Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
October 6, 2011
It has been an interesting first full week in the month of October when it comes to criminal aliens here in the State of Oregon.
Wednesday, October 5th, the Clackamas County Jail in Oregon City, Oregon had 23 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 5.30% 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. Six of the 23 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Clackamas County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 26.01% of the alien jail population (methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and marijuana).
Thursday, October 6th, the Linn County Jail in Albany, Oregon had 6 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail that U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally. One of the 6 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Linn County Jail was involved in some type of drug crime, 16.67% of the alien jail population (methamphetamine).
Lars, we don’t have a specific illegal alien of the week but instead I would like to address three illicit marijuana grows that have been busted across the state over the last five months.
June 15th in Wallowa County the Blue Mountain Enforcement Narcotics Team (BENT) and other law enforcement agencies busted a 91,000 plant marijuana grow and arrested Arturo Barbasa Barrera, Federico Rios Carrasco, Christian Ramos Gonzalez, Montes Fredy Fiquera Montes, Jesus Aguire Sanchez, and Audel Carrazco Soto. All six men, besides the marijuana charges, were charged under a federal law 18 USC 922(g) which is a strong indicator the United States federal government prosecutor believes they are illegal aliens unable to posses firearms.
August 24th in Wallowa County the Blue Mountain Enforcement Narcotics Team (BENT) and other law enforcement agencies busted a 10,300 plant marijuana grow and arrested Manuel Carrazco-Mendoza and Francisco Gallardo-Carrasco. Both men had immigration holds place on them by ICE agents.
September 7th in Yamhill County the Yamhill County Interagency Narcotics team (YINT) busted a 569 plant marijuana grow and arrested Leobardo Medoza-Gonzalez, Antonio Gomez Verduzco, and Jamie Villa Verduzco. All three men had immigration holds place on them by ICE agents.
Doing the math, three major marijuana busts, eleven arrests, all the men involved were suspected by federal law enforcement officials as being foreign nationals.
Lars, the first full week of October, and three different criminal alien reports for your KXL 101.1 radio listeners.
