Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report February 2017

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) February 1, 2017 Inmate Population Profile indicated there were 14,594 inmates incarcerated in the DOC’s 14 prisons.

Data obtained from the DOC indicated that on February 1st there were 967 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in the state’s prison system; more than one in every sixteen prisoners incarcerated by the state was a criminal alien, 6.63 percent of the total prison population.

Some background information, all 967 criminal aliens currently incarcerated in the DOC prison system were identified by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a federal law enforcement agency that is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. If an inmate is identified by ICE as being a criminal alien, at the federal law enforcement agency’s request, DOC officials will place an “ICE detainer” on the inmate. After the inmate completes his/her state sanction, prison officials will transfer custody of the inmate to ICE.

Using DOC Inmate Population Profiles and ICE detainer numbers, the following table reveals the total number inmates, the number of domestic and criminal alien inmates along with the percentage of them with ICE detainers incarcerated on February 1st in the state’s prisons.

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 ($94.55) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 967 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($91,429.85) per day, ($640,008.95) per week, and ($33,371,895.25) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2016 U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $1,788,075.00, if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2017, the cost to incarcerate 967 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($31,583,820.25).

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 967 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

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 ($94.55) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 953 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($90,106.15) per day, ($630,743.05) per week, and ($32,888,744.75) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2016 U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $1,788,075.00, if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2017, the cost to incarcerate 953 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($31,100,669.75).

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 953 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

Law enforcement or law UNenforcement?

The Multnomah County Sheriff's office is in an uproar because a Deputy Sheriff notified ICE about an illegal alien charged with domestic abuse.  So twisted is that office, they are "investigating" the actions of the Deputy, while defending the illegal alien.  Read more here.

If nothing else, I think the recent election has and should send a loud and clear message that tax paying citizens are sick and tired of our tax dollars being spent to defend and protect from deportation all illegal aliens.

The argument that cooperating with ICE will somehow cause the community not to trust law enforcement is bogus at best - and an outright lie to the citizens they are sworn to protect.


 

A Multnomah County Sheriff’s Deputy Allegedly Aided Federal Agents in Courthouse Immigration Sting

On Jan. 25, Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese pledged his office wouldn't help President Donald Trump deport undocumented immigrants.

"I believe we have a responsibility to nurture a relationship of trust with everyone in our community," Reese said....

As early as Nov. 15, local officials pledged that Portland will remain a "sanctuary city" for undocumented immigrants...

...Reese won't have to contend only with Trump, but with people in his own employ.

In late December, one of Reese's deputies allegedly helped deliver an undocumented immigrant to agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

ICE agents apparently acted using information supplied by Deputy Larry Wenzel...

The Sheriff's Office has opened an internal affairs investigation into Wenzel's actions...

"What Oregon and Portland need to do now is stand up against the Trump administration," says Kasia Rutledge, an attorney with Metropolitan Public Defender Services...

The arrest of Rutledge's client came well before Trump took office Jan. 20...

As WW first reported Jan. 28, plainclothes federal agents wearing T-shirts and jeans have arrested several immigrants in the past two weeks at the Multnomah County Courthouse, according to the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon. Defense attorneys and other witnesses tell WW that ICE agents have also demanded names from people who appear to be minorities at the courthouse, and have taken custody of some people on their wanted lists.

It's hard to be sure whether those arrests mark an increase from ICE's typical activity. An ICE spokeswoman confirmed five arrests at or near a courthouse this month...

Local lawyers say the raids suggest a federal immigration agency emboldened by Trump's election and executive orders—and acting in ways that local elected officials may find more effective than they imagined.

"If underneath them their subordinates are sending people to the [ICE] Tacoma Detention Center, there's a problem," defense attorney Chris O'Connor tells WW. "There's no actual plan for the day-to-day interactions."

Multnomah County officials, including Reese, County Chairwoman Deborah Kafoury and Presiding Multnomah County Circuit Judge Nan Waller, were alarmed enough to issue a joint statement Jan. 28.

