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.
