Bad bills in Legislature – Read This

Alert date: 
2019-03-16
Alert body: 

Two very bad bills have been introduced in the current session of the Oregon Legislature.

HB 2932 “prohibits courts from inquiring into defendant's immigration status or requiring defendant to disclose defendant's immigration status at time of plea or at any other time during criminal proceeding.  Requires court to allow defendant, upon request, additional time for plea decision after informing defendant about possible adverse immigration consequences of plea. Declares emergency, effective on passage.”

This bill to protect illegal aliens and legitimize illegal immigration, opening our borders to the world without limit, has 26 sponsors, all Democrats, and may be fast-tracked through the Legislature as certain bills were done in the previous session.

A hearing is scheduled for Monday, March 18, at 1 p.m. by the House Judiciary Committee, which has 11 members, 8 Democrats and 3 Republicans.  There seems little doubt the Committee will approve the bill and send it on to the Legislature for a vote.

Please contact your State Representative and urge him/her to oppose this bill. Whether your Representative is a Democrat, a Republican, or other, it’s worthwhile to express your view.

------------

Another bad bill related to immigration which is of concern now is HB 2015It “eliminates requirement that person provide proof of legal presence before Department of Transportation issues noncommercial driver license, noncommercial driver permit or identification card.  Becomes operative January 1, 2021. Declares emergency, effective on passage.”

See Overview of the bill at:  https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2019R1/Measures/Overview/HB2015?pubDate=2019-03-04-16-33.  It was referred to the House Transportation Committee where a hearing has not yet been scheduled.  You can receive notices of actions on this bill by clicking the top-right link on the Overview page.

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

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 February 23, 2019.).

Inmate Citizenship:

- México 21,744 inmates, 12.1 percent;
- Colombia 1,638 inmates, 0.9 percent;
- Dominican Republic 1,444 inmates, 0.8 percent;
- Cuba 1,175 inmates, 0.7 percent;
- Other / unknown countries 8,911 inmates, 4.9 percent;
- United States 145,005 inmates, 80.6 percent;

Total Inmates: 179,917 inmates.

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

Combining February 23rd BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 34,912 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 19.4 percent of the federal prison population.

With 21,744 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 62.3 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 10,874 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.5 percent of the federal prison population.

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 913 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($98,841.38) per day, ($691,889.66) per week, and ($36,077,103.70) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 913 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

Illegal immigration problem bursting at the seams

An investigation by the Immigration Reform Law Institute found that over 1.7 million illegal aliens from Central America and Mexico living in the United States have been ordered removed or have pending final orders of removal, but are still living here.

  “Among the roughly 12 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States, we have a population greater than the City of Philadelphia’s that has been ordered removed or has pending final removal orders—from Central America and Mexico alone. Instead of taking on more aliens from caravans, our country should expedite the removal of those who have already received due process and been given removal orders.” 

At the southern border thousands of migrants continue to appear, claiming asylum.

“Once released, asylum seekers receive work permits while their often-meritless claims go through the backlogged immigration court system, which often delays hearings for years. Last year, nearly half of the completed asylum cases that involved aliens who claimed credible fear resulted in the alien failing to appear in court or file an application for asylum. Before 2013, around 1 in every 100 arriving aliens claimed credible fear and sought asylum, but today, that number has spiked to 1 in 10 as a result of encouragement and coaching by unscrupulous anti-borders groups.”

A real national emergency: U.S. besieged by persons defying immigration law

Why do we send our military to protect countries half way around the world while neglecting the safety and well-being of our own citizens by allowing millions of persons to enter and remain here in disregard of our immigration laws?  Their character and purposes are unknown, and events of recent decades show that many have committed terrible crimes against citizens.

President Trump’s declaration of a national immigration emergency has brought high-decibel cries of alarm from open-borders advocates, whose views are generally reflected in the complicit media.  Critics attack the declaration as something unheard of, a grossly inappropriate action.  They want to deflect attention away from the reasons for the declaration, so they claim procedural impropriety and talk about that instead.

Actually, declarations of national emergency are not as exceptional as alarmists claim.  Several reports give background.  Kris Kobach, former Kansas Secretary of State and an expert on immigration law, has spoken clearly on the subject recently. 

Here are excerpts from an article about the National Emergencies Act by Ken Klukowski, senior legal editor for Breitbart News:

              “… Congress enacted the National Emergencies Act on September 14, 1976, two months before Jimmy Carter was elected president. Since that time and beginning with Carter, presidents have declared 58 states of emergency. …

              “…, the longest-running state of national emergency was the first one ever declared under the National Emergencies Act. On November 14, 1979, President Carter signed Executive Order 12170, declaring a national emergency responding to Iran-sponsored terrorism.

              “That emergency is 39 years old, with no end in sight.

