Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
February 21, 2019
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.
