Undocumented immigrant accused of killing football player detained twice in Arizona

Jackson, 26, was one of two men killed when a suspected drunken driver struck them as they stood outside their vehicle along a highway in Indianapolis.

The man who allegedly killed ex-Colts LB Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver while wasted drunk has been charged with 4 felonies. and now faces more than a decade in prison.

And on Tuesday, Trump took to Twitter to share his thoughts on Edwin Jackson, a member of the Indianapolis Colts who was killed early Sunday morning by a suspected drunk driver who was in the country illegally.

Orrego-Savala gave police a fake name when he was arrested and also had a blood alcohol level of 0.239, which three times the legal limit in the state of Indiana.

The 37-year-old Orrego-Savala, who had twice previously been deported from the U.S., in 2007 and 2009, gave an alias to officers when apprehended.

During his initial court hearing, Orrego-Savala responded through an interpreter as the judge explained the proceedings and charges. After an attacker, originally from Uzbekistan according to authorities, drove through a crowd of NY pedestrians and killed eight in November, Trump called for an immigration crackdown.

"I don't know why I'm here", Orrego-Savala said.

Janella Spencer, LCHD administrator, stated these are reported cases only, so actual numbers are much higher . The CDC has provided this handy primer to help people discern whether they have a cold or the flu.

The Guatemala citizen, who gave officers a fake name when he was arrested, was deported in 2007 and 2009, and was again living illegally in the US, police said.

A man listed as Alex Cabrera Gonsales - the alias officials say Orrego-Savala used - was arrested in March 2017 in Whitestown, Indiana, after a driving infraction, according to a Whitestown Police report. They're working with United States immigration officials, who have placed a hold on Orrego-Savala.

Indiana State Police identified the suspected driver as Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, an undocumented immigrant who is a Guatemalan citizen.

President Donald Trump reacted to the deadly incident, saying it is "disgraceful", and using it to call upon Democrats to work towards stricter immigration laws. They say he was walking away when they caught him. "Much of such commentary, including tweets by the president, fails to acknowledge that both Edwin Jackson and Jeffrey Monroe lost their lives on Sunday".

"This was a completely preventable tragedy", he told Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

Just over two years later, ICE officers again arrested Orrego-Savala in San Francisco.

"The family is in shock, as you can imagine". He has other "misdemeanor criminal convictions and arrests in California and in", the ICE statement said. They say Jackson and Monroe were struck and killed by a pickup truck driven by Orrego-Savala.
