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 962 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($104,146.12) per day, ($729,022.84) per week, and ($38,013,333.80) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 962 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

June 21, 2018

Lars:

It has been an interesting third full week in the month of June 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 KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners illegal aliens who are allegedly traffickers of drugs in the State of Oregon.

On Friday, October 27, 2017 U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agents culminated a narcotics trafficking investigation and a undercover operation by serving search warrants on the residences of Angel Emir Cardenas age 27, Angel Vega-Sillas, age 35, and Apolonio Vidana Angulo, age 39, in northeast Salem, Oregon.

The DEA agents searching the three men’s residences discovered more than 18 pounds of methamphetamine, some cocaine and a trace amount of heroin.

After serving search warrants and the discovery of the illicit drugs, DEA agents’ arrested Angel Emir Cardenas, Angel Vega-Sillas and Apolonio Vidana Angulo and they were subsequently transported to the Marion County Correctional Facility (MCCF) in Salem, Oregon where they are currently being incarcerated.

A search and check of the MCCF website reveals the criminal charges facing the men:

Angel Emir Cardenas (SID: 17155691; DOB: 02/10/1990) has been charged with three counts of Delivery of Methamphetamine, one count of Delivery of Heroin and two counts of Child Neglect in the First Degree. Cardenas’ bail has been set at $2,000,000.00.

Angel Vega-Sillas (SID: 22561705; DOB: 05/05/1982) has been charged with three counts of Delivery of Methamphetamine, one count of Delivery of Heroin and two counts of Child Neglect in the First Degree. Vega-Sillas’ bail has been set at $2,000,000.00.

Apolonio Vidana Angulo (SID: 22561677; DOB: 04/10/1978) has been charged with two counts of Delivery of Methamphetamine, one count of Delivery of Heroin and one count of Delivery of Cocaine. Angulo’s bail has been set at $2,000,000.00.

Wanting to know the actual current immigration status of Angel Emir Cardenas, Angel Vega-Sillas and Apolonio Vidana Angulo, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, June 4, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer/Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell to investigate if the three men illegally present in the United States of America.

On the afternoon of Tuesday, June 12th here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer/Spokesperson Carissa Cutrell had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Angel Emir Cardenas, Angel Vega-Sillas and Apolonio Vidana Angulo:

“Here’s a statement from ICE on the three individuals arrested by DEA. You can attribute to me as an ICE spokesperson.”

“ICE has lodged detainers on Angel Vegas-Sillas and Apolonio Vidana-Angulo, both citizens and nationals of Mexico, with the Marion County Jail following their arrests by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Vegas-Sillas was previously removed to Mexico in April 2009, May 2010 and December 2011. Vidana-Angulo was granted voluntary return to Mexico in January 2001 after Border Patrol discovered him being smuggled in the trunk of a car at a U.S. checkpoint. ICE has not lodged a detainer on the third individual because he is not subject to removal.”

“The Marion County Jail does not accept or honor ICE detainers without a criminal warrant issued by a magistrate judge. It prohibits ICE from entering the jail or conducting interviews with inmates, and it will not notify ICE of release dates of individuals with active detainers. ICE maintains that cooperation by local law enforcement is an indispensable component of promoting public safety. Sanctuary policies not only provide a refuge for illegal aliens, but they also shield criminal aliens who prey on people in their own and other communities.” – Carissa Cutrell, ICE Spokesperson.

Analysis of the preceding information:

Two out of the three men arrested on October 27, 2017 by the U.S. DEA agents on various drug charges were identified by ICE officers as being Mexican nationals illegally present in the United States of America.

Angel Vegas-Sillas was deported to Mexico in April 2009, May 2010 and December 2011; so Vegas-Sillas was undoubtedly illegally present in the USA when he was arrested by the DEA for multiple drug crimes.

Apolonio Vidana-Angulo was deported to Mexico January 2001; so Vidana-Angulo was illegally present in the USA when he was arrested by the DEA for multiple drug crimes.

A positive fact, ICE officers are monitoring inmates at the Marion County Correctional Facility (MCCF) and placing immigration detainers on previously deported illegal aliens incarcerated at the jail.

A negative fact, according to Ms. Cutrell, the ICE Spokesperson, the MCCF “does not accept or honor ICE detainers without a criminal warrant issued by a magistrate judge. It prohibits ICE from entering the jail or conducting interviews with inmates, and it will not notify ICE of release dates of individuals with active detainers.”

