Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

December 6, 2012

Lars:

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated November 1, 2012 DOC indicated there were 14,232 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s November 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,240 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,240 criminal aliens incarcerated on November 1st by DOC had United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), detainers. The U.S. DHS–ICE is responsible for indentifying whether a DOC inmate is a criminal alien or a domestic inmate. If an inmate is identified as being a criminal alien, at U.S. DHS–ICE’s request, the DOC places an “ICE detainer” on the inmate that directs DOC officials to transfer custody to ICE following completion of the inmate’s state sanction.

Criminal aliens made up approximately 8.71% of the DOC November 1st prison population.

Comparing DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers from November 1, 2007 (1,001 criminal aliens) and November 1, 2012 (1,240 criminal aliens), the DOC prison system incarcerated 239 criminal aliens more than it did on November 1, 2007, a 23.88% increase.

From November 1st 2007 – 2012 the DOC prison population grew by 681 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 33.15% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,240 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%), 15-Benton (1.21%), 88-Clackamas (7.10%), 7-Clatsop (0.56%), 2-Columbia (0.16%), 9-Coos (0.72%), 3-Crook (0.24%), 0-Curry (0.00%), 19-Deschutes (1.53%), 5-Douglas (0.40%), 1-Gilliam (0.08%), 0-Grant (0.00%), 2-Harney (0.16%), 7-Hood River (0.56%), 50-Jackson (4.03%), 12-Jefferson (0.97%), 7-Josephine (0.56%), 10-Klamath (0.81%), 0-Lake (0.00), 68-Lane (5.48%), 8-Lincoln (0.64%), 29-Linn (2.34%), 11-Malheur (0.89%), 283-Marion (22.82%), 7-Morrow (0.56%), 286-Multnomah (23.06%), 1-OOS (0.08%), 19-Polk (1.53%), 0-Sherman (0.00%), 3-Tillamook (0.24%), 21-Umatilla (1.69%), 2-Union (0.16), 0-Wallowa (0.00%), 4-Wasco (0.32%), 227-Washington (18.31%), 0-Wheeler (0.00%), and 34-Yamhill (2.74%).

Your listeners should be aware the types of crime committed against their fellow Oregonians by the 1,240 criminal aliens.

A review of the 1,240 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 4-arsons (0.32%), 131-assaults (10.56%), 27-burglaries (2.18%), 30-driving offenses (2.42%), 174-drugs (14.03%), 1-escape (0.08%), 4-forgeries (0.32%), 150-homicides (12.10%), 50-kidnappings (4.03%), 70-others (5.64%), 175-rapes (14.11%), 79-robberies (6.37%), 231-sex abuses (18.63%), 94-sodomies (7.58%), 13-thefts (1.05%), and 7-vehicle thefts (0.56%).

Lars Larson Show listeners should also be aware of the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,240 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,240 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 8-Canada (0.64%), 11-Cuba (0.89%), 17-El Salvador (1.37%), 32-Guatemala (2.58%), 13-Honduras (1.05%), 8-Laos (0.64%), 1,017-Mexico (82.02%), 97-others (7.82%), 6-Russia (0.48%), 13-Ukraine (1.05%), and 18-Vietnam (1.45%).

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens pose high economic cost on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner in the DOC prison system costs approximately ($84.81) per day to incarcerate (See link).

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 1,240 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($105,164.40) per day, ($736,150.80) per week, and ($38,385,006.00) per year.

None of the preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,240 criminal aliens include the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), court costs, nor cost estimates to cover victim assistance.

An unfortunate fact, the State of Oregon is not fully cooperating with the U.S. DHS–ICE to fight crime committed by criminal aliens who reside in Oregon.

In year 2007, a United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) report titled “Cooperation of SCAAP (State Criminal Alien Assistance Program) Recipients in the Removal of Criminal Aliens from the United States, U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General Audit Division, Audit Report 07-07, October 2007, Redacted-Public Version” identified the State of Oregon as having an official “state sanctuary statute,” ORS 181.850 Enforcement of federal immigration laws.

The USDOJ, the federal governments top law enforcement agency, identified Oregon as a “sanctuary” for criminal aliens.

The State of Oregon should no longer be classified by U.S. federal government law enforcement as having an official “state sanctuary statute” for criminal aliens, nor should Oregon be a sanctuary for criminal aliens to kill, rape, or maim Oregonians.

Criminal Aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections Prison System

Criminal Aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections Prison System

November 30, 2012

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated November 1, 2012 DOC indicated there were 14,232 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s November 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,240 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,240 criminal aliens incarcerated on November 1st by DOC had United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), detainers. The U.S. DHS–ICE is responsible for indentifying whether a DOC inmate is a criminal alien or a domestic inmate. If an inmate is identified as being a criminal alien, at U.S. DHS–ICE’s request, the DOC places an “ICE detainer” on the inmate that directs DOC officials to transfer custody to ICE following completion of the inmate’s state sanction.

