Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
April 5, 2012
It has been an interesting first week in the month of April when it comes to criminal aliens here in the State of Oregon.
Tuesday, April 3rd, the Clackamas County Jail in Oregon City, Oregon had 20 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 4.61% 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. Three of the 20 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Clackamas County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 15.00% of the alien jail population (methamphetamine, and marijuana).
Thursday, April 5th, the Jackson County Jail in Medford, Oregon had 12 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 5.22% of the jail population U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally. Four of the 12 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Jackson County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 33.33% of the alien jail population (cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine).
This week we have a criminal alien of the week story to update your radio listeners from 2007.
Friday, February 3rd, 25-year-old Mexican national Gilberto Javier Arellano-Gamboa was turned over to U.S. DHS–ICE agents by Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) officials after severing a of 70 month prison term in the DOC prison system for his part in the death of 15-year old Dani Countryman in Clackamas County on July 28, 2007.
A look back in time, Arellano-Gamboa pleaded guilty on July 7, 2009 in a Clackamas County circuit court to first-degree sexual abuse and hindering prosecution for his connection to the death of Countryman.
His cousin, also a Mexican national, Alejandro Emeterio Rivera-Gamboa pleaded guilty on September 16, 2008 in a Clackamas County circuit court to aggravated murder and abuse of a corpse and was sentenced to life in prison, with the possibility of parole after 35 years for his connection to the death of Countryman.
A still troubling fact, Rivera-Gamboa had two outstanding drunken driving charges and had been in the custody of the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Department twice and released before he would go to kill the girl.
If anything good can come out of the death of a 15-year old girl, Dani Countryman’s death at the hands of illegal aliens motivated the Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts to sign up the Clackamas County Jail to use the U.S. DHS–ICE Secure Communities program to check the immigration status of all prisoners incarcerated at the jail.
The repercussions of Countryman’s death being caused by an illegal alien with prior criminal history were so great that now all 36 Oregon counties are now using the U.S. DHS–ICE Secure Communities program.
Lars, the first week of April, and three different criminal alien reports for your KXL 101.1 radio listeners.
