110,000+ Oregonians Help Make The Arc Of History Bend Toward Immigration Sanity

Last Thursday and Friday, July 5th and 6th, the stalwarts of Oregonians for Immigration Reform [OFIR] submitted to their Secretary of State more than 110,000 signatures from registered voters. Their aim: Qualify for November's ballot an initiative IP 22 that would allow voters to repeal Oregon's statewide sanctuary policy that heavily restricts cooperation between Oregon law enforcement and the federal immigration agencies. (In late May, I reported on their efforts here.)

As the number of signatures required was 88,184, OFIR has likely succeeded in the signature-gathering phase of their herculean task and must now embark on "making the sale" on IP 22 to all of the state's voters. But the OFIR-ites won't be certain of this first-step success until the Secretary of State has confirmed that enough of the signatures gathered are valid.

On July 8th, I spoke by phone with OFIR Communications Director (and founding President) Jim Ludwick, whom I have known for several years. Jim, who is also a veteran of OFIR's triumphant 2013 - 2014 "NO on 88" citizens'-veto campaign to nullify driver's cards for illegal aliens, was most impressed with the urgency many of his late-responding fellow citizens exhibited over getting their signatures in by the July 6th deadline. "On the steps at the state capitol Friday we had state employees come out to us to sign. We had truck drivers who were servicing the building sign. We had state police sign," he said. "There were people driving 60 miles each way to drop off one-line signature sheets."

"I wish everyone could see how frantic some registered voters were to get their signatures counted so that IP 22 will get on the ballot," Jim added. "There's a sense that ordinary folks are beginning to grasp what the future will be if we don't push back effectively. They know this country is at a tipping point. A lot of these people have been sitting on the sidelines, intimidated about being called 'racist.' The usual ..."

Indeed, there was active intimidation that affected how voters' signatures were obtained. Jim explained that more than 100,000 of the signatures OFIR collected were gathered by volunteers with clipboards or by people downloading single-signature petition forms from the web and mailing them in (or making a last-minute drive to the capitol in Salem!). Meanwhile, fewer than 10,000 signatures resulted from the work of paid signature-collectors because, Jim explained, the best venue for that activity is metro Portland, "where it became exceedingly nasty to collect signatures, especially for women."

Jim is quite optimistic that the 110,445 signatures OFIR submitted will yield the needed 88,184 valid signatures. That would require an 80-percent validity rate, well below the 93-percent validity rate OFIR achieved in the signature-gathering stage of 2014's "NO on 88" campaign. Nevertheless, he and the others in OFIR's battle-tested crew must wait, nervously, to hear from Secretary of State Dennis Richardson.

It's fortunate that they're battle-tested, as Jim expects that "The other side is about to pull out every dirty trick in the book." The dirty tricks will presumably be the work of "Oregonians united against profiling," an umbrella organization established on July 6th, according to an email forwarded to me. With their name presumably also announcing their approach, we can expect a campaign of distortion along the lines of that in 2010 associated with Arizona's SB 1070 law of phony "Papers, please!"-hysteria fame.

It's hard to conjure a nexus between racial profiling and anti-sanctuary policies, so "Ouap" already looks like it's grasping at straws—on their "Get the Facts" page, they trot out this indictment of OFIR and of the Federation for American Immigration Reform:

The groups behind the effort to throw out Oregon’s existing Sanctuary law are Oregonians for Immigration Reform (OFIR) and the Federation of Immigration Reform (FAIR). Both groups have been designated extremist hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Going to the link they provide lands you on a typical SPLC point-and-splutter page.

Meanwhile, assuming the signature-gathering campaign has succeeded, IP 22 will apparently be the only statewide immigration-related ballot measure in the country this fall. Immigration patriots nationwide can keep tabs on the campaign via the OFIR website and the related Stop Oregon Sanctuaries website.

Oregon Anti-Sanctuary City Advocates Face Lawfare, Threats, Physical Intimidation

A group gathering signatures to repeal the Oregon law that makes the state a defacto sanctuary for illegal aliens has faced legal action, threats, and harassment of its signature gatherers. The group, Oregonians for Immigration Reform (OFIR), has also been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
 
One volunteer signature gatherer told PJ Media that she faced verbal harassment and physical intimidation while attempting to get folks to sign the petition:
 
She claimed that our petition was dividing America. Putting fear in Hispanics. She called me a racist, lectured me for some time about how she wanted me to stop what I was doing, we were racists because we were all white, and hateful, and unwanted by society. I told her that many people who had immigrated here legally were our biggest supporters. She said she couldn't imagine anyone even wanting to support and associate with us.
 
