ICE detains man at Astoria courthouse

Federal immigration agents detained a man at the Clatsop County Courthouse in Astoria on Thursday after spraying people who were trying to escort him away.

Fabian Alberto Zamora-Rodriguez appeared in Circuit Court for a hearing related to felony charges that he encouraged child sexual abuse. Aware U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were outside the second-floor courtroom, immigrant rights’ advocates and the man’s mother and partner tightly surrounded him as he tried to leave.Federal immigration agents detained a man at the Clatsop County Courthouse in Astoria on Thursday after spraying people who were trying to escort him away.

Fabian Alberto Zamora-Rodriguez appeared in Circuit Court for a hearing related to felony charges that he encouraged child sexual abuse. Aware U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were outside the second-floor courtroom, immigrant rights’ advocates and the man’s mother and partner tightly surrounded him as he tried to leave.

Immigration agents took a man into custody at the Clatsop County Courthouse on Thursday.

A video of the encounter, shared with The Astorian by a bystander, Maria Senaida Perez, shows immigration agents confronting the people in the hallway and releasing what appears to be pepper spray before grabbing Zamora-Rodriguez and taking him into custody.

Tanya Roman, a spokeswoman for ICE, said she was unable to comment on Zamora-Rodriguez’s immigration status or the legal reason for his detention due to privacy concerns.

“It is actually often due to the implementation of unreasonable ‘sanctuary city’ policies that prevent ICE from being notified of the presence of criminal aliens in jails or prisons, which then necessitates that we utilize options like enforcement actions at courthouses to accomplish our law enforcement mission,” she said in an email.

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has every legal right to carry out its mission on courthouse grounds if the circumstances of an enforcement action require it.”

Sheriff Tom Bergin said he was notified by ICE before the immigration agents took local action.

“We need to start supporting ICE in their efforts of when people are here illegally,” the sheriff said. “This isn’t a game. These people are here illegally and if ICE has a detainer for them or a warrant then they need to abide by the laws in the state and the United States of America. I’m sorry, that’s how it is. That’s how it should be.”

Bergin said the people who surrounded Zamora-Rodriguez were interfering.

“I’m sorry, but if they have a warrant and the guy needs to go into custody, then he needs to go into custody,” the sheriff said. “But when these protesters or whatever they were, these people that wanted to make sure he didn’t go to jail surrounded him, they’re interfering with a police officer.”

Shaken

Hours afterward, Andrea Gonzalez, a program coordinator with the Lower Columbia Hispanic Council, she said was still shaken by the physical nature of the encounter and that it took place inside the courthouse.

“People don’t have rights all of a sudden?” said Gonzalez, who was sprayed. “I don’t know. It just feels ... it feels wrong.”

Under Oregon’s sanctuary law, sheriff’s deputies and others in state and local law enforcement are prohibited from enforcing federal immigration law if the suspect’s only crime is being in the country illegally. Last year, Bergin wrote a letter signed by 15 other county sheriffs supporting a ballot measure that would have repealed the sanctuary law. Voters rejected the measure in November.

The video shows sheriff’s deputies in the hallway at the courthouse on Thursday, but they did not appear to participate in or seek to stop the detention.

“I’m not surprised. Tom Bergin is the sheriff and I know his stance,” Gonzalez said. “And I’m not saying all sheriffs are bad. But I mean clearly they are cooperating with them and they were what, OK with people who are just trying to escort someone out being hurt by these officials? People from their community? That’s disturbing to me for sure.”

Judge Paula Brownhill, the presiding judge of the Circuit Court, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Earlier this year, after a man was detained by ICE outside the courthouse in December, the judge echoed complaints from many judges and civil liberties’ advocates nationally. “Not only criminal defendants, but civil litigants, crime victims, and witnesses may be reluctant to come to court for fear of encountering ICE,” she said.

District Attorney Ron Brown said ICE’s local action was legal. He said that people inside the courthouse could detect the pepper spray hours after it was released.

“It’s not something we like to see at all, but it does happen,” Brown said.

Roman, the ICE spokeswoman, said civil immigration enforcement actions taken inside courthouses can reduce safety risks to the public. “Arrests that take place inside courthouses are undertaken in coordination with courthouse security leadership with the same level of professionalism and respect that ICE officers and agents are committed to practicing every day,” she said.

“ICE does not make civil immigration arrests inside courthouses indiscriminately. As with all other federal agency planned enforcement actions, ICE arrests at courthouses are the result of targeted enforcement actions against specific, targeted aliens.”

Roman said, in years past, “most of these individuals would have been turned over to ICE by local authorities upon their release from jail based on ICE detainers. Now that some cities do not honor ICE detainers, these individuals, who often have significant criminal histories, are released onto the street, presenting a potential public safety threat.”

Online activity

Zamora-Rodriguez was arrested in February after the sheriff’s office said he showed up at a local park for what he believed was going to be a sexual rendezvous with an 11-year-old boy. Online, deputies had been posing as the boy and the boy’s 40-year-old babysitter.

