Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
February 6, 2020
It has been an interesting first full week in the month of February 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 previously deported criminal illegal alien who was arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection who at one time faced a sex crime charge in the state of Idaho.
According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Public Affairs Thursday, January 30, 2020 news release titled “Border Patrol Agents Arrest Alleged Child Sex Offender,” location New Mexcio, Santa Teresa Border Patrol Agents on January 30th apprehend previously deported Mexican national Ivan Isaias Rivera-Ibarra, age 38, for illegal entry into the United States.
Border Patrol Agents doing the processing of Ivan Isaias Rivera-Ibarra (Case Number: CR141910792; DOB: Mar 08, 1982), during records checks, discovered Rivera-Ibarra had an outstanding sex crime warrant for Fondling a Child in Napa Idaho, a community located in Canyon County, Idaho.
According to the CBP news release, Ivan Isaias Rivera-Ibarra is currently being held for extradition.
Seeking additional information on the immigration status Ivan Isaias Rivera-Ibarra, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, February 3, 2020 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Western Region Communications Director Paige D. Hughes with the following questions:
How many times has ICE actually removed Ivan Isaias Rivera-Ibarra from the United States?
When Ivan Isaias Rivera-Ibarra was previously removed by ICE from the U.S., what were the dates and places Rivera-Ibarra was removed from the country?
Has Ivan Isaias Rivera-Ibarra ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?
On Thursday, February 6th, ICE Public Affairs Officer Yasmeen Pitts O’Keefe sent via e-mail the following response to my preceding questions on Ivan Isaias Rivera-Ibarra:
“Ivan Rivera-Ibarra, a previously removed illegal criminal alien from Mexico, was arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) Jan. 30, 2020, near Santa Teresa, New Mexico.
Rivera-Ibarra was previously encountered by USBP Oct. 31, 2019, near Santa Teresa, New Mexico. At that time, USBP issued him an order of expedited removal, and his case was presented for federal criminal prosecution of illegal entry. He was convicted of illegal entry Nov. 7, 2019.
While serving time in federal prison for the illegal entry conviction, he was served an outstanding criminal warrant for sexual abuse and sexual battery of minors. He was extradited and transferred to the custody of Canyon County Sheriff’s Office to face those charges Nov. 28, 2019, and ICE lodged a detainer with the sheriff’s office. Those charges were later dismissed, and he entered ICE custody pursuant to a detainer. ICE removed him to Mexico Dec. 17, 2019.” – Yasmeen Pitts O’Keefe, ICE Public Affairs Officer.
Adding up the number of days since ICE most recently removed Ivan Isaias Rivera-Ibarra to Mexico and when he was apprehend by CBP for allegedly illegally reentering the United States from Mexico — 44 days.
Mexican national criminal illegal alien Ivan Isaias Rivera-Ibarra is another example of the thousands of previously deported aliens that U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents apprehend annually who illegally reenter the U.S.