Criminal aliens made up approximately 8.71% of the DOC November 1st prison population.
Comparing DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers from November 1, 2007 (1,001 criminal aliens) and November 1, 2012 (1,240 criminal aliens), the DOC prison system incarcerated 239 criminal aliens more than it did on November 1, 2007, a 23.88% increase.

When comparing DOC domestic criminal incarceration numbers from November 1, 2007 (12,510 domestic criminals) and November 1, 2012 (12,992 domestic criminals), the DOC prison system incarcerated 482 domestic criminals more than it did on November 1, 2007, a 3.85% increase.

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from November 1st 2007 – 2012, the DOC prison population grew by 681 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 33.15% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,240 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%), 15-Benton (1.21%), 88-Clackamas (7.10%), 7-Clatsop (0.56%), 2-Columbia (0.16%), 9-Coos (0.72%), 3-Crook (0.24%), 0-Curry (0.00%), 19-Deschutes (1.53%), 5-Douglas (0.40%), 1-Gilliam (0.08%), 0-Grant (0.00%), 2-Harney (0.16%), 7-Hood River (0.56%), 50-Jackson (4.03%), 12-Jefferson (0.97%), 7-Josephine (0.56%), 10-Klamath (0.81%), 0-Lake (0.00), 68-Lane (5.48%), 8-Lincoln (0.64%), 29-Linn (2.34%), 11-Malheur (0.89%), 283-Marion (22.82%), 7-Morrow (0.56%), 286-Multnomah (23.06%), 1-OOS (0.08%), 19-Polk (1.53%), 0-Sherman (0.00%), 3-Tillamook (0.24%), 21-Umatilla (1.69%), 2-Union (0.16), 0-Wallowa (0.00%), 4-Wasco (0.32%), 227-Washington (18.31%), 0-Wheeler (0.00%), and 34-Yamhill (2.74%).

No member of the Oregon State Legislature should forget the uncounted crime victims and their families, no matter what their immigration status, all victims of the 1,240 criminal aliens incarcerated in DOC prisons.

A review of the 1,240 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 4-arsons (0.32%), 131-assaults (10.56%), 27-burglaries (2.18%), 30-driving offenses (2.42%), 174-drugs (14.03%), 1-escape (0.08%), 4-forgeries (0.32%), 150-homicides (12.10%), 50-kidnappings (4.03%), 70-others (5.64%), 175-rapes (14.11%), 79-robberies (6.37%), 231-sex abuses (18.63%), 94-sodomies (7.58%), 13-thefts (1.05%), and 7-vehicle thefts (0.56%).

Oregon State Legislators should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,240 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,240 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 8-Canada (0.64%), 11-Cuba (0.89%), 17-El Salvador (1.37%), 32-Guatemala (2.58%), 13-Honduras (1.05%), 8-Laos (0.64%), 1,017-Mexico (82.02%), 97-others (7.82%), 6-Russia (0.48%), 13-Ukraine (1.05%), and 18-Vietnam (1.45%).

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens pose high economic cost on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner in the DOC prison system costs approximately ($84.81) per day to incarcerate (See link).

http://www.oregon.gov/DOC/PUBAFF/docs/pdf/IB_53_quick_facts.pdf

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 1,240 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($105,164.40) per day, ($736,150.80) per week, and ($38,385,006.00) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2011 United States Federal Government State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $2,669,738.00 if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2012, the cost to incarcerate 1,240 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($35,715,268.00) (See link).

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,240 criminal aliens include the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), court costs, nor cost estimates to cover victim assistance.

An unfortunate fact, the State of Oregon is not fully cooperating with the U.S. DHS–ICE to fight crime committed by criminal aliens who reside in Oregon.

http://www.usdoj.gov/oig/reports/OJP/a0707/final.pdf

The USDOJ, the federal governments top law enforcement agency, identified Oregon as a “sanctuary” for criminal aliens.

An Oregon law, Oregon Revised Statue 181.850 (ORS 181.850), Section (1), prohibits Oregon law enforcement (Oregon State Police (OSP), county sheriffs, city police departments) from asking immigration status of anyone residing in the State of Oregon “for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.” Under ORS 181.850, Section (2), Oregon law enforcement may exchange information with U.S. DHS–ICE . . . “in order to: Subsection (a), “Verify the immigration status of a person if the person is arrested for any criminal offense;” or, Subsection (b), “Request criminal investigation information with reference to persons named in records of the” U.S. DHS–ICE . . . (See link).

http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/181.html

The State of Oregon should no longer be classified by U.S. federal government law enforcement as having an official “state sanctuary statute” for criminal aliens, nor should Oregon be a sanctuary for criminal aliens to kill, rape, or maim Oregonians.

Oregonians should contact their Oregon State Senator and Representative serving in the Oregon State Legislature and ask them to reintroduce, support and pass legislation like HB 2803 (legislation offered during the 2011 session) that fights alien crime during in the next legislative session.

