Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

April 19, 2012

Lars:

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

Tuesday, April 17th, Northern Oregon Regional Corrections (NORCOR) in The Dalles, had three criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 4.54% 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 three criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at NORCOR was involved in some type of drug crime, 33.33% of the alien jail population (methamphetamine).

Tuesday, April 17th, the Polk County Jail in Dallas, Oregon had four criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 2.73% of the jail population the U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally. None of the four criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Polk County Jail were involved any type of drug crime, 0.00% of the alien jail population.

Wednesday, April 18th, the Umatilla County Jail in Pendleton, Oregon had five criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 3.70% of the jail population the U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally. Two of the five criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at Umatilla County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 40.00% of the alien jail population (methamphetamine).

This week we don’t have a specific criminal alien of the week to report to your radio listeners so instead let us look back at the number of criminal aliens who were originally incarcerated in the preceding county jails or correctional facilities who were incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system in March 2012 (Note: NORCOR incarcerates prisoners for five counties and Umatilla incarcerates prisoners for two counties.)

Three counties, Gilliam, Hood River, and Wasco counties had 12 criminal aliens in DOC prisons; 0.93% of the DOC criminal alien prison population (Sherman and Wheeler had no criminal aliens in DOC prisons). None of the 12 criminal aliens (0.00 percent) were incarcerated for drug crimes.

Polk County had 23 criminal aliens in DOC prisons; 1.79% of the DOC criminal alien prison population. Four of the 23 criminal aliens (17.40 percent) were incarcerated for drug crimes; all four of them declared their country of origin Mexico.

Morrow and Umatilla counties had 30 criminal aliens in DOC prisons; 2.33% of the DOC criminal alien prison population. Five of the 30 criminal aliens (16.67 percent) were incarcerated for drug crimes; all five of them declared their country of origin Mexico.

A reminder to your radio listeners, the DOC prison system had 1,285 criminal aliens, a record number, incarcerated in March 2012; One-hundred-ninety of the 1,285 (14.78 percent) were incarcerated for drug crimes; One-hundred-seventy-six (92.63 percent) incarcerated for drug crimes declared their country of origin Mexico.

Lars, the third full week of April and four different criminal alien reports for Lars Larson show KXL 101.1 radio listeners.