              “There are currently 31 national emergencies. These include President Bill Clinton’s declaration of emergency on October 21, 1995, dealing with narcotics traffickers, to President George W. Bush’s declaration of emergency on September 14, 2001, dealing with the 9/11 terrorist attacks, to President Barack Obama’s declaration of emergency on March 9, 2015, blocking property and suspending entry from certain people causing trouble in Venezuela. …

              “Under the National Emergencies Act, President Trump has full authority to declare an emergency regarding the crisis on the U.S. border for many reasons, such an drug trafficking. For example, most of one of the deadliest drugs killing Americans right now, fentanyl, is made in China, but fully 85 percent of that lethal drug enters the United States through the Mexican border. Such a declaration would be consistent in scope and effect with many of the 31 current emergencies.”

Despite threats, ‘sanctuary’ cities are getting their grants -- except Oregon

MONTPELIER, Vt. — About 18 months after the Trump administration threatened to withhold law enforcement grants from nearly 30 places around the country it felt weren’t doing enough to work with federal immigration agents, all but one have received or been cleared to get the money, the Justice Department said.

In most cases, courts chipped away at the crackdown that escalated in November 2017...saying those policies may violate federal law.

Of those 29 jurisdictions ... only Oregon has yet to be cleared to receive the grants from 2017, a Justice Department spokesman told The Associated Press this week....

"State and local law enforcement agencies already are stretched thin, and withholding these federal grants only makes their work more difficult," Leahy said in an email to the AP. "It's unthinkable that the Trump Justice Department would hold these funds hostage over an unrelated dispute on immigration policy."

Last summer, the U.S. Conference of Mayors sued in Illinois on behalf of its member cities focusing on the issue. In September, a federal court temporarily blocked the Justice Department from withholding the funds for the jurisdictions represented by the conference.

...Similar cases are being litigated across the country, and the Justice Department is considering appealing some unfavorable rulings.

The Trump administration has long argued that places that don't cooperate with federal immigration authorities, often called "sanctuary cities," pose a threat to public safety.

"I continue to urge all jurisdictions under review to reconsider policies that place the safety of their communities and their residents at risk," Sessions said in a statement in January 2018. "Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities defies common sense and undermines the rule of law."

The details differ by jurisdiction, but the Justice Department felt law enforcement agencies in those communities weren't sufficiently committing themselves to cooperating with federal immigration agents when officers came in contact with people who might not be in the country legally...

Some, but not all, of the 28 jurisdictions were cleared for the grants without changing the policies that triggered the original concern from the Justice Department, now led by Attorney General William Barr. And not all of the places actually have the money in hand yet, or have been told they've been cleared to get it....

"So no funds (were) lost on our end," said police Sgt. David Lefont, noting the total was less than $100,000.

That some of the threatened cities ended up changing their policies amounts to at least a partial victory for the Trump administration, said Jessica Vaughan, the director of policy studies for the Center For Immigration Studies, which advocates for tight restrictions on immigration.

"What it looks like to me, the Trump Administration is not able to fully enforce cooperation with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) to the extent they would like to, but it is able to fully enforce compliance with existing federal law that some sanctuary jurisdictions have had to change their policies in order to get their money," Vaughan said.

...Even before the 2017 letters were sent, federal courts across the country had begun to rule against the Trump administration's efforts. And they continue.

A federal judge in Los Angeles ruled Feb. 15 that the Justice Department exceeded its authority and ordered a permanent, nationwide injunction against requiring police departments to cooperate with immigration authorities in order to receive the grants.

Oregon, the only one of the 29 jurisdictions not yet cleared for the 2017 grants, last fall filed its own lawsuit against the Justice Department. The lawsuit, which also covers grants for 2018, accused Trump and Matthew Whitaker, acting attorney general at the time, of trying to "impermissibly commandeer the resources" of Oregon and its largest city, Portland.

"For years, these grants have provided millions of dollars to law enforcement in Oregon," Rosenblum said in November. "But, suddenly these public safety funds have been withdrawn because Oregon will not submit to U.S. DOJ's demand that Oregon participate in its immigration enforcement efforts."

Oregon Department of Corrections: Mexican National Crime Report January 2019

Information obtained from the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) indicated on January 1, 2019 that 726 of the 909 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) in the state’s prison system were Mexican nationals — 79.87 percent of the criminal alien prison population (Note: The number of Mexican nationals incarcerated in DOC prisons does not necessarily equal the number of Oregon residents victimized by this specific group of criminal aliens).

Using DOC U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) immigration detainer numbers, the following table reveals the total number criminal alien inmates along with the number and percentage of those alien inmates incarcerated on January 1st in the state’s prisons who declared themselves as being Mexican nationals.

Beyond the DOC Mexican national incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per type of crime, criminal aliens from Mexico 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 726 Mexican national inmates is approximately ($78,596.76) per day, ($550,177.32) per week, and ($28,687,817.40) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 726 Mexican national inmates includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.