"Anything that increases the fear of people accessing our courts is of grave concern," the statement said. "Now, they may be too afraid to show up."

The ICE arrests in Multnomah County come in the midst of nationwide uproar after Trump signed executive orders hostile to people born in other countries. Trump's orders included a Jan. 25 proposal to deny grant funding to cities that don't detain people for deportation, and a Jan. 27 travel ban blocking people from seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the United States.

In the wake of those orders, ICE and its sister agency, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, emerged as the enforcers of Trump's crackdown...

In Portland, ICE agents made 58 arrests in the month of January, five of them "at or near courthouses in Multnomah County," according to ICE Western regional spokeswoman Virginia Kice...

ICE officials said at least three of the people detained by ICE have significant criminal convictions, but they declined to provide names to verify the information.

Rutledge tells WW that Deputy Wenzel told her client, who faces domestic abuse charges and whose name she declined to provide, to come to the county's "close street supervision" office at the Multnomah County Justice Center on Southwest 3rd Avenue on Dec. 21 for a weekly pretrial check-in.

... the day before his appointment, she says, Wenzel called to tell him to come in specifically at 10 am—which is when the client and his mother found ICE agents waiting.

"When he and his mother came in, ICE was with the deputy, standing there behind the glass window," Rutledge tells WW.

She emailed Wenzel right away. "How did ICE know he was there?" Rutledge asked in an email.

"They asked when he would be here and I told them," Wenzel replied in an email obtained by WW.

After WW asked about Wenzel's actions, Reese issued a new memo to staff saying ICE "will be provided no greater information than is available to the public."...

"I don't think people have thought through the implications," Borg tells WW. "Because it's not just defendants. It's witnesses. It's family members.

"People are going to have to dust off their history books and see what the original definition of 'outlaw' meant. It was people who live outside the protection of the law."

WW staff writers Rachel Monahan and Nigel Jaquiss contributed reporting to this story.

 

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report November 2016

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) November 1, 2016 Inmate Population Profile indicated there were 14,731 inmates incarcerated in the DOC’s 14 prisons.

Data obtained from the DOC indicated that on November 1st there were 964 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in the state’s prison system; more than one in every sixteen prisoners incarcerated by the state was a criminal alien, 6.54 percent of the total prison population.

Some background information, all 964 criminal aliens currently incarcerated in the DOC prison system were identified by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a federal law enforcement agency that is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. If an inmate is identified by ICE as being a criminal alien, at the federal law enforcement agency’s request, DOC officials will place an “ICE detainer” on the inmate. After the inmate completes his/her state sanction, prison officials will transfer custody of the inmate to ICE.

Using DOC Inmate Population Profiles and ICE detainer numbers, the following table reveals the total number inmates, the number of domestic and criminal alien inmates along with the percentage of them with ICE detainers incarcerated on November 1st in the state’s prisons.

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report for the Americas September 2016

Data obtained from the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) indicated that on September 1, 2016 there were 955 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in the state's prison system.

Breaking the DOC criminal alien prison population down by a specific geographic region of the world, 844 of the prisoners self-declared countries of origin were located in the Americas: North, Central and South America and the West Indies (Excluding the United States of America and its territories):

- North America had 771 criminal aliens, 91.35 percent of the DOC prisoners from the Americas;

- Central America had 52 criminal aliens, 6.16 percent of the DOC prisoners from the Americas;

- South America had six criminal aliens, 0.71 percent of the DOC prisoners from the Americas;

- The West Indies had 16 criminal aliens, 1.89 percent of the DOC prisoners from the Americas.

The 844 prisoners in the DOC prison system from the Americas were 88.38 percent of the total criminal alien prison population.

Some background information, all criminal aliens incarcerated in the DOC prison system were identified by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a federal law enforcement agency that is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Once identified by ICE these criminal aliens had immigration detainers placed on them by immigration officials monitoring the state's prisons. After these criminal alien inmates have completed their state sanctions, prison officials will transfer custody of these inmates to ICE.

