“On Background (To be attributed to ICE Official):
ICE’s mission remains consistent: to identify, arrest and remove aliens who present a danger to national security or are a risk to public safety, as well as those who enter the country illegally or otherwise undermine the integrity of our immigration laws and our border control efforts.
Illegal reentry is a federal criminal charge, and violators may face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
ICE lodges immigration detainers on individuals who have been arrested on criminal charges and who ICE has probable cause to believe are removable aliens. The detainer asks the other law enforcement agency to notify ICE in advance of release and to maintain custody of the alien for a brief period of time so that ICE can take custody of that person in a safe and secure setting upon release from that agency’s custody.” – ICE Public Affairs.
On July 29, 2020 Alfonzo Felipe-Jacinto was still incarcerated at the Marion County Correctional Facility charged with two counts of second degree Robbery and he had ERO immigration detainer issued on him.
If convicted in a Marion County Circuit Court room for two counts of second degree Robbery (two Oregon class B felonies), Alfonzo Felipe-Jacinto could be joining as many as 23 Mexican nationals currently incarcerated for Robbery in the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) prison system.
