As a group, for the seven months of 2013, the preceding 10 county correctional facilities and jails incarcerated an average of 148.43 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 156 criminal aliens incarcerated in the preceding 10 correctional facilities and jails, 45 or 28.85 percent of those criminal aliens were charged with some type of driving crime or violation.
Second, let us look at drug crimes; of the 156 criminal aliens incarcerated in the preceding 10 correctional facilities and jails, 26 or 16.67 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; sixof the 45 criminal aliens or 13.33 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 (http://www.protectoregondl.org or http://www.protectoregondl.com) and download signature sheet, print it out, sign it, and mail their signature sheet to the petitioners.
