Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report 2017

Evaluation of 12 months of  Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) Inmate Population Profiles for year 2017 indicated the DOC’s 14 prisons incarcerated an average of 14,696 inmates per day.

Unpublished data obtained from the DOC indicated that from January 1st to December 1st of 2017 there were an average of 972 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) per day incarcerated in the state’s prison system; criminal aliens on a daily basis were 6.62 percent of the total prison population.

The number of criminal aliens in DOC prisons in 2017 increased from 953 alien inmates on January 1st to 973 alien inmates on December 1st, an increase of 20 alien inmates, a 2.10 percent increase in alien inmates for the reporting period.

Some background information, all the criminal aliens incarcerated in the DOC prisons were identified by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and have ICE detainers placed on them.

The following four column table reveals a series of monthly first day or second day snapshots on the number of all DOC inmates, domestic inmates, criminal alien inmates, percentage of inmates who were criminal aliens and averages for all the inmate numbers incarcerated in the state’s prisons in 2017.

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 to Oregonians in 2017.

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

The DOC’s incarceration cost for an average number of 972 criminal alien inmates incarcerated in the state’s prisons for 2017 was approximately ($91,902.60) per day, ($643,318.20) per week, and ($33,544,449.00) per year.

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

Dick Durbin: It's unlikely we'll reach a DACA deal, but 'I don't see a government shutdown coming'

Sen. Dick Durbin said Sunday senators are unlikely to reach an immigration deal before government funding expires later this week, and there won’t be another partial government shutdown over the issue.

“There is not likely to be a DACA deal, though we're working every single day on telephone calls and person to person to try to reach this bipartisan agreement,” said Durbin, D-Ill., the second-ranked Democrat, in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union." "I don't see a government shutdown coming.”

Durbin said he is encouraged about negotiations occurring between moderate Democrats and Republicans...
 
Trump announced last year that he would end the DACA program, and he gave Congress until March 5 to address the status of the immigrants, known as “Dreamers.”
 
Durbin said lawmakers are unlikely to reach a deal before Feb. 8...

Parts of the government temporarily shut down last month...

The government shutdown ended when Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, of New York, said he received a promise from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to allow debate and a vote on an immigration bill.

“We're making real progress,” Durbin said. “I want to salute the moderates in both the Republicans' and Democratic caucuses in the Senate. I do see a promise by Sen. McConnell to finally bring this critical issue that effects the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in America, finally bringing it to a full debate in the Senate. That's what we were looking for when there was a shutdown. We have achieved that goal. We're moving forward.”

The White House has said President Trump won’t sign an immigration bill unless it also funds a border wall and changes other parts of the immigration system, such as ending the visa lottery program and limiting family-based immigration.

Suspect accused of sexually assaulting 9-year-old girl was deported 16 years ago

 

Santiago Martinez-Flores - Photo from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office{ }

A man who was deported to Mexico 16 years ago has been convicted of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old Oregon girl while she slept in her bedroom last year.

The girl's mother told KATU News her 9-year-old and 5-year-old daughters were asleep on the night of Feb. 26 at the Clackamas Trails Apartments when a stranger broke into their bedroom through a window.

After being pinned down by the stranger, the girl managed to escape and run to her mom's room. When they realized what happened, the girl's dad took his gun and went into the bedroom, but the suspect had already escaped through the window.

Deputies were able to find the suspect's fingerprints, the mom told KATU. The little girl was able to recall what her attacker looked like, and helped deputies create a sketch of what he looked like.

Santiago Martinez-Flores, 48, was quickly identified as the suspect in the attack. He was arrested about two months after the attack at the California and Mexico border, about 15 miles from San Diego.

Martinez-Flores was charged with unlawful sexual penetration, sex abuse, attempted rape and burglary. He was found guilty Friday, and will be sentenced Monday.

Martinez-Flores has a lengthy criminal history that dates back to 1994. He was deported to Mexico in 2001 after serving two years in the Oregon Department of Corrections.

If you attend, please email van@numbersusa.com a brief description of your interaction and the immigration-related discussion. Or, call OFIR at 503.435.0141 and tell us about it.
 
Talking Points for your consideration:
 
You were responsible for shutting down the federal government, not Republicans. And for what? To amnesty illegal aliens. You're playing a destructive political game. You knew negotiations were ongoing. Do not vote for another shutdown.
 
You are pushing a legalization for so-called Dreamers but don't care what caused these young people to be in the country illegally in the first place. Their parents brought them while seeking to work here illegally. We'll be in this situation again unless we make it hard for employers to hire unlawful workers. That's why I want you to support mandatory E-Verify workplace eligibility checks for all employers. Don't subject another generation of young people to the same situation.
 
Our immigration system should help American workers get a decent pay raise and have a higher standard of living. That's why Sen. Tom Cotton introduced the RAISE Act, which would cut legal immigration from about one million per year to 500,000. I strongly support the bill because it will reduce job competition, including for the 50 million working-age Americans not in the workforce. Please co-sponsor the RAISE Act. Stand with American workers, not anti-American business owners who want more job competition to reduce wages.
 