He has pleaded not guilty to encouraging child sexual abuse and other felony charges. At the hearing Thursday, a case management hearing was set for October.

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report June 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 June 22, 2019.).

Inmate Citizenship:

- Mexico 21,627 inmates, 12.0 percent;
- Colombia 1,664 inmates, 0.9 percent;
- Dominican Republic 1,452 inmates, 0.8 percent;
- Cuba 1,161 inmates, 0.6 percent;
- Other / unknown countries 9,105 inmates, 5.0 percent;
- United States 145,335 inmates, 80.6percent;

Total Inmates: 180,344 inmates.

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

Combining June 22nd BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 35,009 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 19.4 percent of the federal prison population.

With 21,627 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 61.8 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 10,984 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.5 percent of the federal prison population.

by Paul Bedard | July 05, 2019 01:23 PM

One-fifth of all federal prison inmates are not U.S citizens, many facing illegal immigration charges, according to new data from the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

There are a total of 35,009 “criminal aliens” of 180,344 in prison, and 60% are Mexican, according to an analysis provided to Secrets by David Olen Cross of Salem, Ore., a crime researcher who writes on immigration issues and foreign national crime.

The prison data in Cross’ report shows:

• Mexico 21,627 inmates, 12%.

• Colombia 1,664 inmates, 0.9%.

• Dominican Republic 1,452 inmates, 0.8%.

• Cuba 1,161 inmates, 0.6%.

• Other / unknown countries 9,105 inmates, 5%.

• United States 145,335 inmates, 80.6%.

And he added, “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 10,984 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.5% of the federal prison population.”

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report for Recalcitrant Countries May 2019

Information obtained from the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) on May 1, 2019 reveals that 56 of the 910 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) in the state’s prison system were from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries that may not take back their own criminal citizens after they are released from DOC prisons and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for possible removal from the United States of America (USA) — 6.15 percent of the criminal alien prison population (Note: The names of recalcitrant countries that may not take back their own criminal citizens has been in a state of flux in recent years.).

Some background information, all 56 criminal aliens incarcerated in the DOC prison system from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries were identified by ICE and have immigration detainers placed on them.

Criminal aliens from 15 current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries were incarcerated in the DOC prison system on May 1, 2019:

Thailand (three criminal aliens), Egypt (two criminal aliens), Ethiopia (two criminal aliens), Sierra Leone (two criminal aliens), Bhutan (one criminal alien), Brazil (one criminal alien), Iraq (one criminal alien), Nigeria (one criminal alien) and Sudan (one criminal alien) were the nine current designated “at risk of non-compliance” (ARNC) countries;

Cuba (16 criminal aliens), Vietnam (12 criminal aliens), Laos (six criminal aliens), Cambodia (four criminal aliens), China (three criminal aliens) and Burma (one criminal alien) were the six current designated “recalcitrant / uncooperative” (RUC) countries.

Using DOC ICE detainer numbers, the following table reveals the self-declared countries of origin of the 56 criminal alien inmates from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries by number and percentage incarcerated on May 1st 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 current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries pose a significant economic cost to Oregon tax payers.

An individual inmate incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 56 criminal alien prison population from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries is approximately ($6,062.56) per day, ($42,437.92) per week, and ($2,212,834.40) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 56 criminal aliens from current designated “at risk of non-compliance” or “recalcitrant / uncooperative” countries includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

Immigration Agency Says It Plans Deportation Operation Aimed at Undocumented Families

WASHINGTON - The acting directtor of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said on Wednesday that he would follow through with plans to send agents into communities to round up and deport undocumented families, in the Trump administration’s latest attempt to deter large-scale migration of Central Americans to the southwest border.

The acting director, Mark Morgan, who has signaled for weeks that there would be a heightened focus on deporting families, told reporters that agents would target more than 2,000 immigrant family members who already have deportation orders.

“Do not come,” Mr. Morgan said in describing the message he wants to send to people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador who think they will be able to remain in the United States once they get across the border. “Do not risk it. Do not pay the cartels an exorbitant amount of money because once you receive due process and get a final order, you will be removed.”

Mr. Morgan’s comments came after President Trump tweeted on Monday that the immigration agency would deport millions of people next week....

The agency has, however, taken steps in recent days to prepare for mass arrests...

“I don’t want to send ICE agents to their workplace,” Mr. Morgan said. “I don’t want to send ICE agents to their home. I don’t want to send ICE agents to try and track them down and apprehend them in their communities and town. But we’ve applied due process. We’ve tried to work with them.”

The targeted operation is expected to occur over the course of multiple days and is expected in the coming weeks...agents would be rounding up undocumented immigrant families if they failed to report to an immigration agency field office for deportation.

Immigration officials have said the increase in migration has crowded facilities and pushed resources beyond capacity, prompting the release of migrants into the general population.

More than 144,200 migrants were taken into custody at the border last month, the highest monthly total in 13 years. Many of them seek asylum but only a minority of them ultimately win their cases in immigration courts. The families are usually released...

