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 were 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.”
