Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
June 6, 2019
It has been an interesting first full week in the month of June 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 at two criminal illegal alien brothers who have been charged with multiple sex crimes against children in the State of Oregon.
In April 2019 Detectives with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit conducted an investigated in connection to a report of children being sexually abused by several members of one family. Detectives learned from the investigation that the adults had sexually abused at least five children in Beaverton and Aloha, Oregon. The duration of the sex abuse occurred over a 15 year year period, the abuse ended in 2019 when it was first reported to law enforcement.
The resulting investigation of the sex abuse of five children led to Washington County Sheriff’s Detectives on April 13, 2019 to arrest Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez, age 33.On April 22, 2019 a Washington County grand jury indicted Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez.
On May 28, 2019 a second Washington County grand jury indicted Benito Juarez-Hernandez, age 39.
Benito Juarez-Hernandez (SID: 17812926; DOB: 03/29/1980), age 39, is currently incarcerated for the crime of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree at the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem, Oregon. The 39 year old brother has been charged with the following sex crimes:
• four counts of Sodomy in the First Degree;
• one count of Unlawful Sexual Penetration in the First Degree;
• six counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree.
Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez (SID: 118966; DOB: 09/30/1985), age 33, is currently incarcerated at the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon. The 33 year old bother has been charged with the following sex crimes:
• 18 counts of Sodomy in the First Degree;
• four counts of Sodomy in the Second Degree;
• four counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree;
• four counts Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree.
Seeking information on the immigration status Benito Juarez-Hernandez and Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez, I contacted via e-mail on Friday, May 31, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman with the following questions:
Are Benito Juarez-Hernandez and Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez illegally present in the United States of America (USA)?
Did ICE place an immigration detainer on Benito Juarez-Hernandez on October 18, 2013 when he was incarcerated at the Washington County Jail?
A follow up question, has ICE placed an immigration detainer on Benito Juarez-Hernandez since his incarceration in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system?
Did ICE place an immigration detainer on Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez since he has been incarcerated at the Washington County Jail?
Has Benito Juarez-Hernandez or Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?
How many times if any has Benito Juarez-Hernandez or Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez been removed from the USA?
If Benito Juarez-Hernandez or Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez has been previously removed from the USA, what were the dates, times and locations they were removed from the country?
Does ICE Public Affairs know Benito Juarez-Hernandez or Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez’s country of origin?
On Monday, June 3, 2019 ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following response to the preceding questions on Benito Juarez-Hernandez and Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez:
“Benito Juarez-Hernandez is a Mexican citizen who is illegally present in the United States. On June 25, 2014, Benito Juarez-Hernandez was convicted of Felony Sexual Abuse in the First Degree and sentenced to 75 months in jail. On Oct. 18, 2013, U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) placed a detainer with the Washington County Jail on Benito Juarez-Hernandez and later with the Oregon State Penitentiary. He was previously encountered by ICE in 2009, while being held at the Washington County Jail. Following that encounter, Benito Juarez-Hernandez voluntarily returned to Mexico. ICE has no immigration record of his return to the U.S.”
“Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez is a Mexican citizen who is illegally present in the United States. On April 17, 2019, ICE encountered and placed an immigration detainer on Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez at the Washington County Jail. ICE previously encountered Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez at the Washington County Jail on April 14, 2016. He was released prior to a detainer being placed.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.
“ICE places immigration detainers with law enforcement agencies on deportable aliens arrested and detained on criminal charges. By placing the immigration detainer, ICE seeks to take custody of aliens if they are released from local custody for any reason (e.g., post bond, charges dropped or released on their own recognizance).
In most cases, once these aliens that are pending criminal prosecution are transferred to ICE or otherwise enter ICE custody, ICE works with the prosecutor and law enforcement authorities (such as the district attorney’s office and relevant sheriff’s office) to ensure these aliens attend any and all criminal court proceedings. This ICE-DA cooperation involves transferring custody of aliens as necessary via “writs of Habeas Corpus” to further a criminal prosecution. (Such writs may also be used to ensure that aliens in ICE custody appear in court as witnesses.)
For aliens who are criminally convicted and sentenced, ICE pursues removing these aliens from the United States only after they have completed their imposed prison sentences. To save future detention time and taxpayer money, while these aliens are serving their prison sentences, ICE routinely pursues the lengthy administrative process of obtaining final orders of removal before a federal immigration judge (or administratively, if their situation does not entitle them to appear before an immigration judge). Consequently, in many cases, the time these aliens spend in immigration detention after they complete their criminal sentences is minimized; they can then be removed to their countries of origin shortly after they complete their prison sentences.” – ICE Public Affairs.
Some back ground information on criminal alien sex abusers from Washington County incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system:
Benito Juarez-Hernandez, a Mexican national, is one of 43 criminal aliens on April 1, 2019 from Washington County incarcerated in DOC prisons for the crime of sex abuse.
Mexican nationals were 161 of the 183 criminal alien sex abusers incarcerated in state’s prisons — 87.98 percent of the alien sex abusers in the state’s prisons.
