Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

March 28, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting last full week in the month of March 2019 when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

For this week’s criminal alien report we take a look for a look at for you radio listeners an immigration enforcement story out the state of Idaho.

On March 11, 2019 in the state of Idaho District Judge Joel Tingey in a Bonneville County District Court room sentenced (CR-2018-9113 | State of Idaho vs. Luis Felipe Corona) Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero (ID: 47065; DOB: 04/16/1994), age 24, to two-to-three years in prison, suspended for five years of probation for his guilty plea to Felony Children-Injury to Child. Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero was also sentenced to undergo sex offender treatment.

Some background information, apparently ICE agents came into contact with Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero when he was arrested in January 2018 for drug charges in Bingham County, Idaho.

The consequences of Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero’s drug charges would result in him having a deportation hearing.

While Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero was incarcerated facing possible deportation at the Bingham County Jail, the Idaho Falls Police Department investigated Corona-Guerrero for alleged sex abuse of a 16 year old girl. The police sex crime investigation resulted in Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero being initially charged with Children-Sexual Battery of Minor Child 16 to 17 Years of Age-Sex.

Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero was sentenced to probation in September 2018 for the drug possession case in Bingham County.

Currently Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero is detainee at the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center in the state of Washington.

Wanting more detailed information on the immigration status Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, March 25, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs.

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

Did ICE place an immigration detainer on Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero during his incarceration at the Bingham County Jail?

Was Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero illegally present in the United States of America (USA) when he was convicted of the drug crime in September 2018 and convicted of the sex crime in March 2019 in the state of Idaho?

Who was U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) law enforcement agency that arrested, took into custody and transported Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero to the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center?

Has Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

How many times if any has Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero been removed from the USA?

Does ICE know if of Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero’s county of origin is Mexico?

What DHS law enforcement agency will remove Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero from the USA?

On Wednesday, March 27, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Western Region Communications Director Paige D. Hughes sent us the following information on Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero:

“Mr. Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero is a twice convicted felon who is unlawfully present in the United States. He is a citizen of Mexico who entered the U.S. on an unknown date at an unknown location. His two felony convictions are possession of controlled substance, methamphetamine, Oct. 3, 2018, and for the offense of children-injury to child, Mar. 12, 2019. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) lodged an immigration detainer on Mr. Corona with Bingham County Jail, Feb. 16, 2018, following his arrest. He was transferred to the Bonneville County Jail in October, and the detainer followed his transfer. ICE took custody of Mr. Corona, Mar. 12, 2019, and transported him to the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington, Mar. 20, 2019. He is currently in removal proceedings.” – Paige D. Hughes, ICE Western Region Communications Director.

“ON BACKGROUND (DETAINERS)

Detainers serve as a legally authorized request, upon which a law enforcement agency may rely, to continue to maintain custody of an alien for up to 48 hours so that ICE may assume custody for removal purposes. Pursuant to ICE policy, all ICE detainers are submitted with an accompanying administrative arrest warrant or warrant of removal depending upon the circumstances of the individual case. ICE places immigration detainers when the agency possesses probable cause to believe an alien is deportable from the United States.

Congress has established no process, requirement, or expectation directing ICE to seek a judicial warrant from already overburdened federal courts before taking custody of an alien on civil immigration violations. This idea is simply a figment created by those who wish to undermine immigration enforcement and excuse the ill-conceived practices of sanctuary jurisdictions that put politics before public safety.

When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release a criminal alien onto the streets, they have declined an ICE detainer. This negatively impacts public safety and ICE’s efficiency in the apprehension of criminal aliens. Federal immigration laws authorize DHS to issue detainers and provide ICE broad authority to detain removable aliens. https://www.ice.gov/sites/default/files/documents/Document/2017/I-247A.pdf”– ICE Public Affairs.

The challenges U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents face in the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws should be regionally if not nationally front page news — case in point —  the preceding story of the apprehension of criminal illegal alien sex offender Luis Felipe Corona-Guerrero.

Pacific Northwest residents in states of Idaho, Oregon and Washington and beyond should be grateful and thankful to the men and women of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for protecting the personal security and public safety of the citizens and residents of the USA.

