Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

August 15, 2019

Lars:

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

This week we take a look at for your Pacific Northwest radio listeners at a criminal illegal alien who has been arrested and charged with murder in the state of Oregon.

On Sunday, August 4, 2019 the Salem Police Department (SMP) arrested Alberto Medina-Cortes, age 43, in connection with the shooting of Fransicso Torres-Perez, age 24.

Fransicso Torres-Perez was transported to the Salem Hospital where medical personnel pronounced him deceased.

The person Alberto Medina-Cortes is accused of shooting to death apparently is his stepson.

Alberto Medina-Cortes (SID: 13056355; DOB: 01/23/1976) is currently incarcerated at the Marion County Correctional Facility (MCCF) in Salem, Oregon where online jail records indicated he has been charged with Murder.

Some background history, MCCF records indicated that Alberto Medina-Cortes was previously incarcerated at the jail during a three month period in 2009. In February and March of 2009 Medina-Cortes was charged with Fourth Degree Assault and had an INS Hold. In April he just had an INS Hold.

Seeking information on the immigration status Alberto Medina-Cortes, I contacted via e-mail on Sunday, August 11, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman with the following questions:

Does the ICE Public Affairs Officer know if Alberto Medina-Cortes is illegally present in the United States of America (USA)?

Has ICE placed an immigration detainer on Alberto Medina-Cortes during the time he has been incarcerated at the MCCF in 2019?

Did ICE place an immigration detainer (INS Hold) on Alberto Medina-Cortes during the time he was incarcerated ten years ago at the MCCF in 2009?

Has Alberto Medina-Cortes ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

How many times if any has Alberto Medina-Cortes been removed from the USA?

If Alberto Medina-Cortes has been previously removed from the USA, what were the dates, times and locations he was removed from the country?

Does ICE Public Affairs know Alberto Medina-Cortes’s country of origin?

On Thursday August 15th, ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following response to my preceding questions on Alberto Medina-Cortes:

“On Aug. 12, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged a detainer with the Marion County (Oregon) Jail, on Alberto Medina-Cortes, a Mexican citizen, who is in the United States illegally. On Aug. 4, 2019, Medina-Cortes was arrested by the Salem Police Department on local charges, including murder.

“In January 2009, ICE previously lodged a detainer on Medina-Cortes after he was arrested on local charges. In April 2009, he was turned over to ICE custody pursuant to the detainer. Medina-Cortes was released from ICE custody later that month after the posting of a bond, pending immigration proceedings. – Tanya Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

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 has probable cause to believe an alien is removable from the U.S.

“Despite the severe challenges that local policies have created for ICE, we remain committed to our public safety mission and we will continue to do our sworn duty to seek out dangerous criminal aliens and other immigration violators. ICE seeks straightforward cooperation with all local law enforcement and elected officials.” – ICE Public Affairs.

If Alberto Medina-Cortes were convicted of murder today in a Marion County Circuit Court room and sentenced by a judge to serve time in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system he would be joining approximately 101 Mexican nationals currently incarcerated for homicidal violence 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 place a substantial economic burden on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 893 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($96,676.18) per day, ($676,733.26) per week, and ($35,286,805.70) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 893 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report July 2019

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report July 2019

August 3, 2019

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 July 27, 2019.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 20,835 inmates, 11.8 percent;
– Colombia 1,611 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,414 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,129 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 8,948 inmates, 5.0 percent;
– United States 143,085 inmates, 80.8 percent;

Total Inmates: 177,022 inmates.

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

Combining July 27th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 33,937 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 19.2 percent of the federal prison population.

With 20,835 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 61.4 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 10,509 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.4 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 1, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting first week in the month of August 2019 when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

This week we take a look at for your radio listeners a criminal illegal alien who has been convicted again for a sex crime against child in the state of Oregon.

On June 27, 2019 Roberto Santiago-Martinez (SID: 22500693; DOB: 03/21/1981), age 38, was sentenced in a Washington County Circuit Court room in Hillsboro, Oregon to 75 months in prison after he was convicted of the crime of first degree Sex Abuse.

An 11 year-old girl was the victim of serial child sex abuser Roberto Santiago-Martinez.

At the time of his most recent conviction for Sex Abuse Roberto Santiago-Martinez was already incarcerated at the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem, Oregon where he is serving a 150 month sentence for prior convictions of Sex Abuse for impregnating a 14-year-old girl in Washington County.

Seeking information on the immigration status Roberto Santiago-Martinez, I contacted via e-mail on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman with the following questions:

Is Roberto Santiago-Martinez illegally present in the United States of America (USA)?

Was Roberto Santiago-Martinez illegally present in the USA during his current and past separate convictions for the crime of sex abuse against the two young girls?

Did ICE place an immigration detainer on Roberto Santiago-Martinez when he was incarcerated in the Washington County Jail?

Has ICE placed an immigration detainer on Roberto Santiago-Martinez since his incarceration in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system?

Has Roberto Santiago-Martinez ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

How many times if any has Roberto Santiago-Martinez been removed from the USA?

If Roberto Santiago-Martinez has been previously removed from the USA, what were the dates, times and locations he was removed from the country?

Does ICE Public Affairs know Roberto Santiago-Martinez’s country of origin?

On Friday, July 12, 2019 ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following response to the preceding questions on Roberto Santiago-Martinez:

“ICE has lodged two separate detainers on Roberto Santiago-Martinez, a Mexican citizen who is in the United States illegally. ICE lodged the first one March 27, 2018, with the Washington County Jail in Oregon after Santiago-Martinez was arrested for rape and sexual abuse. He was convicted of two counts of felony sexual abuse April 17, 2018, and relocated to the East Oregon Correctional Institution, part of the Oregon Department of Corrections, to serve his sentence. On April 26, 2018, ICE lodged a detainer with the Oregon Department of Corrections on Santiago-Martinez. That detainer is active.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

Some background information on criminal alien sex abusers from Washington County incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system:

Roberto Santiago-Martinez, a Mexican national, was one of 45 criminal aliens on June 1, 2019 from Washington County incarcerated in DOC prisons for the crime of sex abuse.

On June 1st Mexican nationals were 161 of the 184 criminal alien sex abusers incarcerated in state’s prisons — 83.48 percent of the alien sex abusers in the state’s prisons.
