Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

March 29, 2017

Lars:

It has been an interesting last week in the month of March 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 drove a motor vehicle impaired in the State of Oregon.

On Sunday, March 26, 2017 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Deportation officers arrested Mexican national Francisco J. Rodriguez-Dominguez, age 25, at his residence in Portland, Oregon. The reason ICE officers arrested Rodriguez-Dominguez was apparently related to a local conviction for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII).

Some background information: Francisco J. Rodriguez-Dominguez is a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) participant.

Here is a description of  what DACA is and what it isn’t:

“What Is DACA

On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide lawful status.” – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

Individuals’ who are eligible and want to participate in the DACA program must meet seven requirements:

Guidelines

You may request DACA if you:

1. Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;

2. Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;

3. Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;

4. Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making your request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS;

5. Had no lawful status on June 15, 2012;

6. Are currently in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and

7. Have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.” – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

Wanting to know more details on the immigration status of Francisco J. Rodriguez-Dominguez, I contacted March 28, 2017 via a cell phone call Northwest Immigration and Customs (ICE) Spokesperson Rose M. Richeson.

The same day, on March 28th, here is what ICE Spokesperson Richeson had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Francisco J. Rodriguez-Dominguez:

“The following information can be attributed to me – Rose Richeson, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson:

Deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) took Mr. Rodriguez into custody March 26. He was targeted for arrest based upon his guilty plea in December to a charge of driving under the influence of intoxicants, an offense ICE deems a threat to public safety. Mr. Rodriguez was transferred to the Northwest Detention Center and subsequently released on bond March 27 pending the outcome of removal proceedings before an immigration judge with the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review.

ON BACKGROUND (from an ICE official):

ICE has arrested recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) during enforcement operations in the past who, based on their criminal history, fall under ICE’s enforcement priorities, including individuals who pose a potential threat public safety. I would refer you to our colleagues at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for more details about DACA eligibility and disqualifying factors like criminal convictions.” – Rose M. Richeson.

Boiling all preceding information down, it appears ICE Deportation officers arrested Francisco J. Rodriguez Dominguez because he had committed a significant misdemeanor, A DUII, and he posed a threat to public safety of the citizens and residents of the country, furthermore, he violated the terms of his DACA status.

A troubling fact, according to a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) press release dated March 20, 2017 titled “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Declined Detainer Outcome Report” since April 2014 the Multnomah County Jail will not honor an ICE detainer without court order or warrant.

The DHS report discloses that the Multnomah County Jail declined on January 31, 2017 an immigration detainer on a Mexican national with an Assault conviction.

Then again the DHS report reveals the Multnomah County Jail declined on February1, 2017 an immigration detainer on a Tongan national with and Amphetamine Possession conviction.

Let us hope for the sake of the public safety of your radio listens in Multnomah County that Sheriff Mike Reese changes the jail’s policy of not honoring immigration detainers, moreover, notifies ICE Deportation officers before possibly releasing any more criminal aliens mentioned in this report, so ICE officers can take them into custody immediately when they are released from the jail.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Aliens in February 2017

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Aliens in February 2017

March 28, 2017

By David Olen Cross

One of the detrimental impacts of having a significant foreign national population residing in the United States, be they legally or illegally present in the country, continues to be crime.

The scope and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is clearly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from February 25, 2017.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– México 26,908 inmates, 14.3 percent;
– Colombia 1,675 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,582 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,248 inmates, 0.7 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 9,670 inmates, 5.1 percent;
– United States 147,651 inmates, 78.2 percent;

Total Inmates 188,734 inmates.

To clarify the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

Combining February 28th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 41,083 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 21.8 percent of the federal prison population; more than two in every ten prisoners were criminal aliens.

With 26,908 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 65.5 percent, they were the vast majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top five offenses, the reason BOP inmates were incarcerated in federal prisons, continues to be for immigration crimes. There were 14,906 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 8.4 percent of the federal prison population.

A significant fact, eventually the majority of these criminal aliens from México, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Cuba and other countries will be released from the BOP prison system after completing their prison terms.

United States citizens should, if they haven’t already, contact President Donald J. Trump and their members of Congress (two Senators and one Representative) and ask them to make sure the executive and legislative branches of our government work together to supply the resources U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) need to make sure that criminal aliens once they are released from the BOP prison system are removed and prevented from returning to our country.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

March 24, 2017

Lars:

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

This week we take a look at for your radio listeners illegal aliens who deal drugs in the State of Washington.

