Senate immigration bill would add to unemployment woes

The Register Guard
Senate immigration bill would add to unemployment woes

By David Olen Cross

Published: 12:00 a.m., Oct. 5

Oregon Sens. Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden have joined the Gang of Eight in supporting Senate Bill 744. The bill, termed comprehensive immigration reform by some and amnesty by others, is unconscionable legislation, considering that the seasonally adjusted number of unemployed U.S. citizens stood at 11.5 million in August — 7.3 percent of the civilian labor force.

According the Pew Hispanic Center’s 2011 report, “Unauthorized Immigrant Population: National and State Trends, 2010,” there are 8 million unauthorized workers in the United States.

With so many American citizens looking for work and 8 million unauthorized workers holding the jobs that many citizens will do, the Senate’s legislation seems oblivious at best to the plight of the unemployed.

Two negative consequences of SB 744 are revealed in a June report by the Congressional Budget Office, which indicates the legislation would cause unemployment to increase through 2020 and average wages to decline through 2025.

A Sept. 20 news release from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Regional and State Employment and Unemployment — August,” reveals unemployment rates in the states represented by the Gang of Eight, plus their Oregon sidekicks: Oregon, 8.1 percent; Arizona, 8.3 percent; Colorado, 7 percent; Florida, 7 percent; Illinois, 9.2 percent; New Jersey, 8.5 percent; New York, 7.6 percent; and South Carolina, 8.1 percent. Six of the eight states had unemployment rates higher than the national average.

When Merkley and Wyden returned home from Washington, D.C., this summer, they apparently failed to take a look at the number of unemployed in their state. The Oregon Department of Employment reported 150,259 citizens were unemployed in August; the state ranked 10th, tied with three others, for the percentage of unemployed.

Locally, Lane County’s 13,644 unemployed in August equaled 8 percent of the county’s work force and constituted 9.1 percent of the state’s unemployed.

Twenty-nine of 36 Oregon counties had higher unemployment rates in August than the national average of 7.3 percent, including Lane, Douglas and Coos counties. Twelve of those 29 counties had double-digit unemployment.

Back to the Pew Hispanic Center report, according to which there are an estimated 110,000 unauthorized workers in Oregon. If SB 744 becomes law and those 110,000 unauthorized workers are added to the state’s civilian labor force, the CBO report suggests that the state’s unemployment rate can be expected to increase. That would be a setback for a state still struggling to come out of a severe recession.

The U.S. House of Representatives should take a more incremental approach and first pass stand-alone legislation requiring a federally mandated national employment verification system such as E-Verify, which the federal government currently uses on all its new hires.

With Congress now back in session, Oregon’s 150,259 unemployed U.S. citizens should contact Merkley and Wyden, along with Rep. Peter DeFazio, and tell them that Oregonians never should have to compete for scarce jobs, now or in the future, with persons who are illegally in the country, and furthermore, that a stand-alone federally mandated E-Verify system is the best way to get unemployed people in Oregon and across the country back to full-time work.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

October 3, 2013

Lars:

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated September 1, 2013 DOC indicated there were 14,526 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s September 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,175 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,175 criminal aliens incarcerated on September 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 8.09% of the DOC September 1st prison population.

Comparing DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers from September 1, 2008 (1,081 criminal aliens) and September 1, 2013 (1,175 criminal aliens), the DOC prison system incarcerated 94 criminal aliens more than it did on September 1, 2008, a 8.69% increase.

When comparing DOC domestic criminal incarceration numbers from September 1, 2008 (12,477 domestic criminals) and September 1, 2013 (13,351 domestic criminals), the DOC prison system incarcerated 874 domestic criminals more than it did on September 1, 2008, a 7.00% increase.

