Legislators should leave ballot title alone

Legislators should leave ballot title alone

Apparently, Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek, D-Portland, along with Reps. Jessica Vega-Pederson, D-Portland, and Vic Gilliam, R-Silverton, don’t trust the wisdom of more than 71,000 Oregon voters statewide in 2013, who had the opportunity to read Senate Bill 833 and then sign a referendum 301 signature sheet that put 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 — Vega-Pederson and Gilliam were original sponsors of the driver card 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 should, in all fairness to the state’s voters who 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 legislators and tell them to reject any tampering with 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.”

Criminal Aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections Prison System

Criminal Aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections Prison System

February 28, 2014

According to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profile dated February 1, 2014 DOC indicated there were 14,634 prisoners incarcerated in DOC’s 14 prisons.

Not included in DOC’s February 1st Inmate Population Profile was DOC data indicating there were 1,154 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in its prison system.

All 1,154 criminal aliens incarcerated on February 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 7.88% of the DOC February 1st prison population (See table).

Bringing the preceding numbers together, from February 1st 2008 – 2014, six years, the DOC prison population grew by 1,102 domestic and criminal alien prisoners; 9.07% of the overall growth was in criminal alien prisoners.

A review of the 1,154 criminal aliens in DOC prisons by number per county and percentage (%) per county equated to the following: 0-Baker (0.00%); 16-Benton (1.39%); 79-Clackamas (6.84%); 5-Clatsop (0.43%); 2-Columbia (0.17%); 5-Coos (0.43%); 2-Crook (0.17%); 0-Curry (0.00%); 16-Deschutes (1.39%); 6-Douglas (0.52%); 1-Gilliam (0.09%); 0-Grant (0.00%); 0-Harney (0.00%); 6-Hood River (0.52%); 48-Jackson (4.16%); 8-Jefferson (0.69%); 7-Josephine (0.61%); 8-Klamath (0.69%); 0-Lake (0.00); 59-Lane (5.11%); 9-Lincoln (0.78%); 26-Linn (2.25%); 12-Malheur (1.04%); 274-Marion (23.74%); 4-Morrow (0.35%); 272-Multnomah (23.57%); 1-OOS (0.09%); 18-Polk (1.56%); 0-Sherman (0.00%); 4-Tillamook (0.35%); 20-Umatilla (1.73%); 4-Union (0.35); 0-Wallowa (0.00%); 3-Wasco (0.26%); 209-Washington (18.11%); 0-Wheeler (0.00%); and 30-Yamhill (2.60%).

No member of the Oregon State Legislature should forget the uncounted crime victims and their families, no matter what their immigration status, all victims of the 1,154 criminal aliens incarcerated in DOC prisons.

A review of the 1,154 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers per crime and percentage (%) per crime equated to the following: 2-arsons (0.17%); 108-assaults (9.36%); 25-burglaries (2.17%); 17-driving offenses (1.47%); 172-drugs (14.90%); 0-escape (0.00%); 2-forgeries (0.17%); 149-homicides (12.91%); 48-kidnappings (4.16%); 60-others (5.20%); 176-rapes (15.25%); 74-robberies (6.41%); 212-sex abuses (18.37%); 93-sodomies (8.06%); 10-thefts (0.87%); and 6-vehicle thefts (0.52%).

Oregon State Legislators should not overlook the source of the preceding crimes, the country of origin of the 1,154 criminal aliens in DOC prisons.

The self-declared counties of origin of the 1,154 criminal aliens in the DOC prison population by numbers and percentage (%) per country equated to the following: 7-Canada (0.61%); 10-Cuba (0.87%); 14-El Salvador (1.21%); 7-Federated States of Micronesia (0.61%); 32-Guatemala (2.77%); 13-Honduras (1.13%); 7-Laos (0.61%); 936-Mexico (81.11%); 6-Philippines (0.52%); 84-others (7.28%); 9-Russia (0.78%); 13-Ukraine (1.13%); and 16-Vietnam (1.39%).

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 ($87.08) per day; the cost to incarcerate a prisoner increased ($2.27) per day in February 2014, a 2.67% increase from 2013’s cost of ($84.81) per day (See link).

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

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 1,154 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($100,490.32) per day, ($703,432.24) per week, and ($36,678,966.80) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2013 United States Federal Government State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $2,146,935.00, if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2014, the cost to incarcerate 1,154 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($34,532,031.80) (See link).

https://www.bja.gov/Funding/13SCAAPawards.pdf

None of my preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 1,154 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, February 2007, Redacted-Public Version” identified the State of Oregon as having an official “state sanctuary statute,” ORS 181.850 Enforcement of federal immigration laws (See link).

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.oregonlegislature.gov/bills_laws/lawsstatutes/2013ors181.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.

Proponents wrong in attempting to rewrite driver card ballot title

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.
