Trump ties National Football League death to illegal migrants

Authorities say Orrego-Savala was deported in 2007 and 2009, and was living illegally in the U.S.at the time of the crash.

Jackson and the driver of his ride-share auto were killed after a black Ford F-150 pickup driven by a 37-year-old man struck both of them as they were standing on the side of a highway by their stopped vehicle. Jackson and Monroe were pronounced dead at the scene.

As Orrego-Savala waits for his first hearing, we wonder whether Trump would have been so quick to condemn the driver if he was of a different ethnicity or if he was a legal resident. Trump referred to Jackson's death as "disgraceful" and called on Democrats to work with him on border security and illegal immigration.

Manuel Orrego-Savala, the man accused of killing a Colts player and his Uber driver in a crash on I-70, has likely been convicted in IN once before, says Boone Co.

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.

Police said after the truck hit them, Orrego-Savala then tried to flee the scene on foot before being arrested.

In the 2005 case, he pleaded no contest to two separate drunken driving offenses and was given a brief jail sentence, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Tuesday.

Orrego-Savala was arrested following the crash early Sunday along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis.

President Trump has weighed in on the death of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson, who was killed over the weekend in a suspected drunken-driving accident involving a Guatemalan citizen living in the USA illegally. "We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!"


Trump tweeted Tuesday: "So disgraceful that a person illegally in our country killed @Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson".

Since the 2016 campaign, Trump has regularly pointed to crimes connected to illegal immigration as evidence that the US needs to build a wall along the Mexican border and tighten immigration policies.

Authorities say the man suspected of causing the collision Sunday has twice been deported from the U.S.

Jackson started in eight games with the Colts in 2016.

"According to court documents and jail information, Alex Cabrera Gonsales is the same person as Manuel Orrego-Savala, the man now in custody in Marion County for allegedly causing Sunday's crash", the statement read.

State Police Sgt. John Perrine said investigators believe Monroe was already dead when the trooper's vehicle hit him in the center lane.

Steinle's death was often cited by Trump as a reason to crack down on illegal immigration.

He sat out the 2017 season on injured reserve. He was signed by the Arizona Cardinals in May 2015 and released by the team about three months later.
