Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
July 26, 2012
It has been an interesting last full week in the month of July when it comes to criminal aliens here in the State of Oregon.
In July 2012, county correctional facilities and jails in Clackamas, Jackson, Linn, Lincoln, Marion, NORCOR, Polk, Umatilla, Washington, and Yamhill counties incarcerated 180 criminal aliens for various crimes that had United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally.
Clackamas County Jail with ICE Holds (7/05/12): 14
Jackson County Jail with ICE Holds (7/05/12): 18
Lincoln County Jail with ICE Holds (7/07/12): 4
Linn County Jail with ICE Holds (7/10/12): 5
Marion County Correctional Facility with ICE Holds (7/11/12): 43

Yamhill County Jail with ICE Holds (7/19/12): 9
Total ICE Holds: 180
(1) NORCOR, an acronym for Northern Oregon Regional Correction Facilities, incarcerates prisoners for Hood River, Wasco, Sherman, Gilliam, and Wheeler counties.
(2) Umatilla County Jail incarcerates prisoners for Umatilla and Morrow counties and Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.
As a group, for the seven months of 2012, the preceding 10 county correctional facilities and jails incarcerated an average of 165.43 criminal aliens per day with U.S. DHS–ICE Holds.
Because of Governor Kitzhaber wanting to give Oregon Drivers Licenses to illegal aliens and the Governor directing the Oregon State Police accept Mexican Matricula Consular Cards as identification at tariff stops, I evaluated how many of the 180 criminal aliens were charged with some type of driving crime or violation.
Of the 180 criminal aliens incarcerated in the preceding correctional facilities and jails, 44 (24.44 percent) of the criminal aliens were charged with some type of driving crime or violation.
