Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
September 19, 2019
It has been an interesting third full week in the month of September 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 sex abuser who was arrested last week by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) who has a past criminal history in the state of Oregon.
According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Public Affairs September 12, 2019 news release titled “Border Patrol Agents Arrest Convicted Sex Offender, MS-13 Gang Member” U.S. Border Patrol Agents operating in the state of Texas in the Del Rio Sector arrested Mexican national Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias, age 55, for illegal entry into the United States.
Border Patrol Agents doing the processing of Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias, during records checks, discovered Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias had been convicted in Oregon’s Polk County for the crime of felony Sex Abuse in 1992.
The CBP news release also revealed because of Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias’s past felony conviction he faces a federal charge of 8 USC § 1326 — illegal re-entry after deportation. He faces a possible sentence of up to 20 year in a federal prison.
Seeking additional information on the immigration status Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias, I contacted via e-mail on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs with the following questions:
Did ICE placed an immigration detainer (INS Hold) on Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias during the time he was incarcerated at the Polk County Jail or in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system for the crime of felony Sex Abuse?
After Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias completed his jail or prison sentence what was the month and year that ICE picked him up for removal from the country?
Does ICE know the number of times Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias has been removed from the U.S.?
Can ICE provide the month and year Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias was removed from the country?
Has Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?
On Thursday September 19th, ICE Director, Western Region Communications / Spokesperson Paige D. Hughes sent via e-mail the following response to my preceding questions on Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias:
“Jesus Maria Contreras-Covarrubias is a criminal alien and repeat immigration violator from Mexico who has repeatedly ignored the immigration laws of the United States. While Contreras-Covarrubias entered the United States legally in 1987, approximately five years later, he was convicted in Polk County Circuit Court for sex abuse in the first degree. In February 1997, Contreras-Covarrubias was placed into deportation proceedings and issued an Order to Show Cause and Notice of Hearing. An immigration judge ordered him deported in absentia in May of that same year.”
“In January 2004, Contreras-Covarrubias attempted to enter the United States at a port of entry located in Columbus, New Mexico, and he was expeditiously removed to Mexico the same day. In May 2018, ICE officers arrested Contreras-Covarrubias at his residence in Wilachoochee, Georgia. In October 2018, Contreras-Covarrubias was convicted for illegal re-entry after removal or deportation, and ICE once again removed him from the United States in November 2018.”
“U.S. Border Patrol agents near Eagle Pass, Texas, arrested Contreras-Covarrubias again attempting to illegally enter the United States in September 2019. He currently faces federal charges in Eagle Pass, Texas for illegal re-entry into the United States.” – Paige D.Hughes, ICE Director, Western Region Communications / Spokesperson.
Depending on an alien’s criminality, an alien who re-enters the United States after having been previously deported commits a felony punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison, if convicted.” – ICE Public Affairs
Mexican national criminal illegal alien felony sex abuser Jesus Maria Contreras-Covarrubias is an example of the thousands of previously deported aliens that U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents apprehend annually who illegally reenter the U.S.
