Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

September 8, 2011

Lars:

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

Tuesday, September 6th, the Clackamas County Jail in Oregon City, Oregon had 22 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 5.07% 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. Seven of the 22 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Clackamas County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 31.82% of the alien jail population (methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin).

Wednesday, September 7th, the Jackson County Jail in Medford, Oregon had 7 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 3.04% of the jail population U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally. Four of the 7 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Jackson County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 51.47% of the alien jail population (methamphetamine).

Thursday, September 8th, the Linn County Jail in Albany, Oregon had 8 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail that U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally. One of the 8 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Linn County Jail was involved in some type of drug crime, 12.50% of the alien jail population (methamphetamine).

Lars, we also have two additional items related to illegal immigration, we have an illegal alien of the day and an anti-illegal immigration activity for your radio listeners.

Tuesday, September 6th, in a United States District Court in Portland, Konstantin Kuznetsov, a Kazakhstan national, was found guilty of a firearm violation and for attempting to sell heroin on the streets of Portland. Kuznetsov was sentenced to 70 months in a federal prison.

A disconcerting fact about Kuznetsov, while he was selling heroin around Portland he kept a pipe bomb in the trunk of his car.

As of September 8th, Konstantin Kuznetsov was still incarcerated at the Multnomah County Jail where ICE agents had placed immigration hold on him.

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

Criminal Aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections Prison System

Criminal Aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections Prison System

August 31, 2011

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated August 1, 2011 DOC indicated there were 14,027 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s August 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,217 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,217 criminal aliens incarcerated on August 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 8.68% of the DOC August 1st prison population.

Comparing DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers from August 1, 2008 (1,077 criminal aliens) and August 1, 2011 (1,217 criminal aliens), the DOC prison system incarcerated 140 criminal aliens more than it did on August 1, 2008, a 13.00% increase.

When comparing DOC domestic criminal incarceration numbers from August 1, 2008 (12,518 domestic criminals) and August 1, 2011 (12,810 domestic criminals), the DOC prison system incarcerated 292 domestic criminals more than it did on August 1, 2008, a 2.33% increase.

A review of the 1,217 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%), 12-Benton (0.99%), 91-Clackamas (7.48%), 9-Clatsop (0.74%), 1-Columbia (0.08%), 7-Coos (0.57%), 2-Crook (0.16%), 2-Curry (0.16%), 15-Deschutes (1.23%), 6-Douglas (0.49%), 1-Gilliam (0.08%), 1-Grant (0.08%), 3-Harney (0.25%), 6-Hood River (0.49%), 51-Jackson (4.19%), 12-Jefferson (0.99%), 6-Josephine (0.49%), 10-Klamath (0.82%), 0-Lake (0.00), 61-Lane (5.01%), 11-Lincoln (0.90%), 23-Linn (1.89%), 18-Malheur (1.48%), 266-Marion (21.86%), 7-Morrow (0.57%), 276-Multnomah (22.68%), 1-OOS (0.08%), 21-Polk (1.72%), 0-Sherman (0.00%), 4-Tillamook (0.33%), 22-Umatilla (1.81%), 1-Union (0.08), 0-Wallowa (0.00%), 4-Wasco (0.33%), 233-Washington (19.14%), 0-Wheeler (0.00%), and 34-Yamhill (2.79%).

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 1,217 criminal aliens incarcerated in DOC prisons.

A review of the 1,217 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 4-arsons (0.33%), 132-assaults (10.85%), 39-burglaries (3.20%), 36-driving offenses (2.96%), 185-drugs (15.20%), 3-forgeries (0.25%), 148-homicides (12.16%), 50-kidnappings (4.11%), 65-others (5.34%), 174-rapes (14.30%), 81-robberies (6.65%), 210-sex abuses (17.25%), 76-sodomies (6.24%), 12-thefts (0.99%), and 2-vehicle thefts (0.16%).

