ICE, ICE, Bebe (January 13) Immigrations and Customs Enforcement managed to deport a foreign criminal, somehow:
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Federal officials have deported a man convicted of attempted murder in Salem.
Abel Rojas-Hernandez, 57, was convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison in 1996. Details about the decades-old crime were not immediately available.
Rojas-Hernandez was released from Oregon Department of Corrections custody in November 2020 and has been held at the Northwest ICE Processing Center in Tacoma ever since, authorities said.
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents transferred Rojas-Hernandez to the custody of Mexican authorities on Tuesday, officials said.
The Tacoma Washington ICE office is the same attacked by an overaged antifa gunman in August 2019 before before he was gunned down in what was an apparent suicide mission. He left a note
“I regret that I will miss the rest of the revolution. Doing what I can to help defend my precious and wondrous people is an experience too rich to describe. I am Antifa.”
A year and a half ago many probably scoffed at the idea this man was part of a genuine “revolution”.
Last month, Multnomah County Deborah Kafoury pressed Oregon Gov. Kate Brown to prioritize vaccinating people in prisons and jails.
Prisons and jails throughout the state and country have been centers of some of the largest COVID-19 outbreaks. And Kafoury made a moral and practical case for prioritizing a population that won’t win any popularity contests with the public.
“We were heartened by a state process you have described as being centered in an ‘equitable system challenging the roles of power, privilege and racism,”” Chair Deborah Kafoury wrote on Dec. 22 in a letter to Brown, obtained this week by WW. “So we are frankly alarmed and dismayed that the actual allocation prioritization as described omits people in our communities who have experienced the most disproportionate rates of infection and death and who deal with long-standing inequities in health care and health access. Among the most egregious examples: a prioritization that brings law enforcement to the forefront, but not those in law enforcement custody whose infection rates nationally are up to four times the general population.”
On January 17, 2021, at approximately 3:38 a.m., officers from the East Precinct responded to a call of a shooting in the 14300 block of Southeast Division Street. Upon their arrival, officers found two victims who were deceased.
Detectives from the Homicide Division are on scene and investigating. Cause and manner of death will be determined by the Oregon State Medical Examiner at a later time and date. Additional information will be released at the direction of the investigators.
The PIO [Public Information Officer] is not responding to the scene.
