State report excluded data on criminal aliens

registerguard.com
GUEST VIEWPOINT: State report excluded data on criminal aliens

BY DAVID OLEN CROSS

Published: January 14, 2013 12:00AM, Today


The Oregon Commission on Public Safety’s final report to the governor, submitted on Dec. 17, lacked important information that had been submitted to commission members and staff over the last two years. This information concerns where growth in Oregon’s prison population growth had occurred over the last half decade.

The commission was created to find ways to bring rising corrections costs under control. This can’t be done without understanding where growth in the state Department of Corrections’ prison population is coming from. A substantial portion of this growth is related to illegal immigration. According to information obtained from a DOC Inmate Population Profile, published online monthly, on Oct. 1, 2012, there were 14,234 inmates in the state’s 14 prisons.

Not included in the population profile was data obtained from corrections staff showing that there were up to 1,242 foreign nationals in the state’s prison system. Criminal aliens made up approximately 8.7 percent state’s prison population.

These criminal aliens are inmates the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has identified as possibly being in the country illegally. The agency has requested that state corrections officials place “ICE detainers” on them so that the inmates will be transferred to ICE custody after completing their prison terms.

From Oct. 1, 2007, through Oct. 1, 2012, the Department of Corrections’ criminal alien inmate prison population grew by 257 prisoners — a 26.1 percent increase.

Over the same five-year period, the DOC’s domestic inmate prison population grew by 424 prisoners, a 3.4 percent increase.

Combining those numbers shows that over the past five years Oregon’s overall prison population grew by 681 inmates; criminal alien inmates accounted for 37.7 percent of this growth.

Criminal aliens in the state prison system were sentenced to serve time from 29 of 36 Oregon counties. Sixty-seven, or 5.4 percent of the total, came from Lane County. Multnomah County had the highest number — 286, or 23 percent. Marion and Washington counties were not far behind, with 282 and 229 respectively, accounting for 22.7 percent and 18 percent of criminal alien inmates. All other counties sent a combined total of 378 aliens to state prisons, or 30.1 percent of the total.

As significant as the number is of criminal aliens incarcerated in Oregon prisons is the number of crime victims involved. The Commission on Public Safety should have included this information in its report — 1,242 inmates means at least that number of victims, many of whom were victims of serious crimes requiring lengthy sentences under the voter-approved Measure 11 sentencing rules.

The 10 most common crime convictions of the criminal aliens in state prisons include 129 assaults (10.4 percent), 28 burglaries (2.2 percent), 28 driving offenses (2.2 percent) 175 drugs (14.1 percent) 153 homicides (12.3 percent) 50 kidnappings (4 percent), 175 rapes (14.1 percent), 79 robberies (6.4 percent) 233 cases of sex abuse (18.8 percent) and 93 cases of sodomy (7.5 percent). There were 99 other types of crimes (8.0 percent).

Furthermore, commission members should have included in their report more information on the demographics of the state prison population — who they are and where they’re from — including their countries of origin. Mexico is by far the most common self-declared country of origin, with 1,018 criminal alien inmates, or 82 percent of the total, claiming to be from that country. Others include 17 from El Salvador, 31 from Guatemala, 12 from Honduras, 14 from Ukraine, 18 from Vietnam and 132 from other countries.

Beyond providing criminal alien incarceration numbers — per county, per type of crime and per country of origin — the commission should have analyzed and made recommendations on how to mitigate the high cost that criminal alien inmates impose upon the state’s prison system.

Incarcerating a prisoner in the state Department of Corrections’ prison system costs approximately $84.81 per day.

The cost of incarcerating 1,242 criminal aliens is about $105,334 per day, $737,338 per week, or $38,446,917 per year.

The federal State Criminal Alien Assistance Program pays some of these costs, with an award of $2,669,738 in the 2011 fiscal year. If Oregon receives the same amount of federal funding in 2012, the net cost of incarcerating 1,242 criminal aliens in Oregon will be at least $35,777,179.

None of these cost estimates includes the money spent for legal services, indigent defense, court costs or victim assistance.

