Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
April 13, 2017
It has been an interesting second full week in the month of April 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 transport illicit drugs up Interstate-5 (I-5).
On Friday, March 31, 2017 an Oregon State Police (OSP) Trooper stopped a 2007 Mercury SUV driven by Juan Yonic Perez-Palafox for a traffic violation on I-5, near milepost 33, just north of Medford, Oregon.
The OSP Trooper, suspecting criminal activity, obtained the consent of Perez-Palafox to search the SUV. State Police Troopers searching the vehicle discovered six kilos (that’s more than13 pounds) of cocaine in the back seat.
Discovering the narcotics, the OSP took Juan Yonic Perez-Palafox (Offender ID: 205976) into custody and transported him to the Jackson County Jail, located in Medford, Oregon, where he was incarcerated on the charges of Possession, Delivery and Manufacturing of Cocaine.
Since Juan Yonic Perez-Palafox initial arrest on narcotics charges, he has been moved to the Josephine County Jail which is located in Grants Pass, Oregon.
According to the OSP, Perez-Palafox is a resident of the State of Washington.
Wanting to know the immigration status of Juan Yonic Perez-Palafox, I contacted via e-mail on April 10, 2017 Northwest Immigration and Customs (ICE) Spokesperson Rose M. Richeson.
The next day, on April 11, 2017 here is what ICE Spokesperson Richeson had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on the alleged drug mule:
“The following releasable information can be attributed to me – Rose Richeson, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson:
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) databases indicate Juan Yonic Perez-Palafox is a Mexican national who was never lawfully admitted to the U.S. He was originally arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol in August 2005 and repatriated to Mexico the same day. Earlier this month, he was transferred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody following his arrest on local criminal charges. Mr. Perez remains in ICE custody pending removal to Mexico.” – Rose M. Richeson
Summation of the preceding information: Juan Yonic Perez-Palafox is a Mexican national who illegally entered the U.S. in August of 2005 and was repatriated to his country of origin on the same day by the U.S. Border Patrol. During the time of Perez-Palafox’s second illegal entry into the country he was arrested by the Oregon State Police on various narcotics charges. Since Juan Yonic Perez-Palafox’s arrest by the OSP and incarceration in a county jail the rents jail beds to the feds, ICE officers have taken him into custody pending his deportation to Mexico.
