Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

February 21, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting third full week in the month of February 2019 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 an illegal alien who has been charged with illegal entry into the United States of America (USA) who has a criminal history in the State of Oregon.

According to a Yuma, Arizona Television news report, on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents came into contact with Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes (SID: 12507148; DOB: 08/25/1982), age 36, a Mexican national, 42 miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry and took him into custody for alleged illegal entry into USA.

My crime research data indicates that Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes has significant criminal history in the State of Oregon where in Marion County on August 8, 2011 he was arrested by the Hubbard Police Department for the crimes of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Weapon Use, Assault in the Second Degree Attempt and Theft in the Second Degree. Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes had an INS hold placed on him while he was incarcerated at the Marion County Correctional Facility (MCCF) which is located in Salem, Oregon.

Wanting clarification on immigration status of Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, February 4, 2019 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Ralph DeSio.

Here are some of the written questions I sent to U.S. CBP Public Affairs Officer DeSio:

Did U.S. Customs and Border Protection Public Affairs issue a press release when CBP agents took Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes into custody for alleged illegal entry into the USA?

If U.S. Customs and Border Protection Public Affairs issued a press release on CBP agents taking Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes into custody for alleged illegal entry into the USA could the CBP Public Affairs Officer please send me a copy of the press release or tell me where the press release is posted on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website?

Is Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes currently illegally present in the USA?

Has Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes ever served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

Is CBP currently trying to remove Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes for past crimes he may have committed while illegally present in the country?

How many times if any has CBP removed Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes from the USA?

Does CBP Public affairs know the actual county origin of Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes?

On Tuesday morning, February 5, 2019 U.S. CBP Public Affairs Officer DeSio sent me the following press release via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes:

Border Patrol Arrests Sureño Gang Member for Re-entry After Being Previously Removed

CALEXICO, Calif. –
Border Patrol agents assigned to El Centro Sector arrested a gang member Wednesday afternoon, 42 miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry, suspected of illegally entering the United States.

At around 5:30 p.m., Border Patrol agents patrolling west of the Calexico Port of Entry arrested Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes on suspicion of illegal entry into the United States and transported him to a Border Patrol facility for further processing.

Agents confirmed his identity and discovered he was a 36-year-old Mexican national that had been removed from the United States on two previous occasions. Agents also discovered that he had an extensive criminal history and served a 60 month sentence in Oregon for unlawful use of a weapon in 2011. Evangelista admitted that he is a member of the Sureño street gang.

Evangelista is being held in custody pending prosecution for felony Federal charges.

All arrested individuals are presumed innocent pending the outcome of legal proceedings.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation’s borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

In a separate e-mail on February 5th U.S. CBP Public Affairs Officer DeSio indicated that Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes had not previously served any time in federal prison for an immigration crime or violation.

Mexican national Hugo Evangelista-Ibanes is an example of the thousands of previously deported criminal aliens that U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents apprehend annually who try to illegally reenter the USA.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report January 2019

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report January 2019

February 16, 2019

By David Olen Cross

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nations boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is clearly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (Note: The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from January 26, 2019.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– México 21,691 inmates, 12.1 percent;
– Colombia 1,648 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,443 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,192 inmates, 0.7 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 8,804 inmates, 4.9 percent;
– United States 145,133 inmates, 80.7 percent;

Total Inmates: 179,911 inmates.

To explain the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

Combining January 26th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 34,778 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 19.3 percent of the federal prison population.

With 21,691 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 62.4 percent, they were the vast majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top five offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 10,778 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.4 percent of the federal prison population.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

February 14, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting second full week in the month of February 2019 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 an illegal alien who has been convicted of a federal drug crime in the State of Oregon.

Some background information, on January 4, 2018 Pedro Ibarra-Aragon, age 20, a California resident, was taken into law enforcement custody at the Motel 6 in Grants Pass, Oregon during a undercover police sting operation.

Detectives from Rouge Area Drug Enforcement (RADE) came into contact with Pedro Ibarra-Aragon who was driving a lowered green GMC pickup truck.

Law enforcement used a drug detecting dog (K-9) to search the pickup truck. The K-9 hit on the spare tire hanging under the truck.

Detectives took the tire to a Les Schwab tire store and had the tire removed from the rim and discovered 10 vacuum-sealed packages methamphetamine (meth) totaling 4.2 kilograms (9.259 pounds) of the illicit drug.

As a result of the discovery of the meth, Pedro Ibarra-Aragon (SID: 206900; DOB: 01/09/1998) was arrested by law enforcement and taken to the Josephine County Jail which is located in Grants Pass, Oregon. Pedro Ibarra-Aragon was charged with Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine and Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine.

On Wednesday, January 16, 2019 Pedro Ibarra-Aragon was sentenced in U.S. District Court to six years in federal prison for his role in delivering meth in Southern Oregon.

Wanting to know on immigration status of Pedro Ibarra-Aragon, I contacted via e-mail on Thursday, January 31, 2019 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 Pedro Ibarra-Aragon currently illegally present in the United States of America (USA)?

When Pedro Ibarra-Aragon was arrested by RADE for drug crimes was he illegally present in the USA?

Can ICE confirm if an immigration detainer was placed on Pedro Ibarra-Aragon during his incarceration at the Josephine County Jail?

Has Pedro Ibarra-Aragon ever served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

Is ICE currently trying to remove Pedro Ibarra-Aragon for a past crime he may have committed while illegally present in the country?

How many times if any has ICE removed Pedro Ibarra-Aragon from the USA?

Do ICE Officers know the actual county origin of Pedro Ibarra-Aragon?

On Tuesday morning, February 5, 2019 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Pedro Ibarra-Aragon:

“On Feb. 26, 2018, ICE lodged a detainer with the Josephine County Jail on Pedro Ibarra-Aragon, after he was arrested on local charges. Ibarra-Aragon is a citizen of Mexico and illegally present in the United States. He doesn’t have any prior encounters with ICE.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

Pedro Ibarra-Aragon (Register Number: 80704-065) is currently an inmate incarcerated in the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) prison system at FCI Sheridan, a BOP prison located in Sheridan, Oregon.

A disconcerting fact, none of the electronic and hardcopy news media covering the arrest and conviction of Pedro Ibarra-Aragon, who is an illegal alien Mexican national drug trafficker, even bothered to investigate his immigration status.

Beyond the DOC Mexican national incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per type of crime, criminal aliens from Mexico place a substantial economic burden on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for 726 Mexican national inmates is approximately ($78,596.76) per day, ($550,177.32) per week, and ($28,687,817.40) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 726 Mexican national inmates includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.
