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 880 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($95,268.80) per day, ($666,881.60) per week, and ($34,773,112.00) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 880 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

After ICE Raids, US Citizens Flock To Jobs

Less than one week after ICE raided 7 food processing facilities in Mississippi apprehending nearly 700 illegal workers, American citizens are rushing to freshly-available jobs.

Koch Foods is headquartered in Chicago but maintains a chicken processing facility in Mississippi that employed 243 of the 680 undocumented Latino workers arrested in the raids last Thursday. Koch has since collaborated with the Mississippi Department of Employment Security (MDES), holding a job fair to recruit new, legal, workers, according to the Associated Press.

The fair raked in 200 applications before noon, according to local media. The company says it will require applicants to present two forms of identification before being hired, according to CNN. MDES will also vet all Mississippi workers for legality using the state’s E-Verify system, according to USA Today.

A Koch spokesman did not directly correlate the job fair with the raids. Instead he told the AP that holding job fairs is routine for the chicken processing plant, especially given America’s strong current economy. (RELATED: CNN’s Tapper: Is Trump Not Getting Enough Credit For The Economy?)

Job fairs “are part of normal efforts to employ,” Gilliand told AP. “In this environment of relative full employment, most businesses are looking for qualified applicants; Koch is no different.”

Dianne Bell of the Mississippi Department of Employment Security was involved in coordinating the job fair. She says that the immigration raid and Koch’s interest in recruitment of new legal workers went hand in hand.

“They reached out to us the very same day [as the raids],” Bell told USA Today, speaking on the collaborative recruitment effort between Koch and the MDES.

Those who are now seeking employment in the raided facilities cite high wages and frequent pay as reasons to take the exhausting job of a food processing worker, according to USA Today.

Last week’s ICE raids are “believed to be the largest single-state immigration enforcement operation in our nation’s history,” says to US Attorney for the Southern District Mike Hurst, according to CNN.

Many media outlets and commentators are attributing the raids to the Trump Administration or a racist agenda. However, acting ICE director Matt Albence maintained that immigration laws “are not new laws, nor is the enforcement of them new,” according to CNN.

Following political attacks, Gwinnett Sheriff, others speak out in support of D.A. King

After a week of being attacked by several of Gwinnett’s elected officials, Dustin Inman Society President D.A. King is speaking out, alongside others who have defended the 67-year-old.

King, who founded the Dustin Inman Society in 2005, became the subject of local political attacks after the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office invited him to speak about the benefits of the jail’s 287(g) immigration program at a July 31 community meeting hosted by District 4 Commissioner Marlene Fosque.

While the meeting was intended as a forum to share information and differing perspectives about 287(g), the discussion turned into “unfair and unwarranted name-calling and misleading innuendo,” Gwinnett Sheriff Butch Conway wrote in a letter to the Daily Post.

King, who was the subject of that name-calling, has continued to come under attack in recent days — on Tuesday, Fosque accused him of “spewing hatred and bigotry and racism” — for his work related to the Dustin Inman Society, an organization named after 16-year-old Dustin Inman, who was killed in a car crash by a man who was in the country illegally. King describes the organization as “pro-enforcement on immigration.”

“The Dustin Inman Society is dedicated to educating the public and our elected officials on the consequences of illegal immigration, our unsecured borders and the breakdown of the rule of law in our Republic,” the organization’s website says...

King said his intent at last week’s meeting was to talk about 287(g), and “lend (his) experienced knowledge on how to respond to the far-left race-baiting anti-enforcement lobby that is funded by corporate-America.”

While he says he did that — Conway said King “showed professionalism and restraint during the meeting” — King says others strayed, at times...

“It should be noted that after being instructed to stick with the topic of 287(g), it was a campaigning (District 99 State Rep.) Brenda Lopez Romero who felt the need to present false ad hominem, personal attacks on me because she has no rational argument for not using every available tool to reduce crime in Gwinnett, including 287(g),” King told the Daily Post. “The goal (of) the illegal alien lobby, which includes the cowardly groups that dropped out and the three anti-enforcement substitute panelists, was never to argue on 287(g) — it was to marginalize anyone who supports the program.”

King said while he has received the brunt of that marginalization, the political attacks — and the Southern Poverty Law Center labeling the Dustin Inman Society as a “hate group” — have affected others, too.

“In its effort to fabricate and pass on ‘anti-immigrant hate’ smears aimed at the Dustin Inman Society, the discredited (Southern Poverty Law Center), congressional candidate Brenda Lopez Romero and Commissioner Marlene Fosque are not only attacking my character, but also smearing the reputations of immigrant, African-American and Hispanic (Dustin Inman Society) board members,” King said. “Kathy Inman, Dustin’s mom, is also a board member ... The deliberate lies presented in the SPLC smear and passed on by Lopez Romero, Fosque and the anti-enforcement lobby also smear Kathy Inman.”

