Two days later, on Thursday, May 18, 2023 DOC Communications Manager Amber Campbell responded to the “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” in this way:
“Attached is the public information available relating to Carlos Rodriguez-Lanz SID#5869461. House Bill 3265 was passed and signed into law July 19, 2021.

If the Adult In Custody (AIC) is a foreigner or was born outside the United States, DOC is not to place an ICE detainers on the AIC.” – Amber Campbell, DOC Communications Manager.
Included with the DOC Communications Managers’ statement on Carlos Rodriguez-Lanz (SID: 5869461) was an attached Adobe pdf file, an image of a document that appears to have been taken from the Department Corrections, Offender Search, website; the pdf file shows Carlos Rodriguez-Lanz’s date of entrance of 10/03/2022 and estimated date of release of 09/09/2036 from the DOC prison system along with his current criminal convictions of two counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree, two counts of Rape in the First Degree, and one count of Kidnapping in the First Degree that landed him in prison. The sum of Rodriguez-Lanz’s incarceration time in prison equals 167 months and six days.
On Thursday, May 18, 2023 ICE Public Affairs Officer (PAO) David Yost responded via e-mail with the following detailed ICE Public Affairs’ statement on Carlos Rodriguez-Lanz:
“ICE officers make enforcement decisions on a case-by-case basis in a professional and responsible manner, informed by their experience as law enforcement officials and in a way that best protects against the greatest threats to the homeland.
ON BACKGROUND (attributable to an ICE official):
Carlos Rodriguez-Lanz, 62, is a Cuban national who is unlawfully present in the United States. Rodriguez has been encountered by numerous law enforcement entities as well as immigration officials between 1983 and 2018; he has been convicted 32 times for various criminal acts including unlawful possession of narcotics, assault, theft, robbery, burglary, attempt to commit crime, menacing, criminal trespass, and sexual abuse. Rodriguez is currently in the custody of the Oregon Department of Corrections. ERO has lodged a detainer with ODOC should he ever be released from custody. An immigration judge ordered his removal June 3, 1997, but he has never been removed from the U.S.
Information related to recalcitrant countries can be found here: Visa Sanctions Against Multiple Countries Pursuant to Section 243(d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act | ICE.” – David Yost, ICE Public Affairs Officer.
Analysis, eventually the majority hundreds of criminal aliens inmates incarcerated in the Oregon Department of Corrections prison system, including career criminal sex offender Carlos Rodriguez-Lanz, will be released back into the state as the direct result of sanctuary law House Bill 3265 that was sponsored in part by Speaker of the House Tina Kotek, passed by Oregon State Legislature and signed into law by Governor Kate Brown in 2021.
A state anti-federal immigration enforcement law, Oregon House Bill 3265 has literally voided any past cooperative working relationship or agreement DOC prison officials and all the state’s law enforcement agencies had with ICE Enforcement Removal Operations in the safe taking into custody and removal of real dangerous dysfunctional people, like Cuban national felon Carlos Rodriguez-Lanz, from the United States of America.
Additionally problematic for ICE Enforcement Removal Operations is Carlos Rodriguez-Lanz is a citizen of Cuba; the Caribbean nation of Cuba has been by indentified by ICE as a recalcitrant county that may not take back its own criminal citizens.
Lars, the second full week in the month of May 2023 and another “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” for Lars Larson Show KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners and website followers.
