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 901 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($97,542.26) per day, ($682,795.82) per week, and ($35,602,924.90) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 901 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

New federal program may curb Oregon’s Sanctuary law

ICE has announced a new program setting up a convenient way for local law enforcement to use warrants for arrest if needed to circumvent sanctuary policies. 

The cry in Oregon for some time when objections are raised to release of criminal aliens from jail instead of holding them for ICE detention, has been -- Tell ICE to get a warrant.  That was time-consuming and difficult, as explained by U.S. Attorney Billy Williams in an op-ed:

“Some sheriffs suggest that, short of ICE agents obtaining a federal criminal arrest warrant, they do not have any legal obligation to share information or hold an individual in custody who is subject to a detainer. This requirement is inherently unreasonable as illegal aliens are frequently held for only a matter of hours. Furthermore, it is nearly impossible to obtain a federal criminal arrest warrant without basic identifying information.”

In a news release of May 6, ICE explains the new procedure in detail. See the news release here.

NumbersUSA has issued a brief summary with main details included:

New Program Will Exempt Police From Sanctuary-Detainer Restrictions

Mon, May 6th 2019

The Trump Administration announced a new Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) program designed for local law-enforcement agencies that want to honor immigration detainers but are prohibited from doing so under state and/or local sanctuary policies. According to a press release, ICE created the Warrant Service Officer (WSO) program at the request of the National Sheriffs’ Association and the Major County Sheriffs of America.

“Policies that limit cooperation with ICE undermine public safety, prevent the agency from executing its federally mandated mission and increase the risks for officers forced to make at-large arrests in unsecure locations,” said Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence. “The WSO program will protect communities from criminal aliens who threaten vulnerable populations with violence, drugs and gang activity by allowing partner jurisdictions the flexibility to make immigration arrests in their jail or correctional facility.”

After a jurisdiction signs a Memorandum of Agreement with ICE, it will nominate officers who will be trained to perform WSO functions. The officers will be responsible for serving administrative warrants and arresting targeted aliens at jails or correctional facilities where they work. ICE will then have 48 hours to pick up aliens. ICE will supervise the WSO process, and pay for the cost of training local officers.

In addition to partnering with law-enforcement agencies in sanctuary jurisdictions, the program will serve rural jurisdictions that lack the budget and personnel resources to become 287(g) partners.

Pres. Trump tells it like it is

In an interview last Sunday, April 28, President Trump describes the crisis at the border in plain terms.  His colorful language is well-suited to getting the meanings across without cover of diplomacy.

From a Fox News report:

Excerpts:

President Trump told “Sunday Morning Future”’ that illegal immigrants are pouring into the country at unprecedented rates “because our economy is so good’’ and ‘‘everyone wants a piece of it’" -- and, he asserted, Democrats have now provided major incentives for illegal immigrants to bring children with them as a legal shield.

‘’You have to have Perry Mason involved” in order to fight some immigration challenges and enforce border security, Trump said, alluding to the backlog of immigration cases and a recent Ninth Circuit ruling requiring that asylum applicants be allowed to go before a federal judge.

"We’re moving people out so fast," he added. "The problem is we have to register them, we have to bring them to court.  Another country just says sorry, you can’t come into our country and they walk them out.  In our country you have to bring them to court, you have to have Perry Mason involved, I mean, you know, it’s all legal.  You have lawyers standing at the border, our people, lawyers, wise guys standing at the border, signing people up."

Trump continued: "Every time they catch a cold they try and blame Border Patrol.  It’s a disgrace what’s going on, and it could be solved in 15 minutes if the Democrats would give us the votes, it would be over."

"What we need is new laws that don’t allow this so when somebody comes in we say sorry, you got to go out.  . ... We have a court system with 900,000 cases behind it. They have a court that needs to hear 900,000 cases," Trump said, referring to overloaded immigration and asylum courts. "It's a system Congress can fix -- and they don't get off their ass."

Trump called the situation at the border like "Disneyland" now that purported family units cannot be separated for sustained periods. Under the administration's "no-tolerance policy," adults who crossed the border with children were charged with illegal entry into the U.S. -- and, shortly afterwards, had to be separated from minors in their group under the Flores decree.

"We -- we go out and we stop the separation," Trump said. "The problem is you have 10 times more people coming up with their families.  It’s like Disneyland now.  You know, before you’d get separated so people would say let’s not go up.  Now you don’t get separated and, you know, while that sounds nice and all, what happens is you have -- literally you have 10 times more families coming up because they’re not going to be separated from their children."

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report March 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 March 30, 2019.).

Inmate Citizenship:

- México 21,668 inmates, 12.1 percent;
- Colombia 1,633 inmates, 0.9 percent;
- Dominican Republic 1,425 inmates, 0.8 percent;
- Cuba 1,169 inmates, 0.7 percent;
- Other / unknown countries 8,881 inmates, 4.9 percent;
- United States 144,985 inmates, 80.7 percent;

Total Inmates: 179,761 inmates.

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

Combining March 30th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 34,776 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 19.3 percent of the federal prison population.

With 21,668 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 10,826 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.5 percent of the federal prison population.
