Wanting information on the historical immigration status of Rigoberto Manzanares-Hernandez, the “Criminal Alien of the Week Report” on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 contacted via e-mail U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) David Yost. The PAO covers the Northwest region of the country.
On Wednesday, May 26, 2021 ICE Public Affairs Officer Yost responded via e-mail with the following statement on Rigoberto Manzanares-Hernandez:
“Rigoberto Manzanares-Hernandez, 35, is a Mexican national unlawfully present in the United States. He was first encountered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at the Marion County Jail, Salem, Oregon, in October 2008; an immigration detainer was lodged, he was transferred to ICE custody, processed and voluntarily returned to Mexico the following month. Subsequently, Manzanares-Hernandez violated immigration law by unlawfully reentering without admission or parole; he was processed as an expedited removal in December 2008, and as a reinstatement of a prior removal order in June 2011.
Manzanares-Hernandez has multiple convictions including assault, reckless endangerment and driving under the influence in 2011; domestic violence and coercion in 2017; and illegal reentry after removal in 2018. On May 12, the Oregon Department of Corrections (ODOC) transferred custody of Manzanares-Hernandez to ICE; he was processed as a reinstatement of a prior order, and was transferred to the Northwest ICE Processing Center pending removal.” – David Yost, ICE Public Affairs Officer.
ICE continues to use the civil immigration enforcement priorities directed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Jan. 20, to focus its resources on threats to national security, border security and public safety. ICE will continue to carry out the duties of enforcing the laws of the United States to further the safety and security of our communities.
In accordance with the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), illegal re-entry after removal is a federal criminal charge, and violators are subject to imprisonment if convicted. A person who is ordered removed, is physically removed, and thereafter illegally reenters, can be subject to reinstatement of the previous removal order.
Expedited removals occur when a non-U.S. citizen is denied entry into the United States and is physically removed, usually from a U.S. port of entry. Expedited removals carry the same legal consequences as a removal.” – ICE Public Affairs.
Fortunately, for the public safety of the residents of the state, on May 12th the Oregon Department of Corrections’ transferred criminal alien Rigoberto Manzanares-Hernandez to ICE custody.
Criminal alien repeat immigration violator Rigoberto Manzanares-Hernandez was one of 583 Mexican nationals, all of them with immigration detainers, who on April 1, 2021 were incarcerated in the DOC prison system.
