Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

October 25, 2018

Lars:

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

This week for your KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners we take a look at an illegal alien who is being detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the State of Washington at the at the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center (NWDC).

Saja Tunkara’s story made the regional progressive news publications for his complaining about not receiving adequate medical treatment as an immigration detainee at the NWDC.

According to ICE Public Affairs “Mr. Tunkara’s criminal history includes a conviction for domestic violence in October 2017.”

Wanting to find out more information on why Saja Tunkara is in ICE custody at the NWDC and being removed from the United States of America (USA), I contacted via e-mail on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 ICE Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman to investigate the immigration status of Tunkara.

Here are some of the written questions I sent to ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman:

Was Saja Tunkara illegally present in the United States of America (USA) when he was convicted of domestic violence?

An important follow up question, in what state of the country did Saja Tunkara’s conviction for domestic violence occur?

Do ICE Officers know the reason Saja Tunkara was in the USA?

How long has Saja Tunkara been a detainee at the Tacoma, Washington Northwest Detention Center (NWDC)?

Is there any chance that ICE might have to release Saja Tunkara from the NWDC because he has been held longer than 180 days?

Has Saja Tunkara ever served time in a federal prison for immigration crimes or violations?

How many times if any has ICE removed Saja Tunkara from the USA?

Do ICE officers know the actual country of origin of Saja Tunkara?

Is country of origin of Saja Tunkara a recalcitrant country that won’t take back its own citizens who commit crimes in the USA?

Four days later, on the afternoon of Monday, September 22nd, here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Saja Tunkara:

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) does not retaliate in any way against detainees. Saja Tunkara is in ICE custody because an immigration judge granted him voluntary departure, but he failed to comply. As a result, his voluntary departure order became a final order of removal. In September 2018, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied his motion for a stay of removal. At this point in time, there is no legal impediment to removing him from the U.S.”–Tanya Roman, ICE Public Affairs Officer

“On Background:

Was Saja Tunkara illegally present in the United States when he was convicted of domestic violence? Yes.

In what state of the country did Saja Tunkara’s conviction for domestic violence occur? Washington.

How long has Saja Tunkara been a detainee at the Tacoma, Washington Northwest Detention Center (NWDC)? Saja Tunkara has been at the NWDC since Jan. 9, 2018.

Has Saja Tunkara ever served time in a federal prison for immigration crimes or violations? No

How many times if any has ICE removed Saja Tunkara from the USA? Saja Tunkara has not been previously removed from the U.S.

Do ICE officers know the actual country of origin of Saja Tunkara? Tunkara has stated under oath that he is a citizen of Sierra Leone and has a valid travel document from this country.– ICE Public Affairs.

Apparently there is another side to the story of Saja Tunkara’s claims of not receiving adequate medical treatment as an immigration detainee at the NWDC according to ICE Public Affairs:

“During his time in ICE custody, Mr. Tunkara has received timely and appropriate medical care consistent with the agency’s rigorous performance-based national detention standards. Like all individuals in ICE custody, he underwent a comprehensive medical assessment within 24 hours of arriving at the Northwest Detention Center. At that time, Mr. Tunkara advised ICE Health Service Corps staff of a 2.5 cm non-cancerous tumor on his neck. Prior to entering ICE custody, surgery to correct the condition was deemed elective, and even so, ICE’s Health Service Corps worked with a surgeon to secure a surgery date for Mr. Tunkara. ICE went to significant lengths to ensure Mr. Tunkara received this surgery, including delaying his ordered removal to Gambia. Any additional medical concerns were also addressed, as ICE does for all individuals in its custody.”

“The timing of Mr. Tunkara’s surgery was determined by his surgeon. The surgical team initially said surgery could not be performed until August 2018, and the ICE Health Service Corps ensured the surgery happened sooner than the initial proposed date.”

“The ICE Health Service Corps went to significant lengths to ensure that Mr. Tunkara received this surgery, a surgery that is likely not available in his home country.” – ICE Public Affairs.

