April 9, 2019

Data Compiled By David Olen Cross

Information obtained from the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) on February 1, 2019 reveals that 48 of the 913 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) in the state’s prison system were from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries that may not take back their own criminal citizens after they are released from DOC prisons and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for possible removal from the United States of America (USA) — 5.26 percent of the criminal alien prison population (Note: The names of recalcitrant countries that may not take back their own criminal citizens has been in a state of flux in recent years.):

Some background information, all 48 criminal aliens incarcerated in the DOC prison system from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries were identified by ICE and have immigration detainers placed on them.

Criminal aliens from 10 current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries were incarcerated in the DOC prison system on February 1, 2019:

Egypt (two criminal aliens), Ethiopia (two criminal aliens), Bhutan (one criminal alien) and Iraq (one criminal alien) were the four current designated “at risk of non-compliance” (ARNC) countries;

Cuba (14 criminal aliens), Vietnam (12 criminal aliens), Laos (eight criminal aliens), Cambodia (four criminal aliens), China (three criminal aliens) and Burma (one criminal alien) were the six current designated “recalcitrant / uncooperative” (RUC) countries.

Using DOC ICE detainer numbers, the following table reveals the self-declared countries of origin of the 48 criminal alien inmates from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries by number and percentage incarcerated on February 1st in the state’s prisons.
