Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

April 26, 2018

Lars: It has been an interesting fourth full week in the month of April when it comes to criminal aliens here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

This week we take a look at for your radio listeners at a foreign national convicted and sentenced for the crimes of aggravated murder and robbery in the State of Oregon.

On Monday, January 22, 2018 Edwin Enoc Lara (SID: 20751245; DOB: 04/20/1985), age 32, pled guilty to the crime of Aggravated Murder and Robbery in connection with the death Kaylee Anne Sawyer, age 23, in a Deschutes County Circuit Court room in Bend, Oregon.

Deschutes County Circuit Court Judge A. Michael Adler sentenced Edwin Enoc Lara to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

A plea deal between the Deschutes County prosecutors and Edwin Enoc Lara’s attorneys saved him from going to trial in a death penalty case.

Some background information:

Kaylee Anne Sawyer, a college student, was murdered on July 24, 2016 by a Central Oregon Community College (COCC) security guard Edwin Enoc Lara.

Edwin Enoc Lara, while on duty as a COCC security guard, abducted Kaylee Anne Sawyer as she walked across the college campus by placing her in the back of a COCC security vehicle.

While Kaylee Anne Sawyer was in the back of the Central Oregon Community College’s security vehicle the COCC security guard Edwin Enoc Lara strangled her.

To end 23-yeear old Kaylee Anne Sawyer’s life, COCC security guard Edwin Enoc Lara crushed her head with a rock.

Jamie Sawyer, Kaylee Anne Sawyer father, stated at the sentencing of Edwin Enoc Lara for the murder of Sawyer’s daughter, that law enforcement investigators involved in the case recommended to him not to view the body of Kaylee Anne Sawyer, her face was “unrecognizable.”

During the pre trial background investigation of the case against Edwin Enoc Lara for the murder of Kaylee Anne Sawyer information was disclosed that Lara was a citizen of Honduras.

Edwin Enoc Lara is currently incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system at the Snake River Correctional Institution (SRCI) located near Ontario, Oregon.

Wanting to know the actual current immigration status of Edwin Enoc Lara, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, April 23, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer/Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell to investigate if he was illegally present in the United States of America.

On the morning of Thursday, April 26, 2018 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer/Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Edwin Enoc Lara:

“Here’s a statement from ICE on Mr. Lara-Mejia.”

“On Feb. 3, ICE lodged a detainer with the Oregon Department of Corrections on Edwin Enoc Lara-Mejia, a citizen of Honduras, following his conviction and subsequent sentence to life in prison without parole for aggravated murder. While the Oregon Department of Corrections will not hold aliens past their scheduled release time, the department does notify ICE of an alien’s impending release so ICE can make arrangements to transfer the alien into ICE custody.

“ICE previously encountered Lara-Mejia in August 2016 at the Deschutes County Jail when he was charged with four counts of murder; however, in accordance with immigration law, the agency did not lodge a detainer at that time because Lara-Mejia had not yet been convicted of any crimes that would qualify him for removal, given his status in the U.S.” – Carissa Cutrell

Analysis of the preceding information:

The statement from ICE Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell reveals considerable information about the immigration status of Edwin Enoc Lara-Mejia:

First, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is checking the immigration status of inmates incarcerated in the Oregon Department of prison system.

“On Feb. 3 “ICE lodged a detainer with the Oregon Department of Corrections on Edwin Enoc Lara-Mejia, a citizen of Honduras, following his conviction and subsequent sentence to life in prison without parole for aggravated murder.”

Second, the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) is cooperating at a significant level with ICE.

“While the Oregon Department of Corrections will not hold aliens past their scheduled release time, the department does notify ICE of an alien’s impending release so ICE can make arrangements to transfer the alien into ICE custody.”

Third, ICE officers are checking out the identities of foreign nationals like Edwin Enoc Lara-Mejia while they are incarcerated in local county jails and correctional facilities and who have been charged with local crimes.

“ICE previously encountered Lara-Mejia in August 2016 at the Deschutes County Jail when he was charged with four counts of murder; however, in accordance with immigration law, the agency did not lodge a detainer at that time because Lara-Mejia had not yet been convicted of any crimes that would qualify him for removal, given his status in the U.S.”

Finally, what I didn’t learn from ICE Spokesperson Cutrell’s statement is at what level if any the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is cooperating with ICE on immigration detainers?

A reminder to radio listeners, the State of Oregon has a sanctuary statute (ORS 181A.820) that limits state, county and local law enforcement from cooperating with ICE.

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 ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 976 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($105,661.76) per day, ($739,632.32) per week, and ($38,566,542.40) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 976 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

April 19, 2018

Lars: It has been an interesting third full week in the month of April 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 is allegedly involved in attempted murder and assault in the State of Oregon.

On Saturday, April 14, 2018 Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested Jesus Ascencio Molina, age 24, for a nail gun attack he allegedly perpetrated on one of his coworkers on Friday, April 13, 2018 at a construction site in Happy Valley, Oregon.

After being arrested by Clackamas County Sheriff’s Deputies Jesus Ascencio Molina was transport to the Clackamas County Jail located in Oregon City, Oregon where he is currently being incarcerated.

A viewing of the Clackamas County Jail’s website Inmate Roster reveals Jesus Ascencio Molina (SID: 16480385; DOB: 7/25/93) has been charged with Attempted Murder and Assault in the First Degree. His bail has been set at $250,000.00.

