Multnomah Co. Sheriff to Release Illegal Aliens

March 28, 2013


Illegals crossing borderFrom Willamette Week (here) we discover that the Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton plans release low level illegal aliens from jail. This is no doubt to accommodate the Obama Administration –and no doubt the Multnomah County Commissioners. This is wrong on many levels but allow me to give you the chief reason: They’re in the country illegally. Secondly illegal aliens cost the taxpayers millions of dollars per year. They cost us in actual subsidies, they cost us by flouting the laws of the country, they cost us by bringing their kids here and leaving it up to us to buy them an education, and sadly, this population of males commit a disproportionate amount of crime–especially sexual assault.

Custom Enforcement by releasing illegal alien criminals he considers above the law, according to the report below from Willamette Week, a Portland weekly newspaper. What a travesty! Doesn’t a sheriff swear to uphold all laws?

The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area team (HIDTA) in their 2013 report, stated that Multnomah County had the highest number of drug-related deaths state-wide (119) in 2011. Most of that was due to meth, heroin and cocaine brought into Oregon by the Mexican drug cartels — some of the very people that Sheriff Staton is going to send back out into our neighborhoods.

We encourage you to call Sheriff Staton at (503) 988-4300 and/or e-mail him at and tell him what you think of his idea.  If you live in Multnomah County make sure you mention it in your message.

This year we’ve seen the Oregon Legislature pass in-state tuition to illegal aliens, President Obama issue a free pass to illegal aliens under the DACA program and now the Multnomah County Sheriff will hold only selected ones among the many illegal alien law breakers. There is a definite pattern here that you can’t ignore: American citizens are held to the letter of the law and illegal aliens get a free pass. Too many public officials have their priorities backward. The numerous federal and state officials, governor and legislators who rush to give favors to illegal aliens while ignoring the rights and needs of citizens must be replaced. “Throw the bums out!” Elections can’t come too soon; let’s find right-minded candidates and support them when they run for office.

There it is. Now the Sheriff says he won’t uphold the law.  It seems to me that Multnomah County should release one more person from the building. The Sheriff.