2012 Oregon Commission on Public Safety (Criminal Aliens)

2012 Oregon Commission on Public Safety (Criminal Aliens)

December 3, 2012

Oregon Commission on Public Safety
885 Summer Street NE
Salem, OR 97301

Honorable Commission on Public Safety Members:

After I read “The Pew Center on the States, Oregon Corrections Costs July 23, 2012”, apparently done for and presented to the Public Safety Commission, I found the report lacked important information on where Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison population growth had occurred over the last half-a-decade and where the prison population was growing at the greatest rate so I did some research into DOC prison system.

According to the DOC Inmate Population Profile dated October 1, 2012 DOC indicated there were 14,234 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s October 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,242 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,242 criminal aliens incarcerated on October 1st by DOC had United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), detainers. The U.S. DHS–ICE is responsible for indentifying whether a DOC inmate is a criminal alien or a domestic inmate. If an inmate is identified as being a criminal alien, at U.S. DHS–ICE’s request, the DOC places an “ICE detainer” on the inmate that directs DOC officials to transfer custody to ICE following completion of the inmate’s state sanction.

Criminal aliens made up approximately 8.72% of the DOC October 1st prison population.

Comparing DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers from October 1, 2007 (985 criminal aliens) and October 1, 2012 (1,242 criminal aliens), the DOC prison system incarcerated 257 criminal aliens more than it did on October 1, 2007, a 26.09% increase.

When comparing DOC domestic criminal incarceration numbers from October 1, 2007 (12,568 domestic criminals) and October 1, 2012 (12,992 domestic criminals), the DOC prison system incarcerated 424 domestic criminals more than it did on October 1, 2007, a 3.37% increase.

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from October 1st 2007 – 2012, the DOC prison population grew by 681 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 37.74% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,242 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%), 14-Benton (1.13%), 91-Clackamas (7.33%), 7-Clatsop (0.56%), 2-Columbia (0.16%), 8-Coos (0.64%), 3-Crook (0.24%), 0-Curry (0.00%), 19-Deschutes (1.53%), 5-Douglas (0.40%), 1-Gilliam (0.08%), 0-Grant (0.00%), 2-Harney (0.16%), 7-Hood River (0.56%), 50-Jackson (4.02%), 12-Jefferson (0.97%), 7-Josephine (0.56%), 11-Klamath (0.88%), 0-Lake (0.00), 67-Lane (5.39%), 8-Lincoln (0.64%), 29-Linn (2.33%), 11-Malheur (0.88%), 282-Marion (22.70%), 7-Morrow (0.56%), 286-Multnomah (23.03%), 1-OOS (0.08%), 19-Polk (1.53%), 0-Sherman (0.00%), 3-Tillamook (0.24%), 21-Umatilla (1.69%), 2-Union (0.16), 0-Wallowa (0.00%), 4-Wasco (0.32%), 229-Washington (18.44%), 0-Wheeler (0.00%), and 34-Yamhill (2.74%).

No Commission on Public Safety Member should forget the uncounted crime victims and their families, no matter what their immigration status, all victims of the 1,242 criminal aliens incarcerated in DOC prisons.

A review of the 1,242 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 4-arsons (0.32%), 129-assaults (10.39%), 28-burglaries (2.25%), 28-driving offenses (2.25%), 175-drugs (14.09%), 1-escape (0.08%), 4-forgeries (0.32%), 153-homicides (12.32%), 50-kidnappings (4.02%), 71-others (5.72%), 175-rapes (14.09%), 79-robberies (6.36%), 233-sex abuses (18.76%), 93-sodomies (7.49%), 12-thefts (0.97%), and 7-vehicle thefts (0.56%).

Commission on Public Safety Members should not overlook at the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,242 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,242 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 8-Canada (0.64%), 11-Cuba (0.88%), 17-El Salvador (1.37%), 31-Guatemala (2.49%), 12-Honduras (0.97%), 8-Laos (0.64%), 1,018-Mexico (81.96%), 99-others (7.97%), 6-Russia (0.48%), 14-Ukraine (1.13%), and 18-Vietnam (1.45%).

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens pose high economic cost on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner in the DOC prison system costs approximately ($84.81) per day to incarcerate.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 1,242 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($105,334.02) per day, ($737,338.14) per week, and ($38,446,917.30) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2011 United States Federal Government State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $2,669,738.00 if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2012, the cost to incarcerate 1,242 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($35,777,179.30).

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,242 criminal aliens include the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), court costs, nor cost estimates to cover victim assistance.

Commission on Public Safety Members, I recommend the Commission members review where DOC prison population growth has occurred over the last half-a-decade, domestic versus criminal alien prisoners, and discuss at a future commission meeting how to mitigate the increasing cost of incarceration of criminal aliens in the DOC prison system.

Respectfully,

David Olen Cross
