Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
October 25, 2012
It has been an interesting last full week in the month of October when it comes to criminal aliens here in the State of Oregon.
In October 2012, county correctional facilities and jails in Clackamas, Jackson, Linn, Lincoln, Marion, NORCOR, Polk, Umatilla, Washington, and Yamhill counties incarcerated 173 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 (10/08/12): 12
Jackson County Jail with ICE Holds (10/09/12): 13
Lincoln County Jail with ICE Holds (10/09/12): 7

(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 ten months of 2012, the preceding 10 county correctional facilities and jails incarcerated an average of 168.50 criminal aliens per day with U.S. DHS–ICE Holds.
Because of Governor Kitzhaber still wanting to give Oregon Drivers Licenses to illegal aliens and the Governor directing the Oregon State Police to accept Mexican Matricula Consular Cards as identification at tariff stops, I evaluated how many of the 173 criminal aliens were charged with some type of driving crime or violation.
Of the 173 criminal aliens incarcerated in the preceding correctional facilities and jails, 47 (27.17 percent) of the criminal aliens were charged with some type of driving crime or violation.
Often connected with alien’s charged with driving crimes or violations are the crimes of forgery and indentify theft, 17 of the 173 criminal aliens (9.83 percent) were changed with the two later criminal activities.
