Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

May 30, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting last week in the month of May 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 a criminal illegal alien man who has been charged with illegal entry into the United States of America (USA) who has a criminal history in the State of Washington.

According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) press release dated May 9, 2019 titled “Convicted Sex Offender Arrested by Border Patrol” CBP agents arrested convicted sex offender Bernardino Sanchez-Perea, age 30, a Mexican national, 17.5 miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry and took him into custody for alleged illegal entry into USA:

“US Customs and
Border Protection

Convicted Sex Offender Arrested by Border Patrol

Release Date: May 9, 2019

CALEXICO, Calif. – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro Sector arrested a previously deported sex offender Wednesday morning.

On May 8, at around 10:50 a.m., agents assigned to the El Centro Station observed a man suspected of illegally entering the U.S. approximately 17.5 miles west of the Calexico West Port of Entry. Agents responded to the area and arrested the man and transported him to the El Centro station for immigration and criminal history screening.

Border Patrol agents conducted records checks, which revealed that the man, later identified as Bernardino Sanchez-Perea, a 30-year-old Mexican national, had a conviction for sex with a minor three years or younger on Sep. 12, 2010 out of Skagit County, Washington. He served 15 months in jail. Additionally, Sanchez was previously removed from the United States in 2011.

Sanchez is being held in federal custody pending further criminal prosecution.” – CBP Public Affairs.

Wanting additional information on immigration status of Bernardino Sanchez-Perea, I contacted via e-mail on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Ralph DeSio with a series of questions.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Public Affairs Officer Ralph DeSio forwarded my questions to Anthony S. Garcia, Border Patrol Agent, Public Affairs Office, assigned to the El Centro Sector.

Here are the questions I sent to U.S. CBP Public Affairs that were answered by CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia on Thursday, May 16, 2019:

Was Bernardino Sanchez-Perea illegally present in the USA when he was convicted of the sex crime against the child?

“Yes.” – CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia.

Is CBP the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) law enforcement agency responsible for removal of criminal aliens from the country if the crime they have been convicted of committing occurs within 100 miles of the USA border?

“The removal of criminal aliens from prison/jail falls within the responsibility of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement ICE anywhere within the U.S.” – CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia.

Skagit County, Washington is in northern part of the state, was CBP the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) law enforcement agency that took into Bernardino Sanchez-Perea custody after he completed his 15 month jail sentence for the sex crime against the child?

“ICE took custody.” – CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia.

Was Bernardino Sanchez-Perea incarcerated at the Skagit County Jail or in the Washington Department of Corrections when he was picked up for removal from the USA?

“Washington DOC-Shelton Corrections.” – CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia.

Was CBP the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) law enforcement agency that removed Bernardino Sanchez-Perea from the USA in 2011?

“ICE removed the subject.” – CBP Agent Anthony S. Garcia.

Mexican national Bernardino Sanchez-Perea 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.

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

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report for Recalcitrant Countries April 2019

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report for Recalcitrant Countries April 2019

May 29, 2019

Data Compiled By David Olen Cross

Information obtained from the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) on April 1, 2019 reveals that 54 of the 903 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) — 5.98 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 54 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 13 current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries were incarcerated in the DOC prison system on April 1, 2019:

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

Cuba (16 criminal aliens), Vietnam (12 criminal aliens), Laos (six 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 54 criminal alien inmates from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries by number and percentage incarcerated on April 1st in the state’s prisons.

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and percentages by countries of origin, by crime types or by the state’s counties, criminal aliens from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries pose a significant economic cost to Oregon tax payers.

An individual inmate incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 54 criminal alien prison population from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries is approximately ($5,846.04) per day, ($40,922.28) per week, and ($2,133,804.60) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 54 criminal aliens from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

May 23, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting last full week in the month of May 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 Pacific Northwest radio listeners an illegal alien who has been charged with multiple counts sexual molestation in Franklin County, Washington.

On Monday, May 13, 2019 I undertook an investigation into the immigration status of Jose C. Gomez (ID: 0000070201; DOB: May 13, 1976), age 43, who has been incarcerated at the Franklin County Jail located in Pasco, Washington since May 2, 2019.

A viewing of the Franklin County Corrections Daily In Custody Report dated May 13, 2019 revealed that Jose C. Gomez had multiple Child Molestation charges against him plus ICE had an immigration detainer (ICE Hold) placed on him:

Seeking information on the immigration status Jose C. Gomez, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, May 13, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman.

Here are the questions I sent via e-mail to ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman:

Is Jose C. Gomez illegally present in the United States of America (USA)?

Has Jose C. Gomez ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

How many times if any has Jose C. Gomez been removed from the USA?

If Jose C. Gomez has been previously removed from the USA, what were the dates, times and locations he was removed from the country?

Does ICE Public Affairs know Jose C. Gomez’s country of origin?

On Friday, May 17, 2019 ICE Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman sent via e-mail the following statement on alleged sexual molester Jose C. Gomez:

“On May 3, 2019, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged an immigration detainer on Jose C. Gomez aka Jose Gomez-Garcia, an illegally present citizen of Mexico, who is being held at the Franklin County Jail.

Gomez has previously been encountered by immigration authorities on two occasions. On March 31, 2007, and again on April 2, 2007, Gomez was apprehended by the Border Patrol attempting to illegally enter the U.S. near San Diego, CA. Both times, he was allowed to voluntarily return to Mexico rather than be detained for immigration removal proceedings.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

On Thursday, May 22, 2019 while preparing this report on twice deported illegal alien Jose C. Gomez, I found out the Franklin County’s Sheriff’s Office is now suppressing information on the immigration status of inmates; the Franklin County Corrections Daily In Custody Report no longer indicates if inmates have an immigration detainers (ICE Holds) placed on them — case in point Jose C.

The reason the Franklin County’s Sheriff’s Office is no longer showing ICE Holds in the
Franklin County Corrections Daily In Custody Report is Washington Governor Jay Inslee signed a law on Tuesday May 21, 2019 that prohibits the state, county and local law enforcement from inquiring about immigration status of inmates and inquiring about country of origin of inmates unless the information is directly relevant to a criminal investigation; furthermore, the law prohibits state prisons, county and local jails, from complying with federal immigration detainers or notifying ICE agents when criminal alien inmates are released from custody.

Beyond the DOC Mexican national incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per type of crime, criminal aliens from Mexico place a substantial economic burden on Oregonians.

An individual inmate incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for 721 Mexican national inmates is approximately ($78,055.46 per day, ($546,388.22) per week, and ($28,490,242.90) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 721 Mexican national inmates includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.