The Visa Lottery must be terminated because it threatens our national security, as evidenced by the October 31 New York City terrorist attack by lottery winner Sayfullo Saipov. The program is fraud-ridden, because it has low application standards, and draws from nations that are state sponsors of terror or are known to harbor terrorist organizations. This dangerous combination made the program the subject of numerous congressional oversight hearings and a target for repeal. Please support a repeal of the Visa Lottery.
 
A biometric entry/exit system was a key recommendation of the 9/11 Commission after it learned that several of the hijackers had overstayed their visas. But despite Congressional approval and funding, the last two administrations failed to implement this essential system for tracking and removing visa over-stayers. There is no excuse for further delays in these dangerous times, so I want you to help get this done.

 

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report December 2017

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 explicitly 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 (The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from December 30, 2017.).

Inmate Citizenship:

- México 23,805 inmates, 13.0 percent;
- Colombia 1,683 inmates, 0.9 percent;
- Dominican Republic 1,443 inmates, 0.8 percent;
- Cuba 1,196 inmates, 0.7 percent;
- Other / unknown countries 9,080 inmates, 4.9 percent;
- United States 145,851 inmates, 79.7 percent;

Total Inmates: 183,058 inmates.

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

Combining December 30th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 37,207 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 20.3 percent of the federal prison population; more than two in every ten inmates were criminal aliens.

With 23,805 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 64.0 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 12,246 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 7.1 percent of the federal prison population.

An urgent wakeup call to all American citizens, eventually the majority of these criminal aliens from México, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Cuba and other countries will be released from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons after completing their prison terms.

The country of Mexico, America’s neighbor to the south, is both historically and literally a land bridge of many frequently unsecured trails, roads, highways and railways used by persons trying and far too often successfully illegally entering our country.

United States citizens should, if they haven’t already, contact their members of the U.S. Congress (two Senators and one Representative) and tell them to support President Donald J. Trump’s commitment to build a wall (fences and technology) along the U.S. border with Mexico to stop the threat of tens of thousands of criminal aliens, once they are released from the federal prison system and deported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to their countries of origin, ability to illegally return to this nation and harm its citizens and residents.

PCC opens center for 'Dreamers,' other undocumented students at Rock Creek Campus

The state's largest college opened a new center last week specifically to help support students who qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Portland Community College officially opened the door Jan. 22 to its DACA Resource Center at the school's Rock Creek campus on the west side. The school says it's the first center of its kind in the state.  ... undocumented students brought to the United States as children, commonly referred to as Dreamers.

"At PCC, we recognize that dreamer students face unique barriers that require additional mental, emotional and financial support," Liliana Luna, Rock Creek's Multicultural Center coordinator and a DACA recipient said in a statement. "The new DREAM Center focuses on the empowerment, support and retention of dreamers and their families." 

...The $50,000 effort is backed by the Meyer Memorial Trust and the Oregon Immigrant and Refugee Funders Collaborative.

DACA recipients with work permits face a March 5 deadline for renewal...

The most effective tool of all: E-VERIFY

Why is E-Verify seldom mentioned in the immigration conversation?

Rosemary Jenks, of NumbersUSA, a lawyer and long-time activist for reduced immigration, gives the reasons here, plainly, for all to see.  Citizens and voters had better pay attention.

 

E-Verify Ignored in DACA Negotiations Because ‘Members of Congress Know It Will Work’

By Robert Kraychik, Breitbart.com, 23 Jan 2018

Members of Congress broadly oppose a legislative nationwide E-Verify mandate for employers because “they know it will work,” said NumbersUSA’s Rosemary Jenks, explaining why E-Verify is not being pushed in congressional negotiations for an amnesty deal for recipients of the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Jenks further noted that both parties are beholden to special interests supportive of “mass migration.”

Jenks offered her analysis during a Monday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with Breitbart News’s Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak. …

 “I think [E-Verify] is not being pushed precisely because members of Congress know it will work,” said Jenks. “I think that is exactly the reason it’s not being pushed. Democrats, for sure, don’t want mandatory E-Verify because they know it will discourage illegal immigration, which will discourage the push for the next amnesty. And, let’s face it, the establishment Republicans don’t want it because they know it will be effective and eliminate their cheap labor pools.”

Special interests, including “big business,” “organized religion,” and “ethnic advocacy groups,” subvert popular American will via their funding and political agitation, said Jenks, adding, “It’s about the donors and about the Democrat Party wanting mass immigration. Those are the two factors that rule every immigration debate. It’s always the big business donors, organized religion, the ethnic advocacy groups. All of the money is behind mass immigration, and then, there’s the American people on the other side. That’s the problem we have had. That’s why we haven’t controlled immigration in the last five decades.”

Legislating a national mandate for E-Verify use by employers is more important than construction of a southern border wall, argued Jenks. “In our view, mandatory E-Verify is more important than a wall. So that is the one place where we’re hoping that we can move the administration to saying E-Verify is a must-have.”

Approximately half of “the illegal population” is composed of foreigners who lawfully entered the homeland and overstay their visas, said Jenks. An E-Verify mandate on employers, she added, would “mostly shut down” the lure of employment for illegal aliens. …
