Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

June 20, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting third full week in the month of June 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 allegedly murdered a man in King County, Washington.

On Monday June 17, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Tanya J. Roman sent the “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” an ICE Public Affairs’ news release titled “Cooperation between ICE, local law enforcement makes for safer communities.”

Elder Carceres-Coello aka Elder Carceres (ID: 217025211; DOB: Sep 25, 1987), age 31, was one of seven criminal aliens included in the ICE Public Affairs’ news release:

“County jail ignores ICE detainer, Honduran mans suspected of murder after release
In September 2016, ICE located Elder Carceres-Coello, an illegally present Honduran man with multiple prior criminal convictions being held at a county jail in Washington. ICE lodged a detainer with the jail, but in February 2017, county officials did not honor the detainer and released him. In July 2017, Carceres-Coello was again arrested, this time for theft and property destruction. In July 2017, despite criminal charges, convictions and previous immigration removals going back to 2005, county jail officials released Carceres-Coello without notifying ICE. In August 2017, Carceres-Coello was arrested yet again, this time for homicide and robbery. As of June 2019, he being held on both murder and robbery charges at a local county jail.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

Elder Carceres-Coello, a Honduran national illegally present in the country, has been incarcerated since August 24, 2017 at the King County Correctional Facility in Seattle, Washington where he is currently charged with the crimes of Homicide INV, Robbery INV and Murder 2 (Cause No: 17C049561). His bail on the Murder 2 charge has been set at $2,000,000.00. A U.S. Marshal Hold (Cause No: MJ1700386) indicates that Elder Carceres-Coello’s bail has been denied.

The victim of illegal alien Elder Carceres-Coello’s alleged homicidal violence was 48 year old Jonathan Finney.

Adding up the numbers, from the ICE Public Affairs’ news release, King County Sheriff’s Department / King County Jail Deputies did not comply with an ICE issued immigration detainer on Elder Carceres-Coello on two prior occasions before he would allegedly participate in the murder Jonathan Finney in August 2017.

Analysis of the preceding information:

Clearly ICE agents are doing the job that was tasked to them in identifying foreign nationals illegally present in United States, like Elder Carceres-Coello, who has been and is incarcerated at one of the King County Jails.

But ICE agents face an uphill battle in the enforcement of U.S. immigration law in King County, Washington.

Since November 10, 2009 when the Council of King County passed Ordinance 16692 county law enforcement has been prohibited from enforcing federal immigration law.

It is fortunate that Elder Carceres-Coello’s bail has been set at $2,000,000.00 and he has a U.S. Marshal Hold place on him because King County Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht has been prohibited by a September 3, 2014 Metropolitan King County Council Ordinance 17886 from honoring federal immigration detainers.

Since January 24, 2018 the U.S. Department of Justice has identified King County, Washington as possibly unlawfully restricting information sharing by its law enforcement officers with federal immigration authorities.

What does all the preceding information mean?

Neither the King County Sheriff’s Department /  King County Jail Deputies will contact ICE if Elder Carceres-Coello is ever able to make bail and return to the streets of the county.

The consequences of the King County Sheriff’s Department / King County Jail Deputies not being able to contact ICE, so the DHS law enforcement agency could take Elder Carceres-Coello into custody and remove him from the country, is very likely the reason 48 year old Jonathan Finney is dead.

Lars, the third full week of June and another criminal alien report for Lars Larson Show KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners.

    ENFORCEMENT AND REMOVAL

    06/17/2019

    Cooperation between ICE, local law enforcement makes for safer communities

    SEATTLE – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) relies upon the cooperation of local law enforcement officials to expeditiously remove dangerous criminals from our communities. ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations’ (ERO) mission is to identify, arrest and remove aliens who present a danger to national security or are a risk to public safety.

    When ICE officers and agents must go out into the community to proactively locate these criminal aliens, it puts personnel and potentially innocent bystanders at risk. ICE commends our local law enforcement colleagues who work to make it less complicated for ICE to apprehend criminal aliens released from local custody.