Dustin Inman Society board member Mary Grabar, who immigrated to the U.S. from Slovenia, said she was dismayed by the attacks on King and the Dustin Inman Society.

“The Dustin Inman Society’s sole purpose is to uphold the law; in our case, immigration law,” Grabar told the Daily Post. “As a legal immigrant ... I have an especial appreciation for immigrants who come here legally. I saw what my parents and relatives had to do to get here and make a home.”

Grabar continued, calling King a “man of honor.”

“He is an indefatigable champion of the law and order that is necessary to preserve our precious freedoms,” Grabar said. ...

Everett Robinson, who also serves as a board member for the Dustin Inman Society, echoed Grabar, saying he doesn’t know a man “less deserving of the hateful names (King) is being called” — which include being labeled in a petition by Duluth City Councilman Kirkland Carden last week as a “white nationalist and anti-immigration activist.”

“I watched as (King) spent a great deal of time and his own money in 2004 to organize the Dustin Inman Society and have also watched as his good work has resulted in laws in Georgia to address the crime of illegal immigration,” Robinson said. “Our neighborhood is home to many immigrants. D.A. doesn’t hate anyone and we both agree that confusing illegal aliens with real immigrants is an intentional injustice....

King said being labeled as “anti-immigrant” is a tool “the desperate and dishonest anti-borders crowd” uses to “confuse people, including lazy reporters and editors, about immigrants and illegal aliens.”

“While we hope that the immigration system is changed to insure that legal immigration benefits America and American workers, we are anti-illegal immigration — more easily framed as ‘pro-enforcement,’” King said. “Nobody at (Dustin Inman Society), including the immigrants, are ‘anti-immigrant.’”

For his part, Conway said the sheriff’s office asked King to serve as a panelist at the 287(g) meeting because of his “thorough understanding and support of the 287(g) program, along with his experience in helping create immigration laws in Georgia.”

“I’ve known D.A. King for years as a passionate advocate whose life’s work is raising awareness of the importance of immigration enforcement,” Conway said. “Mr. King has worked extensively with Georgia legislators over a period of many years to help create immigration laws in Georgia and has been featured in numerous mainstream media publications over the years, including a front-page profile in the New York Times. I consider D.A. King a personal friend and appreciate his support of the 287(g) program and his willingness to assist us in our efforts to educate the public about the importance of this program to our community.”

 

Gov. Brown betrays voters’ mandate, signs HB 2015

Today, Oregonians for Immigration Reform expressed anger and disappointment at Gov. Kate Brown's signing, on August 9, 2019, of House Bill 2015, which will provide Oregon driver licenses to illegal aliens.

"In 2014, our group spearheaded the ballot measure via which Oregonians, by a two-to-one margin, rejected the 2013  Legislature's approval of 'driver cards' for foreigners here illegally," said OFIR president Cynthia Kendoll.  "Yesterday, when she signed House Bill 2015, Gov. Brown told those Oregonians what their vote meant to her and to her accomplices in the Legislature: absolutely nothing."

Rather than honor the clearly-expressed mandate of those they were elected to serve, Kendoll continued, "our governor and Legislature chose to undermine U.S. laws against illegal entry and, instead, reward foreigners who have broken into our nation."

Illegal aliens, said OFIR communications director Jim Ludwick, "steal jobs from Oregonians, particularly from racial minorities and young people just beginning their working lives.  As well, the state and local government services they consume cost Oregonians more than $1 billion a year."

And, continued Ludwick, "more than 900 foreign nationals with federal immigration detainers -- the vast majority of them here illegally -- are inmates in our state prisons.  Most of them have committed violent crimes against innocent Oregonians."

After all this, concluded Ludwick, "what do our governor and Legislature do?  Pass a law to give illegal aliens driver licenses and, thereby, to encourage even more of them to come to our state."

In the history of Oregon politics, Kendoll noted, "one would be hard-pressed to find an instance where lawmakers more starkly betrayed both their constituents' best interests and clearly-expressed will."

Oregonians for Immigration Reform, founded in 2000, is a grassroots citizens' organization that advocates for an end to illegal immigration and a reduction in legal immigration.  OFIR and its thousands of members and supporters have qualified two measures for Oregon's statewide ballot: 2014's Measure 88, mentioned above, and 2018's Measure 105, which sought to repeal Oregon's illegal-alien sanctuary law (ORS 181.820A).
