Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

August 16, 2018

Lars:

It has been an interesting second full week in the month of August 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 KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners three criminal aliens who were arrested and convicted in the State of Oregon for the November 2010 plot and attempt to kidnap a now former Columbia Sportswear Chairwoman.

What sparked my interest to do this report was Columbia Sportswear Corporation’s recent support of Oregon’s 1987 Sanctuary Statute ORS 181A.820.

On July 29, 2018 Tim Boyle, Columbia Sportswear CEO, wrote an editorial that was published in the Oregonian Newspaper titled “We are a state and nation of immigrants. Remember that when you vote on Measure 105” expressing his opposition to Measure 105.

An important fact, Measure 105 (Formerly Initiative Petition 22) if passed by Oregon voters in the 2018 General Election would abolish ORS 181A.820 and allow state, county and local law enforcement to fully cooperated in the enforcement of the United States of America’s immigration laws.

Back to events of November of 2010: Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, Ramon Alberto Midence and Jose Luis Arevalo were all arrested for the kidnapping plot and attempt of, at that time, 87 year-old Gert Boyle, Columbia Sportswear Chairwoman, in Clackamas County, Oregon (For those who have not made the family connection yet, Gert Boyle is Tim Boyle’s mother).

Clackamas County Jail records from April 14, 20l1 indicate the following criminal charges were filed against Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, Ramon Alberto Midence and Jose Luis Arevalo:

Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, age 40, was arrested on November 11, 2010. Gutierrez was charged with one count of First Degree Kidnapping, one count of Second Degree Kidnapping, two counts of Criminal Conspiracy, two counts of Solicitation to Commit a Crime, one count of Assault Four, one count of Robbery Two, one count of Burglary One and one count of Coercion. His bail was set at $500,000.00.

Ramon Alberto Midence, age 42, was arrested on November 14, 2010. Midence was charged with one count of First Degree Kidnapping, one count of Second Degree Kidnapping, two counts of Criminal Conspiracy, one count of Solicitation to Commit a Crime, one count of Robbery Two and one count of Burglary One. His bail was set at $500,000.00.

Jose Luis Arevalo, age 47, was arrested on November 15, 2010. Arevalo was charged with one count of First Degree Kidnapping, one count of Second Degree Kidnapping, two counts of Criminal Conspiracy, one count of Robbery Two and one count of Burglary One. His bail was set at $500,000.00.

During the time period 2010 – 2011 when Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, Ramon Alberto Midence and Jose Luis Arevalo were incarcerated at the Clackamas County Jail the jail honored U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers that were placed on the three men. The ICE detainers prohibited jail deputies from releasing them on bail.

On April 14, 201l in a Clackamas County Circuit Court room Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, the kidnap plot ringleader, pled guilty to one count of First Degree Kidnapping, one count of Burglary One and one count of Robbery Two. He was sentenced to 14 ½ years in prison.

Ramon Alberto Midence, a kidnap plot coconspirator, pled guilty to one count of First Degree Kidnapping, one count of Burglary One and one count of Robbery Two. He was sentenced to 9 ½ years in prison.

Jose Luis Arevalo, also a kidnap plot coconspirator, pled guilty to similar crimes and he was sentenced to approximately 6 years in prison.

Because of prior plea agreements all three men received lighter prison sentences for their crimes.

Columbia Sportswear Chairwoman Gert Boyle did not appear at the sentencing of Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, Ramon Alberto Midence or Jose Luis Arevalo but she released a statement through her attorney. Here is a significant excerpt from Gert Boyle’s statement:

“My family and I welcome today’s Sentencing Hearing as a final step in holding these three criminals accountable for their appalling crimes. They caused me to suffer indignity, violence and indescribable fear.” – Gert Bolye

Currently, Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez and Ramon Alberto Midence are still incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system for their crimes.

Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, age 47 (SID: 18715554; DOB: 11/29/1970) is incarcerated at the Two Rivers Correctional Institution. Gutierrez’s earliest release date from the DOC prison system is May 11, 2025.

