Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
December 13, 2018
It has been an interesting second full week in the month of December 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 a criminal alien who is charged with murder in the State of Washington.
Since February 17, 2018 Adan Virgen-Ponce (ID: 0000064915; DOB: 02/21/81), age 37, has been incarcerated at the Franklin County Jail located in Pasco Washington where a viewing of the jail’s Daily Custody Report reveals he has been charged with First Degree Murder. Adan Virgen-Ponce’s bail is set at $1,000,000.00. He also has an ICE Hold.
A February 20, 2018 Pasco Police facebook posting reveals after an eight year saga Police Detectives with the help of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) were able to get Adan Virgen-Ponce extradited back to the United States of America from Mexico to face justice in connection with his part in the alleged stabbing death on February 7, 2010 of Froilan Godines, age 41.
Froilan Godines, a father of seven children, was killed while working as a doorman at the El Patron nightclub and restaurant in Pasco, Washington, the day before his 42nd birthday.
Wanting to know on immigration status of Adan Virgen-Ponce, I contacted via e-mail on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman.
Here are some of the written questions I sent to ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman:
Is Adan Virgen-Ponce currently illegally present in the United States of America (USA)?
When Adan Virgen-Ponce allegedly murdered Froilan Godines was Virgen-Ponce illegally present in the USA?
Can ICE confirm if an immigration detainer was placed on Adan Virgen-Ponce since he has been incarcerated at the Franklin County Jail?
If ICE Officers placed immigration detainer on Adan Virgen-Ponce will the Franklin County Jail honor that immigration detainer?
Has Adan Virgen-Ponce ever served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?
How many times has ICE removed Adan Virgen-Ponce from the USA?
Do ICE Officers know if Adan Virgen-Ponce’s actual county origin is Mexico?
On Thursday afternoon, December 13, 2018 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Adan Virgen-Ponce:
“ICE lodged a detainer with the Franklin County Jail on Adan Virgen-Ponce, aka Yovan lopez-Perez, a citizen of Mexico, after he was arrested on local charges. Virgen-Ponce has been removed him from the U.S. on six prior occasions and he voluntarily returned once. On May 10, 2004, Virgin-Ponce was convicted in U.S. District Court for violation of 8 USC 1325/Present Without Admission and was sentenced to 45-days incarceration.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.
ICE does not speak for local jurisdictions regarding their level of cooperation on detainers. Please contact the Franklin County Jail.” – ICE Public Affairs.
A troubling fact, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Border Patrol Criminal Alien Statistics 6,259 criminal aliens were taken into custody and arrested for attempting to illegally enter or reenter the USA in Fiscal Year 2018 Year to Date (FY2018YTD), October 1, 2017 – August 31, 2018 (Note: CBP’s Fiscal Year runs from October 1, 2017 – September 1, 2018).
