Oregon report on illegal immigrants: half repeat sex crime offenders, 83% from Mexico

In a report that has national implications, almost half of the illegal immigrants held in Oregon jails in May faced serious sex crimes including rape, abuse and sodomy. In fact, most are repeat offenders.

Of 969 illegals held in jail for that one month, 461 have been charged with the three sex crimes.

A majority are being held in Portland and Salem area jails, according to the report from immigration expert David Olen Cross, whose report is based on statistics from Oregon’s Department Corrections and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers.

Most, over 83 percent, were from Mexico, according to Cross.

Nationally the number of criminal illegals held on sex crimes clear, but this report suggests it may be high… very high.

The Trump administration has put a focus on deporting criminal illegals.

Last week, the acting director of ICE said the administration is shifting its approach to also targeting those who come across the border illegally. He said it is wrong to let them go and wait for them to commit crimes.

Last July some data pointed to Donald Trump’s assertions on crime associated with illegal immigrants.

The U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics begins with the estimate “that there are some 133,741 foreign criminals in prisons and jails in the USA” for “molesting, raping, killing, maiming and murdering people in America.”

“Add in the 168,680 convicted criminal immigrants who have final orders of removal but who remain at large in the U.S., and another 179,018 convicted criminal aliens with deportation cases pending but who are also at large…,” the article follows, citing reports from ICE.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best; they’re not sending you,” Trump said in his presidential announcement speech regarding illegal immigration. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”

Family Security Matters goes much, much deeper, but keeps validating Trump claims:

  • “The percentage of all federal prisoners who are criminal aliens has remained the same over the last 3 years–about 27 percent.” – GAO data.
  • …according to Jessica M. Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, the 36,007 criminal immigrants that the Obama administration released in 2013 to prowl the streets of America
  • Obama administration released another 30,558 criminal immigrants, who had a total of 79,059 convictions, into America to mingle with its unsuspecting, innocent, law-abiding citizens.
