Driver Suspected of Killing NFL Player Was a Twice-Deported Illegal Alien


If there were ever an argument to “build the wall,” the collective bevy of American citizens who've been killed by people who were in the U.S. illegally is it. Now, we unfortunately have yet another example.

Twenty-six year old linebacker for the Indianapolis Colts Edwin Jackson and 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe were killed early Sunday morning by a 37-year-old Guatemalan man who was in the country illegally, didn’t have a driver’s license and had been deported twice before.

Manuel Orrego-Savala — who used the alias of Alex Cabrera Gonsales — is suspected of not only driving under the influence, but also hitting Jackson and Monroe while the two were stopped on the shoulder of Interstate 70 in Indianapolis. Orrego-Savala had been deported twice, in 2007 and 2009.

According to ESPN:

Orrego-Savala, 37, was arrested after trying to flee the scene on foot, according to the Indiana State Police. Orrego-Savala was intoxicated, according to police. He is currently being held in the Marion County (Indiana) jail while the police work with U.S. federal immigration officials. Investigators are also working with the prosecutor's office to file criminal charges.

Jackson and Monroe, of Avon, were on the side of the interstate when Monroe got out of the car to help Jackson, who was sick. Orrego-Savala, who was driving a Ford F-150 truck, drove onto the emergency shoulder and hit the rear of the car, striking both Jackson and Monroe, with one of the bodies landing in the center lane of I-70, according to the police.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene of the crime.

We all know that Orrego-Savala shouldn’t have been in the country on three separate occasions, including this current time. We also know that were our immigration laws concrete enough to not let people back in the U.S. illegally, both Jackson and Monroe would be alive today.
