Juan Carlos Solis
A 24-year-old Mexican charged with the Oregon murder of a father and the shooting of his 16-year-old son in a home-invasion robbery is an illegal alien with an Oregon driver's license who has been previously deported from the United States.
Juan Carlos Solis is awaiting trial on 41 counts of aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder, attempted murder, assault in the first degree, robbery in the first degree, robbery in the second degree and burglary in the first degree, along with at least three other suspects in the July 2004 home-invasion robbery of 12 farm workers.
Solis and the other suspects are facing trial for the shooting death of Paco Chavez-Tena and the wounding of his 16-year old in their home west of Hermiston, Ore. The perpetrators were masked and armed.
Others charged in the crime include Jesus Pineda-Cruz, 38, Margarito Morfin, 21, and Ever Alexis Flores, 24.
After shooting Chavez-Tena, 38, and wounding his son, the suspects stole cash and cell phones.

OREGON - ILLEGAL ALIEN FELONS AIDED AND ABETTED BY OREGON GOVERNMENT AGENCIES
From: Les Lemke
For those of you that STILL don't know it:
For a Mexican to cross the border into this country without FIRST
filling out the Immigration and Naturalization forms and being ACCEPTED
into this country as a LEGAL immigrant is STILL A FELONY!
That's a serious crime folks. If you don't think so look what happens to someone who commits a felony in society!
But then, today you have the "Rule of Man" instead of the "Rule of Law." Along with the "Rule of Man" you have chaos - which is exactly what you are seeing in society and government today.
[ Illegal ] Mexican residents gain ID benefits
Consular recognition aids citizenship effort
May 1, 2005
By JOHN DARLING
for the Mail Tribune
For the first time in Ashland ≠ and with no questions about immigration
status ≠ Mexican-born residents of the valley flocked to get a highly
valued card called the matricula consular, a secure ID card that enables
them to open bank accounts, get a driverís license and start on the road
to work and legal residency.
The optically scanned, photo ID cards were given to 200 locals by the
Mexican consulate from Portland, whose officials travel to the main
towns of Oregon once a year for that purpose.
The process took place at Our Lady of the Mountain Catholic Church and
included a "carousel" of tables, connecting locals with vital
information about taxes, employment, community college classes,
police and driving in the United States.
"Iím very happy to get the card," said Vicente Sixtos of Medford,
speaking through a translator from the state Department of
Employment. "Itís very important, because the identification helps
with police and getting credit started with a bank account."
The matricula card has been in use for more than a century and is how
Mexico keeps track of its citizens abroad, as well as to serve as the
most trusted proof of oneís identity, said Jo Murillo-Hannon, a
bilingual driving teacher at Rogue Community College (RCC).
"If anything happens (to a Mexican citizen here) and the parents in
Mexico need to look for a son or daughter, they can easily trace their
loved ones," Murillo-Hannon said. "Without such a card, they may not
know where their loved ones are."
[ Maybe they should STAY in Mexico so their "loved ones" know
where they are at!! ]
Claudia Guzman of Medford, speaking through an interpreter
from RCC, said her three trips to the DMV resulted in widely varying
requests for documents, with the matricula finally being named
as the vital, missing piece of ID.
[ THESE PEOPLE CAN'T SPEAK ENGLISH AND THEY ARE
GOING TO BE DRIVING?? HOW THE HELL DO THEY READ
CRITICAL VEHICLE ROAD SIGNS??!!! ]
"Itís very important," said Guzman. "You canít get a license without it.
And Iíve found out that it will definitely be accepted at Wells Fargo to
open an account."
[ It looks like true Americans need to boycott Wells Fargo! ]
Getting a bank account is key to starting a credit history, as well as
sending money to relatives in Mexico without having to pay a stiff
surcharge, said RCC instructor Margaret Copeland, who teaches a
bilingual course about adapting to American customs, rules and necessary
[ Sure! Why would we in America want them to spend their money HERE
in this country, eh? ]
Oregon, she added, is in a small minority of states that donít require a
Social Security card to get a driverís license. California, Arizona and
many other states have set up that hoop, Copeland noted, thus producing
a ripple effect of Mexican immigrants to Oregon.
[ Oregon is currently run by IDIOTS up in Salem, Oregon! ]
Richard Glimpse of Medford contacted the Mail Tribune about the consular
visit, concerned that the matricula cards are issued to Mexicans "with
little or no proof of an individualís name, date of birth or address ≠
in other words, people who are here illegally."
Consulate official Martin Alcalia from Portland, who was issuing the
cards, said determination of oneís legal status in the United States is
solely the job of the INS and that "itís not a matter for us. We just
care if they are Mexicans."
Applicants for the cards must show an original birth certificate,
official government ID from Mexico or Oregon and formal proof of
address, such as rental receipt or utility bill, said Alcalia.
[ WHAT ABOUT U.S. IMMIGRATION STATUS??? OR IS COMMITTING A
FELONY CROSSING THE BORDER ILLEGALLY NOT A PROBLEM
WITH THE LAW OF THE LAND ANYMORE IN OREGON ?!?!? ]
Using the Internet, an applicantís identity is immediately confirmed
with records in Mexico. The card costs $27 and is good for five years.
Matricula applicants are required to attend a Friday-night class in
which they learn the rules of American culture ≠ basic information about
working, renting, banking, domestic violence even how to cross the
street (pedestrians donít have the right of way in Mexico), said Ruth
Kemmy, of the state Department of Consumer and Business
[ RUTH KEMMY - AIDING AND ABETTING FELONS IN OREGON ]
"Coming from Mexico, some people might think we have all the same rules
here. We donít ≠ and no oneís going to tell them how to behave except
someone who cares about them," said Kemmy, referring to the mostly
bilingual, Spanish-surnamed staff of helpers.
Maria Swann, minority liaison officer for Medford police, said she often
holds classes for immigrants, bringing a cop to answer questions and
help them get used to the idea that they shouldnít be scared of police.
[ WHY SHOULD THEY BE AFRAID OF POLICE IN OREGON WHEN
THE LAW AGAINST ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION ISN'T ENFORCED?! ]
The mobile matricula process is a big event in the Hispanic community
because, otherwise, applicants must travel five hours each way to
Portland to get the card, said Alcalia.
[ This is where you are supposed to GIVE A DAMN! ]
Copeland said the Latino population is widely underestimated here and a
better snapshot of it is obtained by reading the number of Hispanic
births in the Mail Tribune.
[ NO KIDDING! ANCHOR BABIES ARE THE NEW GAME TO BECOMING
A PERMANENT RESIDENT IN THE UNITED STATES! ]
"We are already a bicultural community," she said. "Theyíre our
neighbors and we need to be aware of that and accept it."
[ "RCC instructor Margaret Copeland" - What we REALLY have
here is a subversive agent, with a politically correct title, working
here in the United States. These are the kinds of people who are
working to destroy America as we know it and as our parents
knew it to be. Think about all the Americans who fought for
America and died in World War I, World War II, the Korean "War",
and the war against Communism.
What the hell did they die for, eh? ]
