Colts player Edwin Jackson, Avon man killed by suspected drunken driver in country illegally


From Indy Star:
UPDATE: The driver accused of killing Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe was an undocumented immigrant who used a fake name and has been deported twice in the past.
Indiana State Police detectives have determined the driver was 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala, a citizen of Guatemala. He gave police the alias Alex Cabrera Gonsales after the early Sunday crash that killed Jackson and Monroe.
Officials said he had been deported in 2007 and in 2009.
Original story: Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson and an Uber driver were both killed early Sunday after being struck by a suspected drunken driver along Interstate 70.
According to the Indiana State Police, the crash happened shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday along the westbound lanes of I-70, just west of Holt Road.
Police said Jackson and 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe of Avon were standing near a stopped vehicle when a black Ford F-150 pickup truck drove onto the emergency shoulder and struck them both.
“Edwin was an amazing young man that filed our lives with joy and pride,” his family said in a statement to 11alive.com. “He was kind, thoughtful, humble, passionate about football and loved his family. We ask that all who were blessed to have crossed his path remember him and his amazing smile.”

Karma is a slap in the face. The chickens have come home to roost. What goes around comes around. Wonder how all those who believe in open borders, that loved football, are going to handle this?

When did congress become a humanitarian charity organization? There’s always seemed to be more to this great love for illegal foreigners than their apologists state. People who are indifferent to the plight of their own citizens are suddenly instruments of compassion for people born outside of our borders and breaking numerous laws by simply being here? Somehow this fits the agenda of those who own these senators and representatives and like the good tools they are they are parroting their owners demands. I can not believe a man like Schumer is suddenly struck with the desire to crusade for any… Read more »

Although Edwin was making it in sports, this incident is a useful metaphor for what the Dems, RINOs, and DC scum have in store for African Americans, which is being run over and exterminated by Hispanic replacements. I’ll bet a lot of inner-city blacks would love Sen McCain and the rest of the open borders crowd to get them a nice F-150; set them free and fly them to party in Guatemala in lieu of jail time when they commit serious crimes; and make sure the qualification for new construction hires is being an American instead of speaking no English… Read more »

It’s not about race but criminals that have infested every corner of our country, it is illegal immigrants in our land that have tainted our way of living now causing a great divide amongst ALL AMERICANS, yes throughout our history we have had great differences that have cause deep rooted animosity and we have learnt to go beyond. It was BLACK AND WHITE, now it is the ANTIFA, LGBT, TRANSGENDERS, BLACK LIVES MATTER, it is THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, THEY DONT BELONG, they are the ones we don’t want and need. Barack Obama divided us but, did not conquer, otherwise Donald… Read more »

I don’t know why they don’t force a treaty on Mexico to imprison these mutts there. Why should we pay for it? It should be the same for drug offenses. Send them back and they can serve their time in the luxurious Mexican prison.

Well quite obviously, it’s Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver’s fault for getting in the way of this illegal invader of a future democrat that was hammered out of his mind.
After all, we REAL Americans have to respect the drunken illegal invader’s rights and get the hell out of their way.
Just ask any democrat traitor you see, which is every last damn one of them.

A tragedy that never should have happened. Sadly we have enough of a problem of keeping citizens sober and drug free off the roads without having to deal with invaders that seem to have a propensity to drink and drive.
My hearts go out to the two families and their lost.
