Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
May 3, 2018
It has been an interesting first week in the month of May 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 a foreign national convicted and sentenced for murdering a Oregon State Police Trooper.
On October 2, 1992 Francisco Manzo-Hernandez (SID: 6969819; DOB: 04/23/1964) was arrested by Oregon law enforcement near Klamath Falls for allegedly shooting to death of Oregon State Police (OSP) Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter, age 34, on September 30, 1992.
Just over two years after shooting to death OSP Trooper Clodfelter, Francisco Manzo-Hernandez was sentenced on December 8, 1994 in a Klamath County Circuit Court jury trial to life in prison without parole.
Most recently Francisco Manzo-Hernandez has been incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution (EOCI) located near Pendleton, Oregon.
Some detailed background information:
On September 30, 1992 Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter stopped a car occupied by three men near Klamath Falls, Oregon. During the traffic stop OSP Trooper Clodfelter arrested the driver of the car for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII).
The two passengers in the car stopped by the OSP Trooper included Francisco Manzo-Hernandez and another man. Both men were intoxicated.
OSP Trooper Clodfelter, wanting to prevent Francisco Manzo-Hernandez or the other man from driving drunk, volunteered to drive the men home. The OSP Trooper frisked the two men before placing them in the back of his patrol car.
Tragically, OSP Trooper Clodfelter missed a 38 caliber handgun Francisco Manzo-Hernandez had hidden on his person.
Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter, while attempting to drive the two men home, was shot twice in the back of the head by Francisco Manzo-Hernandez.
Wanting to know the actual current immigration status of Francisco Manzo-Hernandez, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, April 30, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer/Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell to investigate if Manzo-Hernandez was illegally present in the United States of America when he murdered OSP Trooper Clodfelter.
On the morning of Thursday, May 3, 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 Francisco Manzo-Hernandez:
“Here’s a statement from ICE:”
“On March 31, 1997, the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) lodged a detainer with the Oregon Department of Corrections on Francisco Manzo-Hernandez, a citizen of Mexico illegally present in the U.S. The INS previously removed Manzo-Hernandez to Mexico in December 1991 through the Nogales, Arizona, border crossing.”
“ON BACKGROUND: In 2003, when the Department of Homeland Security was created, the Immigration and Naturalization Service and U.S. Customs Service merged to become U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Detainers lodged by the former INS are still valid under ICE.” – Carissa Cutrell
Analysis of the preceding information:
The statement from ICE Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell reveals considerable information about the immigration status of Francisco Manzo-Hernandez:
Francisco Manzo-Hernandez is a Mexican national illegally present in the United States who has been previously removed by the INS to Mexico in December of 1991.
On or after December of 1991 Francisco Manzo-Hernandez illegally reentered the U.S.
Approximately nine months after his removal from the country, illegal alien Francisco Manzo-Hernandez, shot to death Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter on September 30, 1992 after a traffic stop by the OSP Trooper.
Mexican national Francisco Manzo-Hernandez is one of the 137 criminal aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections prison system incarcerated for the crime of homicide.
