While the Left is busy trying to make their assisted invasion of the United States legal, the ramifications of their open borders policy is being felt by victims all across the country. More important to leftists than American citizens is the well-being of illegal immigrants, which has been made clear by the rise of sanctuary cities and states and the ignoring of crimes committed by the illegals they’re protecting.
Once again on Sunday, several lives were lost to a person that should never have been in the country in the first place.
As reported at the New York Post, NFL player and Indianapolis Colt’s linebacker Edwin Jackson was killed on Sunday when the vehicle he was riding in was struck by a drunk illegal alien. Jackson wasn’t the only one that was killed, as a ride-sharing driver lost his life as well.
On Monday, the Indiana State Police announced that the drunk driver had been living in the US without any type of identification, which is a politically correct way of saying he’s illegal.
Manuel Orrego-Savala, who was going by the alias Alex Cabrera Gonsales, was arrested Sunday after crashing into Jackson and ride-sharing operator Jeffrey Monroe, who were out of their vehicles on Interstate 70 in Indianapolis. For some reason, Orrego-Savala veered his truck onto the shoulder and struck two men.
Orrego-Savala is a 37-year-old citizen of Guatemala, and has a history of deportation, having been sent home in 2007 and 2009. He was driving drunk and without a license at the time of the incident and tried to flee the scene on foot but was caught.
Jackson was only 26-years-old and in his third year in the NFL. Police say that he was feeling sick, so he pulled over to the shoulder. Monroe then pulled over as well, to see if the driver was alright. They were both struck by the illegal immediately after.
This is another in a long line of illegal alien crimes that never should have happened. These incidents are ignored an downplayed again and again, without regard to how the victims feel. But that’s to be expected from leftists, as all the votes they hope to gain by legalizing all the illegals is worth the lost lives.