Lars, the third full week of June and another criminal alien report for Lars Larson Show KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners.

Jeff Kropf Radio Show: Criminal Participants in the U.S. Citizens and Immigration Service (CIS), Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program

Jeff Kropf Radio Show: Criminal Participants in the U.S. Citizens and Immigration Service (CIS), Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program

June 20, 2018

Mr. Kropf:

Today we take a look at for your KSLM AM 1220 radio listeners the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and troubling facts about the number of DACA requesters who have been arrested.

Furthermore, we will name for your radio show listeners three illegal aliens who have been DACA requesters who have been arrested and convicted of serious crimes here in the Pacific Northwest part of the United States of America.

Here is a description of what DACA is and what it isn’t:

“What Is DACA

On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide lawful status.” – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

Individuals’ who are eligible and want to participate in the DACA program must meet seven requirements:

Guidelines

You may request DACA if you:

1. Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;

2. Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;

3. Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;

4. Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making your request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS;

5. Had no lawful status on June 15, 2012;

6. Are currently in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and

7. Have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.” – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

This week some troubling facts came to light, between 2012 and 2018 the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program had 59,886 DACA requestors who were approved for the program that had been arrested — 7.76 percent of the DACA requesters (U.S. CIS source of data: DACA Requestors with an IDENT Response – preview.uscis.gov.)

More troubling, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services DACA program approved 53,792 DACA requestors with prior arrests.

Additionally troubling, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services DACA program approved 7,814 DACA requestors with later arrests.

Here are examples of three DACA requestors (participants) Francisco J. Rodriguez-Dominguez, Salvador Diaz-Garcia and Jonathan Alcantara Romero who have serious criminal convictions.

Francisco J. Rodriguez-Dominguez (It is unknown if CIS terminated his participation in DACA.)

On Sunday, March 26, 2017 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Deportation officers arrested Mexican national Francisco J. Rodriguez-Dominguez, age 25, at his residence in Portland, Oregon. The reason ICE officers arrested Rodriguez-Dominguez was apparently related to a local conviction for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII).

Some background information: Francisco J. Rodriguez-Dominguez is a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) participant.

Wanting to know more details on the immigration status of Francisco J. Rodriguez-Dominguez, I contacted March 28, 2017 via a cell phone call Northwest Immigration and Customs (ICE) Spokesperson Rose M. Richeson.

The same day, on March 28th, here is what ICE Spokesperson Richeson had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Francisco J. Rodriguez-Dominguez:

“The following information can be attributed to me – Rose Richeson, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson: Deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) took Mr. Rodriguez into custody March 26. He was targeted for arrest based upon his guilty plea in December to a charge of driving under the influence of intoxicants, an offense ICE deems a threat to public safety. Mr. Rodriguez was transferred to the Northwest Detention Center and subsequently released on bond March 27 pending the outcome of removal proceedings before an immigration judge with the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review.

ON BACKGROUND (from an ICE official):

ICE has arrested recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) during enforcement operations in the past who, based on their criminal history, fall under ICE’s enforcement priorities, including individuals who pose a potential threat public safety. I would refer you to our colleagues at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for more details about DACA eligibility and disqualifying factors like criminal convictions.” – Rose M. Richeson, ICE Spokesperson.

As of June 19, 2018 I don’t know Francisco J. Rodriguez Dominguez’s current location.

Analysis of the preceding information:

It appears ICE Deportation officers arrested Francisco J. Rodriguez Dominguez because he had committed a significant misdemeanor, a DUII, and he posed a threat to public safety of the citizens and residents of the country, furthermore, he violated the terms of his DACA status.

A troubling fact, according to a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) press release dated March 20, 2017 titled “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Declined Detainer Outcome Report” since April 2014 the Multnomah County Jail will not honor an ICE detainer without court order or warrant.

Salvador Diaz-Garcia (CIS terminated his participation in DACA)

On Thursday, June 29, 2017 Salvador Diaz-Garcia (ID: 1953541; DOB: 2/06/94), 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 Regional Justice Center. website revealed Salvador Diaz-Garcia had 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 Spokeswoman 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, ICE Spokesperson.

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, CIS Spokesperson.

On June, 19, 2018 Salvador Diaz-Garcia was incarcerated at the King County Regional Justice Center.

Analysis of the preceding information:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ termination of Salvador Diaz-Garcia being an active Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipient means there is one less of the approximately 17,843 active US CIS DACA recipients living in the State of Washington. 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 King County, Washington, where the City of Burien is located, as sanctuary for illegal aliens.

