Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

June 9, 2016

Lars:

It has been an interesting second 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 transport illicit drugs — let us call them drug mules.

On Monday, May 18, 2015 the Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers pulled over a Mercury Mountaineer SUV driven by Miguel Angel Reyna-Ramos, age 38, a resident of Tulare, California, on Interstate 5 near Medford, Oregon for weaving in and out of traffic. The OSP troopers after stopping Reyna-Ramos discovered he didn’t have a driver’s license and the Mountaineer SUV was not register in driver’s name. Troopers noticed multiple cell phones on the vehicle’s center console, a possible sign of drug trafficking.

Following up on their suspicions, the OSP troopers asked Reyna-Ramos if they could search the SUV he had been driving, he declined. So OSP troopers deployed a narcotics detection dog. The dog subsequently alerted the troopers to 8 kilograms of methamphetamine and 2 kilograms of heroin located in the vehicle’s luggage compartment. Reyna-Ramos was then arrested by OSP troopers and taken to the Jackson County Jail.

On Wednesday, May 20, 2015 the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office charged Miguel Angel Reyna-Ramos with the unlawful manufacture, delivery and possession of methamphetamine and heroin, as well as failure to display a driver’s license. He was held on more than one million dollars bail.

When questioned in late May 2015 by a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent in Medford, Reyna-Ramos revealed he was transporting drugs up Interstate-5 between California and Washington for a drug cartel located in Mexico.

Apparently because of the enormity or gravity of this drug case against Reyna-Ramos, Oregon criminal charges against him were dismissed. He was sequentially charged in U.S. District Court in Eugene, Oregon with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

On Thursday, June 2, 2016 in a U.S. District Court in Eugene, U.S. District Judge Michael McShane sentenced Miguel Angel Reyna-Ramos to serve 72 months in federal prison after he pled guilty to possession with intent to distribute 50 grams, or more, of a mixture and substance containing methamphetamine.

A press release posted on June 2nd on the U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Oregon, website revealed that Reyna-Ramos is an illegal alien and he will likely be deported after completing his prison sentence.

Lars:

It has been an interesting first 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 transport illicit drugs — let us call them drug mules.

On Friday, April 1, 2016 the Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers pulled over a Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV driven by Sara Rosales-Lopez [SID: 21671594], age 37, in which her husband Oscar Omar Aguilar-Gomez [SID: 21671586], age 30, was a passenger. The reason the OSP troopers stopped the vehicle was for excessive speed and following to close to other vehicles.

Once the Chevrolet Trailblazer the couple occupied was stopped, the OSP troopers approached the SUV and notice an excessive number of air fresheners in the vehicle.

During the traffic stop, when questioned by OSP troopers on the ownership of SUV, the couple was unsure who owned the vehicle. The OSP troopers then apparently made a request to search the SUV; the couple consented to the search of the vehicle.

During the search of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, the OSP troopers discovered 37 packages (27.5 pounds) of methamphetamine.

The couple was then arrested by the OSP troopers and taken to the Jackson County Jail in Medford, Oregon, where each was held on one million dollars bail. They were both charged with felony manufacturing, distributing and possessing methamphetamine.

Spring ahead in time, Friday, May 27, 2016 Oscar Omar Aguilar-Gomez pled no contest in a Jackson County Circuit Court to felony delivery of methamphetamine. Judge Tim Barnack sentenced Aguilar-Gomez to 34 months in the Oregon Department of Corrections prison system.

Earlier in the year, on April 25th, Sara Rosales-Lopez pled guilty to felony delivery of methamphetamine. She was sentenced to two years probation.

According to other media sources and county jail records, Oscar Omar Aguilar-Gomez and Sara Rosales-Lopez are both illegal aliens. They will be turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents after completing their court ordered sentences. Both of them, in the not too distant future, face deportation from this country.

Freed criminal aliens likely more a threat than Isis or al-Qaeda

Freed criminal aliens likely more a threat than Isis or al-Qaeda

By DAVID OLEN CROSS Guest Writer May 26, 2016 4 hrs ago

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in 2015 released 19,723 criminal aliens into the country who had been convicted and served time in federal and state prisons for serious crimes like homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping, assault, drugs, driving under the influence, hit and run and a multitude of other crimes.

Here is a breakdown on the circumstances or stated reasons why ICE and U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) have released these criminal aliens instead of deporting them to their country of origin:

First, federal immigration judges, who are employed by the DOJ, released on bond or custody redetermination 10,175 criminal aliens.

Second, ICE discretionally released 7,293 criminal aliens.

Third, 2,166 criminal aliens were released by ICE because a federal court decision forbid aliens being held in immigration detention centers for more than 180 days.

Fourth, ICE released 89 criminal aliens because the federal agency was unable to obtain travel documents from the aliens’ country of origin.

Countries not providing travel documents, some nations where terrorist groups are active, included: Afghanistan, Algeria, Burundi, Cape Verde, China, Cuba, Eritrea, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, India, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Sudan and Zimbabwe.

To the detriment of public safety, the current presidential administration has been unwilling to limit visa issuance from the preceding countries, even though the administration is legally mandated to hold these counties accountable for their lack of cooperation in taking back their felonious citizens.

Regionally, data obtained from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) indicates the number of criminal aliens released by ICE into the Pacific Northwest states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho in 2015: Washington, 665 criminal aliens; Oregon, 58 criminal aliens; and Idaho, 32 criminal aliens. A total of 755 criminal aliens were released into the three states last year.

Future impact on Pacific Northwest states: Although data are not currently available on Washington and Idaho’s Department of Corrections prison systems; data available from Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) indicated there were 948 criminal aliens incarcerated in DOC prisons on April 1, 2016.

Some of these criminal aliens’ self-declared countries of origin may not provide them travel documents so they can be removed from the country by ICE after they complete their state prison sentences.

The Oregon DOC incarcerated 22 criminal aliens from the following countries whose citizens may be difficult to deport from the United States: Thirteen from Cuba, three from China, two from Liberia, two Somalia, one Eritrea and one from India.

Here are the types of crimes these 22 criminal aliens were convicted of in Oregon county circuit courts and sentenced to serve time in DOC prisons: Four for homicide, three for rape, three for assault, three theft, two kidnapping, two robbery, two burglary, one sex abuse, one drugs and one for another type of crime or a combination of the preceding crimes.

The most recent recidivism rate, the public safety threat to the state’s residents, from convicted felons released from the Oregon prison system is a 24.4 percent likelihood they will be convicted of a new felony after three years of their release from prison.

In the real world, in the daily lives of U.S. citizens and residents, our own federal government, by releasing 19,723 criminal aliens into the population of this country, is likely putting every man, woman and child at greater risk of being harmed or killed by felonious deportable aliens than by global terrorist organizations like ISIS or al-Qaeda.
