Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
October 27, 2016
It has been an interesting last full week in the month of October 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 deal illicit drugs.
On Monday, October 17, 2016 Josue Anton Valdovinos-Moreno (SID: 16110851), age 24 (Date of Birth: 06/03/1992), was arrested by members of the Westside Interagency Narcotics (WIN) team.
At the time of Valdovinos-Moreno’s arrest the WIN team sized 7 pounds of methamphetamine, a semi-automatic handgun and $194,500.00 in cash. The street value of the meth was estimated to be $50,000.00.
Valdovinos-Moreno is currently incarcerated at the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon where online jail records indicate he has been charged with one count unlawful possession of methamphetamine and one count unlawful delivery of methamphetamine.
My understanding is the WIN team, a multi law enforcement agency cooperative, includes Homeland Security Investigations so I decided to investigate the immigration status of Josue Anton Valdovinos-Moreno.
On Monday, October 24th, I contacted the Northwest Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Spokesperson Rose M. Richeson to find out the immigration status of Valdovinos-Moreno.
The next day, on Tuesday, October 25th ICE Spokesperson Richeson shared the following information:
“This week, deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged a Request for Voluntary Transfer (Form I-247X) on Josue Antonio Valdovinos-Moreno, who is currently in the custody of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. The I-247X requests that authorities at the jail to notify ICE prior to Mr. Valdovinos’ release so ICE can arrange to take him into custody in order to pursue possible administrative immigration enforcement action. Department of Homeland Security databases indicate Mr. Valdovino has not been subject to any prior immigration enforcement actions.” – Rose M. Richeson
The same day, October 25th, via e-mail, I inquired from the ICE spokesperson the country of origin of Valdovinos-Moreno. This was her response the next day, October 26th:
“Department of Homeland Security databases indicate he is from Mexico.” – Rose M. Richeson
