Marion County: A Dark Cloud of Foreign National Crime

Marion County: A Dark Cloud of Foreign National Crime

June 27, 2013

By David Olen Cross

Located in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Marion County is home to the state’s capital. The valley county’s major employers are government, agriculture, food processing, lumber, manufacturing and education. A very green place to live is the valley county, cloudy at times, where strong winter and spring storms blow in off the Pacific Ocean and drop an average annual rainfall of 35-inchs, it is a place that has a mild warm environment in the summer.

But over the last six years, a different type of storm cloud has been moving over this Willamette Valley county, a cloud that has nothing to do with the weather, it doesn’t seem to dissipate, a cloud that has changed the environment of a county that was once a safe place to live, call it a dark cloud of foreign national crime.

Some stark numbers from June 1st Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) data indicate the presence of this dark cloud; cases adjudicated in Marion County Circuit Courts sent 287 of the 1,198 foreign nationals (prisoners with immigration detainers) to serve time in the DOC prison system.

Putting the preceding numbers into perspective, Marion County’s 320 thousand residents are approximately 8.4 percent of Oregon’s population of 3.831 million, yet the county’s residents have suffered 24.0 percent of the foreign national crime; these statistics place Marion, the states fifth most populous county, number one in foreign crime taking into account all of the state’s 36 counties.

This dark storm cloud of crime, now well defined, has moved primarily from south to north up the valley and is formed by foreign national criminals from at least 22 countries; but the storm cloud of crime’s greatest element are 251 of the 287 foreign nationals now in DOC prisons who have declared their country of origin as Mexico; the cloud of crime being 87.4 percent Mexican nationals.

Marion County is literally the center of the storm of Mexican national crime in the state having 25.7 percent of the 977 Mexicans now in the DOC prison system.

The storm of crime that formed over nine-hundred miles plus to the south of Oregon’s border with California and moved north over the county has its victims: 28 drugs; 18 homicides; 39 rapes; 48 sex abuses; 22 sodomies; 15 kidnappings; 19 robberies 18 assaults; 7 burglaries; 5 driving offenses; 2 thefts; 1 vehicle theft and 29 other types crime.

This dark cloud of foreign national crime has victims who are more than just mere crime statistics; on June 16, 2007 Marion County Sherriff’s Deputy Kelley James Fredinburg, age 33, was killed in a traffic accident near Gervais while responding to a officer needs help call; Deputy Fredinburg’s alleged killer Alfredo De Jesus Ascencio, a Mexican national, has fled the country and is suspected by law enforcement authorities to be hiding in the area of Puacuaro, Michoacan, Mexico.

On April 16, 2012, Laurin Putnam, age 21, a resident of Keizer, was poisoned by a heroin overdose and died; Ms. Putnam’s alleged killers are Sergio Quezada Lopez, Braulio Acosta Mendoza, Jose Romo Gonzalez, Jose Aldan Soto and Julian Hernandez Castillo, all five of them Mexican nationals; they all await trial in a U.S. District Court in Portland in connection with the drugs that caused her death.

Evaluating the dark cloud of foreign national crime in the county, drug crimes may be the most destructive overall to the county’s residents.

Data from the Oregon High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Program (HITDA), 2013 Threat Assessment and Counter-Drug Strategy, report indicates most of the illicit drugs smuggled into the county are sourced from Mexican national drug trafficking organizations (DTOs).

Released June 4th, the Oregon Medical Examiner (OME) report indicated 19 deaths in 2012 that occurred in Marion County were caused by illicit drugs; the types of drugs by the numbers that killed 19 of the county’s residents last year were 10 from heroin, one from cocaine, 10 from methamphetamine or two from a combination of the preceding drugs; these drug death numbers equate to a 90 percent increase from 2011.

Beyond the human cost this storm of crime has left behind, there is an ongoing economic cost to the county’s residents who are state taxpayers; the cost for incarcerating 287 foreign nationals in the state’s prisons may approach 8.88 million dollars annually.

As recently as June 12th, the Marion County Correctional Facility (MCCF), the county jail, had 32 prisoners with federal immigration detainers incarcerated at the MCCF, a strong sign of those individuals may be in the country illegally; the annual cost to hold 32 foreign nationals at the jail is approximately 1.26 million dollars.

To dissipate the dark storm cloud of foreign national crime covering the county, the Marion County Commissioners and Marion County Sheriff’s Department should seek out any and all needed economic resources from both the state and federal government to fight foreign national crime in the county.

