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 857 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($92,778.82) per day, ($649,451.74) per week, and ($33,864,269.30) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 857 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection: Criminal Alien Report for Fiscal Year 2019

November 12, 2019

By David Olen Cross

United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is an important element of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) who along with other elements of DHS collectively work together in attempting to keep our nations citizens and residents safe from foreign national threats to public safety.

A critical responsibility of U.S. Customs and Border Protection is preventing foreign nationals (criminal aliens) who have been convicted of domestic or foreign crimes and deported from the country from illegally entering or reentering the United States of America.

The U.S. Border Patrol Criminal Alien Statistics webpage is an excellent source for information that indicates the number of criminal aliens CBP caught, interdicted or prevented from entering the country. Moreover, the Criminal Alien Statistics webpage reveals the types of prior criminal convictions that prohibited them by federal law from being legally present in the country.

For Fiscal Year 2019 U.S. Customs and Border Protection has taken into custody and arrested 4,269 criminal aliens (Note: CBP’s Fiscal Year runs from October 1, 2018 – September 30, 2019).

Listed below are the total criminal convictions of the 4,269 criminal aliens by types and numbers of crimes; the most recent U.S. Customs and Border Protection criminal alien numbers available were posted on the CBP webpage on October 29, 2019 (Note: The preceding CBP number of criminal aliens doesn’t match the actual number of illegal alien criminals because some aliens had more than one criminal conviction.).

Types of Criminal Convictions                                Number Criminal Convictions

– Assault, battery, domestic violence                                                     299;

– Illegal drug possession, trafficking                                                        449;

– Illegal entry, re-entry                                                                           2,663;

– Illegal weapons possession, transport, trafficking                                   66;

– Sexual offenses                                                                                       58;

– Other offenses                                                                                        814.

Total Number of Criminal Convictions:                                              5,149

Explaining the preceding numbers, U.S. Customs and Border Protection took into custody and arrested in Fiscal Year 2019 a total of 4,269 criminal aliens having 5,149 previous criminal convictions.

To help politicians, electronic / hardcopy media outlets or interested persons put a real world face on some of the 4,269 criminal aliens that have been arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection for illegally entering or reentering the country during Fiscal Year 2019 the CBP Newsroom webpage is a starting point to search for local or national media releases.

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

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

November 9, 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 October 26, 2019.).

Inmate Citizenship:

– Mexico 20,251 inmates, 11.5 percent;
– Colombia 1,630 inmates, 0.9 percent;
– Dominican Republic 1,436 inmates, 0.8 percent;
– Cuba 1,113 inmates, 0.6 percent;
– Other / unknown countries 8,958 inmates, 5.1 percent;
– United States 143,070 inmates, 81.1 percent;

Total Inmates: 176,458 inmates.

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

Combining October 26th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 33,388 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 18.9 percent of the federal prison population.

With 20,251 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 60.7 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 10,250 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.2 percent of the federal prison population.

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

November 7, 2019

Lars:

It has been an interesting first full week in the month of November 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 criminal illegal alien felony child molester who was arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) who has a past criminal history in the state of Washington.

According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Public Affairs October 21, 2019 news release titled “Border Patrol Apprehends Two Men Charged with Sex Crimes over the Weekend” U.S. Border Patrol Agents operating in the El Centro Sector arrested on Saturday, October 19, 2019 Mexican national Juan Ramon Avila-Leon, age 49, for illegal entry into the United States.

Border Patrol Agents doing the processing of Juan Ramon Avila-Leon (ID: 410635; DOB: unknown), during records checks, discovered Avila-Leon was convicted on October 18, 2018 for Communicating with a Minor for Immoral Purposes in the state of Washington. Avila-Leon was incarcerated for 364 days for the criminal conviction.

The CBP news release indicated Juan Ramon Avila-Leon was previously removed the country by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on September 5, 2019.

Seeking additional information on the immigration status Juan Ramon Avila-Leon, I contacted via e-mail on Monday, November 4, 2019 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanta J. Roman with the following questions:

Did ICE placed an immigration detainer on Juan Ramon Avila-Leon during any time he might have been incarcerated at the Mason County Jail or in the Washington Department of Corrections prison system?

How many times has ICE actually removed Juan Ramon Avila-Leon from the U.S.?

If Juan Ramon Avila-Leon was removed more than once from the U.S., what were the dates and places Avila-Leon was removed from the country?

