Letter: Legislature shouldn’t interfere with driver card referendum

Feb. 26, 2014 |

Apparently Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek along with Reps. Jessica Vega Pederson and Vic Gilliam want to undermine the will of more than 71,000 Oregon voters in 2013 who had the opportunity to read SB 833 and then sign a Referendum 301 signature sheet that puts the issue of whether or not those illegally present in the state should be allowed driver cards before voters in November 2014.

These legislators want to pass HB 4054 that rewrites the ballot title of the Referendum 301 even before the Oregon Supreme Court gets a chance to make a decision on the input given by opponents and proponents of the current ballot title.

The 2014 Legislature should in all fairness to the voters who signed the referendum not interfere and let the state court have the final say on the ballot title of the referendum.

Oregonians opposing driver cards for those illegally present in the state should contact their state legislators and tell them to reject the plot to change the current ballot title which clearly reveals the consequences of the legislation if it were to become a state law — “Provides Oregon resident ‘driver card’ without requiring proof of legal presence in the United States.”

Oregon State Legislature proponents of driver cards wrong in attempting to rewrite the ballot title

Oregon State Legislature proponents of driver cards wrong in attempting to rewrite the ballot title

Posted on: Feb 25 2014

By David Olen Cross

Apparently Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek (HD-44) along with Representatives Jessica Vega-Pederson (HD-47) and Vic Gilliam (HD-18) don’t trust the wisdom of more than 71,000 Oregon voters state wide in 2013 who had the opportunity to read Senate Bill 833 and then sign a referendum 301 signature sheet that puts the issue of whether or not those illegally present in the state should be allowed driver cards before the state’s voters in November of this year.

Unfortunately these legislators, Reps. Vega-Pederson and Gilliam who were original sponsors of the driver cards legislation, want to pass a law to rewrite the ballot title of referendum 301 even before the Oregon Supreme Court gets a chance to make a decision on the input given by opponents and proponents of the current ballot title.

All members of the 2014 Oregon State Legislature legislative session should in all fairness to the state’s voters that signed referendum 301 stay out of the way — they had their turn at amending the legislation during the 2013 legislative session — and let the state court have the final say on the ballot title of the referendum.

Oregonians who oppose driver cards for those illegally present in the state should contact their state senator and representative and tell them to reject any tampering, call it obfuscation, of the current ballot title which clearly reveals the consequences of the legislation if it becomes state a state law — “Provides Oregon resident ‘driver card’ without requiring proof of legal presence in the United States.”

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

February 20, 2014

Lars:

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

This week we put a face to alien crime in the state for your radio listeners — the fifth most common alien criminal activity that occurs in our state — assaults.

On Saturday, November 30, 2013 Gresham Police Department officers found and arrested Pedro Nunez-Valdivia, age 45, for his alleged stabbing of ‘Good Samaritan’ Kit Haberman, age 29, who tried on Friday, November 29th to stop a domestic assault.

During the assault, Maria Rodriguez-Medrano, age 40, Nunez-Valdivia’s wife was also cut.

After Nunez-Valdivia’s arrest, he was then transported by police officers to the Multnomah County Jail where he was charged with One Count of Assault Two, One Count of Assault Two (Domestic Violence), One Count of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, One Count of Unlawful Use of a Weapon (Domestic Violence) and One Count of Strangulation.

While he was incarcerated at the county jail, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents monitoring jail intakes placed an immigration detainer on him (See link).

Approximately three months later, in early February 2014, in a Multnomah County Circuit Court room he pled guilty to One Count of Unlawful Use of a Weapon (Domestic Violence) and One Count of Attempted Assault Two, both crimes “C” felonies.

A Multnomah County Circuit Court judge sentenced Nunez-Valdivia to five years in the Oregon Department of Corrections prison system for his crimes.

According to information obtained Thursday, February 20th, on the Oregon Department of Corrections, Offender Search Website, Pedro Nunez-Valdivia (SID #: 18057280) is currently incarcerated at the Coffee Creek Correctional Institution in Wilsonville, Oregon, the state’s prison intake facility (See link)
