ORP Endorses Referendum Against Oregon Driver Privilege Card for Illegal Aliens

ORP Endorses Referendum Against Oregon Driver Privilege Card for illegal aliens

By Suzanne Gallagher
Chair, Oregon Republican Party

All Oregonians who believe in the rule of law should be outraged by the recent passage of Senate Bill 833, providing a 4-year Oregon Driver Privilege Card for illegal aliens. Oregon Democratic Senators and Representatives voted unanimously in favor. Governor Kitzhaber signed SB833 into law at a May Day Rally on the Capitol steps.

Representatives Kim Thatcher (R-Keizer) and Sal Esquivel (R-Medford), and Oregonians for Immigration Reform Vice-President Richard LaMountain have filed a Referendum.

If Protect Oregon Driver Licenses successfully collects 58,142 valid signatures within 90 days of the close of the 2013 legislative session, voters will decide whether granting Driver Privilege Cards to illegal aliens is a good or bad idea. The following facts are compelling:

Public Safety – The salient tool necessary for subversive terrorist acts is a valid state driver license. No wonder the 911 Commission recommended states secure driver licenses.

Voter Integrity – According to current Oregon law, non-citizens can easily vote in local and state elections. If Secretary of State Kate Brown is successful in passing Universal Voter Registration, illegal aliens will vote.

Taxpayer Cost – FAIR estimates that the annual cost to Oregon taxpayers for government services to illegal aliens, after any income tax revenue from them, is $1 Billion.

The Oregon Republican Party Platform supports enforcement of immigration laws and the security of US borders. Giving Driver Privilege Cards to individuals in our country illegally is in contradiction with this.

Time is short! If you are interested in signing the referendum allowing voters the opportunity to decide if this law is right for Oregon, you may receive a single line signature sheet at www.protectoregondl.org.

If you wish to support this important cause and help gather signatures, please contact Oregonians for Immigration Reform at ofir@oregonir.org and request a ten-line signature sheet packet.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

May 30 2013

Lars:

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated May 1, 2013 DOC indicated there were 14,396 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s May 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,195 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,195 criminal aliens incarcerated on April 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 8.30% of the DOC May 1st prison population.

Comparing DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers from May 1, 2008 (1,070 criminal aliens) and May 1, 2013 (1,195 criminal aliens), the DOC prison system incarcerated 125 criminal aliens more than it did on May 1, 2008, a 11.68% increase.

When comparing DOC domestic criminal incarceration numbers from May 1, 2008 (12,544 domestic criminals) and May 1, 2013 (13,201 domestic criminals), the DOC prison system incarcerated 657 domestic criminals more than it did on May 1, 2008, a 5.24% increase.

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from May 1st 2008 – 2013, the DOC prison population grew by 782 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 15.98% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,195 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%), 17-Benton (1.42%), 83-Clackamas (6.94%), 4-Clatsop (0.33%), 3-Columbia (0.25%), 9-Coos (0.75%), 3-Crook (0.25%), 0-Curry (0.00%), 17-Deschutes (1.42%), 6-Douglas (0.50%), 1-Gilliam (0.08%), 0-Grant (0.00%), 0-Harney (0.00%), 6-Hood River (0.50%), 52-Jackson (4.35%), 10-Jefferson (0.84%), 7-Josephine (0.58%), 11-Klamath (0.92%), 0-Lake (0.00), 60-Lane (5.02%), 8-Lincoln (0.67%), 27-Linn (2.26%), 11-Malheur (0.92%), 285-Marion (23.85%), 5-Morrow (0.42%), 274-Multnomah (22.93%), 1-OOS (0.08%), 18-Polk (1.51%), 0-Sherman (0.00%), 5-Tillamook (0.42%), 18-Umatilla (1.51%), 3-Union (0.25), 0-Wallowa (0.00%), 3-Wasco (0.25%), 218-Washington (18.24%), 0-Wheeler (0.00%), and 30-Yamhill (2.51%).