Using DOC ICE detainer numbers, the following table reveals the self-declared countries of origin of the 844 criminal alien prisoners from the Americas by number and percentage incarcerated on September 1st in the state's prisons.

Twenty- eight Oregon counties had at least one criminal alien from the Americas incarcerated in DOC prisons. Five of the state's counties, Marion, Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Lane, had 648 prisoners (76.78 percent) of the criminal aliens from the Americas incarcerated in the state's prisons.

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and percentages by countries of origin, by crime types or by the state's counties, criminal aliens from the Americas pose high economic cost on Oregon tax payers.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($94.55) per day.

The DOC's incarceration cost for its 844 criminal alien prison population from the Americas is approximately ($79,800.20) per day, ($558,601.40) per week, and ($29,127,073.00) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2015 U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $1,602,510.00, if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2016, the cost to incarcerate 844 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($27,524,563.00).

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 844 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

Trump: Not ‘One More American Life’ for Open Borders

Speaking to the families of those who have lost loved ones at the hands of illegal immigrant criminals Saturday afternoon in Houston, Texas, Donald Trump eviscerated the nation’s leaders for failing to protect American lives.

Speaking at a luncheon hosted by The Remembrance Project, the Republican presidential nominee said the victims of illegal alien crime had been “forced into the shadows” because politicians and media at large refuse to hear their stories and validate their grievances. Expressing his support for the families in their “lonely fight for justice,” Trump promised to stand with them and hold the government accountable for its “most fundamental duty” — to protect American lives.

“Our nation should not accept one lost American life because our country failed to enforce its laws.”

“There are a lot of numbers in the immigration debate. But let me give you the most important number of all,” Trump said. “That most important number of all is the number of American lives it is acceptable to lose in the name of illegal immigration. Let me tell you what that number is: ZERO,” he added. “Our nation should not accept one lost American life because our country failed to enforce its laws.”

Speaking softly to the audience members gathered at the event, Trump said that The Remembrance Project, which advocates for families who have lost loved ones at the hands of illegal immigrants, helped to bring attention to an issue that has become a “personal passion” for him.

“I have met many incredible people during the course of this campaign. But nothing has moved me more deeply than the time I’ve spent with the families of The Remembrance Project, and the incredible strength and courage you’ve shown in your often lonely fight for justice,” Trump said. “You are heroes. And your actions will help us to save the next thousand American citizens from losing their brothers, sisters, sons, daughters or parents.”

Trump lambasted the policies of the Obama administration and the policies promoted by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton that have led to the release of nearly 13,000 criminal aliens between 2008-2014 back into the U.S. after their home countries refused to take them back, according to a report from The Boston Globe. Decrying Clinton’s plans for "total amnesty," protecting Sanctuary Cities and authorizing a "catch-and-release" border policy, Trump called Clinton to account for her failures.

"Most of these 13,000 releases occurred on Hillary Clinton’s watch — she had the power and the duty to stop it cold and she didn’t do it," Trump told the grieving families. "Now, my opponent will never meet with you. She will never hear your stories. She will never share in your pain. She will only meet with the donors and the special interests and the open border advocates."

Trump promised to enforce the rule of law and work as an advocate for these families if he is elected on Nov. 8.

"Your cause and your stories are ignored by our political establishment because they are determined to keep our borders open at any cost. To them, your presence is just too inconvenient," Trump said. "This must end. And it must end right now. Not one more American life should be given up in the name of open borders."

Immediately after Trump’s speech, his campaign released a statement from Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions — a vocal Trump surrogate and fervent advocate for clamping down on illegal immigrant crime.

"This serious problem was well known to Hillary Clinton the entire time she was secretary of state. Yet she failed to stop this practice when she had the duty and responsibility do so as secretary of state, failing to follow clear legal requirement passed by Congress," Sessions said. "Hillary Clinton must explain to the American people, and especially to the victims of these criminal aliens who were not deported, why she did not act to prevent these tragic events."
