Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens place a substantial economic burden on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 818 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($88,556.68) per day, ($619,896.76) per week, and ($32,323,188.20) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 818 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs or victim assistance.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

October 8, 2020

Lars:

It has been an interesting first full week in the month of October 2020 when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

This week we have a report for your radio listeners on a criminal illegal alien fugitive who has been charged with multiple sex crimes against an unidentified minor in the state of Oregon.

On Friday, September 18, 2020 the Marion County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Deputies arrested Victor David Lopez-Bautista, age 35.

Currently Victor David Lopez-Bautista (SID: 19219154; DOB: 03/28/1985) is incarcerated at the Marion County Correctional Facility (MCCF) in Salem, Oregon.

A viewing of the MCCF Full Inmate Roster reveals Victor David Lopez-Bautista has been charged with two counts of First Degree Sodomy, two counts of Second Degree Sex Abuse, Delivery of Methamphetamine to a Minor, Luring a Minor and First Degree Encouraging Child Sex Abuse.

The sex crime charges against Victor David Lopez-Bautista were the product of an investigation by the Woodburn Police Department (WPD) in late November of 2015.

Some history, according to “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” MCCF Full Inmate Roster records from November 13, 2013 this is not the first time Victor David Lopez-Bautista has been charged with crimes in Marion County, Oregon.

On November 10, 2013 Victor David Lopez-Bautista was arrested by Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies.

While at the MCCF, Victor David Lopez-Bautista (SID: 19219154; DOB: 03/28/1985) was charged with Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) and Providing False Information to a Police Officer and Arrest: ICE – Hold Authority: ICE / ICE Hold – No Bail ICE.

The “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” on Monday, October 5, 2020 sent via e-mail U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Tanya Roman a request for information on the historical immigration status of Víctor David Lopez-Bautista.

On Wednesday, October 7, 2020 ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following statement on Victor David Lopez-Bautista:

“Criminal alíen Victor David Lopez-Bautista, 35, is a citizen of Mexico who has repeatedly violated the nation’s immigration laws. On an unknown date and at an unknown location, Lopez-Bautista illegally entered the United States without having been admitted or paroled by an immigration officer. On Sept. 18, Marion County Sheriff’s Office arrested Lopez-Bautista and charged him with two counts of first degrees sodomy, two counts of second degree sex abuse, delivery of methamphetamine to a minor, luring a minor, and first degree encouraging child sex abuse. On Oct. 2, officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) encountered Lopez-Bautista at the Marion County Jail in Marion, Oregon and lodged an immigration detainer. He has not been previously removed from the U.S.

Lopez-Bautista’s criminal history includes a conviction for driving under the influence of intoxicants and for providing false information to a police officer during a vehicle offense.

ICE ERO previously encountered Lopez-Bautista in 2013 while he was in custody of the Marion County Jail. ICE ERO issued an immigration detainer with the jail and on Nov. 26, 2013, he entered ICE custody. On Aug. 26, 2014, an immigration judge granted Lopez-Bautista bond and he was released from ICE custody on Sept. 16, 2014, pending a future immigration hearing. On Feb. 23, 2016, Lopez-Bautista failed to appear for immigration court. On June 1, 2016, Lopez-Bautista failed to report to ICE as required, violating the conditions of his bond, and he became an ICE fugitive.” – Tanya Román, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

“On Background:

ICE’s mission remains consistent: to identify, arrest and remove aliens who present a danger to national security or are a risk to public safety, as well as those who enter the country illegally or otherwise undermine the integrity of our immigration laws and our border control efforts.

About Detainers

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodges detainers on individuals who have been arrested on criminal charges and who ICE has probable cause to believe are removable aliens. The detainer asks the other law enforcement agency to notify ICE in advance of release and to maintain custody of the alien for a brief period of time so that ICE can take custody of that person in a safe and secure setting upon release from that agency’s custody. When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety and carry out its mission.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Mexican national criminal illegal alien fugitive Victor David Lopez-Bautista if found guilty and sentenced to prison in a Marion County Circuit Court room for the sex crimes he has been charged with committing could join more than four hundred criminal alien sex offenders who are now incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report September 2020

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report September 2020

October 5, 2020

By David Olen Cross

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nation’s boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is clearly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (Note: The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from September 26, 2020.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 14,974 inmates, 9.7 percent;
– Colombia 1,568 inmates, 1.0 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,247 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 894 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 7,471 inmates, 4.8 percent;
– United States 129,003 inmates, 83.1 percent;

Total: 155,157 inmates.

To explain the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

Combining September 26th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 26,154 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 16.9 percent of the federal prison population.

With 14,974 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 57.3 percent, they represent a significant majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top six offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 6,125 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 4.2 percent of the federal prison population.

In Memoriam: Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter

In Memoriam: Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter
 
Killed in the line of duty on September 30, 1992

October 1, 2020

By David Olen Cross

Almost 28 years ago Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter, age 34, on September 30, 1992 stopped a car occupied by three intoxicated men, one of them was Francisco Manzo-Hernandez, near Klamath Falls, Oregon. Trooper Clodfelter arrested the driver of the car for DUII.