In addition, she says opponents physically blocked her when people approached her to sign the petition.
 
Now, in an apparently frivolous legal matter, the University of Oregon has issued a cease and desist order for alleged copyright infringement. The cease and desist letter threatens legal action if OFIR fails to stop using the Oregonians for Immigration Reform "O" (with the tree inside) because the University of Oregon’s lawyers says they received evidence from Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán (MEChA), a radical University of Oregon student group, that claims it is too similar to the University of Oregon's "O," essentially trying to halt its signature-gathering campaign.
 
OFIR states that it has had the same logo since 2000, and the only person or entity to complain in 18 years has been MEChA. Notably, MEChA appears to be using trademark law to stifle political opponents by stating that they don’t like the politics of OFIR and urging the U of O to take action against the group.
 
The ballot initiative, IP 22, has three Republican state legislators as chief sponsors: Mike Nearman, Sal Esquivel, and Greg Barreto. A spokesman for OFIR would not say how many signatures they have collected so far, but expressed confidence that they are on target to submit a significant number by the deadline of July 6....
 
Note that the change to the statute would simply allow Oregon state agencies to comply with federal immigration law.
 
For this, everyone involved has been branded a racist, white supremacist, and even a member of a hate group – as defined by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
 
Previous failures to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have led to disastrous consequences for Oregon residents, like the rape victim in a nice neighborhood of Portland in 2017....

Tax And Anti-Immigration Measures See Movement As Filing Deadline Nears

... Supporters of a controversial initiative to repeal Oregon’s sanctuary law appeared closer to qualifying for the November ballot.

Oregonians For Immigration Reform turned in 105,000 signatures, according to the group’s president, Cynthia Kendoll. She said backers are also urging petitioners to bring additional signatures to the state Capitol on Friday morning to try to pad their margin.
 
The group needs 88,184 valid signatures from registered voters to qualify for the ballot. That gives them a current margin of error of 19 percent, which might not be enough.
 
“I will feel good when we are approved,” Kendoll said. “I’m a worry-wart.”
 
The measure could attract national attention. President Donald Trump has railed against local and state sanctuary laws that limit how much local law enforcement can cooperate with federal immigration authorities....

Honesty, patriotism define Oregon's sanctuary repeal effort

“In life you need either inspiration or desperation,” declares self-help guru Tony Robbins.
 
Bereft of the former, the liberal group Our Oregon has embraced the latter.
 
For the past year, Oregonians for Immigration Reform, a group that advocates policies to stem illegal immigration, has worked to qualify a measure for the November ballot that will enable voters to repeal Oregon Revised Statute 181A.820, the state’s illegal-immigrant sanctuary law. Our Oregon has sought to demonize OFIR’s effort by tarring the thoroughly mainstream organization as a “white supremacist hate group.”
 
The backbone of OFIR’s campaign has been the scores of volunteers who have circulated the petition and worked to gather the 88,000 signatures needed to certify the measure for the ballot. Those volunteers, of whom I am one, are motivated not by “hate” but by patriotism — and by the knowledge that Americans of all races benefit from laws that work to ensure an orderly influx of immigrants to our country. Tens of thousands of rank-and-file Oregonians have been excited to sign the petition and lend their names and support to sanctuary repeal.
 
To supplement the volunteers’ work, last year the campaign contracted with a company that employs paid signature gatherers — a small minority of whom, as the Herald and News reported in a recent story (“Investigation targets ‘sanctuary state’ repeal effort,” June 2), may have sought to misrepresent the measure as protecting, not repealing, the sanctuary law.
 
Lee Vasche, the company’s owner, “acknowledged complaints about misrepresentation in general,” the story reported. “Most were the fault of one signature gatherer, Vasche said, adding the company fired two other circulators and destroyed about 400 signatures” that may have been obtained under false pretenses.
 
But Our Oregon now suggests, with no evidence whatever, that Vasche may have known and approved of efforts to misrepresent the measure. Indeed, argues a complaint the group submitted to the state Department of Justice, “it is difficult to imagine a scenario” in which this was not the case.
 
This is baseless conjecture. Many ballot-measure campaigns employ paid signature gatherers. Those employees work on their own absent close supervision. The great majority are scrupulous to represent their measures fairly and accurately. A very few, however, are not. Their indiscretions do not reflect on the veracity of their employers or negate the value of the campaigns with which they are or have been associated.
 
