Portland Police Bureau Officer Thomas Layton Jeffries murdered by illegal alien in July 1997

September 18, 2018

On Sunday, July 20, 1997 Eufronio Hernandez-Hernandez (SID: 12371205; DOB: 06/08/1977) shot Portland Police Bureau (PPB) Officer Thomas Layton Jeffries, age 35. Officer Jeffries died from his injuries the next day on Monday, July 21, 1997.

Some background information on the shooting incident that took the life of Portland Police Bureau Officer Thomas Layton Jefferies:

Portland Police Bureau Officer Jefferies was killed in the line of duty while trying to arrest Eufronio Hernandez-Hernandez who was wanted in connection with shooting a seven year old child. PPB Officer Jefferies was backing up another police officer when Jefferies was shot as he exited his patrol car. Although mortally wounded, PPB Officer Jefferies was able return gun fire wounding Eufronio Hernandez-Hernandez in the leg.

Eufronio Hernandez-Hernandez’s case was prosecuted in Multnomah County, Oregon.

In late 1998 in a Multnomah County Circuit Court room Eufronio Hernandez-Hernandez was sentenced to life without parole in prison for the death of PPB Officer Thomas Layton Jefferies along with other crimes (three counts of Aggravated Murder, three counts of Attempted Murder and one count of Assault in the First Degree).

Currently Eufronio Hernandez-Hernandez is incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system at the Two Rivers Correctional Institution (TRCI) located near Umatilla, Oregon.

Wanting to know the actual current immigration status of Eufronio Hernandez-Hernandez, I contacted via e-mail on Friday, May 4, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Carissa Cutrell to investigate if Hernandez-Hernandez was illegally present in the United States of America when he murdered PPB Officer Jefferies.

On the afternoon of Wednesday, May 9, 2018 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer Carissa Cutrell had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Eufronio Hernandez-Hernandez:

“Here’s a statement from ICE.”

“In November 1998, the Immigration and Naturalization Service lodged a detainer with the Oregon Correctional Institute on Euphronio Hernandez-Hernandez, an illegally present citizen and national of Mexico, after he was convicted of multiple crimes, including aggravated murder, attempt to commit murder and assault in the first degree.” – Carissa Cutrell, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

“FOR BACKGROUND: In 2003, when the Department of Homeland Security was created, the Immigration and Naturalization Service and U.S. Customs Service merged to become U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Detainers lodged by the former INS are still valid under ICE.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Analysis of the preceding information:

The statement from ICE Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell reveals a significant fact about the immigration status of Eufronio Hernandez-Hernandez.

Euphronio Hernandez-Hernandez was a Mexican national illegally present in the United States of America on Sunday, July 20, 1997 when he shot and fatally wounded Portland Police Bureau Officer Thomas Layton Jeffries.

Mexican national Eufronio Hernandez-Hernandez on July 1, 2018 was one of the 136 criminal aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections prison system incarcerated for the crime of homicide.

Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter murdered by illegal alien in September 1992

Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter murdered by illegal alien in September 1992

September 16, 2018

On October 2, 1992 Francisco Manzo-Hernandez (SID: 6969819; DOB: 04/23/1964) was arrested by Oregon law enforcement near Klamath Falls for allegedly shooting to death of Oregon State Police (OSP) Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter, age 34, on September 30, 1992.

Just over two years after the shooting to death OSP Trooper Clodfelter, Francisco Manzo-Hernandez was sentenced on December 8, 1994 in a Klamath County Circuit Court jury trial to life in prison without parole.

Most recently Francisco Manzo-Hernandez has been incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution (EOCI) located near Pendleton, Oregon.

Some detailed background information:

On September 30, 1992 Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter stopped a car occupied by three men near Klamath Falls, Oregon. During the traffic stop OSP Trooper Clodfelter arrested the driver of the car for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII).

The two passengers in the car stopped by the OSP Trooper included Francisco Manzo-Hernandez and another man. Both men were intoxicated.

OSP Trooper Clodfelter, wanting to prevent Francisco Manzo-Hernandez or the other man from driving drunk, volunteered to drive the men home. The OSP Trooper frisked the two men before placing them in the back of his patrol car.

Tragically, OSP Trooper Clodfelter missed a 38 caliber handgun Francisco Manzo-Hernandez had hidden on his person.

Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter, while attempting to drive the two men home, was shot twice in the back of the head by Francisco Manzo-Hernandez.

Wanting to know the actual current immigration status of Francisco Manzo-Hernandez, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, April 30, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Carissa Cutrell to investigate if Manzo-Hernandez was illegally present in the United States of America when he murdered OSP Trooper Clodfelter.

On the morning of Thursday, May 3, 2018 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer Carissa Cutrell had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Francisco Manzo-Hernandez:

“Here’s a statement from ICE:”

“On March 31, 1997, the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) lodged a detainer with the Oregon Department of Corrections on Francisco Manzo-Hernandez, a citizen of Mexico illegally present in the U.S. The INS previously removed Manzo-Hernandez to Mexico in December 1991 through the Nogales, Arizona, border crossing.” – Carissa Cutrell, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

“ON BACKGROUND: In 2003, when the Department of Homeland Security was created, the Immigration and Naturalization Service and U.S. Customs Service merged to become U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Detainers lodged by the former INS are still valid under ICE.” – ICE Public Affairs

Analysis of the preceding information:

The statement from ICE Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell reveals considerable information about the immigration status of Francisco Manzo-Hernandez:

Francisco Manzo-Hernandez is a Mexican national illegally present in the United States who has been previously removed by the INS to Mexico in December of 1991.

On or after December of 1991 Francisco Manzo-Hernandez illegally reentered the U.S.

