U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Aliens

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Aliens

December 7, 2016

By David Olen Cross

One of the detrimental impacts of having a significant foreign national population residing in the United States, be they legally or illegally present in the country, is crime.

The scope and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is virtually going almost unreported in mainstream news sources online, on television or in hardcopy newspapers.

For example, information on foreign national crime has been readily available to any mainstream news source that has the ability to do a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

Here is what a search of the U.S. BOP website reveals on the number and percentage of criminal aliens in federal prisons on October 29, 2016 (The most recent crime numbers available.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– México 27,815 inmates, 14.6 percent;
– Columbia 1,702 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,685 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Cuba 1,228 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 9,516 inmates, 5.0 percent;
– United States 149,194 inmates, 78.1 percent;

Total Inmates 191,140 inmates.

Putting these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages into words:

On October 29th there were 41,946 criminal alien inmates in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 21.9 percent of the federal prison population; more than two in every ten prisoners were criminal aliens.

The 27,815 Mexican nationals in the BOP prison system were a staggering 66.3 percent, almost two thirds, of the criminal aliens in federal prisons.

An interesting fact, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses.

A significant fact, one of the top five offenses, the reason BOP inmates were incarcerated in federal prisons, was for immigration crimes. There were 15,580 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 8.7 percent of the federal prison population.

The Fourth Estate, defined as “the public press,” needs to exercise due diligence in reporting on foreign national crime so that elected and nonelected governmental officials responsible for law enforcement at a national, state and local level will be held accountable in enforcing laws written to protect U.S. citizens and residents from criminal aliens that have and continue to invade our country.

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report October 2016

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report October 2016

November 30, 2016

Data Compiled By David Olen Cross

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) October 1, 2016 Inmate Population Profile indicated there were 14,708 inmates incarcerated in the DOC’s 14 prisons.

Data obtained from the DOC indicated that on October 1st there were 951 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in the state’s prison system; more than one in every sixteen prisoners incarcerated by the state was a criminal alien, 6.47 percent of the total prison population.

Some background information, all 951 criminal aliens currently incarcerated in the DOC prison system were identified by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a federal law enforcement agency that is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. If an inmate is identified by ICE as being a criminal alien, at the federal law enforcement agency’s request, DOC officials will place an “ICE detainer” on the inmate. After the inmate completes his/her state sanction, prison officials will transfer custody of the inmate to ICE.

Using DOC Inmate Population Profiles and ICE detainer numbers, the following table reveals the total number inmates, the number of domestic and criminal alien inmates along with the percentage of them with ICE detainers incarcerated on October 1st in the state’s prisons.

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 ($94.55) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 951 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($89,917.05) per day, ($629,419.35) per week, and ($32,819,723.25) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2015 U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $1,602,510.00, if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2016, the cost to incarcerate 951 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($31,217,213.25).

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 951 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

November 17, 2016

Lars:

It has been an interesting third full week in the month of November when it comes to criminal aliens here in the Pacific Northwest part of the United States of America.

This week we put another face to alien crime for your radio listeners — today we will talk about a local politician, Mayor-Elect Ted Wheeler, who declared on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 that Portland, Oregon will continue to be a sanctuary city for foreign nationals illegally in the country.

We will always see ourselves as a sanctuary city, and we will continue to be welcoming to everyone” – Ted Wheeler, Willamette Week interview November 15, 2016.

Apparently Mayor-Elect Wheeler thinks it is ok to have foreign nationals illegally in the country, he calls them “undocumented immigrants,” to illegally enter the country or to overstay a work, student or travel visa and then root themselves in Portland — that kind of criminal behavior by aliens is ok with him.

Unfortunately for the residents of Portland, Ted Wheeler has chosen to ignore the collateral damage of having undocumented immigrants (illegal aliens) reside in the community he will preside over, moreover, the high crime rate illegal aliens inflict on the community.

As most of your Pacific Northwest radio listeners know the City of Portland is located mostly within the boundaries of Multnomah County.

A stark reality the Mayor-Elect should be aware of is that on October 1, 2016 Multnomah County had 207 of the 951 criminal aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system; the county had 21.77 percent of the criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

Here is how the residents of the City of Portland and greater Multnomah County have been harmed or victimized by the 207 criminal aliens with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) immigration detainers in the DOC prison system (See table below).

Criminal aliens from 30 different countries have harmed or victimized the residents of the City of Portland and greater Multnomah County.

It is unfortunate for the public safety of the residents of the City of Portland and greater Multnomah County that Mayor-Elect Ted Wheeler will continue the scandalous history of Portland being a sanctuary city for criminal aliens.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

November 10, 2016

Lars:

It has been an interesting second full week in the month of November when it comes to criminal aliens here in the Pacific Northwest part of the United States of America.