Oregon State Legislators should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,217 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,217 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 10-Canada (0.82%), 10-Cuba (0.82%), 13-El Salvador (1.07%), 29-Guatemala (2.38%), 14-Honduras (1.15%), 5-Laos (0.41%), 1,031-Mexico (84.72%), 63-others (5.18%), 5-Philippines (0.41%), 5-Russia (0.41%), 14-Ukraine (1.15%), and 18-Vietnam (1.48%).

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 1,217 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($102,787.82) per day, ($719,514.74) per week, and ($37,517,554.30) 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 1,217 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($32,578,127.30) (See link).

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

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,217 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, August 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 August 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.

Oregonians should contact their Oregon State Senator and Representative serving in the Oregon State Legislature and ask them to reintroduce, support and pass legislation like HB 2803 during in the next legislative session.

Oregon employers should use E-Verify

OPINION
Oregon employers should use E-Verify

9:00 PM, Aug. 31, 2011|

Written by
David Olen Cross

Jeff Stone, executive director of the Oregon Association of Nurseries, in a recent Eugene Register-Guard editorial republished in part on StatesmanJournal.com under the title, “Reject efforts to mandate a faulty E-Verify system” says he doesn’t like legislation (HR 2164) now before the U.S. Congress that would require all employers in the country to use U.S. Department of Homeland Security E-Verify (DHS) system.

Unapologetically in various media outlets across the state, Jeff Stone has stated that 70 percent of OAN membership’s employees are undocumented workers.

A group of business organizations called the Coalition for a Working Oregon (CWO), OAN being a member organization, commissioned a study in 2008 that purported CWO membership employs 97,000 undocumented workers in the state.

Stone, a spokesperson for both OAN and CWO, needs a U.S. federal employment law reality check; U.S. law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States — U.S. citizens or foreign citizens legally present with authorization to work in the country.

The importance of Oregon employers mandatorily using U.S. DHS- E-Verify system really becomes apparent when looking at Oregon’s unemployment rate in July 2011 being at 9.5 percent, 189,501 Oregonians were unemployed. July unemployment numbers for Marion County were higher at 10.3 percent; 16,128 of the county’s residents were unemployed.

According to Oregon Employment Department the July 2011 civilian labor force was 2,014,343. Using the 2008 CWO study’s purported employment number of 97,000 undocumented workers, CWO membership business organizations’ undocumented workers would makeup approximately 4.8 percent of the Oregon July 2011 civilian labor force.

Removing 97,000 undocumented workers from Oregon’s civilian labor force (subtract the 97,000 undocumented workers from the 189,501 Oregonians who were unemployed) could theoretically lower the number those unemployed Oregonians legally able to work in the state to 92,501, an unemployment rate of just over 4.6 percent.

Unemployed Oregonians who are U.S. citizens or foreign citizens legally present with authorization to work in country should not have to compete for jobs with undocumented foreign national workers illegally in the state.

If all Oregon businesses not currently using U.S. DHS- E-Verify system were required to use it, Oregon’s unemployment rate would drop dramatically because all new jobs created in state would go to U.S. citizens or those legally present to work in the country.

Currently more than 2,000 Oregon businesses and government entities are successfully using U.S. DHS- E-Verify system. At least 163 Marion County businesses are using the U.S. DHS-E-Verify system (www.dhs.gov/files/programs/gc_1185221678150.shtm).

Oregonians should contact their United States congressional representatives Sen. Jeff Merkley, Sen. Ron Wyden and Rep. Kurt Schrader and ask them to support the passage into law of HR 2164 that would mandatorily require all U.S. businesses and government entities to use U.S. DHS- E-Verify system so all 189,501 unemployed Oregonians who are U.S. citizens or foreign citizens legally present with authorization to work in the country can go back to work.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars:

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated August  1, 2011 DOC indicated there were 14,027 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s August 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,217 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system (See attachment).

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, 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.

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, 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).