On Thursday, March 16, 2017 members of the Clark-Vancouver Drug Task Force executed search warrants as a result of an investigation of individuals dealing drugs in Clark County, Washington. After serving the search warrants, Drug Task Force members found and seized approximately 11.25 pounds of heroin and $51,000 in cash. The street value of the drugs was estimated to be $250,000.

Drug Task Force Detectives’ arrested Jose Carlos Vega-Rivera, age 30, Luis Armando Morales-Garcia, age 31, and Karen Moreno-Arrelanas, age 23, all three individuals were residents of Vancouver, Washington.

These individuals were charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver heroin. The three alleged drug dealers were booked into the Clark County Jail.

Wanting to know immigration status of Jose Carlos Vega-Rivera, Luis Armando Morales-Garcia and Luis Armando Morales-Garcia, I contacted via e-mail on March 20, 2017 Northwest Immigration and Customs (ICE) Spokesperson Rose M. Richeson.

Three days later, on March 23, 2017 here is what ICE Spokesperson Richeson had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on the three alleged drug dealers:

“Please see answers to your questions on the three individuals below:

On March 17, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged a detainer against Jose Carlos Vega-Rivera, who is currently being held in the Clark County Jail. The detainer requests that authorities notify ICE prior to Mr. Vega’s release to enable ICE to take custody to pursue possible administrative immigration enforcement action. DHS databases indicate Mr. Vega is a Mexican national who was never lawfully admitted to the U.S. He had a prior felony conviction in Arizona in 2010 for alien smuggling and has been repatriated to Mexico six times between 2009 to 2015.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) databases indicate Luis Armando Morales-Garcia is a Mexican national who was never lawfully admitted to the U.S. He was originally arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol in June 2004 and repatriated to Mexico the same day. Following a federal criminal conviction in Arizona, Mr. Morales was removed to Mexico in 2016. Earlier this month, he was transferred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody following his arrest on local criminal charges. Mr. Morales remains in ICE custody at this time pending removal to Mexico.

On March 17, deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged a detainer against Karen Arellanas-Moreno, who is currently being held in the Clark County Jail. The detainer requests that local authorities notify ICE prior to Ms. Arellanas’ release so ICE can arrange to take her into custody in order to pursue possible administrative immigration enforcement action. DHS databases indicate Ms. Arellanas has not been subject to any prior immigration removal actions.” – Rose M. Richeson.

A troubling fact, according to a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) press release dated March 20, 2017 titled “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Declined Detainer Outcome Report” since April 2014 the Clark County Jail will not honor an ICE detainer unless ICE provides an affidavit of probable cause.

The DHS report discloses that the Clark County Jail declined February 2, 2017 an immigration detainer on a Mexican national charged with assault.

Let us hope for the sake of the public safety of your radio listens in Clark County that the Chief Jail Deputy changes the jail’s policy of not honoring immigration detainers, moreover, notifies ICE agents before possibly releasing any of the three alleged drug dealers mentioned in this report, so ICE agents can immediately take them into custody when they are released from the jail.

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report February 2017

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report February 2017

March 14, 2017

Data Compiled By David Olen Cross

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) February 1, 2017 Inmate Population Profile indicated there were 14,594 inmates incarcerated in the DOC’s 14 prisons.

Data obtained from the DOC indicated that on February 1st there were 967 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in the state’s prison system; more than one in every sixteen prisoners incarcerated by the state was a criminal alien, 6.63 percent of the total prison population.

Some background information, all 967 criminal aliens currently incarcerated in the DOC prison system were identified by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a federal law enforcement agency that is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. If an inmate is identified by ICE as being a criminal alien, at the federal law enforcement agency’s request, DOC officials will place an “ICE detainer” on the inmate. After the inmate completes his/her state sanction, prison officials will transfer custody of the inmate to ICE.

Using DOC Inmate Population Profiles and ICE detainer numbers, the following table reveals the total number inmates, the number of domestic and criminal alien inmates along with the percentage of them with ICE detainers incarcerated on February 1st in the state’s prisons.

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 ($94.55) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 967 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($91,429.85) per day, ($640,008.95) per week, and ($33,371,895.25) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2016 U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $1,788,075.00, if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2017, the cost to incarcerate 967 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($31,583,820.25).

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 967 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.
