 2008 – 2014, six years, the DOC prison population grew by 1,048 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 1.24% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,094 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 264-Marion (24.13%); 260-Multnomah (23.76%); 183-Washington (16.73%); 79-Clackamas (7.22%); 55-Lane (5.03%); 51-Jackson (4.66%); 29-Yamhill (2.65%); 26-Linn (2.38%); 19-Deschutes (1.74%); 18-Umatilla (1.64%); 15-Polk (1.37%); 14-Benton (1.28%); 12-Malheur (1.10%); 10-Lincoln (0.91%); 8-Jefferson (0.73%); 8-Klamath (0.73%); 7-Douglas (0.64%); 5-Josephine (0.46%); 5-Coos (0.46%); 5-Hood River (0.46%); 5-Morrow (0.46%); 3-Clatsop (0.27%); 3-Tillamook (0.27%); 3-Wasco (0.27%); 2-Crook (0.18%); 2-Union (0.18); 1-Columbia (0.09%); 1-Gilliam (0.09%); 1-OOS (0.09%); 0-Baker (0.00%); 0-Curry (0.00%); 0-Grant (0.00%); 0-Harney (0.00%); 0-Lake (0.00); 0-Sherman (0.00%); 0-Wallowa (0.00%); and 0-Wheeler (0.00%).

No member of the Oregon State Legislature should forget the uncounted crime victims and their families, no matter what their immigration status, all victims of the 1,094 criminal aliens incarcerated in DOC prisons.

A review of the 1,094 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 200-sex abuses (18.28%); 173-rapes (15.81%); 160-drugs (14.62%); 144-homicides (13.16%); 100-assaults (9.14%); 97-sodomies (8.87%); 67-robberies (6.12%); 42-kidnappings (3.84%); 24-burglaries (2.19%); 12-thefts (1.10%); 11-driving offenses (1.00%); 4-vehicle thefts (0.36%); 2-arsons (0.18%); 1-forgery (0.09%); and 57 other types of crime or a combination of the preceding crimes (5.21%).

Oregon State Legislators should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,094 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,094 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 882-Mexico (80.62%); 32-Guatemala (2.92%); 18-Vietnam (1.64%); 16-El Salvador (1.46%); 12-Cuba (1.10%); 11-Honduras (1.00%); 10-Russia (0.91%); 10-Ukraine (0.91%); 8-Federated States of Micronesia (0.73%); 7-Laos (0.64%); 6-Philippines (0.55%); and 82 from other counties (7.49%).

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens pose high economic cost on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($87.08) per day (See link).

http://www.oregon.gov/doc/GECO/docs/pdf/IB_53_Quick_Facts_06_14.pdf

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 1,094 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($95,265.52) per day, ($666,858.64) per week, and ($34,771,914.80) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2013 United States Federal Government State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $2,146,935.00, if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2014, the cost to incarcerate 1,094 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($32,624,979.80) (See link).

https://www.bja.gov/Funding/13SCAAPawards.pdf

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,094 criminal aliens include the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), court costs, nor cost estimates to cover victim assistance.

An unfortunate fact, the State of Oregon is not fully cooperating with the U.S. DHS–ICE to fight crime committed by criminal aliens who reside in Oregon.

In year 2007, a United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) report titled “Cooperation of SCAAP (State Criminal Alien Assistance Program) Recipients in the Removal of Criminal Aliens from the United States, U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General Audit Division, Audit Report 07-07, September 2007, Redacted-Public Version” identified the State of Oregon as having an official “state sanctuary statute,” ORS 181.850 Enforcement of federal immigration laws (See link).

http://www.usdoj.gov/oig/reports/OJP/a0707/final.pdf

The USDOJ, the federal governments top law enforcement agency, identified Oregon as a “sanctuary” for criminal aliens.

An Oregon law, Oregon Revised Statue 181.850 (ORS 181.850), Section (1), prohibits Oregon law enforcement (Oregon State Police (OSP), county sheriffs, city police departments) from asking immigration status of anyone residing in the State of Oregon “for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.” Under ORS 181.850, Section (2), Oregon law enforcement September exchange information with U.S. DHS–ICE . . . “in order to: Subsection (a), “Verify the immigration status of a person if the person is arrested for any criminal offense;” or, Subsection (b), “Request criminal investigation information with reference to persons named in records of the” U.S. DHS–ICE . . . (See link).

http://www.oregonlegislature.gov/bills_laws/lawsstatutes/2013ors181.html

The State of Oregon should no longer be classified by U.S. federal government law enforcement as having an official “state sanctuary statute” for criminal aliens, nor should Oregon be a sanctuary for criminal aliens to kill, rape, maim or abuse Oregonians.

Oregonians should contact their Oregon State Senator and Representative and ask them to reintroduce, support and pass legislation like HB 2803 (legislation offered during the 2011 session) during the next legislative session that would empower law enforcement to fight foreign national crime in the state.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

October 23, 2014

Lars:

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated September 2, 2014 DOC indicated there were 14,606 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s September 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,094 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,094 criminal aliens incarcerated on September 1st by DOC had United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), detainers. The U.S. DHS–ICE is responsible for identifying whether a DOC inmate is a criminal alien or a domestic inmate. If an inmate is identified as being a criminal alien, at U.S. DHS–ICE’s request, the DOC places an “ICE detainer” on the inmate that directs DOC officials to transfer custody to ICE following completion of the inmate’s state sanction.

