Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
March 13, 2014
It has been an interesting second full week in the month of March when it comes to criminal aliens here in the State of Oregon.
This week we put another face to alien crime in the state for your radio listeners — the third most common alien criminal activity that occurs in our state — drug crimes.
On Sunday, March 9, 2014 an Oregon State Police (OSP) officer pulled over Erick Salvador Hernandez-Ruiz, age 36, a California resident, for speeding up Interstate-5 North of Medford, Oregon. During the traffic stop and through further investigation the OSP officer discovered 3.8 pounds of methamphetamine in the 2014 Honda Accord, with California license plates, being driven by Hernandez-Ruiz.
After the discovery of the meth, Hernandez-Ruiz was arrested and taken to the Jackson County Jail in Medford where he faces charges of unlawful possession and distribution of a controlled substance methamphetamine.
Since Erick Salvador Hernandez-Ruiz (SID #: 20563024) has been incarcerated at the county jail, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents monitoring jail intakes placed an immigration detainer on him (See link).
Some fast facts:
– The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) on February 1, 2014 had 172 criminal aliens incarcerated for drug crimes with immigration detainers;
– Jackson County Circuit Courts have sent 22 of the 172 criminal aliens (12.79 percent of the aliens) currently serving time in the DOC prison system for drug crimes;
– The self-declared country of origin of the 22 aliens sent to prison from Jackson County, 90.09 percent Mexican nationals.