This week we put another face to alien crime for your radio listeners — aliens who have violated out nation’s immigrations laws when they were brought into the United States illegally as minor children by their parents. They are collectively as children and parents are referred to as illegal aliens.

A brief history: In an attempt to deal with a significant portion of the millions of illegal aliens present in the country, on June 15, 2012, the administration of U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama, through an executive action, instituted through a memo, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA is administered by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Service (CIS).

Congressional opponents to the Obama administration’s DACA program voted to defund the program in June 2013, opponents believing the president though the use of a memo can’t waive or change U.S. immigration law. The U.S. House of Representatives’ rejection of administration’s DACA program was not successful because the program administered by CIS is self-funding through fees.

Returning to the present: U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services (USCIS) webpage has the most current number of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) participants.

After reading the DACA tables, my understanding is there are a total of 741,546 DACA participants nationwide.

In the three states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho there are 31,023 DACA participants:

– 10,995 DACA participants in Oregon,
– 16,987 DACA participants in Washington,
– 3,041 DACA participants in Idaho.

The election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States will likely mean an end to the Obama administrations’ DACA program.

One important element of U.S. President-Elect Trump’s immigration vision is to “immediately terminate” the Obama administration’s “executive amnesties.”

Current participants in the DACA program are very like to be put back in line for removal from the country with their parents.

A stark reality for DACA participants is U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services is a part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which includes U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). If these DHS sister agencies share information it won’t be that difficult to round up these illegal aliens and remove them from the country.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

October 27, 2016

Lars:

It has been an interesting last full week in the month of October when it comes to criminal aliens here in the Pacific Northwest part of the United States of America.

This week we put another face to alien crime for your radio listeners — criminal aliens who deal illicit drugs.

On Monday, October 17, 2016 Josue Anton Valdovinos-Moreno (SID: 16110851), age 24 (Date of Birth: 06/03/1992), was arrested by members of the Westside Interagency Narcotics (WIN) team.

At the time of Valdovinos-Moreno’s arrest the WIN team sized 7 pounds of methamphetamine, a semi-automatic handgun and $194,500.00 in cash. The street value of the meth was estimated to be $50,000.00.

Valdovinos-Moreno is currently incarcerated at the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon where online jail records indicate he has been charged with one count unlawful possession of methamphetamine and one count unlawful delivery of methamphetamine.

My understanding is the WIN team, a multi law enforcement agency cooperative, includes Homeland Security Investigations so I decided to investigate the immigration status of Josue Anton Valdovinos-Moreno.

On Monday, October 24th, I contacted the Northwest Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Spokesperson Rose M. Richeson to find out the immigration status of Valdovinos-Moreno.

The next day, on Tuesday, October 25th ICE Spokesperson Richeson shared the following information:

“This week, deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged a Request for Voluntary Transfer (Form I-247X) on Josue Antonio Valdovinos-Moreno, who is currently in the custody of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. The I-247X requests that authorities at the jail to notify ICE prior to Mr. Valdovinos’ release so ICE can arrange to take him into custody in order to pursue possible administrative immigration enforcement action. Department of Homeland Security databases indicate Mr. Valdovino has not been subject to any prior immigration enforcement actions.” – Rose M. Richeson

The same day, October 25th, via e-mail, I inquired from the ICE spokesperson the country of origin of Valdovinos-Moreno. This was her response the next day, October 26th:

“Department of Homeland Security databases indicate he is from Mexico.” – Rose M. Richeson

Enforcement groups support Trump

Donald Trump, in his campaign for president of the United States of America, has identified illegal immigration and the crimes committed by illegal immigrants as significant problems facing our country. Trump has a 10-point immigration plan centered on national security and public safety that includes building a border wall, removing criminal aliens and ending sanctuary cities.

Any concerned citizen voter who wants to validate Trump’s stand on illegal immigrant crime can simply go to the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons inmates statistics website and add up the most recent numbers on inmate citizenship that indicate 42,401 prisoners in the federal prison system were foreign nationals; that’s over 22 percent of federal prison population. In the federal prison system there were 28,264 Mexican nationals incarcerated; they were 66.7 percent of the foreign nationals in federal prisons.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. Federal prisons had 15,990 inmates, 8.8 percent, incarcerated for immigration crimes.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has two components, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection that are at the forefront of enforcing federal immigration law.

Two groups, the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, the union of ICE officers, and the National Border Patrol Council, the union of CBP Agents, have endorsed Donald Trump for president of the United States of America.