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from September 1st 2008 – 2013, the DOC prison population grew by 968 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 9.71% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,175 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%), 17-Benton (1.47%), 81-Clackamas (6.89%), 5-Clatsop (0.42%), 3-Columbia (0.25%), 6-Coos (0.51%), 3-Crook (0.25%), 0-Curry (0.00%), 17-Deschutes (1.45%), 7-Douglas (0.59%), 1-Gilliam (0.08%), 0-Grant (0.00%), 0-Harney (0.00%), 6-Hood River (0.51%), 50-Jackson (4.25%), 10-Jefferson (0.85%), 7-Josephine (0.59%), 11-Klamath (0.94%), 0-Lake (0.00), 57-Lane (4.85%), 8-Lincoln (0.68%), 24-Linn (2.04%), 11-Malheur (0.94%), 283-Marion (24.08%), 5-Morrow (0.42%), 265-Multnomah (22.55%), 1-OOS (0.08%), 18-Polk (1.53%), 0-Sherman (0.00%), 5-Tillamook (0.42%), 18-Umatilla (1.53%), 5-Union (0.42), 0-Wallowa (0.00%), 3-Wasco (0.25%), 217-Washington (18.47%), 0-Wheeler (0.00%), and 31-Yamhill (2.64%).

Your listeners should be aware the types of crime committed against their fellow Oregonians by the 1,175 criminal aliens.

A review of the 1,175 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 3-arsons (0.25%), 125-assaults (10.64%), 22-burglaries (1.87%), 24-driving offenses (2.04%), 171-drugs (14.55%), 0-escape (0.00%), 3-forgeries (0.25%), 150-homicides (12.76%), 47-kidnappings (4.00%), 58-others (4.94%), 173-rapes (14.72%), 75-robberies (6.38%), 214-sex abuses (18.21%), 92-sodomies (7.83%), 12-thefts (1.02%), and 6-vehicle thefts (0.51%).

Listeners should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,175 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,175 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 7-Canada (0.59%), 8-Cuba (0.68%), 15-El Salvador (1.28%), 30-Guatemala (2.55%), 14-Honduras (1.19%), 8-Laos (0.68%), 962-Mexico (81.87%), 7-Philippines (0.59%), 86-others (7.32%), 8-Russia (0.68%), 14-Ukraine (1.19%), and 16-Vietnam (1.36%).

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 incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($84.81) per day to incarcerate.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 1,175 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($99,651.75) per day, ($697,562.25) per week, and ($36,372,888.75) per year.

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,175 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, maim or poison Oregonians.

Oregon State Legislators should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,175 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($84.81) per day to incarcerate (See link).

http://www.oregon.gov/doc/GECO/docs/pdf/IB_53_quick_facts.pdf

Even taking into account fiscal year 2012 United States Federal Government State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $1,996,569.00, if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2013, the cost to incarcerate 1,175 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($34,376,319.75) (See link).

https://www.bja.gov/Funding/12SCAAPAwards.pdf

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,175 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.

http://www.usdoj.gov/oig/reports/OJP/a0707/final.pdf

The USDOJ, the federal governments top law enforcement agency, identified Oregon as a “sanctuary” for criminal aliens.

An Oregon law, Oregon Revised Statue 181.850 (ORS 181.850), Section (1), prohibits Oregon law enforcement (Oregon State Police (OSP), county sheriffs, city police departments) from asking immigration status of anyone residing in the State of Oregon “for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.” Under ORS 181.850, Section (2), Oregon law enforcement may exchange information with U.S. DHS–ICE . . . “in order to: Subsection (a), “Verify the immigration status of a person if the person is arrested for any criminal offense;” or, Subsection (b), “Request criminal investigation information with reference to persons named in records of the” U.S. DHS–ICE . . . (See link).

http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/181.html

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, maim or abuse Oregonians.

Oregonians should contact their Oregon State Senator and Representative and ask them to reintroduce, support and pass legislation like HB 2803 (legislation offered during the 2011 session) during the next legislative session that would empower law enforcement to fight foreign national crime in the state.

As registered Oregon voters, referendum (#301) campaign participants should know that in any referendum campaign in this state you should never leave any signature sheet with the name or names of referendum signees on the table.
