Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

November 8, 2018

Lars:

It has been an interesting first full week in the month of November 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 an illegal alien who is charged with the murder of a woman in the State of Oregon.

On Tuesday, October 30, 2018 Clackamas County Inter-agency Task Force (CCITF), and Portland Police Bureau homicide detectives and Missing Persons Unit concluded an investigation that resulted in the arrest of Martin Gallo-Gallardo, age 45, for allegedly murdering his wife Coral Rodriguez-Lorenzo, age 38, a resident of Southeast Portland, Oregon. Martin Gallo-Gallardo on October 29th while being interviewed by a bilingual detective confessed to the murder of Coral Rodriguez-Lorenzo. (See attachment with photos).

Martin Gallo-Gallardo (SID: 22751383; DOB: 11/3/72) is currently incarcerated at the Clackamas County Jail which is located in Oregon City, Oregon.

Wanting to know the immigration status of Martin Gallo-Gallardo, I contacted via e-mail on Wednesday, October 31, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman to investigate if he was illegally present in the United States of America.

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

Is Martin Gallo-Gallardo currently illegally present in the United States of America (USA)?

Was Martin Gallo-Gallardo illegally present in the USA when he allegedly murdered his wife?

Have ICE officers placed an immigration detainer on Martin Gallo-Gallardo since his incarceration in the Clackamas County Jail?

If ICE officers placed immigration an immigration detainer on Martin Gallo-Gallardo are Clackamas County Jail Deputies going to honor that immigration detainer?

Have ICE officers obtained federal judicial warrant for the arrest of Martin Gallo-Gallardo since he has been in the custody of the Clackamas County Jail?

Has Martin Gallo-Gallardo ever served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

Is ICE currently trying to remove Martin Gallo-Gallardo for a past crime he may have committed while illegally present in the country?

How many times has ICE removed Martin Gallo-Gallardo from the United States of America?

Do ICE officers know the actual county origin of Martin Gallo-Gallardo?

On the afternoon of Friday, November 2, 2018 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Martin Gallo-Gallardo:

“ICE maintains that cooperation by local law enforcement is an indispensable component of promoting public safety. Gallo-Gallardo is a citizen of Mexico who has been previously apprehended by the Border Patrol multiple times unlawfully entering the United States. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) placed an immigration detainer on Gallo-Gallardo on March 6, following his arrest for Felony Assault 4th degree. The Multnomah County Jail did not honor that detainer and Gallo-Gallardo was released on bond on March 8.

The fact is, ICE placed an immigration detainer on Gallo-Gallardo on March 6, following his arrest for Felony Assault 4th degree. The detainer specifically requested notification of Gallo-Gallardo’s release.  Under current Oregon law, Multnomah County does not honor detainers in any way. The jail did not contact ICE to provide advance notification of Gallo-Gallardo’s release, which is something routinely done by other counties. Because the detainer request was ignored, Gallo-Gallardo was released on bond on March 8.

In addition to false claims that ICE never filed a detainer, the county’s statement on this matter ignores the fact that there is no mechanism for a judge to issue a criminal warrant for an administrative immigration arrest. Oregon’s sanctuary policies fail to recognize federally established processes for the enforcement of immigration law, and they do so at the expense of the safety of their citizens.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Wanting to know more detailed information on the immigration status of Martin Gallo-Gallardo, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, November 5, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman:

Here are the written questions I sent to ICE Public Affairs Officer Tanya Roman:

Since ICE officers have placed an immigration detainer on Martin Gallo-Gallardo, will Clackamas County Jail Deputies’ honor that immigration detainer placed on Gallo-Gallardo?

Has Martin Gallo-Gallardo ever served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

How many actual times have ICE and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) removed Martin Gallo-Gallardo from the United States of America?

On the afternoon of November 5th here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Martin Gallo-Gallardo:

“Gallo-Gallardo, a citizen of Mexico unlawfully present in the United States, has not previously spent time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation. He was arrested by the Border Patrol three times in Arizona in 2001 and allowed to voluntarily return to Mexico each time. After his criminal arrest in March of this year, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) successfully faxed an immigration detainer to Multnomah County Jail, which was ultimately ignored. Following his release, multiple attempts by ICE to locate and arrest Gallo-Gallardo were unsuccessful.” – ICE Public Affairs.

A troubling fact, on September 1, 2018 foreign nationals who declared their country or origin as being Mexico were 103 of 133 criminal aliens convicted of homicidal crimes incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system — 77.44 percent of the alien inmates in the state’s prisons for homicidal crimes.

