Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

September 26, 2013

Lars:

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

In September 2013, county correctional facilities and jails in Clackamas, Jackson, Linn, Lincoln, Marion, NORCOR, Polk, Umatilla, Washington, and Yamhill counties incarcerated 185 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 (9/10/13): 22

Jackson County Jail with ICE Holds (9/10/13): 16

Lincoln County Jail with ICE Holds (9/10/13): 6

Linn County Jail with ICE Holds (9/11/13): 6

Marion County Correctional Facility with ICE Holds (9/11/13): 29

NORCOR (1)  with ICE Holds (9/16/13): 8

Polk County Jail with ICE Holds (9/16/13): 5

Umatilla County Jail (2)  with ICE Holds (9/16/13): 15

Washington County Jail with ICE Holds (9/17/13): 71

Yamhill County Jail with ICE Holds (9/17/13): 7

Total ICE Holds: 185

(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 nine months of 2013, the preceding 10 county correctional facilities and jails incarcerated an average of 153.00 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 185 criminal aliens incarcerated in the preceding 10 correctional facilities and jails, 42 or 22.70 percent of those criminal aliens were charged with some type of driving crime or violation.

Second, let us look at drug crimes; of the 185 criminal aliens incarcerated in the preceding 10 correctional facilities and jails, 29 or 15.67 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; six of the 42 criminal aliens or 14.28 percent were charged with some type of driving crime or violation and a drug crime.

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,” SB 833 referendum (#301), website (http://www.protectoregondl.org/ or http://www.protectoregondl.com) and download a signature sheet, print it out, sign it, and mail their signature sheet to the referendum’s petitioners before the October 1st deadline.

Lars, the last full week of September and another criminal alien report for Lars Larson Show F.M. 101.1 radio listeners.

U.S. Senate’s immigration legislation hurts Arizona’s unemployed

U.S. Senate’s immigration legislation hurts Arizona’s unemployed

September 20, 2013

By David Olen Cross

Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, both know as members of the “Gang of Eight,” voting for the passage of Senate Bill 744 (S.744), termed comprehensive immigration reform by some, amnesty by others, is unconscionable considering the United States’ July seasonally adjusted number of 12.1 million unemployed citizens; 7.4 percent of the country’s civilian labor force.

According to the “February 1, 2011 Pew Hispanic Center, Unauthorized Immigrant Population: National and State Trends, 2010” there are 8.0 million unauthorized workers in the U.S.

With so many unemployed American citizens looking for jobs and 8.0 million unauthorized workers currently holding the jobs many citizens will do, the U.S. Senate’s legislation at best seems oblivious to the plight of the unemployed in this country.

Two of the negative consequences of S.744 are revealed in a June 2013 Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report which indicates the legislation will cause unemployment to increase through 2020 and average wages to decline through 2025.

An evaluation of the seasonally adjusted unemployment numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), U.S. Department of Labor, News Release from August 19, 2013 titled “Regional and State Employment and Unemployment — July” reveals unemployment rates in the states represented by the “Gang of Eight”: Arizona, 8.0 percent; Colorado, 7.1 percent; Florida, 7.1 percent; Illinois, 9.2 percent; New Jersey, 8.6 percent; New York, 7.5 percent; and South Carolina, 8.1 percent. Five of the preceding seven gang member states had a higher percentage of unemployed than the national average.

Apparently, when Senators McCain and Flake have returned home from Washington D.C. to Arizona over the last five years they have failed to take a look at the number of unemployed in the state.

The BLS reported 241,700 citizens were unemployed in July; the state ranked 10th tied with Oregon for the percentage of unemployed.

Back to the Pew Hispanic Center report: according to the Pew report, there are an estimated 230,000 unauthorized workers in Arizona; 7.4 percent of the state’s total labor force.

If S.744 is passed by both sides of congress and signed into law by the president, the addition of 230,000 unauthorized workers into the state’s civilian labor force, if the CBO report is right, will likely increase unemployment in Arizona. This would be a setback for a state still mired and struggling to come out of a severe recession.

The U.S. House of Representatives will hopefully take a more incremental approach to any type of immigration reform and first pass standalone legislation requiring a federally mandated national employment verification system like E-Verify, which the federal government currently uses on all its new hires.

As Congress returns from its recess, Arizona’s 241,700 unemployed U.S. citizens should contact Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, along with all the state’s Reps., Ron Barber, Trent Franks, Paul Gosar, Raul Grijalva, Ann Kirkpatrick, Ed Pastor, Matt Salmon, David Schweikert and Kyrsten Sinema, and tell them Arizonians should never have to compete for scarce jobs now or in the future with persons illegally in the country; and furthermore, the U.S. Congress passing a standalone federally mandated E-Verify system is best way to get those unemployed in the state and across the country back to fulltime work.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, know as member of the “Gang of Eight,” voting for the passage of Senate Bill 744 (S.744), termed comprehensive immigration reform by some, amnesty by others, is unconscionable considering the United States’ July seasonally adjusted number of 12.1 million unemployed citizens; 7.4 percent of the country’s civilian labor force.

Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, along with all the state’s Reps., James Clyburn, Jeff Duncan, Trey Gowdy, Mick Mulvaney, Tom Rice, Mark Sanford and Joe Wilson, and tell them South Carolinians should never have to compete for scarce jobs now or in the future with persons illegally in the country; and furthermore, the U.S. Congress passing a standalone federally mandated E-Verify system is best way to get those unemployed in the state and across the country back to fulltime work.

Florida Sens.

Apparently, when Sens. Rubio and Nelsen have returned home from Washington D.C. to Florida over the last three years they have failed to take a look at the number of unemployed in the state.

The BLS reported 665,300 citizens in the state were unemployed in July.

Back to the Pew Hispanic Center report: according to the Pew report, there are an estimated 600,000 unauthorized workers in Florida; 6.6 percent of the state’s total labor force.

As Congress returns from its recess, Florida’s 665,300 unemployed U.S. citizens should contact Sens.

Tennessee Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker both voting for the passage of Senate Bill 744 (S.744), termed comprehensive immigration reform by some, amnesty by others, is unconscionable considering the United States’ July seasonally adjusted number of 12.1 million unemployed citizens; 7.4 percent of the country’s civilian labor force.

According to the “February 1, 2011 Pew Hispanic Center, Unauthorized Immigrant
Population: National and State Trends, 2010” there are 8.0 million unauthorized

state ranked 7th nationally for percentage of unemployed at 8.5 percent, tied with
its Northern neighbor Kentucky.
