'Disgraceful' That Man Illegally In US Killed Edwin Jackson

Share

A Guatemalan immigrant who allegedly killed National Football League player Edwin Jackson and his ride-share driver in a crash in IN has been charged in federal court with illegal entry after previous deportations.

Also on Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted about the case.

The Indianapolis Colts released a statement on Jackson's death, saying, "We were heartbroken to hear the news of Edwin Jackson's passing". This is just one of many such preventable tragedies.

On Twitter, the president said that Jackson's death proves we need more stringent measures to bring illegal immigration to an end.

According to the Indiana State Police, the Sunday crash took place when the 26 year old, Jackson, who was passenger in the vehicle, became sick and the Uber driver, 54 year old Jeffrey Monroe pulled over. Orrego-Savala was taken to jail and "accused of driving without a license and on suspicion of intoxicated driving", CNN reported.

Trump was far from the only Republican to weigh in.

Vice President Mike Pence, the former governor of IN, tweeted on Monday that Jackson's death was a "senseless & avoidable tragedy".

A breath test administered at the crash scene found that Orrego-Savala's blood-alcohol content was 0.239 percent, or almost three times Indiana's legal limit of 0.08 percent, according to a probable cause affidavit. Monroe was believed to have stepped out of the auto to help Jackson, police said.

"Absolutely not. He would not want that", Chad Bouchez told CBS News.

"I don't think Edwin would have judged anyone on where they were from or anything else", he said.

Indiana State Police say the man they believe hit them is an undocumented immigrant who has been deported twice. He also has numerous other misdemeanor convictions and arrests in California and in, said Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Nicole Alberico. He was deported to Guatemala in January 2007. It was not immediately clear when Orrego-Savala re-entered the US after being deported in 2009.

It remains unclear exactly when Orrego-Savala returned to the USA after his last deportation.

A Marion County judge entered a not guilty plea for the 37-year-old Orrego-Zavala on Wednesday.

Southern Indiana U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler announced the federal immigration charge Tuesday.

Immigration authorities are working with local police on the case. And while it's tragic, we can really do something here because just by following the law, would be completely preventable and surely by building a wall we can add extra security so that this kind of stuff doesn't happen by illegal immigrant criminals. Bipartisan groups of lawmakers have proposed several possible deals, and Trump has rejected two of them. On the campaign trail, he spoke often about the 2015 killing of Kate Steinle in San Francisco, allegedly by a man deported five times previously. Conservative media immediately seized on Jackson's death to bring attention to unauthorized migration.