OSP Trooper Clodfelter, wanting to prevent Francisco Manzo-Hernandez or the other man from driving drunk volunteered to drive the men home. The OSP Trooper frisked the two men before placing them in the back of his patrol car.

Tragically, Trooper Clodfelter missed a 38 caliber handgun Francisco Manzo-Hernandez had hidden on his person; Francisco Manzo-Hernandez shot Trooper Clodfelter twice in the back of the head.

Approximately two years later, Francisco Manzo-Hernandez was sentenced on December 8, 1994 in a Klamath County Circuit Court jury trial to life without parole in the Oregon Department of Corrections prison system for shooting to death OSP Trooper Clodfelter.

Wanting to check out the immigration status of Francisco Manzo-Hernandez I contacted on April 30, 2018 via e-mail U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Carissa Cutrell to investigate if Manzo-Hernandez was illegally present in the United States of America when he murdered OSP Trooper Clodfelter.

Here is ICE Public Affairs Officer Cutrell’s May 3, 2018 e-mail response to my questions on Francisco Manzo-Hernandez:

“On March 31, 1997, the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) lodged a detainer with the Oregon Department of Corrections on Francisco Manzo-Hernandez, a citizen of Mexico illegally present in the U.S. The INS previously removed Manzo-Hernandez to Mexico in December 1991 through the Nogales, Arizona, border crossing.” – Carissa Cutrell, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

“ON BACKGROUND: In 2003, when the Department of Homeland Security was created, the Immigration and Naturalization Service and U.S. Customs Service merged to become U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Detainers lodged by the former INS are still valid under ICE.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Analysis of the statement from ICE Public Affairs Officer Cutrell revealed considerable information about the immigration status of Francisco Manzo-Hernandez:

Francisco Manzo-Hernandez is a Mexican national illegally present in the United States who had been previously removed by the INS to Mexico in December of 1991.

On or after December of 1991 Francisco Manzo-Hernandez illegally reentered the U.S.

Approximately nine months after his removal from the country, illegal alien Francisco Manzo-Hernandez, shot to death OSP Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter on September 30, 1992 after a traffic stop by the OSP Trooper.

Oregonians today and always should be mindful of the both domestic and foreign threats the Oregon State Police face in the course of one of the law enforcements organization’s significant duties of patrolling for public safety purposes the interstate and intrastate roads and highways of the state.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

October 1, 2020

Lars:

It has been an interesting first week in the month of October 2020 when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

This week we have a report for your radio listeners on a criminal illegal alien who has been convicted and sentenced for sex crimes against a woman in the state of Oregon..

On September 23, 2020 the Washington County District Attorney’s Office issued a news release titled “Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza Sentenced to 100 Months in Prison in Burglary, Sexual Abuse Case .”

According to the District Attorney’s Office’s news release, on September 17, 2020 a Washington County jury found Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza, age 27, guilty of first-degree Sex Abuse and first-degree Sexual Penetration and first-degree Burglary.

The next week, on September 22, 2020, Washington County Circuit Court Judge Oscar Garcia sentenced Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza to 100 months in prison.

Some history, a jury in 2015 convicted Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza, but the case against him was reversed by the Oregon Court of Appeals and sent back to the Washington County Circuit Court for a new trial.

Details about the case, Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza climbed up to the second floor balcony of an apartment and sexually assaulted a woman in her bedroom on June 1, 2015. A troubling fact, the woman’s young son was present in the apartment when Zaldana-Mendoza sexually assaulted the child’s mother. A traumatic event for the child, he began to cry during the sexual assault on his mother.

Currently Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza (SID: 21187875; DOB: 04/02/1993) is incarcerated at the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Coffee Creek Intake Center in Wilsonville, Oregon.

The “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” on Monday, September 28, 2020 sent via e-mail U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Tanya Roman a request for information on the historical immigration status of Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza.

On Wednesday, September 30, 2020 ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following statement on Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza:

“Convicted felon, Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza, is a criminal alien from El Salvador and in the United States illegally. On Dec. 11, 2019, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers encountered Zaldana-Mendoza at the Washington County Jail where he was being held on charges of sexual penetration, burglary, and sexual abuse. ICE ERO lodged an immigration detainer with the jail the same day.

On Sept. 22, the Washington County Circuit Court convicted Zaldana-Mendoza of sexual penetration in the first degree, burglary in the first degree, and sexual abuse in the first degree. He was sentenced to 75 months, 18 months and 100 months’ time in prison, to run concurrently. Zaldana-Mendoza is currently being held at the Coffee Creek Correctional Center in Wilsonville, Oregon. The previous immigration detainer lodged on Zaldana-Mendoza with the Oregon Department of Corrections is still in place.

Zaldana-Mendoza has no previous removals from the U.S.” – Tanya Román, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

“On Background (To be attributed to an ICE Official):

About Detainers

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodges detainers on individuals who have been arrested on criminal charges and who ICE has probable cause to believe are removable aliens.  The detainer asks the other law enforcement agency to notify ICE in advance of release and to maintain custody of the alien for a brief period of time so that ICE can take custody of that person in a safe and secure setting upon release from that agency’s custody. When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety and carry out its mission.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Salvadoran sexual predator Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza has joined as many as 446 criminal alien sex offenders who are now incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system.
