Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

September 29, 2011

Lars:

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated September 1, 2011 DOC indicated there were 13,980 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s September 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,199 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,199 criminal aliens incarcerated on September 1st by DOC had United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), detainers. The U.S. DHS–ICE is responsible for indentifying whether a DOC inmate is a criminal alien or a domestic inmate. If an inmate is identified as being a criminal alien, at U.S. DHS–ICE’s request, the DOC places an “ICE detainer” on the inmate that directs DOC officials to transfer custody to ICE following completion of the inmate’s state sanction.

Criminal aliens made up approximately 8.58% of the DOC September 1st prison population.

Comparing DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers from September 1, 2008 (1,081 criminal aliens) and September 1, 2011 (1,199 criminal aliens), the DOC prison system incarcerated 118 criminal aliens more than it did on September 1, 2008, a 10.91%% increase.

When comparing DOC domestic criminal incarceration numbers from September 1, 2008 (12,477 domestic criminals) and September 1, 2011 (12,781 domestic criminals), the DOC prison system incarcerated 304 domestic criminals more than it did on September 1, 2008, a 2.44% increase.

A review of the 1,199 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%), 13-Benton (1.08%), 86-Clackamas (7.17%), 9-Clatsop (0.75%), 1-Columbia (0.08%), 7-Coos (0.58%), 2-Crook (0.17%), 2-Curry (0.17%), 15-Deschutes (1.25%), 5-Douglas (0.42%), 1-Gilliam (0.08%), 1-Grant (0.08%), 3-Harney (0.25%), 6-Hood River (0.50%), 51-Jackson (4.25%), 12-Jefferson (1.00%), 5-Josephine (0.42%), 10-Klamath (0.83%), 0-Lake (0.00), 61-Lane (5.09%), 11-Lincoln (0.92%), 23-Linn (1.92%), 17-Malheur (1.42%), 265-Marion (21.10%), 7-Morrow (0.58%), 272-Multnomah (22.68%), 1-OOS (0.08%), 23-Polk (1.92%), 0-Sherman (0.00%), 3-Tillamook (0.25%), 22-Umatilla (1.83%), 1-Union (0.08), 0-Wallowa (0.00%), 4-Wasco (0.33%), 228-Washington (19.10%), 0-Wheeler (0.00%), and 32-Yamhill (2.67%).

No member of the Oregon State Legislature should forget the uncounted crime victims and their families, no matter what their immigration status, all victims of the 1,199 criminal aliens incarcerated in DOC prisons.

A review of the 1,199 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 4-arsons (0.33%), 127-assaults (10.59%), 37-burglaries (3.08%), 34-driving offenses (2.83%), 182-drugs (15.18%), 3-forgeries (0.25%), 143-homicides (11.93%), 50-kidnappings (4.17%), 62-others (5.17%), 174-rapes (14.51%), 81-robberies (6.75%), 211-sex abuses (17.60%), 76-sodomies (6.34%), 13-thefts (1.08%), and 2-vehicle thefts (0.17%).

Oregon State Legislators should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,199 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,199 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 10-Canada (0.83%), 9-Cuba (0.75%), 13-El Salvador (1.08%), 29-Guatemala (2.42%), 13-Honduras (1.08%), 6-Laos (0.50%), 1,016-Mexico (84.74%), 62-others (5.17%), 5-Philippines (0.42%), 6-Russia (0.50%), 13-Ukraine (1.08%), and 17-Vietnam (1.42%).

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 in the DOC prison system costs approximately $84.46 per day to incarcerate (See link).

http://www.oregon.gov/DOC/PUBAFF/docs/pdf/IB_53_quick_facts.pdf

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 1,199 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($101,267.54) per day, ($708,872.78) per week, and ($36,962,652.10) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2010 United States Federal Government State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $4,939,427.00 if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2011, the cost to incarcerate 1,199 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($32,023,225.10) (See link).

http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/BJA/grant/10_SCAAPAward_.pdf

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,199 criminal aliens include the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), court costs, nor cost estimates to cover victim assistance.

An unfortunate fact, the State of Oregon is not fully cooperating with the U.S. DHS–ICE to fight crime committed by criminal aliens who reside in Oregon.

In year 2007, a United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) report titled “Cooperation of SCAAP (State Criminal Alien Assistance Program) Recipients in the Removal of Criminal Aliens from the United States, U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General Audit Division, Audit Report 07-07, September 2007, Redacted-Public Version” identified the State of Oregon as having an official “state sanctuary statute,” ORS 181.850 Enforcement of federal immigration laws (See link).

http://www.usdoj.gov/oig/reports/OJP/a0707/final.pdf

The USDOJ, the federal governments top law enforcement agency, identified Oregon as a “sanctuary” for criminal aliens.

