Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

September 17, 2020

Lars:

It has been an interesting third week in the month of September 2020 when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

This week we report for your radio listeners on the death of a criminal illegal alien who had been serving a life sentence for homicide in an Oregon prison.

On Tuesday, September 8, 2020 the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) issued a news release titled “Oregon State Penitentiary reports two in-custody deaths.”

The DOC news release identified Arturo Mora Ruiz aka Arturo Ruiz (SID: 6099997; DOB: 05/23/1961), age 59, as one of individuals who died on September 5, 2020. He died in a local hospital.

Arturo Mora Ruiz had been incarcerated since June 18, 1985 by the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC), most recently at the Oregon State Penitentiary (OSP) in Salem, where he was serving a life sentence for the crime of homicide out of Jackson County.

Inmate records obtained from the DOC indicated Arturo Mora Ruiz was a Mexican national U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) had identified as a criminal alien, furthermore, the fact ICE had lodged an immigration detainer on him.

The “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 sent via e-mail U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs a request for information on the historical immigration status of Arturo Mora Ruiz.

On Tuesday, September 15, 2020 ICE Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Tanya Roman sent via e-mail the following statement on Arturo Mora Ruiz:

“Arturo Mora-Ruiz was a Mexican citizen illegally present in the United States.

“On May 30, 1985, the Jackson County Circuit Court convicted Mora-Ruiz of one count of murder and sentenced him to life imprisonment.

“On Sept. 26, 1988, an immigration judge ordered Mora-Ruiz removed from the United States to Mexico.” – Tanya Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

“On Background (To be attributed to an ICE Official):

Mora-Ruiz’ records are currently housed at the National Records Center (NRC). Therefore, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has no further information readily available about his case.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Prior to the death of Arturo Mora Ruiz, including him, on August 1, 2020 there were 826 criminal aliens incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections prison system.

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and percentages by countries of origin, by crime types or by the state’s counties, criminal aliens from the Americas pose high economic cost on Oregon tax payers.

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

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 735 criminal alien prison population from the Americas is approximately ($79,571.10) per day, ($556,997.70) per week, and ($29,043,451.50) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 735 criminal aliens from the Americas 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

September 3, 2020

Lars:

It has been an interesting first week in the month of September 2020 when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

This week we have an update for your radio listeners on a criminal illegal alien who had been charged with multiple sex crimes against a young female in the state of Oregon.

On August 28, 2020 the Washington County District Attorney’s Office (WCDAO) issued a news release titled “Claudio Valentin-Espinoza Convicted on Multiple Counts in Sexual Abuse Case.”

According to the District Attorney’s Office’s news release, on August 27, 2020 a Washington County jury had found Claudio Valentin-Espinoza, age 43, guilty of guilty of First-Degree Unlawful Sexual Penetration and two counts of First-Degree Sexual Abuse..

Here are detailed excerpts from the Washington County District Attorney’s Office August 28, 2020 news release that describe events that led up to the investigation and arrest of Claudio Valentin-Espinoza:

“In November of 2012, the defendant sexually abused a young female victim who was known to him at the time. That abuse was not reported until 2015. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office then launched an investigation. Detectives found that the defendant abruptly quit his job and fled the state after the victim’s mother confronted him with the allegations. A warrant was then issued for his arrest.

In October of 2019, law enforcement in Sonoma County, California arrested the defendant. He was then extradited back to Oregon to face the above charges.” – WCDAO

Currently Claudio Valentin-Espinoza (ID 89576; DOB: 12/03/1977) is incarcerated at the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon awaiting his September 16, 2020 sentencing hearing.

The “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” on Monday, August 31, 2020 sent via e-mail U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Alethea Smock a request for information on the historical immigration status of Claudio Valentin-Espinoza.

On Wednesday, September 2, 2020 ICE Public Affairs Officer Smock sent via e-mail the following statement on Claudio Valentin-Espinoza:

“Claudio Valentin-Espinoza, 43, is a Mexican citizen and convicted criminal alien with an egregious criminal history going back more than a decade. He initially illegally entered the U.S. in 2001 at an unknown location.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE), Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) initially encountered and lodged a detainer in 2008 for Valentin-Espinoza with Washington County Jail following his arrest and subsequent conviction for child neglect. An immigration judge ordered him removed from the U.S. Oct. 15, 2008 pursuant to a stipulated order of removal. On Oct. 20, 2008, Washington County Jail transferred him to ICE custody, and he was removed from the U.S. to Mexico, Oct. 25, 2008. He later illegally reentered the U.S. at an unknown location and time.

Valentin-Espinoza convictions include two convictions in Washington County, Oregon for probation violations for hit and run; and two convictions in Beaverton, Oregon – one for child neglect.

ICE ERO encountered Valentin-Espinoza again following his arrest in Windsor, California, Oct. 26, 2019, and lodged a detainer the next day with Sonoma County Main Adult Detention Center, Santa Rosa, California.

In March, ICE ERO lodged a detainer on Valentin-Espinoza with Washington County Jail following his arrest and subsequent guilty verdict of sexual abuse and sexual penetration. The sentencing for these crimes is pending.” – Alethea Smock, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

“ON BACKGROUND:

ICE’s mission remains consistent: to identify, arrest and remove aliens who present a danger to national security or are a risk to public safety, as well as those who enter the country illegally or otherwise undermine the integrity of our immigration laws and our border control efforts.

Illegal re-entry is a federal criminal charge, and violators may face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Under previous ICE policies, it was not standard for the agency to routinely issue immigration detainers, therefore , in 2016 once was not issued on this individual. Under current policies, ICE routinely issues immigration detainers to the greatest extent practicable.” – ICE Public Affairs.

After criminal illegal alien Claudio Valentin-Espinoza is sentenced for his sex crimes against the young female in a Washington County Circuit Court room he will be joining as many as 377 other Mexican national sex offenders who are now incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report August 2020

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report August 2020

September 1, 2020

By David Olen Cross

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nation’s 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 22, 2020.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 15,392 inmates, 9.9 percent;
– Colombia 1,569 inmates, 1.0 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,243 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 926 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 7,548 inmates, 4.8 percent;
– United States 129,342 inmates, 82.9 percent;

Total Inmates: 156,020 inmates.

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

Combining August 22nd BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 26,678 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 17.1 percent of the federal prison population.

With 15,392 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 57.7 percent, they represent a significant 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 six offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 6,439 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 4.4 percent of the federal prison population.
