Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
August 22, 2019
It has been an interesting third full week in the month of August 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 a criminal illegal alien who has been arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) with a past conviction for a sex crime in the state of Washington.
According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Public Affairs August 15, 2019 news release titled “Border Patrol Arrests Convicted Child Rapist-Previously Deported Man Attempted to Re-enter the U.S.” on Wednesday, August 14, 2019 U.S. Border Patrol Agents from the Brian A. Terry Station operating in the Tucson Sector arrested Mexican national Carlos Blancas-Rojas, age 37, for being illegally present in the United States.
Border Patrol Agents doing the processing of Carlos Blancas-Rojas, through records checks, revealed three things about him:
First, Carlos Blancas-Rojas had been convicted of a felony by the state of Washington for the Rape of a Child in 2008.
Second, Carlos Blancas-Rojas still has an active bench warrant in Washington.
Third, Carlos Blancas-Rojas has been removed from the United States twice, his second deportation following the felony conviction.
Currently, Carlos Blancas-Rojas (ID: 327303; DOB: unknown) is reported to be in federal custody awaiting prosecution for the illegal re-entry of a previously deported aggravated felon.
Seeking additional information on the immigration status Carlos Blancas-Rojas, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, August 19, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman with the following questions:
Did ICE placed an immigration detainer on Carlos Blancas-Rojas during the time he was incarcerated in the Washington Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system for the Rape of A Child?
What was the month, date and year that ICE picked up Carlos Blancas-Rojas from the DOC prison system?
Does ICE know why Carlos Blancas-Rojas has an active bench warrant on him in the state of Washington?
Can ICE confirm the number of times Carlos Blancas-Rojas been removed from the U.S.?
What were the months, dates, years ICE removed Carlos Blancas-Rojas from the country?
Has Carlos Blancas-Rojas ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?
On Wednesday August 21st, ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following response to my preceding questions on Carlos Blancas-Rojas:
“Convicted sex offender Carlos Blancas-Rojas is a Mexican citizen who is in the United States illegally. On Aug. 14, 2019, Blancas-Rojas was encountered by immigration officials near Naco, Arizona and is currently pending federal charges.
On July 31, 2006, Blancas-Rojas was encountered by immigration officials at the Skagit County Jail. On Aug. 1, 2006, Blancas-Rojas entered into ICE custody and following immigration proceedings was removed to Mexico on Aug. 18, 2006.
On Dec. 14, 2007, Blancas-Rojas was encountered again at the Skagit County Jail after he was arrested for Failure to Appear on a charge of Rape of a Child. On Jan. 31, 2008, Blancas-Rojas was convicted of Rape of a Child 3rd Degree in the Washington State Superior Court. An immigration detainer was issued with the jail and he was transferred to ICE custody on April 9, 2008. Blancas-Rojas was last removed from the U.S. to Mexico on April 12, 2008.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.
“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.” – ICE Public Affairs.
Mexican national criminal illegal alien sex offender Carlos Blancas-Rojas is an example of the thousands of previously deported criminal aliens that U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent’s apprehend annually who try to illegally reenter the U.S.
