Suspect in fatal Colts Uber crash now faces federal immigration charges

President Trump tweets about crash that killed Colts player, Uber driver: 'So disgraceful'

Man Who Killed NFL Player in Car Crash Is a Twice-Deported Illegal Immigrant

Indiana State police arrested Orrego-Savala early Sunday after authorities said he drove a pickup truck onto the emergency shoulder on a stretch of Interstate 70 in Marion County, hitting a auto that had pulled off the shoulder.

Per Wells, Monroe was believed to be a ride-sharing operator who pulled over to the side of the road before getting out to tend to an ill Jackson.

Manuel Orrego-Savala, the alleged drunk driver that killed Jackson, is a twice-deported illegal alien from Guatemala who was also driving without a license.

The driver suspected of hitting and killing National Football League linebacker Edwin Jackson and his ride-share driver on Sunday had a prior conviction for driving under the influence and had twice been deported, according to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

'This is just one of many such preventable tragedies.

"Much of such commentary, including tweets by the president, fails to acknowledge that both Edwin Jackson and Jeffrey Monroe lost their lives on Sunday".

Fox & Friends First co-host Robb Schmitt reported Tuesday morning on the mothership morning show that "For Republicans and for the President it is a prime example of why the country needs a secure border". Authorities say Orrego-Savala has twice been deported from the U.S. "There was a different standard". In return, Trump has sought a package of stringent border-security enhancements and immigration limitations.

There's another conservative memo going after the Trump dossier author
Steele, a partisan who hoped to sink the Trump campaign, to continue to investigate President Trump. To the "deep state", the American people's higher interests nearly always coincide with their own.

Colts owner Jim Irsay has offered to pay for both Jackson and Monroe's funerals, the team's chief operating officer, Pete Ward, said. "He was well-respected among all with whom he crossed paths, and he will be greatly missed in our locker room and throughout our entire organization".

Earlier Tuesday, Trump called on Democrats to "get tough" on immigration, citing Jackson's death. Orrego-Savala's blood alcohol level was 0.239 at the time of the crash - three times the legal limit.

IN police identified the suspect as Manuel Orrego-Savala, a Guatemalan national.

Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, was charged with four felony counts related to the crash on Sunday along the Interstate 70 route in Indianapolis. Clearly, the suspect in this case should not have been in the country, and this tragedy is yet another result of our broken immigration system.

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Christopher Coons (D-Del.) introduced a bipartisan immigration plan on Monday, but with it not including any funding for a border wall, the White House quickly slapped it down - calling it "worse than Graham-Durbin". He also has numerous other misdemeanor convictions and arrests in California and in, said Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Nicole Alberico.

Jackson's roommate, Chad Bouchez, responded to Trump's tweetswhile talking to CBS News and said that the 26-year-old linebacker "would not want that".

Jackson played one season for the Colts in 2016.