Among the 2,000 undocumented immigrants being targeted now are those whose court cases were expedited, having typically missed a court date and been ordered deported from the country in absentia. They were sent letters in February demanding they report to an immigrations and customs office to leave the country, Mr. Morgan said.

While Mr. Morgan said the agency would still target violent criminals for removal, “priorities do not mean other categories are exempt.”

“And again,” he added, “I think family units are a good example of that.”

Homeland Security Department officials have changed their minds multiple times in recent days over when to start the operations...

“It’s people, and people are complicated,” said Ronald D. Vitiello, the former acting director of the immigration and customs agency who had his nomination pulled by Mr. Trump after he warned of the bad impressions the raids would leave. “Some of them might be sick and need to be treated for illness. Some might be separated in a way that the child might be at school and the parents at home.”

More than 207,000 migrants have been released since December of last year, Mr. Morgan said. Many of them, he said, have taken advantage of laws that prevent the extended confinement of children, which enabled families to be quickly released after being apprehended.

“It’s clear if you grab a child that’s your passport in the United States,” Mr. Morgan said.

But the mass arrests come with logistical challenges.

There is limited space in the family detention facilities where migrants would be held while the government tries to secure their travel documents, which are required to deport them. But keeping families there could result in violations of the agreement, known as the Flores settlement, that established standards for the detention of children and limits it to 20 days.

While immigration authorities could theoretically deport all those who have evaded removal orders, they will not be able to remove them all immediately. They are likely to contend with motions to reopen cases of those migrants who missed their hearing along with requests for a stay of removal.

Among the reasons immigrants could cite to justify reopening their case would be their failure to receive proper notice of the removal hearing...

The result, immigration lawyers predicted, is likely to be a flood of challenges clogging the already overburdened court system.

“Lawyers are going to come running,” said Kelli Stump, an immigration lawyer in Oklahoma City who specializes in removal defense.

A version of this article appears in print on June 19, 2019, on Page A16 of the New York edition with the headline: About 2,000 Family Members Are Focus of Deportation Plan.

 

Deadly consequences of Oregon’s official protection of criminal aliens

The Oregon Legislature has just added yet another law, HB 2932, protecting criminal aliens, putting their welfare above the welfare of citizens.  HB 2932 requires that information on a prisoner’s immigration status be withheld from courts. The bill was passed in the Oregon Legislature on a party-line vote with Democrats voting Aye and Republicans Nay.

Oregon’s sanctuary policies deliberately risk the safety of citizens.  These policies tie the hands of local law enforcement causing them not to cooperate with ICE, a simple step only requiring sufficient advance notification when an identified illegal alien is to be released from jail.  

See this report by ICE showing examples of the results of such policies:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) - News Release, June 17, 2019

COOPERATION BETWEEN ICE, LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT MAKES FOR SAFER COMMUNITIES

SEATTLE – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) relies upon the cooperation of local law enforcement officials to expeditiously remove dangerous criminals from our communities. ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations’ (ERO) mission is to identify, arrest and remove aliens who present a danger to national security or are a risk to public safety.

Without the cooperation of local officials, EROs ability to perform its federally mandated mission is hindered and dangerous criminal aliens, like those described below, could remain in our communities to reoffend.

  • Illegal alien arrested for murdering, dismembering victim after local police fail to notify ICE of his release.  In October 2017, ICE identified Rosalio Ramos-Ramos who is an illegally present Honduran citizen with prior criminal convictions and four prior removals from the United States at a city jail in Washington. ICE lodged a detainer, but he was released without notification to ICE. In January 2018, Ramos-Ramos was arrested again and booked at a local county jail for murder. ICE has lodged another detainer with local jail officials.
  • County jail ignores ICE detainer, illegal alien suspected of killing wife after release.
    In March 2018, ICE located and lodged a detainer on Martin Gallo-Gallardo, a citizen of Mexico who was unlawfully present in the United States, after locating him in an Oregon county jail. Jail officials did not honor the immigration detainer and released the convicted criminal two days later, without notifying ICE. Following his release, ICE made multiple, unsuccessful attempts to locate and arrest the man. In October 2018, Gallo-Gallardo was arrested again, this time on a felony murder charges for allegedly killing his wife.
  • County jail refuses to honor ICE detainer of man who sexually assaulted dog
    In February 2019, an illegally present Mexican citizen was encountered by ICE officials at a local Oregon county jail. ICE lodged an immigration detainer on the man the same day for violating immigration laws. In April 2019, the man was convicted of multiple charges involving animal abuse. The county jail did not honor the immigration detainer and released him without notice to immigration officials. ICE apprehended the man at his residence and served him a notice to appear. He is currently being held at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma pending immigration proceedings.

A detainer is a request to local law enforcement agencies that ICE be notified as early as practicable – ideally at least 48 hours – before a removable alien is released from criminal custody and then briefly maintain custody of the alien for up to 48 hours to allow ICE to assume custody for removal purposes. ICE lodges detainers on individuals who have been arrested on local criminal charges and are suspected of being deportable, so that ICE can take custody of that person when he or she is released from local authorities. 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.
