Trump condemns Illegal Immigration following death of Edwin Jackson

President Trump on Tuesday tweeted criticism at Democrats while noting an undocumented immigrant was suspected of killing two men — including an NFL player — in a drunken driving accident Sunday in Indiana

Trump condemns Illegal Immigration following death of Edwin Jackson

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. Police also indicated that Gonsales was driving the vehicle without a license.

Federal immigration authorities placed a hold on him following his arrest, meaning they have requested local police hand him over for prosecution. Both men were outside the auto when a black Ford F-150 drove into the shoulder and struck the vehicle.

Orrego-Savala didn't stop, but police caught up with him and arrested him shortly after the fatal crash.

His attorney, Jorge Torres, told a judge Wednesday morning that Orrego-Savala was distraught and confused by the charges against him, the AP reported.

"We will vigorously prosecute this matter, just like any comparable crime, not because of the immigration status of an accused, but because two innocent men lost their lives in this awful incident", Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said, according to CNN.

Vice President Mike Pence, the former governor of IN, tweeted on Monday that Jackson's death was a "senseless & avoidable tragedy".

The illegal immigrant suspected of killing an Indianapolis Colts player and another man in a drunken roadside crash over the weekend has been charged with a felony immigration violation, federal prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Neither the federal complaint or local court documents shed light on when Orrego-Savala re-entered the US or when - or why - he traveled to Indiana.

On Tuesday, Trump: "This is just one of many such preventable tragedies. This is just one of many such preventable tragedies", Trump said in a tweet, "We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!"

Torres also said that Orrego-Savala's immigration status has no bearing on the crash case.

Wednesday's announcement came after Orrego-Savala was charged Tuesday in a federal criminal complaint with illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien.

Scientists have long thought that exoplanets-planets beyond the solar system-were restricted to the confines of our Milky Way . The mass of the planets range in size from Earth's moon to the massive Jupiter, our solar system's biggest planet.

Jackson, 26, was a linebacker with the Indianapolis Colts and was a passenger in the ride-share vehicle.

Unfortunately, Jackson's death is now being used as a political prop for the administration. "Edwin was loved by all in the Colts organization".

"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", the statement said. The Colts said in a statement Sunday, Feb. 4, 3018, that the team is "heartbroken" by Jackson's death.

"We will vigorously prosecute this matter, just like any comparable crime, not because of the immigration status of an accused, but because two innocent men lost their lives in this terrible incident", Curry said in a statement.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Jackson's family.
