Illegal Immigrants Arrested In Oregon County’s Biggest-Ever Meth Bust

Two men who were arrested earlier this month for transporting more than 70 pounds of methamphetamine through Oregon are Mexican nationals living in the U.S. illegally, The Daily Caller News Foundation learned.

Israel Mercado Mendoza of Creswell, Ore., and Rigoberto Morfin Pedroza of Los Angeles were arrested March 17 following a traffic stop on Interstate 5 in Douglas County, Ore. During the stop, a police dog signaled the presence of drugs in the car. A subsequent search led to the discovery of 74 pounds of meth, the largest seizure in county history, according to the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team.

Mercado Mendoza and Morfin Pedroza are illegal immigrants, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials. They were taken into custody and detained at the Douglas County Jail, where federal authorities placed immigration detention requests for both men.

“On March 19, ICE lodged detainers on Israel Salvador Mercado-Mendoza and Rigoberto Morfin-Pedroza, both citizens of Mexico illegally in the U.S...

Cross obtained the men’s immigration status as a part of his research into Oregon illegal aliens’ criminal activity...

Cross’ research has shown the vast majority of criminal aliens in Oregon’s prison system are serving time for what the FBI defines as violent crimes — murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault — or sex crimes under the Oregon criminal code.

Of the 975 Oregon DOC inmates with active ICE detainers as of February, 744 have been convicted of those violent crimes or sex offenses..

Oregon is one of the nation’s most active states when it comes to limiting cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities. It has had a sanctuary state law on the books since 1987....

(RELATED: Forget California, Oregon Is The Foremost ‘Sanctuary State’ In The US)

State officials have been particularly fastidious about refusing to honor ICE detainers. In 2014, a U.S. magistrate judge found Clackamas County, Ore. violated an illegal immigrant Maria Miranda-Olivares’s Fourth Amendment rights when it held her on an ICE detainer after she was eligible for bail. To avoid further civil lawsuits, the Oregon Sheriffs Association recommended jail officials stop responding to immigration detention requests unless they are backed by a federal arrest warrant.

Mercado Mendoza and Morfin Pedroza were charged with Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine, Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine, and Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine. If sold by the pound, local street value of the drugs found in their car would be roughly $370,000, according to DINT detectives.

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) The DOC’s incarceration cost for its 975 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($105,553.50) per day, ($738,874.50) per week, and ($38,527,027.50) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 975 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

Suspect deported twice before alleged rape of underage Seaside girl

A Seaside man detained by and U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement outside Clatsop County Circuit Court earlier this month was deported twice before allegedly raping a teenage girl, according to the federal agency.

Anastacio Eugenio Lopez Fabian, 24, allegedly had sex with the girl several times beginning in 2016, when she was under 14 years old. Seaside police arrested him in February after he allegedly assaulted her. He was released the same day after posting $25,000 bail.

He has been charged with two counts of second-degree rape, three counts of third-degree rape, fourth-degree assault and harassment. A mandatory minimum sentence of more than six years in prison applies to second-degree rape convictions.

ICE detained him in the courthouse parking lot as he arrived for a hearing. He is in custody at the private Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington, according to the federal agency’s records. Fabian was deported to Guatemala in 2013 and 2014, according to a statement from ICE spokeswoman Carissa Cutrell, who also said the Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office did not alert the agency of his most recent arrest.

“Hours after his release, ICE deportation officers received information from federal databases about his prior immigration history and his most recent arrest. From there, they conducted an online review of jail and court records and determined that Lopez-Fabian did not have lawful status in the country, and subsequently, targeted him for immigration enforcement.” Cutrell said in an email. “ICE focuses its enforcement resources on individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security.”

Sheriff Tom Bergin said the timing and coordination of Fabian’s initial arrest and release did not allow for his office to notify the agency.

“He posted bail, so there’s not much we can do unless ICE notifies us, which it didn’t,” Bergin said. “ICE puts out a blanket statement every time they do these things because they want to cover their butts. Believe me, we want to hold these guys.”

The federal agency criticized the county last year for not adhering to its requests to detain undocumented immigrants. Bergin pointed to a U.S. District Court case in Portland in which a judge ruled in favor of a woman detained by ICE at a Clackamas County jail, claiming the Fourth Amendment protected her against unreasonable search and seizure.

The federal court ruling made sheriff’s offices hesitant to detain people based on immigration status.

The federal agency often does not seek a warrant for an immigration violator signed by a judge, relying instead on a warrant signed by one of its own agents. Bergin suggested that his office would be on steadier constitutional grounds to detain people like Fabian if the agency obtained judicial warrants.

“All the federal government has to do is change one tiny little thing,” Bergin said. “I think the current administration is looking at doing that.”

In the meantime, lawmakers — including U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, D-Oregon — have proposed legislation that would deter immigration arrests at courthouses, schools and health clinics. Some criminal justice officials have suggested the practice discourages immigrants from appearing in court either as witnesses or defendants.

Bergin disagrees.

“I don’t have a problem with it. We’re worried about the actual criminals that are causing problems and doing harm to our citizens,” Bergin said. “If they’re a wanted criminal, they’re not going to show up anyway. I don’t think it affects it one way or another.”

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

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.
