Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report August 2017

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report August 2017

September 18, 2017

Data Compiled By David Olen Cross

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) August 1, 2017 Inmate Population Profile indicated there were 14,722 inmates incarcerated in the DOC’s 14 prisons.

Data obtained from the DOC indicated that on August 1st there were 984 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, 6.68 percent of the total prison population.

Some background information, all 984 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 August 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 984 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($93,037.20) per day, ($651,260.40) per week, and ($33,958,578.00) 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 984 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($32,170,503.00). 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 984 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

September 14, 2017

Lars:

It has been an interesting second full week in the month of September 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 another 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 Yamhill County, Oregon.

On Wednesday, August 30, 2017 Jonathan Alcantara Romero (SID: 20837259), age 26, was arraigned in Yamhill County Circuit Court on charges of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree and Attempted Sexual Abuse in the First Degree. The charges against Jonathan Alcantara Romero are related to his alleged illicit involvement with a 14-year-old girl.

Jonathan Alcantara Romero is currently incarcerated at the Yamhill County Jail.

Wanting to know the current immigration status of Jonathan Alcantara Romero, I contacted via e-mail on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Western Regional Communications Director/Spokesperson Virginia C. Kice.

The next day, September 13th here is what ICE Spokeswoman Kice had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Jonathan Alcantara Romero:

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) transferred Mr. Alcantara to the custody of the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office Aug. 29 in furtherance of his criminal prosecution for a felony sex offense. At that time, ICE deportation officers lodged an immigration detainer against Mr. Alcantara.

Since Oregon authorities generally don’t honor the agency’s detainers, prior to transferring Mr. Alcantara to the custody of local authorities, ICE officers requested and received a transportation order signed by a Yamhill County Circuit Court judge ordering that he be returned to ICE custody upon completion of the criminal proceedings.

ICE took Mr. Alcantara into custody Nov. 2, 2016, and placed him in removal proceedings. ICE targeted Mr. Alcantara for arrest based upon his October 2016 conviction related to multiple misdemeanor counts, including Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants. Shortly after his arrest by ICE, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services terminated Mr. Alcantara’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. On Aug. 14 an immigration judge with the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review ordered Mr. Alcantara removed from the United States.” – Virginia C. Kice.

Analysis of the preceding information:

The story of Jonathan Alcantara Romero being returned by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement from the ICE Tacoma Northwest Detention Center in the State of Washington to Yamhill County, Oregon to face local criminal charges is a encouraging story of some level of cooperation between ICE and a local Yamhill County Circuit Court judge and local county law enforcement officials.

Jonathan Alcantara Romero’s being picked up by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement after his conviction in Yamhill County for multiple misdemeanors, like Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII), is an strong indicator that ICE is working hard to remove criminal aliens from the state despite the State of Oregon’s sanctuary statute (ORS 181A.820).

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ termination of Jonathan Alcantara Romero being an active Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipient means there is one less of the approximately 11,281 active US CIS DACA recipients living in the State of Oregon. A reminder about DACA, “Deferred action does not provide lawful status” (DACA recipients and their parents are all illegally present in the United States).

The Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C. based immigration issue think tank, has identified Yamhill County, as sanctuary for illegal aliens.

If the residents of Yamhill County want to be protected and safe from threat illegal aliens who commit criminal acts like those allegedly committed by Jonathan Alcantara Romero against a 14 year old girl they should contact their two United States Senators’ Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden and tell them to pass the “No Sanctuary for Criminals Act (H.R. 3003) and Kate’s Law (H.R. 3004)” this congressional legislative session.

Lars, the second full week of September and another criminal alien report for Lars Larson Show KXL FM 101.1 radio listeners.