One last bit of information, on October 3, 2018 ICE Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman reported “There are approximately 1,370 detainees at the Northwest Detention Center. . .”

Lars, the last full week of October and another criminal alien report for Lars Larson Show KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners.

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens pose high economic cost 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 920 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($99,599.20) per day, ($697,194.40) per week, and ($36,353,708.00) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 920 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

October 18, 2018

Lars:

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

This week we take a look at for your KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners an illegal alien who were sentenced in a Polk County Circuit Court to serve time in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system for the death of one of the state’s residents.

Marcos Antonio-Luz while Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) killed Clifford Eugene Fagaly, age 69, father of two daughters, a resident of Silverton, in Polk County, Oregon on Saturday, January 19, 2013.

My research indicates Marcos Antonio-Luz (SID: 18435964; DOB: 07/1971) is still incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system:

Currently Marcos Antonio-Luz, age 47, is incarcerated at the Oregon State Penitentiary located in Salem, Oregon. A visit to the DOC Oregon Offender Search webpage reveals that Marcos Antonio-Luz is being incarcerated for one count of Manslaughter I and one count of Assault II. Antonio-Luz entered the DOC prison system on August 8, 2013, his earliest release date is September 27, 2030.

Wanting to know the current actual immigration status of Marcos Antonio-Luz, I contacted via e-mail on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman to investigate the immigration status of the DOC inmate.

Here are some of the written questions I sent to ICE Public Affairs Officer Tanya J. Roman:

Was Marcos Antonio-Luz illegally present in the United States of America when he killed the Oregon resident?

Have ICE officer’s placed immigration detainer on Marcos Antonio-Luz since his incarceration in the DOC prison system?

If ICE officer’s placed immigration detainer on Marcos Antonio-Luz will DOC prison officials honor the immigration detainer?

Has Marcos Antonio-Luz ever served time in a federal prison for immigration crimes or violations?

Is ICE currently trying to remove Marcos Antonio-Luz for past crimes he may have committed while illegally present in the country?

How many times if any has ICE removed Marcos Antonio-Luz from the United States of America?

Do ICE officers know the actual country of origin of Marcos Antonio-Luz?

Approximately two days later, on the morning of Thursday, October 18, 2018 here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on the immigration status Marcos Antonio-Luz:

“Here is our response to your inquiry concerning Antonio-Luz.”

“Marcos Antonio-Luz, a citizen of Mexico, is illegally present in the United States. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged an immigration detainer on Antonio-Luz at the Polk County Jail following his arrest, as well as a detainer after his incarceration with the Oregon Department of Corrections (ODOC). He was voluntarily returned to Mexico on three previous occasions.” -Tanya Roman, Public Affairs Officer, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement

“ON BACKGROUND:

If ICE officer’s placed immigration detainer on Marcos Antonio-Luz will DOC prison officials honor the immigration detainer? YES

Has Marcos Antonio-Luz ever served time in a federal prison for immigration crimes or violations? NO

Is ICE currently trying to remove Marcos Antonio-Luz for past crimes he may have committed while illegally present in the country? NO – ICE Public Affairs.

Mexican national Marcos Antonio-Luz is one of the 135 criminal aliens in the Oregon Department of Corrections prison system incarcerated for the crime of homicide.

“Here is our response to your inquiry.

“These individuals have demonstrated that they are a threat to their communities. It is the mission of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to protect public safety by enforcing immigration laws and removing those who threaten that safety from our communities.” – Tanya J. Roman, ICE Public Affairs.

“EXTERNAL BACKGROUND (To be attributed to ICE Official):

Ignacio Merendon-Zerega, Leonel Zurita-Loeza and Edy Porfirio Reynoso-Ramirez are illegally present in the United States.

Immigration detainers have been placed on all three individuals.

Merendon-Zerego and Zurit-Loeza are citizens of Mexico

Ryenoso-Ramirez is a citizen of Guatemala.

All three detainers are being honored by the Oregon Department of Corrections (ODOC).

ICE has no record of these individuals previously serving time in federal prisons for crimes related to immigration violations.
