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:
