Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

April 8, 2021

Lars:

It has been an interesting first full week in the month of April 2021 when it comes to criminal aliens here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

This week we examine a U.S. Immigration and Customs (ICE) immigration enforcement story on a criminal alien (convicted felon) whose criminal activity occurred in the state of Oregon.

Some back ground information, the “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” is always looking for ICE immigration enforcement stories; ICE Northwest Regional Communication Director (RCD) Tanya Roman sent a news release / statement to the “Criminal Alien Report” on a criminal alien removed from the United States to Mexico on Tuesday, April 6; 2021 that was also published on the ICE News Releases website.

Here is that news release / statement:

ICE removes convicted rapist from United States to Mexico

PORTLAND, Ore. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers removed a convicted rapist and public safety threat, with multiple sexual assault convictions in Oregon, from the United States to Mexico, Tuesday.

Juan Cortez-Magdaleno, 53, is a Mexican citizen who was granted legal status in the United States in 1991. On Nov. 10, 2004, Cortez-Magdaleno, came to the attention of ERO officers following convictions for two counts of rape in the first degree, sodomy in the first degree and sexual abuse in the first degree, for which he was convicted of 405 months in prison. ERO officers lodged an immigration detainer with the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) the same day.

ICE lodges immigration detainers on individuals, like Cortez-Magdaleno, who have been arrested on local criminal charges and who are suspected of being removable, so that ICE can take custody of that person when he or she is released from local custody.

“The immigration detainer allows ICE to take custody of individuals who are deemed public safety threats, like Cortez-Magdaleno, versus releasing them to the streets where they could potentially prey on additional children, said ICE’s acting Seattle Field Office Director Michael Melendez.”

On March 1, 2021, the Oregon DOC transferred Cortez-Magdaleno to ICE custody and on March 31, an immigration judge ordered Cortez-Magdaleno removed to Mexico.

On Tuesday, Cortez-Magdaleno was removed from the United States via an ICE Air Operations charter flight and transferred to the custody of Mexican authorities.

ICE is now implementing the interim civil immigration enforcement priorities directed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to focus its limited resources on threats to national security, border security, and public safety. ICE continues to carry out its duty to enforce the laws of the United States in accordance with the Department’s national security and public safety mission.

#ICE#”

In the preceding news release / statement from ICE Northwest Regional Communication Director Roman on the criminal alien sex offender revealed two elements of good news for the residents of the state of Oregon, furthermore, all the citizens and residents of the United States.

First, the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) is turning over custody of criminal aliens like Mexican national sexual predator Juan Cortez-Magdaleno to ICE after they have completed sentences in the state’s prison system.

Second, the Mexican government is accepting the return of the country’s criminal citizens by allowing ICE Air Operations to transport them home.

One last bit of historical information, Juan Cortez-Magdaleno (Case Number: 04C47461; SID: 11555655; DOB:02/15/1968) was convicted on October 26, 2004 of the two counts of Rape in the First Degree, one count Sodomy in the First Degree and one count Sex Abuse in the First Degree in Marion County Circuit Court in Salem, Oregon.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report March 2021

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report March 2021

April 2, 2021

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 March 27, 2021.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 14,096 inmates, 9.3 percent;
– Colombia 1,571 inmates, 1.0 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,313 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Cuba 849 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 7,216 inmates, 4.7 percent;
– United States 126,681 inmates, 83.5 percent;

Total: 151,726 inmates.

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

Combining March 27th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 25,045 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 16.5 percent of the federal prison population.

With 14,096 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 56.3 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 5,539 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 3.9 percent of the federal prison population.