  1. THE DAILY CALLER

    EXCLUSIVE: OREGON AUTHORITIES RELEASED ILLEGAL ALIEN DESPITE ICE DETAINER — 7 MONTHS LATER, HE ALLEGEDLY KILLED HIS WIFE

    Will Racke | Immigration and Foreign Policy Reporte 6:54 AM 11/02/2018 | US

    The Oregon man who allegedly killed his wife in late October is an illegal alien who was released from county jail seven months ago, despite what immigration authorities say was an active detention request for the suspect, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

    Martin Gallo-Gallardo, 45, is charged with murder in the death of Coral Rodriguez-Lorenzo, 38, whose body was discovered Oct. 28 in Clackamas County, Oregon.

    The following day, detectives brought in Gallo-Gallardo for questioning, during which he confessed to killing Rodriguez-Lorenzo, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.

    Immigration authorities first discovered that Gallo-Gallardo, a Mexican national, was living in the U.S. illegally in March, when he was arrested by Portland police on felony domestic violence charges. Following the arrest, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged a civil immigration detainer on Gallo-Gallardo with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, but he was freed on bail after two days in jail.

    ICE confirmed Gallo-Gallardo’s immigration status and arrest history in a statement to Salem, Oregon-based crime researcher David Olen Cross, who shared it Thursday with TheDCNF.

    “Martin Gallo-Gallardo is a citizen of Mexico who unlawfully entered the United States. [ICE] placed an immigration detainer on Gallo Gallardo on March 6, following his arrest for Felony Assault 4th degree,” agency spokesperson Tanya Roman said, according to Cross. “The Multnomah County Jail did not honor that detainer and Gallo Gallardo was released on bond on March 8. Through failure to honor the ICE detainer, Gallo Gallardo has remained in the United States unlawfully since the Multnomah County Jail release.”

    Cross inquired about Gallo-Gallardo’s immigration status as a part of his research into criminal activity by noncitizens in Oregon on behalf of Republican state Sen. Kim Thatcher. His analyses help document the cost of incarcerating foreign nationals in the state prison system, where one in 15 inmates is a criminal alien.

    In a statement provided to TheDCNF, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office disputed ICE’s claim that it had asked jail officials to hold Gall-Gallardo on a detainer.

    “At no time prior to his court authorized release did MCSO receive a civil detainer or a criminal warrant from ICE that would have allowed us to keep him in custody,” Sgt. Brandon White, the agency’s public information officer, said. “If federal immigration authorities had reason to keep Martin Gallo-Gallardo in custody they failed to take the steps necessary to make that happen, including entering information into any law enforcement criminal databases. We received no communication from ICE in regards to Martin Gallo-Gallardo.”

    Oregon is one of the nation’s most active states when it comes to limiting cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities. It has had a sanctuary law on the books since 1987 that prohibits state and local law enforcement resources from being used to enforce federal immigration law.

    Oregon’s Democratic-controlled legislature expanded the sanctuary protections in 2017 with a law that forbids schools, courts and other public agencies from sharing information with immigration authorities unless required to do so by federal law.

    Reports of a high-profile murder allegedly committed by an illegal alien wanted by ICE come days ahead of the Nov. 6 elections, when Oregon voters will decide on a ballot initiative to overturn the sanctuary law. Known as Measure 105, the referendum is backed by about half of Oregon’s county sheriffs, mostly from rural, conservative-leaning parts of the state.

    Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese, whose agency released Gallo-Gallardo despite the ICE detainer, opposes the effort to repeal Oregon’s sanctuary laws.

    “Current law helps create bright lines for local law enforcement,” Reese said in a recent TV ad, according to NPR. “Communities we serve know that we’re focused on protecting and serving them. We’re not worried about their immigration issues.”

    Meanwhile, Gallo-Gallardo is being held in the Clackamas County jail without bail. He has entered a plea of not guilty and is expected to make his next court appearance on Nov. 6.

    During his interview with police, Gallo-Gallardo said he accidentally elbowed Rodriguez-Lorenzo in the face during a party in Multnomah County, KOIN6 News reported, citing a probable cause affidavit. Later, when they were driving in rural Clackamas County, he allegedly attacked her when she got out of the car to clean her face.

    “He then stated he attacked her, pushing her down where she hit her head and then began to stab her multiple times,” the affadavit states, according to KOIN6.

    The Gallo-Gallardo case is an example of how Oregon’s sanctuary laws can enable crimes against the very immigrants they are intended to protect, Roman says.

    “It’s unfortunate that law enforcement agencies like the Multnomah County Jail refuse to work with ICE to promote public safety by holding criminals accountable and providing justice and closure for their victims,” she said, according to Cross. “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.”

    With respect to immigration detention in Oregon, a U.S. magistrate judge ruled in 2014 that Clackamas County violated the Fourth Amendment rights of an illegal immigrant when it held her on an ICE detainer when she was eligible for bail.

    To avoid further civil lawsuits, the Oregon Sheriffs Association recommended jail officials stop responding to immigration detention requests unless they are backed by a federal arrest warrant.