Lars, the last full week in the month of March 2019 and another criminal alien report for Lars Larson Show KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

March 21, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting third full week in the month of March 2019 when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

For this week’s criminal alien report we take for a look at for you radio listeners a five time deported criminal illegal alien who was recently convicted and sentenced in a federal courtroom in the State of Washington for illegal reentry into the United State of America.

On February 1, 2019 in Spokane, Washington, Joseph H. Harrington, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington announced that Senior United States District Judge Wm. Fremming Nielsen sentenced Juan Gomez-Fonseca (Register Number: 10137-085), age 49, a resident of Bridgeport, Washington to a 5-year federal prison term for being an Alien Illegally in the United States After Previously Being Deported.

Some background history, during Juan Gomez-Fonseca’s time in the in the United States he has accumulated a criminal record that includes convictions for False Imprisonment, Domestic Violence Assault, Driving Under the Influence, Obstruction of a Police Officer, Illegal Entry into the United States and being an Alien in the United States (U.S.) after Deportation.

Currently Juan Gomez-Fonseca (ID: 1497696; DOB: 07/24/1971) is incarcerated as a contract inmate at the Benton County Jail in Kennewick, Washington.

Wanting more detailed information on the immigration status Juan Gomez-Fonseca, I contacted via e-mail on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Border Protection (ICE) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Tanya J. Roman.

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

During Juan Gomez-Fonseca’s multiple apprehensions for being illegally present in the U.S. what were the actual years, dates and locations that he was arrested and then removed from the country?

Who were the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) law enforcement agencies that arrested and removed Juan Gomez-Fonseca from the U.S. on his previous illegal forays into the county?

A follow-up question, what DHS law enforcement agency will remove Juan Gomez-Fonseca from the U.S. when he finishes his five year federal prison term?

Has Juan Gomez-Fonseca ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

On Thursday, March 21, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman sent us the following information on Juan Gomez-Fonseca:

“Juan Gomez-Fonseca is a citizen of Mexico and illegally present in the United States. On Jan. 19, 1995, Gomez-Fonseca voluntarily returned to Mexico. He has been removed from the U.S. a total of five times from 1995-2015. The U.S. Border Patrol lodged a detainer with the U.S. Marshals on March 16, 2018 and is expected be taken into custody after finishing his sentence with the Bureau of Prisons.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

“ON BACKGROUND:

On Jan. 18, 1995, Gomez-Fonseca was encountered by U.S. Border Patrol and voluntarily returned to Mexico the same day.

On Nov. 4, 1997, Gomez- Fonseca was encountered by Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) Institutional Hearing Program (IHP) while incarcerated in California. He was ordered removed by an Immigration Judge on Nov. 4, 1997 and removed to Mexico on Dec. 2, 1997.

On June 9, 2000, Gomez- Fonseca was encountered by INS Criminal Alien Program (CAP) in Okanogan County Jail and prosecuted for Reentry after Removal.

On March 1, 2001, Gomez- Fonseca was convicted in the District Court for the Eastern District of Washington for Alien in the U.S. After Deportation in violation of 8 USC 1326 and sentenced to 46 months confinement. He was removed to Mexico on Oct. 28, 2003.

On April 15, 2005, Gomez- Fonseca was convicted in the District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania for Alien in the U.S. After Deportation in violation of 8 USC 1326 and sentenced to 77 months confinement.

On Nov. 12, 2010, Gomez- Fonseca had his order of removal reinstated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and he was returned to Mexico.

On Aug. 26, 2015, Gomez- Fonseca was encountered by ICE ERO and was removed to Mexico on Aug. 28, 2015.

On March 13, 2018, Gomez- Fonseca was encountered by U.S. Border Patrol CAP in Okanogan County Jail and placed into proceedings.

On Jan. 15, 2019, Gomez- Fonseca was convicted in the District Court for the Eastern District of Washington for Alien in the U.S. After Deportation in violation of 8 USC 1326 and sentenced to 60 months confinement.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Although the location, the final destination, of where Mexican national Juan Gomez-Fonseca will serve his time in the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) prison system is unclear at this time, Gomez-Fonseca will be joining approximately 10, 732 criminal aliens incarcerated in federal prisons for immigration crimes.

Lars, the third full week in the month of March 2019 and another criminal alien report for Lars Larson Show KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners.