Your listeners should be aware the types of crime committed against their fellow Oregonians by the 1,195 criminal aliens.

A review of the 1,195 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 4-arsons (0.33%), 125-assaults (10.46%), 24-burglaries (2.01%), 30-driving offenses (2.51%), 166-drugs (13.89%), 1-escape (0.08%), 3-forgeries (0.25%), 146-homicides (12.22%), 50-kidnappings (4.18%), 65-others (5.44%), 170-rapes (14.22%), 76-robberies (6.36%), 223-sex abuses (18.66%), 92-sodomies (7.70%), 15-thefts (1.25%), and 5-vehicle thefts (0.42%).

Listeners should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,195 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,195 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 8-Canada (0.67%), 10-Cuba (0.84%), 16-El Salvador (1.34%), 33-Guatemala (2.76%), 16-Honduras (1.36%), 7-Laos (0.58%), 976-Mexico (81.67%), 9-Philippines (0.75%), 81-others (6.78%), 7-Russia (0.58%), 12-Ukraine (1.00%), and 20-Vietnam (1.67%).

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 1,195 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($101,347.95) per day, ($709,435.65) per week, and ($36,992,001.75) per year.

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,195 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.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

May 23, 2013

Lars:

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

Today let us look back over the last seven days at two significant trials of three criminal aliens in the state’s court system.

Friday, May 17th, in a Washington County Circuit Court, Jorge Reyes-Sanchez and Jose Guadalupe Cazares-Mendez (aka Leonardo Cruz-Casarez), who were convicted of aggravated murder, first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary and sentenced to life in prison for their role in connection to the 2005 screwdriver stabbing death of Jessie Mary Valero (a bit of history: their convictions were overturned on a technicality that occurred during their trials in 2011 by the Oregon Supreme Court), pled guilty to first degree manslaughter and they were resentenced to 10-years in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system.

Unfortunately for the victim’s family, Reyes-Sanchez and Cazares-Mendez will get credit for time served and be released from the DOC prison system some time in 2015.

Jorge Reyes-Sanchez and Jose Guadalupe Cazares-Mendez while incarcerated at the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon both had United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) holds place on them by U.S. DHS–ICE agents a strong indicator they are likely in the county illegally.

Also Friday, May 17th, in a Clackamas County Circuit Court, Victor Manuel Perez-Chi, who was convicted of felony murder, robbery and burglary and sentenced to life in prison for his role in connection with the 2005 shooting death of Francisco Javier Basto-Tuyub (a bit of history: his conviction was overturned on a technicality that occurred during his trial by an Oregon Court of Appeals), pled guilty to attempted murder and first–degree robbery and he was resentenced to 22-years in the DOC prison system.

Unfortunately for the victim’s wife and child in Mexico, Perez-Chi will get credit for time already served in the DOC prison system.

Victor Manuel Perez-Chi while incarcerated at the Clackamas County Jail in Oregon City, Oregon had a U.S. DHS–ICE hold placed on him by ICE agents a strong indicator he was likely in the county illegally.

Three criminal aliens committing so much violent crime against the residents of our state and they will all be serving far too little time in prison for those crimes.

Moving on, this week we have news update about the “Protect Oregon Driver Licenses” referendum (#301).

A reminder for you radio listeners, Senate Bill 833 was passed during the current 2013 Oregon State Legislature legislative session and signed into law by Governor John Kitzhaber that grants some form of Oregon driver privilege card to foreign nationals illegally in the country (illegal aliens).

Oregon State Rep. Kim Thatcher (HD-25) and Rep. Sal Esquivel (HD-6) two of the chief petitioners of the SB 833 referendum believe that on this important issue of whether or not illegal aliens should be able to drive in the state that Oregon voters should be able to make this important decision.

If Lars Larson listeners who are registered Oregon voters want the opportunity to be able decide whether or not illegal aliens should be allowed to drive in the state, they should go to the “Protect Oregon Driver Licenses” referendum website and download signature sheet, print it out, sign it, and mail their signature sheet to the referendum’s petitioners (See links).
