Three of the five criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at NORCOR were involved in some type of drug crime, 60.00% of the alien jail population (2-Methamphetamine and 1-Marijuana).

Wednesday, January 30th, the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon had 50 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 8.74% of the jail population the U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the county illegally.

Beyond alien crime, this week we jobs news for your radio listeners on E-Verify legislation currently before the 2013 Oregon State Legislature.
House Bill 2358 would simply require all state agencies to use the federal E-Verify system on all new hires (See link).
The co-sponsors HB 2358 are State Representatives. Kim Thatcher (HD-25), Keizer; Jim Weidner (HD-24), McMinnville; and Gene Whisnant (HD-53) Sun River.
With the state’s current unemployment rate at 8.4 percent, 161,254 Oregonians unemployed, the legal residents of the state should be at the very least first in line for an opportunity to work for the State of Oregon if and when a state job becomes available.
There are two things your radio listeners can do in support of HB 2358, state E-Verify legislation:
First, write a letter to their Oregon State Representative and Senator asking them to support the legislation;
