Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

October 11, 2018

Lars:

It has been an interesting first full week in the month of October when it comes to criminal 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 three illegal aliens who were sentenced, two in Yamhill and one in Multnomah County Circuit Courts, to serve time in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system for the deaths of three of the state’s residents.

Ignacio Merendon-Zerega (SID: 7213917; DOB: 11/1962) while Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) killed Judyth Anne Cox, a 66-year old wife, mother of two and grandmother of six, a resident of Newberg, in Yamhill County on December 3, 2007.

Currently Ignacio Merendon-Zerega is incarcerated at the Snake River Correctional Institution located in Ontario, Oregon. A visit to the DOC Oregon Offender Search webpage reveals that Ignacio Merendon-Zerega is being incarcerated for one count of Manslaughter I, one count Driving Under Influence Felony and one count of Failure to Perform Duties Driver Injury. Ignacio Merendon-Zerega entered the DOC prison system on May 6, 2008, his earliest release date is March 27, 2022

Leonel Zurita-Loeza (SID: 17045856; DOB: 09/1981) while driving DUII killed Carma Colleen Smith, a 52-year old wife, mother of seven and grandmother of four, a resident of Dayton, in Yamhill County on May 11, 2008.

Currently Leonel Zurita- Loeza is incarcerated at the Two Rivers Correctional Institution located in Umatilla, Oregon. A visit to the DOC Oregon Offender Search webpage reveals Leonel Zurita- Loeza is being incarcerated for one count of Manslaughter I and four counts of Assault III. Leonel Zurita- Loeza entered the DOC prison system on August 14, 2008, his earliest release date is March 1, 2023.

Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez (SID: 16599221; DOB: 10/1978) while driving DUII killed John Zupan (founder of Zupan’s Markets), a 66-year old father of two, in Multnomah County on August 30, 2011.

Currently Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez is incarcerated at the Oregon State Penitentiary located in Salem, Oregon. A visit to the DOC Oregon Offender Search webpage reveals Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez is being incarcerated for one count of Manslaughter II. Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez entered the DOC prison system on January 20, 2012, his earliest release date is February 26, 2019.

Wanting to know the current actual immigration status of Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza and Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez, I contacted via e-mail on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman to investigate the immigration status of the three DOC inmates.

Here are some of the written questions I sent to ICE Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman:

Were Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza and Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez illegally present in the United States of America when they killed the three Oregon residents?

Have ICE Officers placed immigration detainers on Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza and Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez since their incarceration in the DOC prison system?

If ICE Officer’s placed immigration detainers on Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza and Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez will DOC prison officials honor those immigration detainers?

Have ICE officers obtained federal judicial warrants for the arrests Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza and Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez since they have been in custody of the DOC?

Have Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza and Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez ever served time in a federal prison for immigration crimes or violations?

How many times if any has ICE removed Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza and Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez from the United States of America?

Do ICE Officers know the actual countries of origin of Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza and Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez?

Approximately two days later, on the morning of Thursday, October 11, 2018 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on the three DOC inmates immigration status:

“Here is our response to your inquiry.

“These individuals have demonstrated that they are a threat to their communities. It is the mission of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to protect public safety by enforcing immigration laws and removing those who threaten that safety from our communities.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs.

“EXTERNAL BACKGROUND (To be attributed to ICE Official):

Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza and Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez are illegally present in the United States.

Immigration detainers have been placed on all three individuals.

Merendon-Zerego and Zurit-Loeza are citizens of Mexico

Ryenoso-Ramirez is a citizen of Guatemala.

All three detainers are being honored by the Oregon Department of Corrections (ODOC).

ICE has not obtained federal judicial warrants for the civil immigration arrests Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza or Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez because there is no basis by which to do so.

ICE has no record of these individuals previously serving time in federal prisons for crimes related to immigration violations.

Merendon-Zerega has been previously removed from the U.S. once. There are no prior removal records for Zurita-Loeza or Reynoso-Ramirez.” – ICE Public Affairs
