Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
February 9, 2017
It has been an interesting first full week in the month of February 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 possess illicit drugs.
Wednesday, February 1st I noticed a newspaper public safety report that Hermiston Police had arrested Hector Alejandro Ortiz-Guizar (VINE ID: 412082), age 28, (Date of Birth: 07/07/1988) for one count unlawful possession of methamphetamine and a felony immigration detainer warrant.
So I checked to see if Hector Alejandro Ortiz-Guizar was incarcerated at the Umatilla County Jail in Pendleton, Oregon. He was not incarcerated at the jail.
On the same day, February 1st, I contacted the Northwest U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Spokesperson Virginia C. Kice to find out the immigration status of Hector Alejandro Ortiz-Guizar.
Five days later, on Monday, February 6th ICE Spokesperson Kice shared the following information:
“Cleared Statement on Meth Trafficking Defendant . . .
Mr. Ortiz was transferred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody Jan. 31 following his release by local authorities. Relevant databases indicate Mr. Ortiz, who was never lawfully admitted to the U.S., hasn’t been previously encountered by authorities with the Department of Homeland Security. Nor has Mr. Ortiz ever served time in federal prison. He remains in ICE detention at this time while his deportation case undergoes review by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), the Department of Justice agency which administers the nation’s immigration courts.” – Virginia C. Kice
The translation of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Spokesperson’s statement: Illegal alien Hector Alejandro Ortiz-Guizar, Meth Trafficking Defendant, is currently being detained by ICE while his deportation case undergoes review; he will eventually make an appearance in a federal immigration court.
Lars, the first full week in the month of February and another criminal alien report for Lars Larson Show KXL FM 101.1 radio listeners.
