Oregon Prisoner Deportation Process Makes Sense and Saves Money

Most Americans know our current Immigration Policies are broken. We are in need of Immigration Reform. We know our Immigration Courts are severely backlogged. We know we have numerous illegal immigrants in prisons.

Part of the court backlog problem is due to NOT separating the visa overstays and workers from those who commit crimes and are in prison.

Oregon has put in place a plan to immediately deport those in prison who agree to an expedited deportation. This type of program make sense and can be implemented right away, without the passage of a national Immigration bill.

I recommend more states adopt Oregon's program. This goes hand in hand with other solutions including:
1. Focus on Felonious Criminals/Drug Dealers vs Workers
2. Stop Racial Profiling and Latino neighborhood sweeps (ala Arpaio)
3. Offer Volunteer Deportation for those interested

ICE has implemented some of these recommendations in the past with positive results.
Oregon starts moving illegal immigrants out of its prisons
After several months of delay, state and federal officials have reached an agreement to deport illegal immigrants with less than six months left on their sentences out of the state's prisons and into an expedited deportation process. The memorandum of understanding between Oregon and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Immigration & Customs Enforcement means that inmates who waive all rights to contest a deportation will have their sentences commuted and be quickly deported. Six sentences were commuted yesterday after the agreement was signed on Monday, officials from Gov. Ted Kulongoski's office said. The vast majority of the 206 inmates eligible for the early release are from Mexico, state records show. To be eligible for the early release, inmates must be offenders who've not been convicted of any violent, sexual or Measure 11 crimes.

The early deportation program was signed into law last summer in Salem as part of a broad cost-saving corrections package. Lawmakers planned to save $2.1 million by transferring 175 prisoners to federal immigration authorities over the biennium.The state had expected to save $700,000 by Dec. 1 through the early deportation program but a legal glitch in reaching the agreement with the feds held it up. With states across the country strapped by the recession and looking to trim prison costs, the immigration service agreed to work with states across the country to deport criminal offenders before their sentences expire. Several states have deported prisons under the program. Inmates who participate in the program not only waive their rights to challenge a deportation, they face significant federal prison time if they are caught in the United States again illegally.

The Wonderful Fictional Character Jack McCoy ( District Attorney of the "Law and Order" TV Series ) is fighting Racism almost using last Racial Murders

I watched this show, I can not find any information on the Internet about this TV Series Episode.

Marcelo Lucero, an Immigrant was killed in Patchogue, Long Island, New York in November 2008 by Several Coward Scoundrels, the "Caucasian Crew" that enjoyed beating Latinos every week. They cowardly stabbed him after being attacked by many of these thugs.

This is not an isolated case, but there have been many Racial Murders like these. In each case the Coward Criminals allege to be little angels from Heaven.

The show is very realistic calling the Latinos "spics" and "beaners" and showing the sadism, cruelty and bastardy of the killers in full force. The Criminals operate their passtime of killing Latinos in Long Island, New York, as in the Real Events.

But enter the Toughest District Attorney in America, Fictional Character Jack McCoy, he does not care about politics and politicians, and he doesn't respect the prejudices and bigotry of the populace.

In "Law and Order" Jack is very tough against other criminals that kill a Latino and leave another as a vegetal completely unconscious for life, unfortunately the millieu is not like Jack and the Criminals get ridiculous sentences to be commuted. ( as almost always in real life ). You see how things confabulate against Justice.

"Jack" McCoy is a fictional character in the television drama Law & Order, created by Michael Chernuchin and played by Sam Waterston since 1994.

Jack McCoy in Wikipedia - From Wikipedia :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_McCoy

Excerpt :

Jack McCoy brings 24 years of experience with him as he is appointed Executive Assistant District Attorney by Adam Schiff (Steven Hill) in the Season 5 premiere episode "Second Opinion". He quickly establishes himself as a more unconventional, ruthless litigator than his predecessor, Ben Stone (Michael Moriarty); he often bends—and sometimes breaks—trial rules to get convictions, finds impossibly tenuous rationales for charging defendants with crimes when the original charges fail to stick, charges innocent people to frighten them into testifying against others, and makes passionate closing arguments. McCoy is more than once found in contempt of court for such behavior, and his tactics occasionally incur negative publicity for the DA's office. His underlying motivation, however, is not, he maintains, corruption, but a sincere desire to see justice done. To that end, McCoy has gone after defendants accused of perverting the justice system to arrange wrongful convictions with just as much determination as his more mundane cases. Such aggressive actions in the courts have earned him the nickname of "Hang 'em High" McCoy. McCoy has subsequently developed a reputation with both colleagues and rival attorneys, once being referred to as "the top of the legal food chain" by a rival attorney during a case.