Additional information, the victim of Jesus Ascencio Molina’s April 13th violent attack suffered multiple injuries from nail impacts, and was transported by Life Flight to a local hospital.

Wanting to know the actual current immigration status of Jesus Ascencio-Molina, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, April 16, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer/Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell to investigate if he was illegally present in the United States of America.

On the afternoon of Wednesday, April 18, 2018 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer/Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Jesus Ascencio-Molina:

“Here’s a statement from ICE. You can attribute to me as an ICE spokesperson.” “On April 16, ICE lodged a detainer with the Clackamas County Jail on Jesus Ascencio-Molina, a Mexican national illegally present in the U.S., following his arrest for attempted murder and assault in the first degree. Ascencio-Molina was previously detained by ICE on immigration violations in 2012 after ICE officers encountered him at the Multnomah County Detention Center after his arrest on local criminal charges. An immigration judge subsequently granted Ascencio-Molina voluntary departure to Mexico, and ICE returned him to his home country in 2013.”

“One additional point to note. Even though we lodged a detainer, due to Clackamas County’s policy of non-cooperation, it is unlikely that ICE will be notified in the event Ascencio-Molina is released from custody before his criminal case is resolved.” – Carissa Cutrell

Analysis of the preceding information:

The detailed statement from ICE Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell reveals a great deal about the immigration status of Jesus Ascencio Molina:

First, ICE officers placed an immigration detainer on Jesus Ascencio Molina on April 16, 2018 while he remains incarcerated at the Clackamas County Jail.

Second, ICE officers are checking out the identities of foreign nationals like Jesus Ascencio Molina while they are incarcerated in local county jails and correctional facilities and who have been charged with local crimes.

Third, Jesus Ascencio Molina is a Mexican national illegally present in the United States of America.

Fourth, Jesus Ascencio Molina was previously detained by ICE officers on immigration violations in 2012 after ICE officers encountered him at the Multnomah Jail “after his arrest on local criminal charges.”

Fifth, a U.S. Immigration Court Judge granted Jesus Ascencio Molina voluntary departure to his country of origin.

Sixth, ICE officers returned Jesus Ascencio Molina to Mexico in 2013.

Finally, ICE Spokesmen Cutrell stated she believes that even though ICE officer’s placed an immigration detainer on Jesus Ascencio Molina, because of Clackamas County Jail’s “policy of non-cooperation,” that jail deputies will not notify ICE if the previously deported criminal alien is released from the custody of the jail “before his criminal case is resolved.”

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report March 2018

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report March 2018

April 14, 2018

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 explicitly 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 March 24, 2018.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– México 23,554 inmates, 12.9 percent;
– Colombia 1,673 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,473 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,172 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 9,078 inmates, 4.9 percent;
– United States 146,234 inmates, 79.8 percent;

Total Inmates: 183,184 inmates.

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

Combining March 24th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 36,950 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 20.2 percent of the federal prison population; more than two in every ten inmates were criminal aliens.

With 23,554 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 63.7 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 12,134 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 7.1 percent of the federal prison population.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

April 12, 2018

Lars:

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 states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

This week we take a look at for your radio listeners at an illegal alien who is allegedly involved in trafficking drugs in the State of Oregon.

On Monday, March 12, 2018 an Oregon State Police (OSP) Trooper stopped a Nissan Versa on U.S. Highway 20, Mile Post 18, east of Bend being driven by Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos, age 28, a resident of Sonora, Mexico for a speed violation.

During the traffic stop the OSP brought to the scene a drug-detecting dog to inspect the vehicle. The OSP using the drug-detecting dog determined the presence of narcotics in the Nissan Versa.

After the OSP drug-detecting dog hit on the presence of narcotics in the Nissan Versa, OSP Troopers’ searched the vehicle and discovered over 36 pounds of methamphetamine.

When the methamphetamine was discovered in the car, OSP Troopers arrested Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos and he was subsequently transported to the Deschutes County Jail in Bend, Oregon where he is currently being incarcerated.

Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos (ID: 163523; DOB: 07/07/1989) has been charged with Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine, Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine, and Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine.

According to an OSP press release the Nissan Versa Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos was driving was stolen in February 2018 in Sonora, Mexico.

Wanting to know the actual current immigration status of Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos, I contacted via e-mail on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer/Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell to investigate if he was not legally present in the United States of America.

On the evening of Wednesday, April 11, 2018 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer/Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos:

“Here’s what we can provide you. You can attribute the following statement to me as an ICE spokesperson.”

“On April 11, ICE lodged a detainer with Deschutes County Jail in Bend, Oregon, on Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos, a citizen of Mexico who overstayed his term of admission to the U.S., after his arrest on several local charges.” – Carissa Cutrell

Analysis of the preceding information:

The short statement from ICE Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell on Mexican national Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos reveals three things about ICE’s enforcement of federal immigration law in Oregon.

First, ICE officers are placing immigration detainers on foreign nationals like Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos who officers believe have “overstayed his term of admission to the U.S.” incarcerated in local county jails and correctional facilities.

Second, ICE officers are checking out the identities of foreign nationals like Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos who allegedly commit “local crimes” incarcerated in local county jails and correctional facilities.

Third, reading between the lines, the ICE Spokesperson’s statement, “a citizen of Mexico who overstayed his term of admission to the U.S.,” is an indicator to me that the spokesperson does not believe Michel Alberto Fuentes Burgos is currently legally present in the United States of America.
