Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

June 25, 2015

Lars:

It has been an interesting fourth full week in the month of June when it comes to criminal aliens here in the Pacific Northwest part of the United States of America.

This week we put another face to alien crime for your radio listeners — criminal aliens who are committing sex crimes.

Monday, June 22, 2015 in Salem, Oregon a Marion County Circuit Court Judge Dennis Graves sentenced Juan de Dios Cruz-Rojas (SID#: 11440210), age 43, to serve 93 years plus eight months, in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system for the crimes of four counts of first-degree rape, four counts of first-degree sex abuse, three counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of sodomy.

A bit of history, this is the second trial of Juan de Dios Cruz-Rojas since 2011 for sex crimes he committed against two pre-teen girls. That trial resulted in Cruz-Rojas being sentenced to 170 years in the DOC prison system. His long prison sentence related to “Jessica’s Law” (sex crimes against children under 12 years of age) which went into effect in the state in 2006.

This serial sex offender of little girls, because of a rape, was responsible for impregnating one of the girls.

A significant fact came out of the trial of Juan de Dios Cruz-Rojas, he had entered the United States illegally in 1991.

During the time of Cruz-Rojas’ incarceration at the Marion County Correctional Faculty (MCCF) U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents monitoring the jail placed an immigration detainer on him.

Some fast facts:

On January 1, 2015 the Oregon Department of Corrections prison system incarcerated 1,040 criminal aliens (prisoners with immigration detainers); 465 of those alien prisoners (44.71 percent) were serving time for sex crimes (169 rapes, 199 sex abuses and 97 sodomies).

Oregon Opportunity Grants for illegal immigrants is a bad idea

The Argus Observer
Guest opinion
Oregon Opportunity Grants for illegal immigrants is a bad idea

David Olen Cross |

Sens. Peter Courtney of Salem and Michael Dembrow (Portland) along with Reps. Betty Komp (Woodburn), Jessica Vega Peterson (Portland) and Joe Gallegos’ (Hillsboro) sponsorship of Senate Bill 932, legislation that would grant access to Oregon Opportunity Grants to illegal immigrants, makes these legislators seem tone death to the will of nearly 1 million Oregon voters (66 percent) who less than eight months ago rejected during the 2014 general election Measure 88, legislation that would have granted state-issued driver cards to illegal immigrants.

By a 2 to 1 margin, voters defeated Measure 88, indicating that Oregon voters are very opposed to the idea of providing illegal immigrants any form of state benefit, like a state-issued identity, that would validate their presence in the state.

Senate Bill 932 in a very clear way validates the presence of illegal immigrants in the state by granting them the benefit of equal access to Oregon Opportunity Grants.

This school year, only 30 percent of the 120,000 Oregon students eligible obtained a taxpayer-funded Oregon Opportunity Grant.

Currently there are not enough state monies available to fund Oregon Opportunity Grants for all American citizen Oregon students, let alone for persons illegally in the state.

The financial impact of SB 932 on the state’s taxpayers is the legislation could require the state of Oregon to write a check in the amount of up to $2,100 for the 2015-2016 school years to each illegal immigrant who applies and is accepted to receive a grant.

Over the period of time that it takes to complete a traditional four-year college education, an individual illegal immigrant could receive as much as $8,400 in state opportunity grants.

Earlier this year, Rep. Jessica Vega Peterson estimated that 76 illegal immigrants living in the state could be eligible to receive opportunity grants.

Doing the math on 76 illegal immigrants receiving Oregon Opportunity Grants for a period of from one to four years could cost the state’s taxpayers between $159,600 and $638,400.

The state government administrative costs for giving illegal immigrants opportunity grants are estimated to be over the next four years $144,499.

The preceding numbers very likely underestimate the total number of illegal residents who might actually receive the opportunity grants in the future because, according to the Pew Research Center, there are 120,000 unauthorized residents living in Oregon.

A final troubling fact about SB 932 is the sponsors of the legislation have placed an emergency clause on the Senate bill, which means Oregonians opposing this legislation would be prevented from using the state’s referendum process to put this issue of whether illegal immigrants  should get access opportunity grants before the state’s voters.

Oregon voters who reject the idea of granting the benefit of Oregon Opportunity Grants to illegal immigrants, a legislative action that validates their presence in the state, should contact their state senator and representative and tell them to vote no on SB 932.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

June 11, 2015

Lars:

It has been an interesting second full week in the month of June when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest.

This week we take a look at for your radio listeners an illegal alien who has allegedly murdered at least three residents of the State of Washington.

Francisco J. Resendez Miranda, age 24, identified as a resident of Oregon’s Umatilla County, has been charged with three counts of aggravated murder in a Benton County Superior Court related to the August 9, 2014 shooting deaths of Abigail Torres-Renteria, age 23, Victoria Torres, age 19, and David Perez-Saucedo, age 22.

The darkness, the evil, of Resendez Miranda’s alleged crimes are starkly revealed in the fact that one of his alleged victims, Abigail Torres-Renteria, was nine months pregnant at the time of her untimely death.

Because of a State of Washington law, Resendez Miranda will not be charged with death of a nearly full term baby.

Francisco J. Resendez Miranda is currently incarcerated at the Benton County Jail in Kennewick, Washington where federal immigration officials monitoring the jail have placed an immigration detainer on him (See link).

http://www.co.benton.wa.us/pView.aspx?id=1803&catid=45

Some fast facts:

At the time of Francisco J. Resendez Miranda was arrested for the murders of the three residents of the State of Washington he was incarcerated at the Umatilla County Jail in Pendleton, Oregon serving time for a misdemeanor charge of menacing.

The Umatilla County Jail no longer honors federal immigration detainers.

If a county jail in Oregon no longer honors federal immigration detainers, a criminal alien may be able to post bail before Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents are able get to the jail and arrest the individual.

A criminal alien being able to post bail for even a minor crime(s) means there is little likelihood they will show up in a state circuit court to face a judge or jury for their alleged crime(s) because they know there is at least a slight possibility they may face deportation if they are convicted of a crime(s).