Has Juan Ramon Avila-Leon ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?

On Wednesday, November 6th, ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following response to my preceding questions on Juan Ramon Avila-Leon:

“Convicted child molester, Juan Ramon Avila-Leon is a citizen of Mexico and in the United States illegally.

On July 18, 2018, Avila-Leon was encountered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at the Pierce County Jail where he was being held on charges of three counts of communication with a minor for immoral purposes and child molestation in the first degree. After an immigration interview, ICE determined he was a citizen of Mexico and lodged a detainer with the jail.

On Aug. 12, 2018, Avila-Leon was convicted of child molestation-2 in the Pierce County Superior Court and sentenced to a total term of 20 months in prison. Avila-Leon was additionally convicted of three counts of communication with a minor for immoral purposes and sentenced to 364 days in jail for each count. Avila-Leon was transferred to the Washington State Department of Corrections (DOC) in Shelton, Washington, to serve his sentence. ICE encountered Avila-Leon at the Washington State DOC and lodged a detainer with the jail.

On July 23, 2019, Avila-Leon was released from Shelton Corrections Center and turned over to ICE custody where he was processed and served a notice to appear.

On Sept. 5, 2019, Avila-Leon was ordered removed by an immigration judge in Tacoma, Washington.

On Sept. 10, 2019, he was removed to Mexico.

According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection press release, on Oct. 19, 2019 Avila-Leon was arrested by Border Patrol agents approximately seven miles east of the Calexico West Downtown Port of Entry, trying to enter the U.S. illegally, without inspection.

“The fact that this individual was apprehended before he could illegally re-enter the country demonstrates the effectiveness of the country’s comprehensive efforts to combat illegal immigration,” said ICE Spokesperson Tanya Roman.

“This is a prime example of why state and local cooperation with federal immigration authorities is so important,” said Nathalie Asher, Seattle Field Office Director, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement and Removal (ERO). I’ve said this over and over, partnerships between local law enforcement and ICE is an indispensable component of promoting public safety. When ICE is notified prior to dangerous individuals being released, we are able to remove them from the communities they’ve victimized, providing justice and closure for their victims.”

ON BACKGROUND:

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.

Congress has established no process, requirement, or expectation directing ICE to seek a judicial warrant from already overburdened federal courts before taking custody of an alien on civil immigration violations. This idea is simply a figment created by those who wish to undermine immigration enforcement and excuse the ill-conceived practices of sanctuary jurisdictions that put politics before public safety.

Sanctuary Policies Put Public Safety at Risk

• When law enforcement agencies don’t honor ICE detainers, these individuals, who often have significant criminal histories, are released onto the street, presenting a potential public safety threat. When ICE Fugitive Operations officers have to go out into the community to proactively locate these criminal aliens, it can create additional risks to our personnel and to public safety.

• Any local jurisdiction thinking that refusing to cooperate with ICE will result in a decrease in local immigration enforcement is mistaken. Local jurisdictions that choose to not cooperate with ICE are likely to see an increase in ICE enforcement activity, as ICE has no choice but to conduct more at-large arrest operations. A consequence of ICE being forced to make more arrests on the streets is the agency is likely to encounter other unlawfully present foreign nationals that wouldn’t have been encountered had we been allowed to take custody of a criminal target within the confines of a local jail.

• Additionally, once these criminals are out on the street, confirming their whereabouts is often time consuming and resource intensive. Many of our arrest targets are seasoned criminals who are savvy about eluding law enforcement.

Despite the severe challenges that local policies have created for ICE, we remain committed to our public safety mission and we will continue to do our sworn duty to seek out dangerous criminal aliens and other immigration violators. ICE seeks straightforward cooperation with all local law enforcement and elected officials. ICE deportation officers carry out targeted enforcement actions every day in locations around the country as part of the agency’s ongoing efforts to protect the nation, uphold public safety, and protect the integrity of our immigration laws and border controls. – ICE Public Affairs.

The preceding story of CBP Agents arresting previously deported sex offender Juan Ramon Avila-Leon for illegal reentry into the U.S., the back story of ICE Officers removing Avila-Leon from the U.S. with the cooperation of the state of Washington DOC officials turning him over to the immigration enforcement agency, is an excellent example of how federal and state law enforcement can work together to protect the public safety of the citizens and residents of this country.

Mexican national criminal illegal alien felony child molester Juan Ramon Avila-Leon 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.
