Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

September 2, 2021

Lars:

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

This week we have a “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” for your radio listeners and webpage readers a report on a illegal alien money launderer who operated in the state of Oregon.

On Wednesday, July 28, 2021 U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon (USAODO) issued a news release titled “Money Launderer for Mexican Drug Trafficking Organization Sentenced to Federal Prison.”

According to the USAODO Public Affairs’ news release Mexican national Jesus Gonzalez-Vazquez, age 37, was the subject sentenced to132 months in federal prison for the crime of Money Laundering.

A significant fact, the USAODO Public Affairs’ news release credits Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) as a lead investigator in the take down of Jesus Gonzalez-Vazquez’s money laundering organization that operated in Portland, Oregon.

Here is excerpt from the USAODO Public Affairs’ July 28th news release:

“Drug cartels thrive on their lust for money and power,” said Special Agent in Charge Robert Hammer, who oversees HSI operations in the Pacific Northwest. “Operating under the guise of a small convenience store, Vazquez funneled millions of drug profits back to Mexico. This sentence is a successful step towards removing the ability of the cartels to collect their profits from the poison they inject into our communities.”

An import bit of information left out of the USAODO Public Affairs’ news release was the immigration status of Jesus Gonzalez-Vazquez.

So on Tuesday, August 24, 2021 the “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” contacted via e-mail U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) David Yost to find out the historical immigration status of Jesus Gonzalez-Vazquez.

On Wednesday, September 1, 2021 ICE Public Affairs Officer Yost responded via e-mail with the following statement on Jesus Gonzalez-Vazquez:

“Jesus Gonzalez-Vazquez, 38, is a Mexican national who is unlawfully present in the United States. Gonzalez-Vazquez was initially encountered by U. S. Border Patrol twice in two days in May 2001, and was granted voluntary return on both occasions. Gonzalez-Vazquez was arrested in Oregon for conspiracy to commit money laundering in October 2019, and he was turned over to U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) custody at the time of his arrest. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers placed an immigration detainer with USMS Nov. 18, 2019. The U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon convicted Gonzalez-Vazquez July 28 of money laundering, sentencing him to 132 months in a federal prison where he is currently held.” – David Yost, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

On September 2, 2021 Jesus Gonzalez-Vazquez (Register Number: 81602-065) was in the custody of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) Sheridan FCI located in Sheridan, Oregon.

Jesus Gonzalez-Vazquez’s scheduled release date from the BOP prison system is February 14, 2029.

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

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

September 1, 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 August 28, 2021.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 14,222 inmates, 9.1 percent;
– Colombia 1,608 inmates, 1.0 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,316 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 805 inmates, 0.5 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 7,369 inmates, 4.7 percent;
– United States 130,117 inmates, 83.7 percent;

Total: 155,437 inmates.

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

Combining August 28th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 25,320 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 16.3 percent of the federal prison population.

With 14,222 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 56.2 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 five offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 6,516 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 4.5 percent of the federal prison population.
