Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

September 12, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting second full week in the month of September 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 who has been sentenced in a federal court to prison for drug and firearm crimes in the state of Oregon.

On Monday, August 1, 2019 the U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Oregon (USADO), issued a news release titled “Eagle Point Drug Trafficker Sentenced to 120 Months in Federal Prison for Distributing Methamphetamine.”

The USADO news release revealed that drug trafficker Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez (ID: 59087; DOB: 06/10/1984), age 35, a Eagle Point, Oregon resident was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine and illegally possessing a firearm..

According to the USADO August 1st news release, Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez admitted to being illegally in the United States of America.

Some background information, Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez on April 2, 2019 pleaded guilty to the federal crimes of conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine and possessing a firearm as an illegal alien.

Prior to Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez (SID: 15600157; Jail ID: 59087) being moved to serve his 120 month sentence in a federal prison he was held on a U.S. Marshal Hold at the Polk County Jail in Dallas, Oregon.

Seeking additional information on the immigration status Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez, I contacted via e-mail on Wednesday, August 7, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman with the following questions:

Can the ICE Public Affairs Officer confirm if Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez is actually illegally present in the United States of America (USA)?

Did ICE place an immigration detainer on Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez during the time he has been incarcerated at the Polk County Jail?

Has Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

How many times if any has Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez been removed from the USA?

If Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez has been previously removed from the USA, what were the dates, times and locations he was removed from the country?

Does ICE Public Affairs know Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez’s country of origin?

The next day, August 8th, ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following response to my preceding questions on Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez:

“On April 20, 2018, ICE lodged a detainer with the Multnomah County (Oregon) Jail and the U.S. Marshals on Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez, a Mexican citizen illegally present in the U.S., after he was arrested on felony charges.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

On background:

“Detainers serve as a legally authorized request, upon which a law enforcement agency may rely, to continue to maintain custody of an alien for up to 48 hours so that ICE may assume custody for removal purposes. Pursuant to ICE policy, all ICE detainers are submitted with an accompanying administrative arrest warrant or warrant of removal depending upon the circumstances of the individual case.”

“ICE lodges detainers on aliens who have been arrested on local criminal charges when the agency has probable cause to believe an alien is removable from the United States.” – ICE Public Affairs.

When checking out on September 12, 2019 the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) website “Find an inmate,” I found out Rodrigo Caro-Gonzalez (Register Number: 80286-065) is currently not in BOP custody, his scheduled release date from prison is 11/11/2025.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

September 5, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting first week in the month of September 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 who has been charged with the crime of murder in the state of Washington.

On August 11, 2019 Benton County Sheriff’s Office Gang Team along with the help of the Washington State Patrol, Union Gap Police Department and Yakima Police Department took Silvestre Rojas Fuentes into custody in Union Gap, Washington for allegedly shooting to death his wife Graciela G. Gomez, age 51, on August 10, 2019.

Silvestre Rojas Fuentes (ID: 204682; DOB: Dec. 31, 1963), age 55, is currently incarcerated at the Benton County Jail in Kennewick, Washington where a viewing of the jail’s Daily Inmate Roster on September 3, 2019 revealed he had been charged with Murder-1, his bail set at $500,000.00.

Seeking additional information on the immigration status Silvestre Rojas Fuentes, I contacted via e-mail on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman with the following questions:

Does ICE Public Affairs Officer know if Silvestre Rojas Fuentes is illegally present in the United States?

Has ICE placed an immigration detainer on Silvestre Rojas Fuentes since he has been incarcerated at the Benton County Jail?

Has Silvestre Rojas Fuentes ever been held at the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center?

How many times if any has ICE removed Silvestre Rojas Fuentes from the U.S.?

If Silvestre Rojas Fuentes has been previously removed from the U.S., what were the dates and locations ICE took Rojas Fuentes into custody and removed him from the country?

Does ICE Public Affairs know Silvestre Rojas Fuentes’s country of origin?