It is disappointing that the Commission on Public Safety didn’t have the time — or take the time — to analyze and incorporate this information in its report, particularly if the commission’s goal was to make cogent recommendations to Gov. John Kitzhaber and the Legislature on how to mitigate the future growth in the state’s inmate population and control the increasing cost of incarceration.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

January 10, 2013

Lars:

It has been an interesting second full week in the month of January when it comes to criminal aliens here in the State of Oregon.

This week we have an update on pair of criminal aliens we reported on to your radio listeners in early December 2012.

At a traffic stop on Saturday, December 8th, Oregon State Police (OSP) arrested Feliciano Ayala-Cardenas of San Jose, California and Sergio Gustazo Pineda-Villanueva of Aloha, Oregon on drug related charges.

During the traffic stop, the OSP found concealed in the SUV occupied by Ayala-Cardenas and Pineda-Villanueva three pounds of Methamphetamine and one pound of Heroin.

Both men were charged with Delivery of Methamphetamine and Possession of Methamphetamine, moreover, Delivery of Heroin and Possession of Heroin.

Since December 2012, Ayala-Cardenas and Pineda-Villanueva have been incarcerated at the Douglas County Jail where U.S. DHS–ICE agents have identified them as possibly being in the country illegally.

The resulting arrests of Feliciano Ayala-Cardenas and Sergio Gustazo Pineda-Villanueva have led the OSP and Polk County law enforcement officials to the take down of a major drug trafficking organization involving 11 individuals in Polk County.

Of the 11 individuals arrested for multiple drug crimes in Polk County, currently three, Roberto Ruiz-Sandoval, a resident of Independence; Jose Bertin Cruz-Estrada Rafael, also a resident of Independence; and Rafael Telliz-Solorzano, a resident of Monmouth; have been identified by ICE agents as possibly being in the country illegally.

Moving on, we have an educational opportunity for Lars Larson Show radio listeners concerning the “War on Drugs” our country currently faces.

On January 26th the Documentary Film “Drug Wars: Sliver or Lead” will be shown in Salem. A special opportunity will be made available to meet the film’s maker Gary “Rusty” Fleming.

Title: Drug Wars: Sliver or Lead
Showing: January 26th
Time: 1 – 4 P.M.
Location: Salem Public Library – Loucks Auditorium
Address: 585 Liberty St SE Salem, OR 97301

Oregon’s unemployed should not have to compete for jobs with 1.7 million undocumented foreign nationals

Oregon’s unemployed should not have to compete for jobs with 1.7 million undocumented foreign nationals

January 4, 2013

By David Olen Cross

President Barack Obama’s deferred deportation order on some 1.7 million undocumented foreign nationals (illegal aliens) between the ages of 16 and 30, in conjunction with issuing them Social Security numbers and work permits, shows a clear view of a President in complete willful disregard for America’s 11.7 million unemployed citizens; 7.9 percent of the civilian labor force.

The consequences of President Obama’s actions, the addition of 1.7 million illegal aliens into the nation’s civilian labor force (workers ages 16 years and older), could push unemployment up in the country by 14.5 percent.

An evaluation of the seasonally adjusted unemployment numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, News Release from November 20, 2012 titled “Regional and State Employment and Unemployment — October” revealed only 11 states had a higher unemployment rate than Oregon’s 8.6 percent: California, 10.1 percent; Connecticut, 9.0 percent; Georgia, 8.7 percent; Illinois, 8.8 percent; Michigan, 9.1 percent; Mississippi, 8.9 percent; Nevada, 11.5 percent; New Jersey, 9.7 percent; New York, 8.7 percent; North Carolina, 9.3 percent; and Rode Island, 10.4 percent.

In Oregon there were 159,439 citizens unemployed in October.

October unemployment numbers for Oregon’s three most populous counties were the following: Multnomah had 30,467 — 19.1 percent of the state’s unemployed; Washington had 19,870 — 12.5 percent of the state’s unemployed; and Clackamas had 15,010 — 9.4 percent of the state’s unemployed.

Beyond the three preceding metro counties, 28 of 36 Oregon counties — 77.8 percent of the states counties — in October had a higher unemployment rate than the national average of 7.9 percent: Baker, 9.8 percent; Columbia, 9.2 percent; Coos, 10.4 percent; Crook, 13.5 percent; Curry, 11.5 percent; Deschutes, 10.9 percent; Douglas, 11.9 percent; Gilliam, 8.5 percent; Grant, 13.6 percent; Harney, 12.4 percent; Jackson, 10.6 percent; Jefferson, 12.2 percent; Josephine, 11.9 percent; Klamath, 11.4 percent; Lake, 12.6 percent; Lane, 8.4 percent; Lincoln, 9.0 percent; Linn, 11.0 percent; Malheur, 9.9 percent; Marion, 9.4 percent; Morrow, 8.8 percent; Polk, 8.3 percent; Sherman, 8.6 percent; Tillamook, 8.3 percent; Umatilla, 8.2 percent; Union, 8.8 percent; Wallowa, 10.0 percent; and Yamhill, 8.3 percent.

A stark reality, 14 of the 28 preceding Oregon counties have double digit unemployment.

As recently as July, an analysis done by the Employment Policy Institute (EPI), a nonprofit Washington D.C. based research organization that focuses on job growth, indicated that Oregon ranked third in the nation with teen unemployment for ages 16 to 24 at 30.3 percent.

What President Obama’s deferred deportation order means to Oregon’s unemployed is up to 16,600 illegal aliens are being permitted to enter the state’s work force during the worst recession since the “Great Depression”.

According to a PEW Hispanic Center report dated February 1, 2011 titled “Unauthorized Immigrant Population: National and State Trends, 2010” in Oregon there were an estimated 110,000 unauthorized workers.

The addition of 16,600 illegal aliens into state’s civilian labor force could increase unemployment in Oregon by 10.4 percent.

The state’s elected officials like Governor John Kitzhaber should not cooperate with the Obama administration by allowing thousands of illegal aliens to enter the state’s workforce. Governor Kitzhaber can put a stop to many of these illegal aliens working in the state by not changing state law that currently requires legal presence in the country to obtain an Oregon Drivers License. Kitzhaber should know that Obama’s deferred deportation order doesn’t constitute legal presence for those persons illegally in the country.

Oregon’s 159,439 unemployed legal U.S. citizens should contact President Obama in the White House and communicate to the President unemployed American’s should never have to compete for scarce jobs with illegal aliens no matter what age they are or what demographic group they represent.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

January 3, 2012

Lars:

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated December 1, 2012 DOC indicated there were 14,240 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s December 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,236 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,236 criminal aliens incarcerated on December 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 8.68% of the DOC December 1st prison population.

Comparing DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers from December 1, 2007 (1,010 criminal aliens) and December 1, 2012 (1,236 criminal aliens), the DOC prison system incarcerated 226 criminal aliens more than it did on December 1, 2007, a 22.38% increase.

When comparing DOC domestic criminal incarceration numbers from December 1, 2007 (12,478 domestic criminals) and December 1, 2012 (13,004 domestic criminals), the DOC prison system incarcerated 526 domestic criminals more than it did on December 1, 2007, a 4.21% increase.

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from December 1st 2007 – 2012, the DOC prison population grew by 752 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 30.05% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,236 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%), 16-Benton (1.29%), 89-Clackamas (7.20%), 7-Clatsop (0.57%), 2-Columbia (0.16%), 9-Coos (0.73%), 3-Crook (0.24%), 0-Curry (0.00%), 18-Deschutes (1.46%), 5-Douglas (0.40%), 1-Gilliam (0.08%), 0-Grant (0.00%), 2-Harney (0.16%), 7-Hood River (0.57%), 51-Jackson (4.13%), 12-Jefferson (0.97%), 7-Josephine (0.57%), 10-Klamath (0.81%), 0-Lake (0.00), 68-Lane (5.50%), 8-Lincoln (0.65%), 29-Linn (2.35%), 11-Malheur (0.89%), 282-Marion (22.81%), 7-Morrow (0.57%), 282-Multnomah (22.81%), 1-OOS (0.08%), 19-Polk (1.54%), 0-Sherman (0.00%), 3-Tillamook (0.24%), 20-Umatilla (1.62%), 2-Union (0.16), 0-Wallowa (0.00%), 4-Wasco (0.32%), 227-Washington (18.36%), 0-Wheeler (0.00%), and 34-Yamhill (2.75%).

Your listeners should be aware the types of crime committed against their fellow Oregonians by the 1,236 criminal aliens.

