Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
February 14, 2013
It has been an interesting second full week in the month of February when it comes to criminal aliens here in the State of Oregon.
Thursday, February 14th, the Clackamas County Jail in Oregon City, Oregon had 15 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 3.46% of the jail population the United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), agents had identified as possibly being in the country illegally. Two of the 15 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Clackamas County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 13.33% of the alien jail population (Methamphetamine and Heroin).
Thursday, February 14th, the Jackson County Jail in Medford, Oregon had eight criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 3.48% of the jail population U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the country illegally. Three of the eight criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Jackson County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 37.50% of the alien jail population (Methamphetamine).
Moving on, a report from the Oregon House Committee on Higher Education and Workforce Development public hearing yesterday on House Bill 2787, instate tuition for international students illegally in the country.
At least 50 people showed up to testify against HB 2787, but Democratic Committee Chairman Michael Dembrow only allowed six opponents to testify against the legislation.
Representative Dembrow put opponents at the back of the bus by allowing legislators’ sponsoring the legislation and illegal international students to testify for 100 minutes of the two hour public hearing.
Proponents of HB 2787 call the legislation “tuition equity”.
At end of the public hearing for HB 2787, because of the limited public testimony offered to opponents of the legislation, I went up to Chairman Dembrow and shook his hand and looked him in the eye and said to Rep. Dembrow — “you call this testimony equity?”
