Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

July 17, 2014

Lars:

It has been an interesting second full week in the month of July when it comes to foreign national crime here in the State of Oregon.

This week we look at Oregonians’ reaction to what can best be described as an invasion of 52,000 plus illegal immigrants and more to come from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador that are showing up on the United States Southern border with Mexico.

Concerned Oregonians across the state have filled regional and local newspapers with letters to the editor responding to the invasion of the American homeland — they should continue to use the hardcopy and electronic media as a means of protest to expose the failure of President Obama and Congress to protect our country’s borders.

Here are titles and links to some of the best letters in order chronologically in which they appeared in newspapers across the state over the last couple weeks (See links):

Beyond writing a letter to the editor, here is what listeners can do in reaction to President Obama and Congress’ unwillingness to seal America’s border with Mexico.

A series of public protests will be held across Oregon this weekend in reaction to the current invasion of illegal aliens from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

Members of Oregonians for Immigration Reform will be protesting the current immigration crisis on Saturday, July 19, 2014 in Salem, Oregon (See link for more information on how you can participate).

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

July 10, 2014

Lars:

It has been an interesting first full week in the month of July when it comes to foreign national crime here in the State of Oregon.

This week we reach beyond the State of Oregon into the heart of the Country of Mexico to examine how up to 52 thousand very young illegal immigrants from countries as far away as Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are showing up on the United States Southern border with Mexico.

After researching the topic of how these young illegal immigrants are showing up on America’s border with Mexico, I discovered that these foreign nationals seeking to illegally enter the United States are riding freight trains.

Multiple news sources have reported these young illegal immigrants are using the freight trains operated by two multi-national publically traded companies, Kansas City Southern (KCS) and Ferrosur’s (A railway subsidiary of GrupoMexico, a mining and railroad conglomerate), to get to the U.S. border with Mexico.

I placed the following question via e-mail to KCS company public and governmental relations officials in the United States and Mexico:

What is Kansas City Southern doing to keep illegal immigrants from Central America from riding the company’s Mexican subsidiary Kansas City Southern de Mexico’s freight trains from Southern Mexico to the United States border with that country?

Earlier today, I received from a KCS official what can best be described as a declaimer statement on what the company is doing in conjunction with federal government immigration officials in both countries to keep illegal immigrants off company trains traversing Mexico.

Some fast facts:

- On June 1, 2014 the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system incarcerated 1,121 criminal aliens (prisoners with immigration detainers).

- Four countries made up the majority of foreign nationals incarcerated by number and percentage in the DOC prison system: 907 Mexicans, 80.91 percent; 32 Guatemalans, 2.85 percent; 15 Salvadorans, 1.34 percent; and 11 Hondurans, 0.98 percent.

- The preceding counties combined accounted for 86.10 percent of the foreign nationals in the state’s prison system.

Oregon Department of Corrections Report

Oregon Department of Corrections Report

June 30, 2014

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated June 1, 2014 DOC indicated there were 14,652 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s June 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,121 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,121 criminal aliens incarcerated on June 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 indentifying 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 7.65% of the DOC June 1st prison population (See table).

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from June 1st 2008 – 2014, six years, the DOC prison population grew by 1,063 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 6.40% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,121 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%); 15-Benton (1.34%); 76-Clackamas (6.78%); 5-Clatsop (0.45%); 1-Columbia (0.09%); 5-Coos (0.45%); 2-Crook (0.18%); 0-Curry (0.00%); 18-Deschutes (1.60%); 5-Douglas (0.45%); 1-Gilliam (0.09%); 0-Grant (0.00%); 0-Harney (0.00%); 5-Hood River (0.45%); 49-Jackson (4.37%); 9-Jefferson (0.80%); 6-Josephine (0.53%); 8-Klamath (0.71%); 0-Lake (0.00); 56-Lane (4.99%); 9-Lincoln (0.80%); 27-Linn (2.41%); 12-Malheur (1.07%); 266-Marion (23.73%); 4-Morrow (0.36%); 276-Multnomah (24.62%); 1-OOS (0.09%); 16-Polk (1.43%); 0-Sherman (0.00%); 3-Tillamook (0.27%); 18-Umatilla (1.60%); 3-Union (0.27); 0-Wallowa (0.00%); 3-Wasco (0.27%); 192-Washington (17.13%); 0-Wheeler (0.00%); and 30-Yamhill (2.68%).

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 1,121 criminal aliens incarcerated in DOC prisons.

A review of the 1,121 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 2-arsons (0.18%); 104-assaults (9.28%); 24-burglaries (2.14%); 13-driving offenses (1.16%); 171-drugs (15.25%); 0-escape (0.00%); 2-forgeries (0.18%); 146-homicides (13.02%); 45-kidnappings (4.01%); 57-others (5.08%); 173-rapes (15.43%); 69-robberies (6.15%); 205-sex abuses (18.29%); 93-sodomies (8.30%); 12-thefts (1.07%); and 5-vehicle thefts (0.45%).

Oregon State Legislators should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,121 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,121 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 11-Cuba (0.98%); 15-El Salvador (1.34%); 7-Federated States of Micronesia (0.62%); 32-Guatemala (2.85%); 11-Honduras (0.98%); 7-Laos (0.62%); 907-Mexico (80.91%); 86-others (7.67%); 6-Philippines (0.53%); 9-Russia (0.80%); 12-Ukraine (1.07%); and 18-Vietnam (1.60%).

