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.