Ramon Alberto Midence, age 49 (SID: 18719938; DOB: 01/09/1969) is incarcerated at the Snake River Correctional Institution. Midence’s earliest release date from the DOC prison system is May 15, 2020.

Jose Luis Arevalo’s , age 54 (SID: 18721077; DOB: 08/04/1963), current location is not available on VINE Victim Information and Notification Everyday.

Wanting to know the actual immigration status of Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, Ramon Alberto Midence and Jose Luis Arevalo, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, July 19, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Carissa Cutrell to investigate if Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, Ramon Alberto Midence and Jose Luis Arevalo were illegally present in the United States of America.

Approximately a week later, on the afternoon of Friday, July 27, 2018 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer Carissa Cutrell had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, Ramon Alberto Midence and Jose Luis Arevalo:

“Please see the statement below:”

“ICE has lodged detainers with the Oregon Department of Corrections on Nestor Gabrial Caballero-Guttierez and Ramon Alberto Midence-Valle, both nationals of Honduras. Both of these aliens are serving lengthy sentences for egregious felony convictions, including kidnapping.”

“Jose Arevalo-Aguilar entered ICE custody as a convicted aggravated felon Sept. 16, 2016. An immigration judge with the Executive Office for Immigration Review issued Arevalo-Aguilar a final order of removal Oct. 18, 2016, and ICE removed him to Guatemala Oct. 26, 2016. Arevalo-Aguilar had multiple felony convictions for egregious offenses including inflicting corporal injury to spouse/cohabitant, robbery, kidnapping and burglary. ”– Carissa Cutrell, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

Not getting my initial July 19, 2018 question to ICE Public Affairs Officer Cutrell answered on whether Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, Ramon Alberto Midence and Jose Luis Arevalo were illegally present in the country, I contacted ICE Public affairs on August 7, 2018 with the following question:

“Were Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, Ramon Alberto Midence or Jose Luis Arevalo illegally present in the United States of America during 2010 kidnapping attempt of, at that time, 87-year-old Columbia Sportswear Chairman Gert Boyle in Clackamas County, Oregon?”

On the same day in an information background statement an ICE official responded in this way to my preceding question: “No, they are removable based on their criminal convictions.”– ICE Public Affairs.

Analysis of the preceding information:

It is difficult to comprehend and unravel the thinking of Columbia Sportswear Corporation or CEO Tim Boyle’s current support of Oregon’s 1987 Sanctuary Statute ORS 181A.820 or the Sportswear Corporation or Mr. Boyle’s collective opposition to Measure 105 when less than eight years ago three criminal aliens from two Third World Central American countries, two men from Honduras and one man from Guatemala, plotted and attempted to kidnap Tim’s mother Gert Boyle, at that time Chairwoman of the company.

According to ICE Public Affairs, Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez, Ramon Alberto Midence and Jose Luis Arevalo were legally present in the United States of America (USA) when they orchestrated the plot and attempt to kidnap Gert Boyle, now former Columbia Sportswear Chairwoman.

I was unable to find out the circumstances that brought Honduran nationals Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez and Ramon Alberto Midence or Guatemalan national Jose Luis Arevalo legally to this county.

Apparently when times got financially tough for the three men in the “land of freedom and opportunity” they regressed to what bad people do in Central American countries from which they had arrived, they plotted and attempted to kidnap a rich person.

Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez and Ramon Alberto Midence are two of the 24 criminal aliens with ICE detainers incarcerated in the DOC prison system for the crime of kidnapping.

Criminal aliens were 24 of 278 inmates incarcerated in the DOC prison system for the crime of kidnapping — 8.63 percent of all inmates incarcerated for kidnapping in the state’s prisons.

Here is the good news from this report, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is at least, even in state with a Sanctuary Statute, able in find some level of cooperation with the Oregon Department of Corrections turning over criminal aliens after they complete DOC prison sentences. Case in point, the DOC turned over Jose Luis Arevalo to ICE for what would turn out to be him being removed from the country for being an aggravated felon.

We can only hope the cooperation between ICE and DOC continues so criminal alien aggravated felons like Nestor Gabriel Caballero Gutierrez and Ramon Alberto Midence are removed from the country after they complete prison sentences in the state.