A review of the 1,236 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 4-arsons (0.32%), 130-assaults (10.52%), 27-burglaries (2.18%), 32-driving offenses (2.59%), 167-drugs (13.51%), 1-escape (0.08%), 4-forgeries (0.32%), 148-homicides (11.97%), 49-kidnappings (3.96%), 69-others (5.58%), 180-rapes (14.56%), 78-robberies (6.31%), 234-sex abuses (18.93%), 94-sodomies (7.60%), 13-thefts (1.05%), and 6-vehicle thefts (0.48%).

Lars Larson Show listeners should also be aware of the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,236 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,236 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 8-Canada (0.65%), 10-Cuba (0.81%), 18-El Salvador (1.46%), 32-Guatemala (2.59%), 13-Honduras (1.05%), 8-Laos (0.65%), 1,016-Mexico (82.20%), 101-others (8.17%), 13-Ukraine (1.05%), and 17-Vietnam (1.37%).

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 1,236 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($104,825.16) per day, ($733,776.12) per week, and ($38,261,183.40) per year.

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,236 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 made up approximately 8.68% of the DOC December 1st prison population.

Comparing DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers from December 1, 2007 (1,010 criminal aliens) and December 1, 2012 (1,236 criminal aliens), the DOC prison system incarcerated 226 criminal aliens more than it did on December 1, 2007, a 22.38% increase.

When comparing DOC domestic criminal incarceration numbers from December 1, 2007 (12,478 domestic criminals) and December 1, 2012 (13,004 domestic criminals), the DOC prison system incarcerated 526 domestic criminals more than it did on December 1, 2007, a 4.21% increase.

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from December 1st 2007 – 2012, the DOC prison population grew by 752 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 30.05% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,236 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%), 16-Benton (1.29%), 89-Clackamas (7.20%), 7-Clatsop (0.57%), 2-Columbia (0.16%), 9-Coos (0.73%), 3-Crook (0.24%), 0-Curry (0.00%), 18-Deschutes (1.46%), 5-Douglas (0.40%), 1-Gilliam (0.08%), 0-Grant (0.00%), 2-Harney (0.16%), 7-Hood River (0.57%), 51-Jackson (4.13%), 12-Jefferson (0.97%), 7-Josephine (0.57%), 10-Klamath (0.81%), 0-Lake (0.00), 68-Lane (5.50%), 8-Lincoln (0.65%), 29-Linn (2.35%), 11-Malheur (0.89%), 282-Marion (22.81%), 7-Morrow (0.57%), 282-Multnomah (22.81%), 1-OOS (0.08%), 19-Polk (1.54%), 0-Sherman (0.00%), 3-Tillamook (0.24%), 20-Umatilla (1.62%), 2-Union (0.16), 0-Wallowa (0.00%), 4-Wasco (0.32%), 227-Washington (18.36%), 0-Wheeler (0.00%), and 34-Yamhill (2.75%).

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 1,236 criminal aliens incarcerated in DOC prisons.

A review of the 1,236 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 4-arsons (0.32%), 130-assaults (10.52%), 27-burglaries (2.18%), 32-driving offenses (2.59%), 167-drugs (13.51%), 1-escape (0.08%), 4-forgeries (0.32%), 148-homicides (11.97%), 49-kidnappings (3.96%), 69-others (5.58%), 180-rapes (14.56%), 78-robberies (6.31%), 234-sex abuses (18.93%), 94-sodomies (7.60%), 13-thefts (1.05%), and 6-vehicle thefts (0.48%).

Oregon State Legislators should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,236 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,236 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 8-Canada (0.65%), 10-Cuba (0.81%), 18-El Salvador (1.46%), 32-Guatemala (2.59%), 13-Honduras (1.05%), 8-Laos (0.65%), 1,016-Mexico (82.20%), 101-others (8.17%), 13-Ukraine (1.05%), and 17-Vietnam (1.37%).

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 1,236 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($104,825.16) per day, ($733,776.12) per week, and ($38,261,183.40) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2012 United States Federal Government State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $1,996,569.00 if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2013, the cost to incarcerate 1,236 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($36,264,614.40) (See link).

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,236 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, December 2007, Redacted-Public Version” identified the State of Oregon as having an official “state sanctuary statute,” ORS 181.850 Enforcement of federal immigration laws (See link).

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).

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.
