Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
October 31, 2019
It has been an interesting last week in the month of October 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 illegal alien who has been convicted for multiple sex crimes against children in the state of Oregon.
On September 6, 2019 a Washington County jury in Hillsboro, Oregon found Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia, age 44, guilty of two counts of first-degree Rape, three counts of second-degree Rape, two counts of Using a Child in Display of Sexually Explicit Conduct, first-degree Sodomy, second-degree Sodomy, four counts of first-degree Unlawful Sexual Penetration, one count of second-degree Unlawful Sexual Penetration, and four counts of first-degree Sex Abuse.
Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia’s 18 sex crime convictions are related to his ongoing sexual abuse of three different minor females.
Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia is now incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution (EOCI) in Pendleton, Oregon.
Seeking information on the immigration status Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia, I contacted via e-mail on October 23, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman with the following questions:
Is Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia illegally present in the United States of America (USA)?
Was Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia illegally present in the USA during his current convictions for the crime of sex abuse against the young girls?
Did ICE place an immigration detainer on Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia when he was incarcerated in the Washington County Jail?
Has ICE placed an immigration detainer on Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia since his incarceration in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system?
Has Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?
How many times if any has Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia been removed from the USA?
If Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia has been previously removed from the USA, what were the dates and locations he was removed from the country?
Does ICE Public Affairs know Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia’s country of origin?
On Monday, October 28, 2019 ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following response to the preceding questions on Alvaro Noe Mendoza-Valencia:
“Convicted child rapist, Alvaro Mendoza-Valencia, is a citizen of Mexico and in the United States illegally. On Sept. 17, 2018, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers encountered Mendoza-Valencia at the Clark County Jail in Washington, where he was being held for being a fugitive from justice. ICE issued an immigration detainer with the jail the same day. ICE did not receive notification of Mendoza-Valencia’s pending release or transfer.
On Sept. 20, 2018, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon arrested Mendoza-Valencia for two counts of rape in the first degree, three counts of rape in the second degree, three counts of display of a child-sexual conduct, one count of sodomy in the second degree, one count of sodomy in the first degree, three counts of unlawful sexual penetration and four counts of sexual abuse in the first degree.
On Sept. 21, 2018, ICE encountered Mendoza-Valencia at the Washington County Jail and issued a detainer with the jail the same day.
On Sept. 25, 2019, the Washington County Circuit Court dismissed one count of display child-sexual conduct and three counts of sexual abuse in the first degree. Mendoza-Valencia was convicted of two counts of display child-sexual conduct, two counts of first degree rape of a victim under 12 years of age, three counts of second degree rape, one count of first degree sexual abuse, three counts of unlawful sexual penetration in the first degree of a victim under the age of 12, one count of first degree sodomy of a victim under the age of 12 and one count of second degree sodomy. Mendoza-Valencia was sentenced to 300 months with Oregon Department of Corrections.
On Oct. 3, 2019, ICE encountered Mendoza-Valencia at the Oregon Department of Corrections and issued an immigration detainer.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.
ICE lodges detainers on aliens who were arrested on local criminal charges when the agency has probable cause to believe an alien is removable from the United States. In response to a detainer, cooperative law enforcement agencies are asked to notify ICE as early as practicable (at least 48 hours, if possible) before an alien is released from the law enforcement agency’s custody.
When notified, ICE will arrest the alien at the jail during the time of their release. This process ensures that the alien is taken into ICE custody and not returned to the same community that they previously victimized. Upon taking custody, ICE is able to initiate or reinstate removal proceedings and if the alien is ordered removed, return the alien to his/her country of origin.
Aliens placed into removal proceedings receive all appropriate legal process before the federal immigration courts, which are administered by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). EOIR is an agency within the U.S. Department of Justice, and is separate from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and ICE. Immigration judges in these courts make decisions based on the merits of each individual case. For more information on EOIR, visit: https://www.justice.gov/eoir/ – ICE Public Affairs.
Answering a same day e-mail follow-up question, according to ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman, “He hasn’t been previously removed by ICE.”
September 1, 2019 Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) information indicated that 695 of the 864 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) in the DOC prison system were Mexican nationals — 80.44 percent of the criminal alien prison population
Significant numbers, 379 of the 695 criminal alien inmates from Mexico incarcerated in DOC prisons were for three types of sex crimes — sex abuse, rape and sodomy — 54.53 percent of the Mexican national inmates in the state’s prisons.