    “When local law enforcement decides to uphold sanctuary policies and release illegal criminal aliens without notifying ICE, it is a decision to protect and release criminals who are preying on victims in our communities. By allowing criminal aliens, particularly those with egregious criminal records, to be released it places everyone in potential danger. Danger that very well could be prevented through cooperation with immigration officials”, said Bryan Wilcox, acting field operations director, ERO Seattle.

    Without the cooperation of local officials, EROs ability to perform its federally mandated mission is hindered and dangerous criminal aliens, like those described below, could remain in our communities to reoffend. The expeditious removal of these offenders promotes public safety and reduces the overall cost to taxpayers.

Following his release, ICE made multiple, unsuccessful attempts to locate and arrest the man. In October 2018, the subject was arrested again, this time on a felony murder charges.

    • I County jail ignores ICE detainer, Honduran mans suspected of murder after release
    In September 2016, ICE located an illegally present Honduran man with multiple prior criminal convictions being held at a county jail in Washington.

As of June 2019, the subject was in a local county jail and is being held on both murder and robbery charges.

    • I County jail releases illegal alien, man later kills wife and self in apparent murder-suicide
    In December 2016, ICE located and lodged a detainer on a man being held in a county jail in Washington. The man was a Mexican citizen who was illegally present in the U.S. and had prior immigration encounters. Local jail officials did not honor the immigration detainer and released the convicted criminal in August 2017 without notifying ICE. A little over a month later, the subject shot and killed his estranged wife before taking his own life.

    • I County jail refuses to honor immigration detainer, releases child rapist
    In January 2014, ICE encountered an illegally present citizen of Honduras at a county jail in Kent, Washington. The man was being held on a charge of rape of a child. ICE officers interviewed the man and determined that he was a citizen of Honduras and lodged an immigration detainer. That same month, the immigration detainer was not honored, and the subject was released to the community pending the disposition of his case. In August 2015, the subject was convicted of multiple counts of assault. In February 2017, ICE took the man into custody and removed him from the U.S. in March 2017.

    • I County jail refuses to honor ICE detainer, releases illegal alien convicted of rape
    In June 2013, ICE officers encountered a man at a local county jail in Kent, Washington. ICE officers determined the subject was a citizen of Mexico and lodged an immigration detainer. The subject was later convicted of rape and sentenced to more than a year in jail. After completion of his sentence, the Department of Corrections transferred the man to a local county jail on warrants for driving while impaired and violating a no contact order. In February 2014, ICE lodged a subsequent detainer at the county jail. The detainer was not honored, and that same month, he was released to the community. In July 2014, ICE took the individual into custody, and the subject was removed to Mexico in May 2015.

    • County jail refuses to honor ICE detainer of man who sexually assaulted dog
    In February 2019, an illegally present Mexican citizen was encountered by ICE officials at a local Oregon county jail. ICE lodged an immigration detainer on the man the same day for violating immigration laws. In April 2019, the man was convicted of multiple charges involving animal abuse. The county jail did not honor the immigration detainer and released him without notice to immigration officials. ICE apprehended the man at his residence and served him a notice to appear. He is currently being held at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma pending immigration proceedings.

    A detainer is a request to local law enforcement agencies that ICE be notified as early as practicable – ideally at least 48 hours – before a removable alien is released from criminal custody and then briefly maintain custody of the alien for up to 48 hours to allow ICE to assume custody for removal purposes. ICE lodges detainers on individuals who have been arrested on local criminal charges and are suspected of being deportable, so that ICE can take custody of that person when he or she is released from local authorities. When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety and carry out its mission.

    ICE maintains that cooperation by local officials is an indispensable component of promoting public safety. Policy makers who strive to make it more difficult to remove dangerous criminal aliens and aim to stop the cooperation of local officials and business partners, harm the very communities whose welfare they have sworn to protect.