Approximately nine months after his removal from the country, illegal alien Francisco Manzo-Hernandez, shot to death Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter on September 30, 1992 after a traffic stop by the OSP Trooper.

Mexican national Francisco Manzo-Hernandez on July 1, 2018 was one of the 136 criminal aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections prison system incarcerated for the crime of homicide.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report August 2018

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report August 2018

September 10, 2018

By David Olen Cross

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nations boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is clearly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (Note: The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from August 25, 2018.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– México 22,527 inmates, 12.4 percent;
– Colombia 1,654 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,432 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,160 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 9,367 inmates, 5.1 percent;
– United States 146,243 inmates, 80.2 percent;

Total Inmates: 182,383 inmates.

To explain the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

Combining August 25th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 36,140 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 19.8 percent of the federal prison population; approximately two in every ten inmates were criminal aliens.

With 22,527 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 62.3 percent, they were the vast majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top five offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 11,336 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.7 percent of the federal prison population.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

August 30, 2018

Lars:

It has been an interesting last week in the month of August when it comes to criminal illegal aliens here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

This week we take a look at for your KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners a criminal illegal alien who was recently arrested in the State of Oregon for the deaths of two of the state’s residents.

On Sunday, August 19, 2018 members of the Salem Police Department responded to the location of a traffic accident on Highway 22/ Mission Street SE involving a pickup truck pulling a horse trailer and a motorcycle in Salem, Oregon.

The alleged driver of the pickup truck has been identified as Eduardo de la Lima Vargas, age 40, a resident of Hubbard, Oregon.

According to a Salem Police report, Eduardo de la Lima Vargas, operator of the pickup truck, ran a red light crashing into a motorcycle and critically injuring a male rider and female passenger. Both the man and woman were later declared deceased at Salem Health.

After the traffic accident, Eduardo de la Lima Vargas (SID: 13738050; DOB: 08/20/1978) was arrested by law enforcement and booked into the Marion County Correctional Facility (MCCF) on charges of two counts of Manslaughter in the First Degree, two counts of Reckless Endangering, one count Reckless Driving and one count of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII). Vargas’ bail has been set at $500,000.00.

Salem Police on Monday, August 20, 2018 identified the deceased rider and passenger of the motorcycle as being Logan Wilson, age 34, and Jessica Wilson, age 32, both residents of Salem, Oregon.

Eduardo de la Lima Vargas’ blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of the crash was determined to be .10 percent.

Wanting to know the actual immigration status of Eduardo de la Lima Vargas, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, August 20, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Western Region Communications Director (a) Lori K. Haley to investigate if Eduardo de la Lima Vargas was illegally present in the United States of America.

Approximately a four days later, on the afternoon of Friday, August 24, 2018 here is what ICE Western Region Communications Director (a) Lori K. Haley had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Eduardo de la Lima Vargas:

“Please see statement below in response to your query:”

“STATEMENT:

On August 23, 2018, ICE deportation officers lodged an immigration detainer with the Marion County Jail on Eduardo De la Lima Vargas, following his arrest for DUI resulting in death. Mr. De la Lima Vargas is a citizen of Mexico illegally residing in the United States.” – Lori K. Haley, ICE Western Region Communications Director (a).

“ON BACKGROUND:

Detainers serve as a legally authorized request, upon which a law enforcement agency may rely, to continue to maintain custody of an alien for up to 48 hours so that ICE may assume custody for removal purposes. Pursuant to ICE policy, all ICE detainers are submitted with an accompanying administrative arrest warrant or warrant of removal depending upon the circumstances of the individual case. ICE places immigration detainers when the agency possesses probable cause to believe an alien is deportable from the United States.

• The Marion County Jail does not honor any aspect of an ICE detainer, absent a criminal arrest warrant issued by a magistrate judge.

• There is no federal criminal charge for which to obtain a federal judicial arrest warrant for Mr. De la Lima Vargas. However, an administrative arrest warrant, the issuance of which is based on probable cause and issued in accordance with federal law and regulation, is a valid arrest warrant.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Analysis of the preceding information:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Western Region Communications Director (a) Lori K. Haley answered my question on whether or not Eduardo De la Lima Vargas was illegally present in the USA when he allegedly ran a red light while intoxicated that ultimately resulted in the killing of Logan and Jessica Wilson in this way:

“De la Lima Vargas is a citizen of Mexico illegally residing in the United States.” – Lori K. Haley, ICE Western Region Communications Director (a).

In an on background statement ICE Public Affairs’ answered my question about whether or not the Marion County Correctional Facility would honor an ICE detainer placed on Eduardo De la Lima Vargas while he was incarcerated at MCCF in this way:

“The Marion County Jail does not honor any aspect of an ICE detainer, absent a criminal arrest warrant issued by a magistrate judge.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Furthermore, ICE Public Affairs’ revealed in the same on background statement information on the crimes allegedly committed by Eduardo De la Lima Vargas:

“There is no federal criminal charge for which to obtain a federal judicial arrest warrant for Mr. De la Lima Vargas.” – ICE Public Affairs.

According to the ICE Public Affairs’ on background statement, the only legal tool that ICE has to deal with Eduardo De la Lima Vargas is an administrative arrest warrant:

“However, an administrative arrest warrant, the issuance of which is based on probable cause and issued in accordance with federal law and regulation, is a valid arrest warrant.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Summing up this report, Marion County Sheriff Jason Myers, the public official who is ultimately responsible for the procedures and policies of the MCCF, will not honor ICE detainers or grant access to ICE agents using an administrative arrest warrant to take custody of Eduardo De la Lima Vargas.

Lars, the last week of August and another criminal alien report for Lars Larson Show KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners.
