Did ICE place an immigration detainer on Alejandro Chavelo-Miranda during time periods he was incarcerated in the Marion County Correctional Facility (MCCF) and in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system?
Did the DOC honor the ICE immigration detainer?
How many times has ICE actually removed Alejandro Chavelo-Miranda from the U.S.?

Has Alejandro Chavelo-Miranda ever previously served time in a federal prison for an immigration crime or violation?
On Thursday, December 19th, ICE Public Affairs Officer Roman sent via e-mail the following response to my preceding questions on Alejandro Chavelo-Miranda:
“Convicted sex offender Alejandro Chavero-Miranda is a citizen of Mexico and a repeat immigration violator. On August 16, 2016, Chavero-Miranda was arrested by Woodburn Police Department for five counts of sexual abuse in the second degree and other local charges.
