From Oregonians for Immigration Reform

January 13, 2009

OFIR Members and supporters:

Maurilio Castillo Vega has been convicted of cheating the state government out of at least $8 million in taxes by hiring and paying workers under the table. Vega, an illegal alien, has an ICE hold placed on him at the Marion County Jail.

At a time when the Governor Kulongoski is asking you to pay higher taxes to run state government an illegal alien contractor and the men he hires are cheating the state government out of million of dollars in taxes. Unfortunately this is just the tip of the iceberg. In a report done by Bear Sterns,(The underground labor force is rising to the surface), they estimated that 5 million illegal aliens are paid in cash, cheating the federal government out of $35 billion a year in taxes.

This is another reason why the state legislature needs to pass a bill requiring all companies in Oregon sign up for the E-Verify program.

American citizens should not have to compete with illegal aliens for jobs. American companies should not have to compete for business with companies that cheat by hiring illegal aliens.

We're not here because we want to take away jobs or what you think is yours. Ask your ancestors where you came from and you'll find out that you are a desendent from immigrants. On the other hand we're just taking back what some stupid president from Mexico gave away to the US. I know we're here to stay in the land that once was Mexico. Look around!!!!

Fact: The western third of the US was inhabited by many Indian tribes.
Fact: The Spanish conquered the Indians and took the land from the Indians
Fact: The Mexicans conquered the Spanish and took the land from the Spanish
Fact: The Mexicans were in possession of the land for less than 30 years with very few Mexicans living on it..
Fact: The US conquered the Mexicans and bought the land for $15 million
Fact: The Mexicans took the land from the Spanish and sold the land to the US.
Fact: Mexico lost. And they are very poor losers.

The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Program released it’s annual threat report last year. They stated in the report that the direct cost of the illicit drug trade to Oregon is about $3 billion a year. It is of course impossible to calculate the human cost to Oregon’s children brought on by the illicit drug trade:

“Portland cops bust Mexican drug ring operating in Old Town, Northwest
by Maxine Bernstein, The Oregonian
Thursday February 19, 2009, 1:38 PM

Portland narcotics investigators say they've disrupted a Mexican drug ring that was operating in Woodburn and sending drug runners to Northwest Portland and Old Town to sell heroin and cocaine.

Complaints from Central Precinct officers about the drug activity led to the four-month Drugs and Vice Division investigation. On Wednesday, officers seized three pounds of heroin and two pounds of cocaine, and made eight arrests after raiding three homes and a storage facility in the Woodburn and Clackamas areas.

"We have all kind of information out there, reporting to us that they're getting calls from uptight heroin junkies. From that perspective, we've made a dent in the trade," said Drugs and Vice Division Capt. Mark Kruger.

But Kruger said he recognizes that others will fill the void if police don't keep attention on the area. "It will make a dent temporarily."

Police arrested Jose Sandodal-Gonzalez, 32, on numerous drug charges in Woodburn and identified him as the main supplier. Seven others arrested were described as his "runners," meaning they'd carry the drug to Portland after a user phoned them to arrange a buy.

Remarkably, the drug dealers seemed to keep "banker's hours," Kruger said, adding that they typically started business around 8 a.m., and continued until late in the afternoon before halting until the next day.

"This particular group is more call-up and deliver," Kruger said. "We call it the pizza delivery mode. The drug user calls up the source, and the runner comes and delivers the drugs."

In less than one week, Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers have made a significant seizure of suspected cocaine during a traffic stop. The latest traffic stop Thursday afternoon on Interstate 5 north of Woodburn led to the arrest of three men and the seizure of approximately 51 lbs. of suspected cocaine.

On February 26, 2009 at approximately 4:00 p.m. an OSP trooper stopped a rented silver Mazda passenger car northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 275 for failing to maintain a lane of travel and suspicion of DUII. The car was occupied by three men identified as driver JOEL LUCIAN RUELAS-CASTRO, age 31, from Mexico; passenger MANUEL ALBERTO CASTRO LUGO, age 38, from Mexico; and, RIGO HUMBERTO LAMAS-PONCE (aka: Ivan Santiago-Mendes), age 29, from southeast Portland.

Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop led to the discovery of approximately 51 lbs. of suspected cocaine with an estimated value of about $700,000. An OSP drug detection canine assisted during the stop.

All three men were taken into custody by OSP troopers and lodged in Marion County Jail on the following charges:

JOEL LUCIAN RUELAS-CASTRO
* Unlawful Possession, Distribution, and Manufacturing a Controlled Substance – Cocaine

MANUEL ALBERTO CASTRO LUGO
* Unlawful Possession, Distribution, and Manufacturing a Controlled Substance – Cocaine

RIGO HUMBERTO LAMAS-PONCE
* Unlawful Possession, Distribution, and Manufacturing a Controlled Substance – Cocaine
* Warrant (Multnomah County)– Unlawful Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance – Methamphetamine
* Warrant (Multnomah County)– Driving While Suspended

Marion County Jail records indicate all three men have INS holds.

The investigation is being continued by detectives assigned to the OSP Drug Enforcement Section.

This arrest was unrelated to last Friday's traffic stop and subsequent arrest of two individuals on Interstate 5 about two miles south of Canyonville after discovering approximately 31 lbs. of cocaine concealed in their vehicle.

Yep the racists are still out in force in disgusting Oregon. Oregon is still disgusting and will remain so for the duration. It is the worst state in the union and threatening to descend to the other depths of depravity.

While civilized people consider the impact of the worsening economy on immigration in general, Oregonian racists and gutter dwellers focus on using general thuggery to beat up on the less fortune. That is typical redneck Oregonian nonsense.

Unfortunately it is all too typical which is why Oregon has a 10% unemployment rate that is threatening to get much, much worse. So sad. Too bad.

Couldn't happen to more deserving people ROTFLMAO.

A Portland, Oregon, Police officer is accused of using his uniform to intimidate an autistic woman into having sex. Jason Faulk has been on the force ten years.

According to the 28-year-old autistic woman's attorney, Faulk showed up at her home after she called police about her son last June. The woman said Faulk kept returning to the home at night and had sex with the woman once in July and again in August.

The lawyer says officer Faulk was always in uniform and the woman felt she had no choice. The attorney said surveillance video at a local drug store caught the officer buying the morning after pill for the woman.

Faulk has been on leave since September. On Wednesday, a grand jury will decide on possible charges in the case.(11/6/2007)(KGW-TV)

Oregon city to settle skirt-lifting incident for $100k

They said he told them if they didn't show him their underwear, he would arrest the driver for driving under the influence.

Wood pleaded guilty to two counts of official misconduct in 2006 and resigned...