I have worked with Lee Vasche since 2009, when I joined him on OFIR’s board of directors. He has long been one of Oregon’s premier political-marketing professionals. His integrity is beyond reproach. For Our Oregon to allege he was complicit in a strategy to deceive voters besmirches the reputation of an honest man. And it reveals the desperate measures to which the group will resort to keep sanctuary repeal off November’s ballot.
 
As for the measure itself? Oregon’s sanctuary statute forbids Oregon’s police departments and sheriff’s offices to use their resources to detect and apprehend reputedly “noncriminal” illegal immigrants. In doing so, it helps illegal immigrants escape the consequences of their lawbreaking — and encourages even more of them to come here.
 
Repealing the statute would free our police and sheriffs to take the initiative to help enforce immigration law. And it would send the clear message that lawbreakers of any kind will not get a free pass in Oregon’s communities.
 
To help get sanctuary repeal onto the ballot, interested voters should print a single-signature petition (available at StopOregonSanctuaries.org), sign it, and mail it to the campaign’s headquarters by July 2.

Oregon group says immigration laws must be enforced

ALBANY, Ore. – While many are calling for changes in how illegal immigrants are being treated as they cross the border, others in more rural parts of Oregon disagree. Several people in Albany, said people need to come into the United States legally and that current immigration laws should be enforced.

"I'm sad about the protests,” explained Judy, who asked KGW to only use her first name. “I'm all for immigration, but I want it to be legal and I think that we have laws on the books that need to be enforced.”

“My great grandparents were immigrants, they came through Ellis Island from Italy, and even back then they had rules that they had to follow and I think legal immigration is what we need,” said Kathy, who also asked she only be identified by her first name.

A group called Oregonians for Immigration Reform echoed that sentiment.

"We're seeing right now this big hub bub about the issue of children being separated from their parents when they cross the border illegally, well, any time somebody breaks the law and they're incarcerated, they're always separated from their children,” said Jim Ludwick, a spokesman for Oregonians for Immigration Reform.

The group is also currently collecting signatures to get a measure on the ballot to repeal Oregon’s sanctuary state status.

“We feel we're on the path to collecting enough signatures,” Ludwick said. “We've got to get a little over 88,000. We think we're going to qualify and we are convinced if we qualify to get this on the ballot, we will prevail.”

The group would not say how many signatures it has collected so far, but believes it will be able to get enough to put Oregon’s sanctuary state status in the hands of voters.

Guest column: Voters should repeal Oregon sanctuary law

Should Oregon law provide sanctuary to illegal immigrants? This year, voters may get the chance to decide.
 
Activists affiliated with Oregonians for Immigration Reform are collecting signatures to seek to qualify a measure for the November ballot that would enable voters to repeal Oregon Revised Statute 181A.820. That law prohibits state and local law enforcement agencies from working to detect and apprehend “persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.”
 
To begin, let’s clarify: If voters were to repeal ORS 181A.820, Oregon’s police departments and sheriff’s offices would not be required to help U.S. authorities enforce immigration law. Repeal would enable them, instead, to choose to detect and detain illegal immigrants on the basis of their illegal entry or visa overstay and to relinquish them to federal agents for removal from the country.
 
Is this a legitimate role for local law enforcement? In United States v. Vasquez-Alvarez (1999), the 10th Circuit Court recognized a “pre-existing general authority of state or local police officers to investigate and make arrests for violations of federal law, including immigration laws.” And in Arizona v. United States (2012), the U.S. Supreme Court held that local law enforcement officers may seek to determine the immigration status of someone they stop, detain or arrest if they have a clearly defined “reasonable suspicion” that the person is an illegal immigrant.
 
Suppose, after a repeal of ORS 181A.820, that many police and sheriffs chose to exercise their new power and that, as a result, the number of illegal immigrants in Oregon fell. What would be the practical effect of this on rank-and-file Oregonians?
 
On a routine basis, illegal immigration is precursory to other crimes — crimes that can impact Oregonians profoundly. “Virtually all adult illegal aliens commit felonies in order to procure the documents they need to get jobs, to drive and to obtain other benefits,” writes Ronald Mortensen, a fellow with the Center for Immigration Studies. Indeed, notes Mortensen, “the Social Security Administration and New York Times report that approximately 75 percent of illegal aliens have fraudulently obtained Social Security numbers.”
 