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 cost to incarcerate a prisoner increased ($2.27) per day in June 2014, a 2.67% increase from 2013’s cost of ($84.81) 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 1,121 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($97,616.68) per day, ($683,316.76) per week, and ($35,630,088.20) 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 1,121 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($33,483,153.20) (See link).

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

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,121 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, June 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 June 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.

Mexican cartels turn state into a lethal drug den

Guest commentary: Mexican cartels turn state into a lethal drug den

Oregon DOC must re-examine how it deals with drugs in order to best protect its citizens

Posted: Sunday, June 29, 2014 12:00 am

By DAVID OLEN CROSS Guest Writer Herald and News

Continuing the trend, most of the illicit drugs killing Oregonians are produced, manufactured and smuggled into the state by drug cartels operating out of Mexico.

On April 24, the Oregon Medical Examiner (OME) reported 222 drug related deaths in 2013 were caused by the illicit drugs. The types of drugs by the numbers that killed 222 of the state’s residents last year were 123 deaths from methamphetamine, 111 deaths from heroin, 12 deaths from cocaine or 26 deaths from a combination of the preceding drugs.

Twenty-three of the state’s 36 counties had at least one death from illicit drugs in 2013.

Klamath County had two drug related deaths last year from methamphetamine.

Adding up OME report numbers from 2006-2013 there were 1,752 illicit drug related deaths that occurred in the state:

■ 2006 OME report 213 deaths from illicit drugs.
■ 2007 OME report 212 deaths from illicit drugs.
■ 2008 OME report 229 deaths from illicit drugs.
■ 2009 OME report 213 deaths from illicit drugs.
■ 2010 OME report 200 deaths from illicit drugs.
■ 2011 OME report 240 deaths from illicit drugs.
■ 2012 OME report 223 deaths from illicit drugs.
■ 2013 OME report 222 deaths from illicit drugs.

Analyzing eight years of OME reports revealed there were 944 deaths from heroin, 785 deaths from methamphetamine, 293 deaths from cocaine or 268 deaths from a combination of drugs.

Moving beyond the preceding OME reports’ body counts, a look at the current Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison population gives a picture of who is most likely dealing the drugs killing the state’s residents.

On April 1 in the DOC prison system, there were 177 foreign nationals (prisoners with immigration detainers) incarcerated for drug crimes, 159 of those prisoners declared their country of origin being Mexico, that’s almost 90 percent of the foreign nationals in prison for drug crimes.

Most Oregonians are well enough informed from news reports to know the majority of illicit drugs that originated in Mexico are injected into the state up Interstate 5, Highway 97 or down Interstate 84 hidden in the bowels of cars, SUVs and trucks.

The cartels’ drug mules and dealers who operate motor vehicles bringing drugs into the state or distributing drugs across state lines need some form of identification like an Oregon Divers License or Drivers Card to move around. In that way, they are unhindered by the possibility that a minor automobile accident or traffic citation could bring to light their criminal activities to law enforcement authorities.

Senate Bill 833, Drivers Card legislation passed during the 2013 Oregon State Legislature legislative session, could literally give the cartel members operating motor vehicles in this state a get-out-of- jail-free-card because law enforcement authorities may simply not have probable cause to search their vehicles unless a serious automobile accident or traffic violation has occurred.

One common-sense solution to reduce future drug deaths in Oregon, which is now literally a drug den of death, is to make it more difficult for Mexican drug cartel operatives to access licenses.

Oregon’s registered voters will have the opportunity in the 2014 November General Election, less than five months from now, to put the brakes on Mexican drug cartels’ ability to distribute drugs in this state by voting “No on Referendum 301” — thus sending Senate Bill 833’s driver cards for those who cannot prove legal presence in the United States into the archives of bad legislative history.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

June 26, 2014

Lars:

It has been an interesting last full week in the month of June when it comes to criminal aliens here in the State of Oregon.

This week we put another face to alien crime in the state for your radio listeners — criminal aliens who illegally re-enter the country.

Thursday, June 19, 2014 a West Linn Police patrol officer stopped Victor Ozuna Bernal, age 35, in Wilsonville, Oregon for an alleged traffic violation. During a computer check, the patrol officer discovered the man he had stopped had been previously deported.

A search of court records revealed that Ozuna Bernal had been convicted and sent to prison in Nebraska in 2007 for sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl. The consequences of his crime made him a criminal alien sex-offender; after completing his prison sentence he was deported to Mexico in 2012.

The officer arrested Victor Ozuna Bernal for failing to register as a sex-offender. He was taken to the Clackamas County Jail where jail officials then contacted Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

Apparently ICE officials have begun deportation proceedings to remove him from the country.

Sergeant Dan Kraus, the West Linn Police Public Information Officer (PIO), made the following statement about the criminal alien sex-offender’s arrest: “We don’t know how he got back into the U.S.”

Lars Larson Show listeners know one thing for sure about this criminal illegally alien invader; he didn’t walk from Mexico to West Linn, Oregon; a distance of more than 1,500 miles.

Some fast facts:

- On May 1, 2014 the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system incarcerated 1,133 criminal aliens (prisoners with immigration detainers); 207 of those alien prisoners (18.27 percent) were serving time for sex abuse;

- There were 179 Mexican nationals in the DOC prison system incarcerated for sex abuse; they accounted for 86.47 percent of the alien prison population incarcerated for sex abuse.