With so many inmates at the MCCF having federal immigration detainers on them, one place to start in seeking out economic resources would be for the Sheriff’s Department to open up jail beds and lease them to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE); the stationing of ICE agents at the jail would send a strong message to foreign national criminals that the county is no sanctuary for criminal aliens.

To reduce future drug deaths in the county, to keep the Mexican drug cartels in-check, to keep the drug cartels from easily distributing cartel drugs, drugs that are killing far too many of the county’s residents, the Commissioners and Sheriff’s Department should seek out or provide any additional resources needed by the Marion County Street Crimes Unit to enable them to better to enforce the state’s drug laws in the county.

Finally, the Marion County Commissioners and Marion Sheriff’s Department should put aside any concerns about increased enforcement of the laws of the state offending the county’s Hispanic community, many whom are undocumented residents, because far too many of those in their midst are the dark cloud of foreign national crime that continues to cover this Willamette Valley county.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

June 27, 2013

Lars:

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

In June 2013, county correctional facilities and jails in Clackamas, Jackson, Linn, Lincoln, Marion, NORCOR, Polk, Umatilla, Washington, and Yamhill counties incarcerated 145 criminal aliens for various crimes that had United States (U.S.) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents had identified as possibly being in the country illegally.

Clackamas County Jail with ICE Holds (6/10/13): 22

Jackson County Jail with ICE Holds (6/10/13): 10

Lincoln County Jail with ICE Holds (6/11/13): 2

Linn County Jail with ICE Holds (6/11/13): 5

Marion County Correctional Facility with ICE Holds (6/12/13): 32

NORCOR (1)  with ICE Holds (6/15/13): 3

Polk County Jail with ICE Holds (6/18/13): 5

Umatilla County Jail (2)  with ICE Holds (6/18/13): 12

Washington County Jail with ICE Holds (6/19/13): 51

Yamhill County Jail with ICE Holds (6/19/13): 3

Total ICE Holds: 145

(1) NORCOR, an acronym for Northern Oregon Regional Correction Facilities, incarcerates prisoners for Hood River, Wasco, Sherman and Gilliam counties.

(2) Umatilla County Jail incarcerates prisoners for Umatilla and Morrow counties and Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

As a group, for the three months of 2013, the preceding 10 county correctional facilities and jails incarcerated an average of 147.17 criminal aliens per day with U.S. DHS–ICE Holds.

This week let us take your radio listeners on an in depth look on the connection of illegal aliens being permitted to drive in the state and how that may connect to those alien’s ability to distribute drugs.

First, let us look at alien driving crimes; of the 145 criminal aliens incarcerated in the preceding 10 correctional facilities and jails, 37 or 25.52 percent of those criminal aliens were charged with some type of driving crime or violation.

Second, let us look at drug crimes; of the 145 criminal aliens incarcerated in the preceding 10 correctional facilities and jails, 32 or 22.10 percent of those criminal aliens were charged with some type of drug crime.

Often connected with illegal aliens charged with driving crimes or violations are those also charged with drug crimes; seven of the 37 criminal aliens 18.92 percent were charged with both driving and drug crimes.

If Lars Larson radio listeners who are registered Oregon voters want the opportunity to hinder illegal alien ability to drive and distribute illicit drugs in the state, your listeners 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).

Multnomah County: Mexican Drug Cartels Issue a Prescription of Death

Multnomah County: Mexican Drug Cartels Issue a Prescription of Death

June 21, 2013

By David Olen Cross

A well known fact, most of the illicit drugs killing Oregonians are produced, manufactured and smuggled into the state by drug cartels operating out of Mexico.

On June 4th the Oregon Medical Examiner (OME) reported 223 deaths in 2012 were caused by the illicit drugs; the preceding number of drug deaths being third highest number since 2002. The types of drugs by the numbers that killed 223 of the state’s residents last year were 147 from heroin, 19 from cocaine, 93 from methamphetamine or 33 from a combination of the preceding drugs.

When it came to illicit drug related deaths in the state last year, according to the OME, Multnomah County had the dubious distinction of leading all 36 Oregon counties with 103 illicit drug related deaths (80 heroin, 15 cocaine, 28 methamphetamine or 18 from a combination of drugs).

Putting these numbers into perspective, Multnomah County residents are approximately 19.05 percent of Oregon’s population of 3.83 million, yet the county experienced 46.13 percent of the state’s illicit drug deaths.