An Oregon law, Oregon Revised Statue 181.850 (ORS 181.850), Section (1), prohibits Oregon law enforcement (Oregon State Police (OSP), county sheriffs, city police departments) from asking immigration status of anyone residing in the State of Oregon “for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.” Under ORS 181.850, Section (2), Oregon law enforcement September exchange information with U.S. DHS–ICE . . . “in order to: Subsection (a), “Verify the immigration status of a person if the person is arrested for any criminal offense;” or, Subsection (b), “Request criminal investigation information with reference to persons named in records of the” U.S. DHS–ICE . . . (See link).

http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/181.html

The next Oregon State Legislature legislative session should pass legislation like House Bill 2803 (HB 2803) offered during the 2011 legislative session that will rewrite ORS 181.850 to untie the hands of Oregon law enforcement, OSP, county sheriffs, and city police departments, from helping U.S. DHS–ICE fight crime committed by criminal aliens who reside in Oregon (See link).

http://www.leg.state.or.us/11reg/measpdf/hb2800.dir/hb2803.intro.pdf

The State of Oregon should no longer be classified by U.S. federal government law enforcement as having an official “state sanctuary statute” for criminal aliens, nor should Oregon be a sanctuary for criminal aliens to kill, rape, or maim Oregonians.

Lars, I ask you to please have your KXL 101.1 radio audience contact their Oregon State Senator and Representative and ask them to reintroduce, support, and pass legislation like HB 2803 in the next Oregon State Legislature legislative session.

Perry’s weakness (Illegal Immigration)

Mailbag: Perry’s weakness

Posted: Saturday, September 24, 2011 8:45 am | No Comments Posted

Hasso Hering’s Sept. 14 editorial, “Perry did not warrant boos,” bemoaned Texas Governor Rick Perry being booed by an audience at a Republican presidential candidate debate without addressing Perry’s perceived weaknesses on illegal immigration and jobs.

The anti-illegal immigration organization NumbersUSA ranks all Presidential primary candidates on a grading scale of A to F. The organization gave Governor Perry a “D-” for his historically weak leadership on issues pertaining to illegal immigration.

In 2001, Governor Perry signed into law legislation (the Texas Dream Act) giving in-state tuition to undocumented international students illegally present in the United States.

Perry giving in-state tuition to undocumented students has cost Texas taxpayers millions of dollars to underwrite the tuition of those students. Students participating in the Texas Dream Act, even after completing their education, can’t legally work in the country — even in Texas.

Governor Perry’s presidential primary campaign has touted the number of jobs created in Texas under the governor’s tenure.

Yet during a Jan. 14, 2010 gubernatorial election debate, Governor Perry revealed a real lack of concern for unemployed Texans when he stated “E-Verify would not make a hill of beans’ difference when it comes to what’s happening in America today.” According to a 2010 PEW Hispanic Center report, Texas was “number two” in undocumented workers in the country, 1.1 million workers, approximately 9 percent of Texas’ workforce.

Rick Perry pontificating that he is the only Republican presidential primary candidate that has created American jobs in a difficult recession (9.1 percent national unemployment rate) should trigger skepticism in Republican presidential primary voters. Primary voters should ask Perry the following pertinent two part question:

Governor Perry, during your tenure, how many jobs did you create that actually went to U.S. citizens in Texas. Furthermore, who did you educate to do those jobs?

David Olen Cross, Salem (Sept. 19)

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

September 22, 2011

Lars:

It has been an interesting third full week in the month of September when it comes to criminal aliens here in the State of Oregon.

Tuesday, September 20th, the Umatilla County Jail in Pendleton, Oregon had seven criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 4.89% of the jail population the United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally. One of the seven criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Umatilla County Jail was involved in some type of drug crime, 14.28% of the alien jail population (methamphetamine).

Thursday, September 22nd, the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon had 81 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 14.16% of the jail population the U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally. Fourteen of the 81 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Washington County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 17.28% of the alien jail population (cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana).

This week we also have a couple of criminal aliens of the week.

On Friday, September 16th, the Oregonian newspaper reported two separate traffic stops by the Oregon State Police (OSP) led to the arrest of Hugo Monjaraz-Bibiano, in one vehicle, and Adrian Carranza-Martinez and Juan Armando Orozco-Lopez in another vehicle near Medford, Oregon.

After a search of the vehicle Hugo Monjaraz-Bibiano was driving, the OSP discovered 7 kilos (15.4 pounds) of cocaine. Further investigation by the OSP connected all three men to the large quantity of cocaine discovered in Monjaraz-Bibiano’s vehicle.

All three alleged drug mules are currently incarcerated at the Jackson County Jail in Medford where they have been charged with manufacture, possession, and delivery of cocaine.

At this time, only Adrian Carranza-Martinez and Juan Armando Orozco-Lopez have U.S. DHS–ICE holds, a strong indicator they may be in the country illegally.

According to an OSP officer, the cocaine was being delivered to Portland.

The Jackson County Jail is one of eight Oregon county jails that use the U.S. DHS-ICE Secure Communities program to help indentify its jail population.

Lars, the third full week of September and three different criminal alien reports for your KXL 101.1 radio listeners.