Jonathan Alcantara Romero (CIS terminated his participation in DACA)

On Wednesday, August 30, 2017 Jonathan Alcantara-Romero (SID: 20837259; DOB: 5/13/1991), 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.

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, ICE Spokesperson.

Jonathan Alcantara-Romero has been incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system since December 19, 2017 at the Oregon State Penitentiary for the crime of First Degree Sex Abuse. Alcantara’s earliest release date is July 20, 2018.

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 participant 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).

Jeff, based on my experience of researching foreign national crime (criminal aliens) locally and nationally over the last 10 years, I believe states or localities that have sanctuary laws, ordinances or resolutions have higher levels of alien crime.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection: Criminal Alien Report for Fiscal Year 2018 Year to Date

U.S. Customs and Border Protection: Criminal Alien Report for Fiscal Year 2018 Year to Date

June 18, 2018

By David Olen Cross

United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is an important element of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) who along with other elements of DHS collectively work together in attempting to keep our nations citizens and residents safe from foreign national threats to public safety.

A critical responsibility of U.S. Customs and Border Protection is preventing foreign nationals (criminal aliens) who have been convicted of domestic or foreign crimes and deported from the country from illegally entering or reentering the United States of America.

The U.S. Border Patrol Criminal Alien Statistics webpage is an excellent source for information that indicates the number of criminal aliens CBP caught, interdicted or prevented from entering the country. Moreover, the Criminal Alien Statistics webpage reveals the types of prior criminal convictions that prohibited them by federal law from being legally present in the country.

For Fiscal Year 2018 Year to Date (FY2018YTD), October 1, 2017 – May 31, 2018, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has taken into custody and arrested 4,886 criminal aliens (Note: CBP’s Fiscal Year runs from October 1, 2017 – September 1, 2018).

Listed below are the total criminal convictions of the 4,886 criminal aliens by types and numbers of crimes for FY2018YTD; the most recent U.S. Customs and Border Protection criminal alien numbers available were posted on the CBP webpage on June 8, 2018 (Note: The preceding CBP number of criminal aliens doesn’t match the actual number of illegal alien criminals because some aliens had more than one criminal conviction.).

Types of Criminal Convictions                                Number Criminal Convictions

– Assault, battery, domestic violence                                                  407;

– Burglary, robbery, larceny, theft, fraud                                            256;

– Driving under the influence                                                              844;

– Homicide, manslaughter                                                                      2;

– Illegal drug possession, trafficking                                                   641;

– Illegal entry, re-entry                                                                     2,812;

– Illegal weapons possession, transport, trafficking                             78;

– Sexual offenses                                                                                  55;

– Other offenses                                                                               1,032.

Total Number of Criminal Convictions:                                      6,127

Explaining the preceding numbers, U.S. Customs and Border Protection took into custody and arrested for FY2018YTD 4,886 criminal aliens having 6,127 previous criminal convictions.

To help politicians, electronic / hardcopy media outlets or interest persons put a real world face on some of the 4,886 criminal aliens that were arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection for illegally entering or reentering the country during FY2018YTD the CBP Newsroom webpage is a starting point to look for local or national media releases on criminal aliens.

Wanting to find out if U.S. Customs and Border Protection detained and arrested any criminal aliens convicted of crimes in the State of Oregon, I clicked on the upper left side of the CBP Newsroom webpage on News Releases and opened the Media Releases webpage.

Near the top of the CBP Media Releases webpage I set the date search criteria to reflect the FY2018YTD time period (October 1, 2017 – May 31, 2018), set the Media Releases box to read Local Media Releases, typed in the Keywords box Oregon, clicked the Apply button and multiple stories that fit the parameters of my search appeared in the form of individual press releases.

Here are excerpts and hyperlinks to five U.S. Customs and Border Protection press releases about criminal aliens with past criminal convictions apprehended by CBP for illegal reentry into the country with a past connection to Oregon:

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

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

June 8, 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 May 26, 2018.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– México 23,532 inmates, 12.8 percent;
– Colombia 1,677 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,461 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,156 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 9,063 inmates, 4.9 percent;
– United States 146,331 inmates, 79.9 percent;

Total Inmates: 183,220 inmates.

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

Combining May 26th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 36,889 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 20.1 percent of the federal prison population; more than two in every ten inmates were criminal aliens.

With 23,532 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 63.8 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 12,115 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 7.1 percent of the federal prison population.
