Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report July 2017

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report July 2017

August 11, 2017

Data Compiled By David Olen Cross

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) July 1, 2017 Inmate Population Profile indicated there were 14,742 inmates incarcerated in the DOC’s 14 prisons.

Data obtained from the DOC indicated that on July 1st there were 986 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in the state’s prison system; approximately one in every fifteen prisoners incarcerated by the state was a criminal alien, 6.69 percent of the total prison population.

Some background information, all 986 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 July 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 986 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($93,226.30) per day, ($652,584.10) per week, and ($34,027,599.50) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2016 U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), 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 986 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($32,239,524.50). Note: At this point in time there is no indication the U.S. BJA will provide SCAAP awards in 2017.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 986 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report June 2017

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report June 2017

August 8, 2017

By David Olen Cross

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nations boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is unambiguously 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 June 24, 2017.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– México 26,007 inmates, 13.9 percent;
– Colombia 1,705 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,503 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,235 inmates, 0.7 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 9,518 inmates, 5.1 percent;
– United States 147,414 inmates, 78.7 percent;

Total Inmates 187,382 inmates.

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

Combining June 24th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 39,968 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 21.3 percent of the federal prison population; more than two in every ten inmates were criminal aliens.

With 26,007 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 65.1 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 inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 14,232 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 7.6 percent of the federal prison population.

A wakeup call to all American citizens, eventually the majority of these criminal aliens from México, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Cuba and other countries will be released from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons after completing their prison terms.

The country of Mexico, America’s neighbor to the south, is both historically and literally a land bridge of many frequently unsecured trails, roads, highways and railways used by persons trying and far too often successfully illegally entering our country.

United States citizens should, if they haven’t already, contact their members of the United States Congress (two Senators and one Representative) and tell them to support President Donald J. Trump’s commitment to build a wall (fences and technology) along the U.S. border with Mexico to stop the threat of tens of thousands of criminal aliens, once they are released from the federal prison system and deported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to their countries of origin, ability to illegally return to this nation and harm its citizens and residents.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

August 3, 2017

Lars: It has been an interesting first week in the month of August when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

This week we take a look at for your radio listeners at an illegal alien who has been a participant in the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program who now faces serious criminal charges in Washington’s King County.

On Thursday, June 29, 2017 Salvador Diaz-Garcia, age 23, was arrested by law enforcement in the City of Burien (King County Sheriff’s Office provides law enforcement for the city). A view of the King County Jail website reveals Salvador Diaz-Garcia has been charged with Assault, Assault in the Second Degree and Child Molestation in the Third Degree. Diaz-Garcia’s bail has been set at $350,000.00.

The charges against Salvador Diaz-Garcia (Current booking #217019023) are related to his alleged violent attack on a 19-year-old female and in an unrelated incident evolving the alleged molestation of a 14 year old girl.

According to local news media, a King County Sheriff Deputy’s incident report described the 19-year-old female as having extensive head injuries that included right ear torn and dangling, front teeth missing or damaged, upper lip torn and head cuts. Details about the molestation of 14 year old girl are also covered in by the same online local media outlet.

Wanting to know the current immigration status of Salvador Diaz-Garcia, I contacted via e-mail and a phone call on Thursday, August 3, 2017 Western Region Director U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Spokesperson Virginia C. Kice.

Just hours later, on same day, here is what ICE Spokesperson Kice had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Salvador Diaz-Garcia:

“David…as I mentioned on the phone…we have lodged a detainer against this individual…although as you know…very few law enforcement agencies in the Washington honor our detainers.” – Virginia C. Kice

I had also inquired from ICE Spokesperson Kice about Salvador Diaz-Garcia’s DACA status, so the ICE Spokesperson forwarded my questions to U.S. CIS Spokesperson Gillian M. Christensen.

Here is what CIS Spokesperson Christensen had to say on the afternoon of August 3rd about Salvador Diaz-Garcia’s DACA status:

“Salvador Garcia Diaz was granted DACA in June 2013 and was an active DACA recipient at the time the crime was committed. His DACA has been terminated today, per standard procedure, based on his criminal arrest.” – Gillian M Christensen

Analysis of the preceding information:

It is fortunate that Salvador Garcia’s current bail has been set at $350,000.00 because King County Sheriff John Urquhart has been prohibited by a September 3, 2014 Metropolitan King County Council Ordinance 17886 from honoring federal immigration detainers.

Since November 10, 2009 when the Council of King County passed Ordinance 16692 county law enforcement has been prohibited from enforcing federal immigration law.

To the further detriment of enforcement of federal immigration law, the City of Burien Mayor and City Council in January 9, 2017 passed Ordinance No. 651 prohibiting city police from enforcing federal immigration law.

Without a doubt, the Metropolitan King County Council and the City of Burien Mayor and City Council have tied the hands of county and city law enforcement from forming any cooperative agreements with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to enforce federal immigration law in the county.