Criminal aliens made up approximately 7.49% of the DOC September 1st prison population.

Comparing DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers from September 1, 2008 (1,081 criminal aliens) and September 1, 2014 (1,094 criminal aliens), the DOC prison system incarcerated 13 criminal aliens more than it did on September 1, 2008, a 1.20% increase.

When comparing DOC domestic criminal incarceration numbers from September 1, 2008 (12,477 domestic criminals) and September 1, 2014 (13,512 domestic criminals), the DOC prison system incarcerated 1,035 domestic criminals more than it did on September 1, 2008, an 8.29% increase.

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from September 1st 2008 – 2014, six years, the DOC prison population grew by 1,048 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 1.24% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,094 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 264-Marion (24.13%); 260-Multnomah (23.76%); 183-Washington (16.73%); 79-Clackamas (7.22%); 55-Lane (5.03%); 51-Jackson (4.66%); 29-Yamhill (2.65%); 26-Linn (2.38%); 19-Deschutes (1.74%); 18-Umatilla (1.64%); 15-Polk (1.37%); 14-Benton (1.28%); 12-Malheur (1.10%); 10-Lincoln (0.91%); 8-Jefferson (0.73%); 8-Klamath (0.73%); 7-Douglas (0.64%); 5-Josephine (0.46%); 5-Coos (0.46%); 5-Hood River (0.46%); 5-Morrow (0.46%); 3-Clatsop (0.27%); 3-Tillamook (0.27%); 3-Wasco (0.27%); 2-Crook (0.18%); 2-Union (0.18); 1-Columbia (0.09%); 1-Gilliam (0.09%); 1-OOS (0.09%); 0-Baker (0.00%); 0-Curry (0.00%); 0-Grant (0.00%); 0-Harney (0.00%); 0-Lake (0.00); 0-Sherman (0.00%); 0-Wallowa (0.00%); and 0-Wheeler (0.00%).

Your listeners should be aware of the types of crime committed against their fellow Oregonians by the 1,094 criminal aliens.

A review of the 1,094 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 200-sex abuses (18.28%); 173-rapes (15.81%); 160-drugs (14.62%); 144-homicides (13.16%); 100-assaults (9.14%); 97-sodomies (8.87%); 67-robberies (6.12%); 42-kidnappings (3.84%); 24-burglaries (2.19%); 12-thefts (1.10%); 11-driving offenses (1.00%); 4-vehicle thefts (0.36%); 2-arsons (0.18%); 1-forgery (0.09%); and 57 other types of crime or a combination of the preceding crimes (5.21%).

Listeners should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,094 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,094 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 882-Mexico (80.62%); 32-Guatemala (2.92%); 18-Vietnam (1.64%); 16-El Salvador (1.46%); 12-Cuba (1.10%); 11-Honduras (1.00%); 10-Russia (0.91%); 10-Ukraine (0.91%); 8-Federated States of Micronesia (0.73%); 7-Laos (0.64%); 6-Philippines (0.55%); and 82 from other counties (7.49%).

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens pose high economic cost on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($87.08) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 1,094 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($95,265.52) per day, ($666,858.64) per week, and ($34,771,914.80) per year.

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,094 criminal aliens include the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), court costs, nor cost estimates to cover victim assistance.

An unfortunate fact, the State of Oregon is not fully cooperating with the U.S. DHS–ICE to fight crime committed by criminal aliens who reside in Oregon.

The USDOJ, the federal governments top law enforcement agency, identified Oregon as a “sanctuary” for criminal aliens.

The State of Oregon should no longer be classified by U.S. federal government law enforcement as having an official “state sanctuary statute” for criminal aliens, nor should Oregon be a sanctuary for criminal aliens to kill, rape, maim or poison Oregonians.

Oregon voters before November 4th, during the 2014 General Election, should really examine the voting records of the politicians in this state who voted for Senate Bill 833, legislation that would grant driver cards to illegal aliens, because many of the preceding crimes committed by aliens could not have been committed by them without their access to drive motor vehicles.

Finally, the state’s voters should vote No on Ballot Measure 88 and replace the politicians who supported this anti public safety legislation.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

October 16, 2014

Who are members of the Oregon State Legislature that voted to give driver’s cards to the undocumented and to change the ballot title of what is now known as Ballot Measure 88?

Lars:

Smith, Greg (HD-57).

Oregonians who are registered voters, here is a political fact of life for the preceding members of the Oregon State Legislature who voted for SB 833, a vote to give the undocumented driver’s cards, many will have to face the state’s voters in the relatively near future; all state representatives every two years and half of the state senators every four years.

Here are two important facts Oregon registered voters should share with their legislators who voted for SB 833 in 2013, who are also seeking reelection in 2014:

First, more than 70,973 of the state’s registered voters (many of them legislators’ constituents) signed the referendum 301 petition to stop SB 833 from becoming state law on January 1, 2014.

Second, the undocumented of this state are not the registered voters during the 2014 election cycle who will be voting to return legislators to office that voted for SB 833.

A call to action, Oregon’s registered voters who didn’t like their state senator or representative voting for SB 833 or HB 4054 should contact those legislators and tell them to reject any future support for these types of  legislation (See link below to look up who represents you in the Oregon State Legislature).

Oregon State Senators: http://www.oregonlegislature.gov/senate/

Oregon voters should vote No on Ballot Measure 88 and replace the legislators who supported this anti public safety legislation (SB 833).