The U.S. Treasury Department’s Inspector General for Tax Administration, CNS News’ Terence Jeffrey reports, that between 2011 and 2016 there were “more than 1.3 million cases of identity theft perpetrated by illegal aliens … ineligible to work in the United States.”
 
A recent study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform found that the percentage of illegal immigrants incarcerated by states and localities is some 50 percent higher than the percentage of native-born Americans incarcerated. That’s borne out in Oregon, where illegal immigrants are estimated to comprise some 4 percent of the state’s population but, last month, accounted for 6.5 percent of the state prison population. Of those illegal-immigrant inmates, more than three-quarters were serving time for homicide, assault, robbery, kidnapping, rape, sodomy and sex abuse.
 
Illegal-immigrant crime wreaks havoc on too many law-abiding Oregonians. For voters to repeal the state’s sanctuary law — and give our law enforcement agencies the freedom to detect, apprehend and help remove illegal immigrants on the basis of immigration law violations alone — would be a major step toward a safer Oregon.

University Of Oregon Attacks OFIR

UNIVERSITY OF OREGON'S TRADEMARK-INFRINGEMENT LAWSUIT THREAT FRIVOLOUS, POSSIBLY POLITICALLY MOTIVATED,  ALLEGES OREGONIANS FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM

Oregonians for Immigration Reform, the state's largest group advocating for immigration reductions, today condemned the University of Oregon for threatening to sue the group for trademark infringement.

"Last week, the University of Oregon notified OFIR that it would sue if our group did not immediately stop using the letter 'O,' with a depiction of a fir tree inside it, as part of our logo," said Cynthia Kendoll, OFIR's president.  "Our 'O,' the university claims, too closely resembles the 'O' it uses as its own logo."  Images of both logos appear at the end of this release.

"This is ridiculous," continued Kendoll.  "The 'O' in our logo and in the university's are in different fonts.  Our 'O,' unlike the university's, features a graphic inside.

"How, on the mere basis of a capital 'O' in both our logos, could any reasonable person confuse OFIR with the University of Oregon -- or believe the institutions are affiliated?  Does the university really believe it has the right to trademark a letter of the alphabet?

"Most importantly, do Oregonians want the state's flagship institution of higher learning to use their hard-earned tax money to bully an all-volunteer citizens' group over such a trivial matter?"

OFIR communications director Jim Ludwick suggested that politics, not trademark infringement, may be the real reason the university issued its lawsuit threat.

"In its cease-and-desist letter to OFIR, the university mentioned as one reason for its action the Southern Poverty Law Center's recent classification of OFIR as a 'hate' group," said Ludwick.  "But if the university had conducted even a cursory examination of the SPLC's tactics, it would have found the outfit exists mainly to smear patriotic Americans as 'racists' and 'xenophobes.'  Even mainstream liberals agree the SPLC inhabits the left-wing fringe.  If the university's lawsuit threat was truly about trademark infringement, why would its letter to us have mentioned the SPLC?"

In 2014, Ludwick noted, OFIR activists referred a measure to the statewide ballot via which Oregonians rejected illegal-alien driving privileges by a two-to-one margin.  This year, he continued, the group is collecting voters' signatures in an effort to qualify yet another measure -- to repeal the state's illegal-alien sanctuary law -- for this November's ballot.  "Given our record of success fighting illegal immigration in the political realm," asked Ludwick, "might the real reason for the university's action be to distract OFIR's attention from its ballot-measure campaign -- and thereby to chill a volunteer group's effort to influence public policy via direct democracy?"

"If so," concluded Ludwick, "it won't work.  We'll continue our fight against illegal immigration.  We'll get our measure onto the ballot.  And we'll continue to use the logo we use today."

Oregonians for Immigration Reform, founded in 2000, undertakes public-policy action to cut the excessive levels of legal immigration and end illegal immigration.

Ajo Agents Arrest Illegal Alien Convicted of Rape and Assault

TUCSON, Ariz. – Border Patrol agents assigned to the Ajo Station arrested a Mexican man Sunday morning with a conviction for rape and assault in Marion County, Oregon in 2012.

Agents patrolling in Lukeville, Arizona, arrested five men illegally present in the United States. During processing, agents conducted a records check on 31-year-old Pascual Nava-Gutierrez, which revealed his earlier conviction of rape in the 3rd degree and assault in the 4th degree.

Nava will remain in federal custody pending prosecution for criminal immigration violations involving re-entry of an aggravated felon.

All persons apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure illegal immigrants with criminal histories are positively identified.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
