Will Racke reports at the Daily Caller:
The man suspected of killing an Oregon couple in a high-speed drunk driving collision earlier in August is an illegal immigrant from Mexico, The Daily Caller News Foundation learned.
Eduardo de la Lima Vargas, 39, allegedly ran a red light on a state highway in Salem, Oregon, on Aug. 19, striking a motorcycle being driven by Logan Wilson, 34, and his wife Jessi, 32. The collision tossed the Wilsons from the motorcycle, fatally injuring both.
Research by Salem-based David Olen Cross shows that "about three-quarters of all criminal aliens in Oregon's prison system are serving time for what the FBI defines as violent crimes -- murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault -- or sex crimes under the Oregon criminal code," the DC reports.
"Of the 943 Oregon state prison inmates with active ICE detainers as of July, 731 -- 77 percent -- have been convicted of those violent crimes or sex offenses, according to Cross's latest report," the DC reports. "That compares to about 60 percent of 'domestic' inmates who were convicted of the same offenses."
Oregon is "one of the nation's most active states when it comes to limiting cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities," according to the DC.
Comment: The crime rate for illegal aliens ought to be zero. Illegal aliens should not be in the U.S. to commit violent crimes and sex crimes in the first place.
An individual not in the U.S. clearly cannot therefore commit murder, manslaughter, rape, or any other number of violent and/or sexual offenses in the U.S.
Open borders is an attack on American people. Those who espouse open borders are allowing a social cancer into the American body politic. Even a smidgeon can kill you or members of your family.
