President Trump was " ghoulish and inappropriate" as he politicized a drunken driving crash that killed an National Football League player and an Uber driver, a prosecutor said Wednesday. Jail records viewed by Fox News on Monday morning said Orrego-Savala, under an alias, was driving without a license. "State police investigators are working with U.S. Federal Immigration Officials and they have placed a hold on Orrego-Savala".
Jackson and the driver of his ride-share auto were killed after a black Ford F-150 pickup driven by 37-year-old Guatemalan national Manuel Orrego-Zavala struck both of them as they were standing on the side of a highway near their stopped vehicle.
A test showed his blood-alcohol content was almost three times Indiana's legal limit of.08.
Orrego-Savala's DUI conviction was in Redwood City, California, and he has numerous other misdemeanor convictions and arrests in California and in, said Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Nicole Alberico.
Manuel Orrego-Savala, wearing an orange jail suit during a court appearance, was charged with two counts of failing to remain at the scene of an accident and two counts of causing death while operating a vehicle above the legal alcohol limit.
"Depending on the results of that investigation, either Prosecutor Curry's office or mine, or both I guess, in the event he used false information in both Boone and Marion Counties, will review those findings for possible perjury, forgery, false informing and identity deception charges, among other potential charges", Meyer said Tuesday, according to WBIC.
The rebuke came a day after the president, an immigration hardliner, said it was "disgraceful that a person illegally in our country" killed Jackson.
It's unclear when Orrego-Savala entered the United States for the third time, and when he arrived in Indiana. This is just one of many such preventable tragedies.
Trump called Jackson's death "so disgraceful" and called on lawmakers to get tough about illegal immigration. 24-Hour News 8 reported on Tuesday that Orrego-Savala had a DUI conviction in California in 2005 and was twice arrested by deportation officers in California.
"We must. Guarantee this never happens again by building a wall, ending sanctuary cities, and stopping illegal immigration once and for all".
"Edwin was loved by all in the Colts organization", the team said.
"We admired his outgoing personality, competitive spirit and hard-working mentality", the Colts said in a release.
A witness in the area noticed a Hispanic male walking away from the crash scene and told him to "freeze", then told the trooper that it was that man that had crashed his pickup truck into Monroe's auto.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Jackson's family.