Not only last year, but over the last seven years Multnomah has led all Oregon counties in OME reported illicit drug related deaths by number and percentage:

– 2006 the county had 95 drug deaths (44.60 percent);
– 2007 the county had 101 drug deaths (47.64 percent);
– 2008 the county had 106 drug deaths (46.28 percent);
– 2009 the county had 94 drug deaths ( 44.13 percent);
– 2010 the county had 87 drug deaths (43.50 percent);
– 2011 the county had 119 drug deaths (49.58 percent);
– 2012 the county had 103 drug deaths (46.13 percent).

Totaling the preceding numbers from seven years of OME reports, Multnomah County had 705 of the 1,530 illicit drug related deaths recorded in the state; 46.08 percent of the states drug deaths.

Moving beyond the OME report’s body counts, a look at the current Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison population gives a picture of who is most likely dealing the drugs killing the state’s residents.

On May 1st in the DOC prison system there were 166 foreign nationals (prisoners with immigration detainers) incarcerated for drug crimes, 151 of those prisoners declared their country of origin being Mexico, that’s 91.00 percent of the foreign nationals in prison for drug crimes.

Locally, cases adjudicated in Multnomah County Circuit Courts have sent 46 Mexican nationals (30.46 percent of Mexicans convicted in the state for drug crimes) to serve time in DOC prisons.

A reasonable solution, to reduce future drug deaths, to keep the Mexican drug cartels in-check, to keep the drug cartels from easily distributing cartel drugs, drugs that are killing far too many of the county’s residents, Multnomah County’s elected officials, the county commissioners and sheriff, shouldn’t equivocate about providing the resources to enforce of the state’s drug laws.

Furthermore, the county commissioners and sheriff should put aside any pretense of political correctness about offending the county’s Hispanic community, many whom are  undocumented residents, and fully cooperate with all federal law enforcement agencies, like Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agency, because the illicit drugs poisoning and killing the county’s residents don’t discriminate against any one community’s race, religion, country of origin or immigration status.

Wednesday, June 19th, the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon had 51 criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 8.92% of the jail population the U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the country illegally. Eight of the 51 criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Washington County Jail were involved in some type of drug crime, 15.69% of the alien jail population (Methamphetamine, Cocaine and Marijuana).

Wednesday, June 19th, the Yamhill County Jail in McMinnville, Oregon had three criminal aliens incarcerated at the jail, 1.90% of the jail population U.S. DHS–ICE agents had identified as possibly being in the country illegally. One of the three criminal aliens with U.S. DHS–ICE holds at the Yamhill County Jail was involved in some type of drug crime, 33.33% of the alien jail population (Racketeering).

This week we have news update for your radio listeners on the search for the alleged killer of Marion County Sheriff’s Deputy Kelly James Fredinburg and Ocar Ascencio-Amaya; Sunday the 16th marked the six year anniversary in the death of both men.

Some history, Marion County Sheriff’s Deputy Fredinburg was responding to an officer needs help call on Highway 99E near Gervais, Oregon when a car driven by Alfredo De Jesus Ascencio allegedly failed to yield the right away to the responding officer and crashed head-on into the Deputy’s patrol car killing Fredinburg. Ocar Ascencio-Amaya, who also died from injuries sustained in the accident, was a passenger in the car driven by De Jesus Ascencio.

As a result of the accident and investigation that followed, Alfredo De Jesus Ascencio was charged with two counts of criminally negligent homicide.

To avoid taking responsibility for the death of the two men, Alfredo De Jesus Ascencio, a Mexcan national, fled the country and is suspected by law enforcement authorities to be hiding in the area of Puacuaro, Michoacan, Mexico.

Currently there is a $20,000.00 reward being offered by the “Oregon Officers Reward Fund” to locate Alfredo De Jesus Ascencio and bring him to justice.

For your listeners wanting to help locate Alfredo De Jesus Ascencio, the now wanted fugitive, they can go to the “Oregon Officers Reward Fund” website and make a contribution (www.oorf.info).

A little bit of driving history on Alfredo De Jesus Ascencio, remember this was 2007, prior to the fatal accident that took the lives of two men; De Jesus Ascencio’s Oregon Driver License (ODL) had been suspended on March 15, 2006; his ODL was reinstated on April 10, 2007; at the time of the June 16, 2007 accident, he had a valid ODL but no automobile insurance.
