Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
October 24, 2019
It has been an interesting third full week in the month of October 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 arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) who is wanted for a sex crime 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 Arrests Man Wanted for Rape, Murder” U.S. Border Patrol Agents operating in the Tucson Sector arrested Mexican national Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos for illegal entry into the United States.
Border Patrol Agents doing the processing of Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos (SID: 22731057; DOB: 11/10/1977), during records checks, discovered Espinosa-Burgos is wanted in Oregon City, Oregon for the crime of Rape.
The CBP news release also revealed Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos faces extradition to Oregon on the Rape charge before he is returned to Mexico to face a Murder charge.
Seeking additional information on the immigration status Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos, I contacted via e-mail on Tuesday, October 1, 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 Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos during any time he might have been incarcerated at the Clackamas County Jail on the Rape charge?
Has ICE ever previously removed Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos from the U.S.?
If ICE has removed Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos from the country, what were the dates and places Espinosa-Burgos was removed from the country?
Has Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?
While waiting for ICE Public Affairs to respond to my questions, I contacted the Clackamas County District Attorney’s Office on October 7, 2019 to find out about the extradition of Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos back to Oregon.
Here is how is how Clackamas County District Attorney (CCDA) John Foote on October 7, 2019 responded to my inquiry on the extradition of Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos:
“This office is requesting extradition. However, the final decision is made by the Governor’s Office.” – John Foote, Clackamas County District Attorney.
Here is how is how Clackamas County Deputy District Attorney (CCDDA) Kara A. Brooks on October 12, 2019 responded to my inquiry on the extradition of Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos:
“After our office began applying for a Governor’s warrant, Mr. Espinosa Burgos ultimately decided to waive extradition. We have until the 21st of the month to pick him and start the transport process back to Clackamas County, so he should be here within the next few weeks.” – Kara A. Brooks, Clackamas County Deputy District Attorney.
On Thursday, October 10, 2019 ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following Statement on Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos:
“Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos is a Mexican citizen and a repeat immigration violator. On Sept. 10, 2019, he was arrested by the Border Patrol while attempting to enter the U.S. without inspection, near Nogales, Arizona. He is currently wanted in Oregon for rape.
He was previously apprehended by the Border Patrol and allowed to voluntarily return to Mexico on three occasions between Feb. 1 and Feb. 4, 2004.
On Nov. 23, 2008, Espinosa-Burgos was encountered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) during a targeted enforcement operation. Espinosa-Burgos was released on his own recognizance and subsequently issued a notice to appear (NTA) via certified mail to his last known address.
On March 30, 2015, ICE received information from the U.S. Marshals Service that Espinosa-Burgos was wanted for felony charges in Mexico. On Oct. 7, 2015, ICE arrested Espinosa-Burgos without incident at his residence in Oregon. Espinosa-Burgos was housed at the Northwest ICE Processing Center (NWIPC) pending removal proceedings. On Jan. 27, 2016, ICE received notice that the felony charges in Mexico were dismissed, and an immigration judge granted him bond. Espinosa-Burgos posted bond the same day, and ICE released him from custody.
On May 21, 2019, Espinosa-Burgos failed to appear on pending charges for rape. A warrant was issued for Espinosa-Burgos by the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.
On Sept. 10, 2019, Espinosa-Burgos was encountered by Border Patrol in Nogales, Arizona after again unlawfully entering the U.S.
Espinosa-Burgos is subject to an outstanding extraditable warrant out of Oregon for rape.
According to a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) press release, Espinosa-Burgos is also wanted for murder and will be handed over to Mexican law enforcement authorities following his extradition to Oregon for adjudication of his alleged crimes in the U.S.
Please contact CBP for additional information on this case.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.
Mexican national illegal alien Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos is an example of the thousands of previously deported aliens that U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents apprehend annually who try to illegally reenter the U.S.