On the same day, September 3rd, ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following response to my preceding questions on Silvestre Rojas Fuentes:

“On Aug. 11, 2019, Silvestre Fuentes-Rosas, a Mexican citizen, and repeat immigration violator, was arrested in the city of Union Gap by local authorities on the charge of murder and booked into the Benton County (Washington) Jail. U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged a detainer with the jail the same day. Rosas has been previously removed from the United States in 1998 and 2010.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

“Detainers serve as a legally-authorized request, upon which a law enforcement agency may rely, to continue to maintain custody of an alien for up to 48 hours so that ICE may assume custody for removal purposes. Pursuant to ICE policy, all ICE detainers are submitted with an accompanying administrative arrest warrant or warrant of removal depending upon the circumstances of the individual case.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Analyzing ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman’s statement on Silvestre Fuentes-Rosas, who Benton County Sheriff’s Office is currently identifying a Silvestre Rojas Fuentes, indicates the alleged wife killer may be using an alias.

Mexican national illegal alien Silvestre Rojas Fuentes aka Silvestre Fuentes-Rosas is a far too common example of previously deported aliens reentering the U.S. illegally annually who go on to commit serious crimes.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report August 2019

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report August 2019

August 31, 2019

By David Olen Cross

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nations 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 24, 2019.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 20,631 inmates, 11.7 percent;
– Colombia 1,613 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,427 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,117 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 8,851 inmates, 5.0 percent;
– United States 143,254 inmates, 81.0percent;

Total Inmates: 176,893 inmates.

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

Combining August 24th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 33,639 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 19.0 percent of the federal prison population.

With 20,631 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 61.3 percent, they were the vast 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 10,394 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.3 percent of the federal prison population.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

August 29, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting last week in the month of August 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 illegal alien alleged drug smuggler who has been arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) who also been charged with local crimes in the state of Oregon.

According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Public Affairs August 26, 2019 news release titled “Illegal Alien with Active Warrant Arrested Smuggling Over 820 Pounds of Marijuana” on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 U.S. Border Patrol Agents in the Tucson Sector arrested on federal immigration and drug smuggling charges 11aliens, one Honduran, one Guatemalan and nine Mexican nationals, dressed in camouflage in a remote canyon southeast of Arivaca, Arizona.

A records check by CBP Agents of Guatemalan national Mario Felipe-Perez (ID: 707709; DOB: unknown), age 25, revealed he has an active warrant in Marion County, Oregon for burglary, domestic violence assault, and contempt of court.

The CBP news release also revealed the Marion County issuer of the warrant on Mario Felipe-Perez has been notified that he is in federal custody where he awaits extradition to the county.

Seeking additional information on the immigration status Mario Felipe-Perez, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, August 26, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman with the following questions:

Can the ICE Public Affairs Officer confirm if Mario Felipe-Perez is illegally present in the United States?

Did ICE place an immigration detainer on Mario Felipe-Perez during the time he was incarcerated in March 2018 on local charges at the Marion County Correctional Facility (MCCF) in Salem, Oregon?

If ICE placed an immigration detainer on Mario Felipe-Perez while he was incarcerated in March 2008 at the MCCF, did jail deputies release him without notifying immigration agents?

If Mario Felipe-Perez was released by MCCF deputies, did ICE agents take him into custody?

Has Mario Felipe-Perez ever been held at the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center?

How many times if any has ICE removed Mario Felipe-Perez from the U.S.?

If Mario Felipe-Perez has been previously removed from the U.S., what were the dates and locations he was removed from the country?

Does ICE Public Affairs know if Mario Felipe-Perez’s country of origin is Guatemala?

On Thursday August 29th, ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following response to my preceding questions on Mario Felipe-Perez:

“Mario Felipe-Perez is a Guatemalan citizen, and a repeat immigration violator. On Jan. 23, 2019, Felipe-Perez was arrested [in] Eugene by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) during an interview with deportation officers. Felipe-Perez was transferred to the Northwest ICE Processing Center and placed into removal proceedings the same day. On April 23, 2019, an immigration judge ordered him removed from the U.S. and he was repatriated via ICE Air on April 30. Less than 4 months later, on Aug. 21, he was apprehended again in the U.S. by Border Patrol.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer.

“On background:

ICE was not aware of his incarceration in March 2018 and therefore did not issue a detainer with the jail.

Detainers serve as a legally-authorized request, upon which a law enforcement agency may rely, to continue to maintain custody of an alien for up to 48 hours so that ICE may assume custody for removal purposes. Pursuant to ICE policy, all ICE detainers are submitted with an accompanying administrative arrest warrant or warrant of removal depending upon the circumstances of the individual case.” – ICE Public Affairs.

Guatemalan national illegal alien Mario Felipe-Perez 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.
