Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

May 5, 2016

Lars:

It has been an interesting first week in the month of May 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 rape little girls.

Tuesday, December 15, 2015 the Keizer Police took into custody Mexican national Raul Xalamihua-Espindola, now age 28, after eight years and legal proceedings that involved him being arrested, held in Mexican prison and extradited to the United States.

Some back ground information: In early April of 2007 Espindola, then 19 years old, took an 11 year old girl, a resident of Keizer, Oregon, whom he claimed to be his girl friend to Zongolica, Vera Cruz, Mexico without her parents’ permission (Note: According to other media reports, the girl and her parents are Mexican nationals, likely resident aliens).

On September 4, 2007 a Keizer Police officer and FBI agent flew to Mexico City and recovered the young crime victim taking her into protective custody. She was shortly thereafter returned to her parents in Keizer.

Back to present, on December 16, 2015 Espindola was arraigned at the Marion County Circuit Court Annex.

On December 29, 2015 Espindola pled not guilty in a Marion County Circuit Court to four counts of first-degree rape and one count of first-degree custodial interference.

Tuesday, May 3, 2016 Raul Xalamihua-Espindola pled guilty to three counts of first-degree rape. His sentencing is scheduled for June 6, 2016.

Raul Xalamihua-Espindola (SID: 21474383) is currently being incarcerated at the Marion County Correction Facility (MCCF).

Some fast Facts:

– The MCCF no longer honors Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers without a federal warrant for an individuals arrest.

– The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) on April 1, 2016 had 761 Mexican nationals incarcerated; 80.27 percent of the foreign nationals in the states prisons.

– Marion County is the fifth most populous county in Oregon. The county is number one in foreign national crime with 236 criminal aliens incarcerated in the DOC prison system; 24.89 percent of the foreign nationals in the prison system.

– Oregon County Circuit Courts have sent 139 Mexican nationals to serve time in the DOC prison system for the crime of rape.

– Marion County Circuit Courts’ have sent 44 Mexican nationals to serve time in the DOC prison system for the crime of rape; 31.65 percent criminal aliens incarcerated for rape.

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report April 2016

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report April 2016

April 26, 2016

Data Compiled By David Olen Cross

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) April 2016 Inmate Population Profile indicated there were 14,676 inmates incarcerated in the DOC’s 14 prisons.

Data obtained from the DOC indicated that on April 1st there were 948 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, 6.46 percent of the total prison population.

Some background information, all 948 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 April 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 948 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($89,633.40) per day, ($627,433.80) per week, and ($32,716,191.00) 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 948 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($31,113,681.00).

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 948 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

April 14, 2016

Lars:

It has been an interesting third full week in the month of April 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 101.1 F.M. radio listeners on the Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of The Week Report — criminal aliens charged with financial crimes.

On April 12, 2016 the Salem Police Detectives and the Oregon Division of Financial Regulation announced the completion of an investigation that resulted in the arrest of mortgage consultant Oscar Tejada-Sandoval [SID: 38183], age 48, a resident of West Salem, Oregon.

The current criminal charges against Tejada-Sandoval include Theft in the First Degree, Aggravated theft in the First Degree, Aggravated Identity Theft and Forgery in the First Degree.

The charges against Tejada-Sandoval were filed in Polk County where he bonded out of the Polk County Jail.

Tejada-Sandoval is alleged to have victimized eight individuals and two financial institutions in the amount in excess of $63,000.00.

His known victims lived in McMinnville, Beaverton, Woodburn, Eugene and Salem.

Checking the website today of Oregon Vinelink.com and phone call to a Vinelink staff member revealed that Oscar Tejada-Sandoval [SID: 204834] is currently incarcerated almost 200 miles from where he was initially arrested  at the Josephine County Jail in Grants Pass, Oregon.

Double checking Oscar Tejada-Sandoval’s incarceration status, I made a phone call to the Josephine County Jail where a deputy at the jail revealed that Tejada-Sandoval was incarcerated at the jail and being held at the request of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

Former ‘Gang of 8’ member Rubio unfit as presidential candidate

SJ Statesman Journal
PART OF THE USA TODAY NETWORK

Former ‘Gang of 8’ member Rubio unfit as presidential candidate

David Olen Cross 8 p.m. PST March 9, 2016

Republican presidential candidate Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was a leading member of the “Gang of Eight” which worked and voted for the passage of Senate Bill 744 (S.744) in 2013, a bill they termed “comprehensive immigration reform,” but which was actually a wide-sweeping amnesty to illegal immigrants that contained only weak promises for future law enforcement of the country’s immigration laws. The bill all but ignored the past and present illicit activities and criminal conduct of illegal immigrants currently in the country.

Just three years ago, Sen. Rubio showed he was willing to overlook the criminal activities of 11.3 million illegal immigrants who may have committed crimes and misdemeanors like identity theft, social security fraud, over staying visas and illegal employment.

Fortunately for national security and the public safety of all Americans the Gang of Eight’s amnesty attempt went no further than the U.S. Senate because citizens across the country pressured the U.S. House of Representatives not to consider the bill.

This year, on Jan. 17, presidential candidate Rubio reminded Americans of his support for amnesty for criminal immigrants while being interviewed by Chuck Todd on NBC’s Meet the Press.

A politician to the core, Sen. Rubio said in the interview with Todd that illegal immigrants who were felons would not be granted amnesty while those immigrants who had committed only “immigration crimes” would not be excluded from receiving amnesty.

What might be said of Rubio’s Meet the Press interview is that he purposely didn’t reveal there are some “immigration crimes” like repeat illegal entry into the country and document fraud that do constitute felony crimes.

Recent U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons inmate statistics’ indicate there are 17,354 federal prisoners incarcerated for immigration offenses, 9.4 percent of the federal prison population.

The federal prison system incarcerates at least 34,806 foreign national inmates; they are at a minimum 17.7 percent of the federal government’s prison inmates.

As 2016 presidential primary elections occur across our nation, American voters who rejected Sen. Marco Rubio’s 2013 amnesty bill for illegal immigrants should reject his bid to become the Republican candidate for President of the United States.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

February 18, 2016

Lars:

It has been an interesting third week in the month of February 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 101.1 F.M. radio listeners on the Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of The Week Report — criminal aliens who are incarcerated in county jails in NW America.

Currently there are 5 Foreign Nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated at the Jackson County Jail in Medford, Oregon for various crimes that jail officials have indicated that United States (U.S.) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) needs to be contacted before their release or transfer from the jail (See links below).

1. Coles, Jose Trinidad [SID: 18315823]
2. Enriquez, Ezequiel Ayala [SID: 1699229]
3. Marmolejo, Ruben Escareno [SID: 21469474]
4. Munoz-Cruz, Alejandro [SID: 21333612]
5. Ramirez, Jose Raphael [SID: 21171283]

http://jacksoncountyor.org/sheriff/Jail/JailInformation.aspx

With all the changes in immigration policy by Oregon county sheriffs across the state after a 2014 legal ruling by a federal magistrate judge in a case in Clackamas County concerning federal immigration detainers, Oregonians should thank the Jackson County Sherriff for attempting to cooperate with ICE at some level in this difficult legal climate now existing that threatens the public safety and national security of the citizens of our country.