My congratulations to the producers and to my hero "Jack McCoy" .... I have been a fan of the show for years. Because I love all things of the Judiciary, Supreme Court, Criminal Law, etc ...

I have studied too many Real Cases of Racial Murder, Young Beautiful Black Ladies are killed by coward criminals at a distance with telescopic rifles.

Luis Ramirez was killed in Shenandoah Pennsylvania by Six Coward Football Players, in July 2008. They are now as free as birds.

There are uncountable murders like that, and very often the criminals receive less punishment than for killing a dog.

Seems to make sense to me considering the budget problems most states have and the fact the prisoners are not considered dangerous.

Final Conclusion about TV Series "Law and Order" and Fictional District Attorney Jack McCoy :

There are many kids in America and around the World watching "Law and Order" and that have Jack McCoy as a hero ( me too ! ) and when they grow up, they will have a better appreciation of District Attorneys and Prosecutors that fight for Justice and against Racist Murder.

Perhaps some of those kids will be inspired to become lawyers and the World will be better for that.

Jack McCoy may have bein inspired by New York District Attorney Robert M. Morgenthau ( yes, the friend and supporter of Sonia Sotomayor )

Please Dee, don't forget Justice Sonia Sotomayor. She fought against Corporations spending without limit in Elections to support their puppet politicians.

Why wouldn't they? They can be back across the border within 24 hours and no one will bother to throw them back in the slammer for the repeat offense. Better to let them work off their sentences working on border infrastructure. They should be fingerprinted, DNAed, photographed and told they will do hard time for at least two years if they return. This is a crazy idea otherwise. It is tantamount to turning criminal loose on the unsuspecting public. They will be back to perpetrate new crimes.

Racists in New York smearing (Fictional) District Attorney "Jack McCoy" for an illegal alien nanny that his divorced wife once employed for a few days.

I finally found very detailed information about the Episode in which the Fictional Detectives of "Law and Order" must fight the Racist Justice System of New York, including Racist Journalists, Racist Juries and Judges, etc ...

This episode refers very closely to the real death of Marcelo Lucero in Patchogue, Long Island, New York in November 2008. Brutal murder of a working man by several Racist Coward Thugs that stabbed him without any provocation. This is not Fiction but Reality, the "Law and Order" episode is very similar to the Real Events that motivated and inspired the writers of the TV Series.

This is not the last time that I will consult, refer and link the "All Things Law and Order" blogspot.

Law & Order “Promote This” Mis-titled But Excellent

http://allthingslawandorder.blogspot.com/2009/04/law-order-promote-this-mis-titled-but.html


Some excerpts of a very long article on the TV Series Episode :

This episode of Law & Order was tagged with the name “Promote This!” but I contend that was only the moniker they gave the episode when NBC moved it up on the schedule. That name clearly doesn’t fit this episode, which covered bigotry, hate crimes, and Jack’s political issues as he runs for re-election as District Attorney.

We got a few tidbits in this episode about Jack's past. One of his wives names was Ellen, and while they were going through their separation in 1991, she unwittingly hired an illegal housekeeper. Clearly, someone is really trying to dig into Jack’s personal life and find any dirt that they can.

I found the evidence in the case very weak, however, and thought that they really didn’t have much to tie the suspects to the actual crime. There seemed to be no real talk about forensics, with the exception of ME Rodgers being able to match the brand mark on both victims. Still, the only thing that they seemed to have on the assault case was the broken glass on the victim and the car. It is no surprise to me that they were found not guilty of all except the assault charge.

But, with the concern over illegals, it was a perfect backdrop for them to bring out Jack’s past problem. He had a rational explanation for it all of course, because we all know that Jack McCoy is the original Teflon Man – nothing sticks. I wonder if/when his drinking will ever come in to play. After all, Jack McCoy probably single handedly accounted for the majority of New York City’s scotch consumption for many years.

At the end of the episode, when Connie wonders if someone tipped off Morales’ mother that additional charges could be filed upon Morales’ death, I wondered if maybe somehow Jack was the one to tip her off, either directly or indirectly. I wouldn’t put it past him.
